What if following her heart means Rose could lose her best friend forever?
Rose knows it is forbidden to love another guardian. Her best friend, Lissa - the last Dragomir princess - must always come first. Unfortunately, when it comes to gorgeous Dimitri Belikov, some rules are meant to be broken...
Then a strange darkness begins to grow in Rose's mind, and ghostly shadows warn of a terrible evil drawing nearer to the Academy's iron gates. The immortal undead are closing in, and they want vengeance for the lives Rose has stolen. In a heart-stopping battle to rival her worst nightmares, Rose will have to choose between life, love, and the two people who matter most... but will her choice mean that only one can survive?
This time the author surprised us by leading us deeper in Rose’s link between her and the dead world! Rose need to face her demons; but she also has to deal with Mason ghost that is haunting her lately! I didn’t see everything coming, but some of the plot was very easy to foresee. Once again, prepare your Kleenex (I say that, but I never ever cried over a book) as Rose’s story is darker then we would hope for her. Will she ever find her happiness? Let’s hope it for her!
