Book: Last Sacrifice (Vampire Academy #6)
Author: Richelle Mead
Publisher: Razorbill
Rating: ****/5 Stars

In the final installment of the Vampire Academy series, Rose is put into danger at ever increasing odds. She is put on trial, locked away in prison, escapes, hides out with a bunch of vampire hippies living in the forest, finds a lost princess, and ties all the loose ends together.

Last Sacrifice, to me, felt like it was too good of an ending. While it was action packed and there was a great smutty scene to make us all woo over the loving couple, it just felt too perfect. Lissa and Rose remain best friends and Dimitri is back in everyone's good books.

When Rose, Dimitri, and Sydney go to seek safety with the Moroi, Dhampirs and humans that live in the forest I felt like these people came out of nowhere. Here we are ending a book and this entire group of people that live a totally different lifestyle to the one that Rose lives are being introduced to us. I am not sure if they will reappear in the spin-off series Bloodlines but I want to know more about them.

Rose's dad, Abe was amazing in this novel. Showing absolute faith in his daughter despite only knowing her for a couple of months. Abe's unconditional love for Rose was very nice to see and his flirtations with other women were quite funny to read.

I was very surprised about Jailbait and who she was. I am excited to continue on that plot line with Bloodlines which I just picked up. I also think the only person who didn't get a good ending was Adrian and I hope he reappears in Bloodlines with a better life for himself.

Overall, I give Last Sacrifice (Vampire Academy #6) 4/5 stars. Everything I wanted to happen happened but I thought some of the plot lines were random and may be leading into the new book series which I didn't like when I was reading the ending of one series.

Have you read the Vampire Academy series? If so did you like it? I haven't seen the movie but I heard it wasn't great.

Happy reading,

  1. Agree about the addition of random plot lines. They were definitely setting up the Bloodlines series. I didn't mind so much since I was starting that series anyway but I can see how that would be frustrating since an ending is supposed to wrap everything up and not really start anything new. I'm glad you liked this one though! VA is a favorite series of mine. I thought the movies was okay. It definitely could have been better :/
