How far will Rose go to keep her promise? The recent Strigoi attack at St. Vladimir's Academy was the deadliest ever in the school's history, claiming the lives of Moroi students, teachers, and guardians alike. Even worse, the Strigoi took some of their victims with them. . . including Dimitri. He'd rather die than be one of them, and now Rose must abandon her best friend, Lissa—the one she has sworn to protect no matter what—and keep the promise Dimitri begged her to make long ago. But with everything at stake, how can she possibly destroy the person she loves most?
My thoughts: Rose travels around Russia in order to find Dimitri to kill him. Along the way she meets Sydney, and Alchemist.
While rose is away from st. V's, a new headmaster steps in named Eugene Lamar. He has a daughter and a son named Avery and Reed! Avery's guardian is Simon. Avery unfortunately for everyone at school is bad news. She influences Lissa in the wrong ways causing many problems in Lissa's life.
After Rose kills 2 strigoi she passes out. After she wakes up she learns that she is at Dimitri's old home with his family. While there she meets Olena (his mom), his sisters: Sonya, Karolina, and Viktoria, plus his grandmother Yeva. she tells them about the attack on the school and everything that happen to Dimitri.
Rose is threatened by a man named Abe Mauer---who she later learns is her father. So she leaves town to finish her hunt for Dimitri and she finds him. Instead of killing him he takes her captive and hold s her against her will. Dimitri begs her to let him change her but she wants nothing to do with it. Finally she escapes and fights with dimitri on a bridge, where she think she has killed him. Only later she receives a letter from him telling that he wishes her luck on her trials.
Trails in which make her a guardian...Rose passes the test with flying colors and is now able to be someones guardian.
