Blurb: Dimitri gave Rose the ultimate choice. And she made the wrong one...After a long and heartbreaking journey to Dimitri's birthplace in Siberia, Rose Hathaway has finally returned to St. Vladimir's Academy - and to her best friend, Lissa. But Rose's heart still aches for Dimitri, and she knows he's out there, somewhere. She failed to kill him when she had the chance. And now her worst fears are about to come true - Dimitri has tasted her blood, and now he is hunting her. Only this time, he won't rest until Rose joins him...forever.

Review: Could this series get any better? was what i thought when i finished the fourth one but it certainly did!! This series just blows my mind and beats all the other series and books i have read. What's not to love? There are two amazingly hot guys. Romance to make you fall head over heels. Action that never stops with so many twists and turns. Thrills to keep you turning the pages. An AWESOMESAUCE main character who kicks butt and has a very strong will and a big heart. And so I say again...What's not to love?!!

I think that by now you all know the story lines so i will only give a short summary this time. This book leaves off from Blood Promise. Rose has been recieving letters from Dimitri that tell her he is coming to get her. To kill her. But when Rose graduates she is thrown out into the big world where she isn't always protected. The twists and turns will shock you and the romance will make your head swim. Rose finds herself in trouble wherever she turns and she has no idea where she will end up. The only thing she truly knows is that she must do everything to keep those loves safe and must do anything in her power to save Dimitri, no matter the consequences.

This book is just too good to be true. I love everything this book has to offer. Rose is just amazing. I love everything about her and i honestly think that she is the best book character i've read about in a long time. Her humour and sarcasm just make me laugh. The situatiosn she's in either make me want to be her, make me cringe, make me sad (had tears at one point) and i just think she is one hell of a character. She is strong, determined, will do anything to protect thsoe she loves.I feel for Rose and to be able to be her for one day would be awesome.
There were some scenes in this book where i was just wanting to shout at some of the characters. Dimitri for example, when he was with Rose and i just wanted him to see sense (you will know what i mean when you read it).

And Dimitri and Adrian....Now those are two very HOT guys. I love them both for totally different reasons. Dimitri is strong, protective, loving, has dry humour, is extremely yummy (RUSSIAN HOTNESS) and in a way he is a lot like Rose which makes them great for each other. Adrian on the other had is sarcastic, funny, rude, an alcoholic (is it weird that i love that about him ahha), loves Rose even if she still has feelings for Dimitri and will do anything for her if she asks. I would be happy to have one of them, let about both! Rose is one lucky girl.

The plotline as always is brilliant and that ending.....just WOW!! I expected a few things (stupid me for reading spoilers for the last book) but some things i didn't expect AT ALL!!
I do not want this series to end and thinking that there is only one more book left makes me very sad....*eyes well up* But i know that it will be a great ending, i can feel it and I'm glad there is the Bloodlines series because i cannot get enough of this world that Richelle has created. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.

Rating: 5 stars!! But i wish i could give it more :)


  1. I'm actually really jealous of you lol! I remember the thrill I went through when I first read the series. It's one of my all time favorites! Rose is the perfect woman in my opinion. I wish I was as strong, and confident, and impulsive as her. She's so fiery! And I'm definitely go with the flow water :( My favorite book was Blood Promise all the way but Spirit bound was a close second!

  2. I wish i was like her too!! :) and to be honest i think i love all the books just as much as each other and for all different reasons :D I think i have the plot lines for each book burned into my memory!! I know that in the future i will be re-reading this series again!

    Thanks for the comment!
