Book: Blood Promise (Vampire Academy #4)
Author: Richelle Mead
Publisher: Penguin Razorbill, 2009
Rating: ****/5 Stars


Rose is a dhampir (a guardian for mortal vampires, Moroi) who is dropping out of school to go after Dimitri, Rose's romantic interest who was recently turned into a vampire. Her job is to go to Russia, find him, and kill him.


I loved Blood Promise. Richelle Mead created a complex character out of Rose. Not only is she her usual badass, snarky self in this book but she also shows her weakness, her love for Dimitri. From the beginning of this book, the reader is drawn to the different characters that we are introduced to and a whole knew setting.

Sydney's character as an alchemist was very interesting and I am excited to read Bloodlines after. I also liked Abe's character and I knew something was up with him from when Sydney described him. I loved finding out who he was at the end (saw it coming!).

The twists and turns in this book were so interesting. I loved when it would get steamy and then would hate when Rose was so weak she needed to be carried down the stairs. I kept screaming in my head THIS ISN'T YOU! The escape scene in the mansion was so wicked and you finally felt like the real Rose was back.

Overall, I give Blood Promise 4 out of 5 stars. There was some blood whore talk I didn't like but I really loved how complex Rose's character is. I also have really come around to liking Adrian.

What were your thoughts on Blood Promise? H\ave you read Bloodlines by Richelle Mead, did you like it?

Happy Reading,



  1. I can't remember if I saw the Abe twist coming but he's such a fun character! I love him in the Last Sacrifice. As for Bloodlines, I've only read the first book but they are pretty good too! Glad you liked this one :)

  2. I can't wait to read the next two books!! The characters are just so amazing.
