review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-05-18 08:16
Blood Promise by Richelle Mead.
Blood Promise - Richelle Mead

Spoiler Alert: Rose is super badass. 

 

I have just finished Blood Promise by Richelle Mead which is the fourth book in the Vampire Academy series, which by the way, was amazing. 

 

So through this book Rose is basically going around killing vampires in the hopes of finding her true love Dimitri. She goes to his family, meets them, hangs with them for a bit and then continues on her quest to find Dimitri. Her goal is to do what he would have wanted her to do before he got turned into a vampire, kill him. 

 

But when she finally meets him, apart from the red eyes that she could never get used to, she can still see the old Dimitri that once loved her. She can't bring it to herself to kill him until she has to leave. But she can't leave until she has done what she came to do. With still being able to see into Lissa's mind due to the bond, she see's that she's in danger because of Avery. 

 

This book kept me on my toes. I can't wait to read the fifth book but I don't have it yet because it's still coming to me via mail. But for now I'll enjoy Caraval by Stephanie Garber. 

 

5/5 Stars from me!

Blood Promise - Richelle Mead

Vampire Academy Series Book 4

Blood Promise update! 

 

So far with this book, it's been so good. It's very different from the other four. So far Rose has gone to Dimitri's home town to be with his family. She has met Sydney as well and Abe. She's now finally met Dimitri in his other form.

In one of the other books in the series Dimitri said to Rose that he would rather be killed then be awakened. He's now changed his mind and loves every bit of it but Rose knows that deep down he wants to be killed or that's what I think anyway. 

 

I really like how this book is going. I hope it's good till the very last page. 

 

I must ALSO add in that I haven't been reading much, but when I do read I end up reading a lot of the book.

 This book keeps getting better and better. I'm enjoying this series a lot and don't want it to end. When it does end, I'll be quite upset that there's no more books to read in the series. But I might have a look and some other Richelle Meads books such as her Bloodlines series.

Promise of Blood by Brian McClellan - My Thoughts
Promise of Blood - Brian McClellan

I enjoyed this book far more than I thought I would and I don't know why I held off reading it for so long.

Promise of Blood is a military fantasy filled with political intrigue and not a little magic.  It has everything I like in it, an engaging plot that's full of believable twists and turns, characters that are flawed but have redeeming qualities and have logical reasons for doing what they do, and a world that's familiar yet different.  As I read, I found myself laughing in some places, tearing up a time or two, sitting on the edge of my seat anxiously and even cheering a time or two.  And for a change, most of the characters are over the age of 25!

McClellan's world-building is nifty.  It took me a bit to catch on to what everything meant, to be a Marked, a Privilege, Knacked and how gunpowder and munitions fit into things, but once I decided to just let it flow and not worry about things, it all became easier.

I think much of that is that McClellan is just a good storyteller.  He kept my attention and the pages turning with great anticipation.  This was one of those books that I was anxious to finish but damned reluctant to reach the end.

I hope the second book in the series goes on sale soon so I can add it to the TBR.  I need to know more about what happens to all my new friends but I can't afford the $13 it'll cost me for ebook right now.  But it's most certainly on the list... HIGH on the list!

Oh, and look at that cover!  I'd hang that on my wall, it's that cool!

Blood Promise
Blood Promise - Richelle Mead This series is going to kill me, uuuugggh. I don't have it in me to write a real review, so the spoiler is just a lot of me rambling about this book and series and does contain spoilers.

I hate what happened with Dimitri, I hate that Rose had to suffer through attempting to kill him twice in a short space of time, I just hate it all. But I love to hate it. Or hate to love it? I figured out that Abe was her dad pretty quickly, so that wasn't particularly shocking for me. What did shock me was her mom's reaction when Rose got back to St. Vlad's and saw the scarf. I'm curious about Rose's parents, now, more than I was before.

The thing with Avery was so bizarre and really pissed me off. I figured out she was a spirit user like two seconds after she was introduced. I started to doubt it for a while, but the way Lissa started acting so weird and Avery kept pushing alcohol at her seemed too much for coincidence. Her having two people bonded to her was really weird and I wish more had been explored with that.

I'm curious about the Alchemists and hope we learn more about them in the next couple of books. I didn't really like...uh...Sydney? But I also found her kind of amusing. I'm hoping she makes an appearance again later on.

Part of me wants to cheer for Rose and Adrian and ship them, but I'm too loyal to Dimitri. Maybe it's because he reminds me so much of my husband and Rose reminds me of me, idk. I just love them and I want there to be a HEA for them. Or at least something better than what it looks like they're going to have. I accidentally spoiled myself (probably for something that doesn't happen until the last book), I think, so I'm not giving up on that hope.

I loved meeting Dimitri's family and I loved all of them. I'd like to see more of them at some point. I also thought the spirit user and shadow kissed couple Rose met were interesting, and I think they'll be showing up again, too. Lissa, Rose, and Adrian have a lot to learn still, and I'm kind of hoping for there to be some kind of gathering of the spirit users so they can all compare notes and maybe learn more about what they can do. I'm still confused about why there are so many things they can't do, like how Lissa can't dreamwalk and Adrian struggles with healing, and I don't think either of them can do the mind entering thing Oksana can do.

While I really enjoyed this book and had a hard time putting it down, it wasn't my favorite. It was also probably the most painful book. My heart hurt for Rose throughout the entire book, but I thought she was kind of stupid to have not considered that Dimitri would want to make her strigoi. I still think he loves her, even if he never gave that as a reason for him wanting her. Maybe that's foolish of me, but I want it to be true.
