Shadow Kissed by: Rachelle Mead

Publication Date: Nov. 13, 2008


Is Rose's fate to kill the person she loves most? It's springtime at St. Vladimir's Academy, and Rose Hathaway is this close to graduation. Since Mason's death, Rose hasn't been feeling quite right. She has dark flashbacks in the middle of practice, can't concentrate in class, and has terrifying dreams about Lissa. But Rose has an even bigger secret . . . .She's in love with Dimitri. And this time, it's way more than a crush.
Then Strigoi target the academy in the deadliest attack in Moroi history, and Dimitri is taken. Rose must protect Lissa at all costs, but keeping her best friend safe could mean losing Dimitri forever…

My thoughts: Victor finally gets his day on court....and after a lot of begging and some pulled strings (thanks to Adrian), Lissa and Rose get to attend. 
Unfortunately for Rose that's about when she starts going crazy...or so she think. Mason appears to her many times in the book, little does she know at first, he's trying to warn her of a future attack on the school.
Rose and the other novices start guardian exercises one in which you have to follow your assigned Moroi around to protect them from fake attacks. Rose has to guard Christian instead of Lissa and she's not happy. Eddie is guarding Lissa. After Rose freezes on an attack the school figures out that Rose has been under too much stress and cut back on her and put her into counseling. 
Rose and Dimitri finally hook up------AMEN!
After the hook-up they are on their way back to school when the strigoi attack. Dimitri sends Rose for help with the code word Buria , which is Russian for Storm. 
In the fight the school loses 15 moroi and 12 guardians...they kill 28 strigoi. But the strigoi kidnapped 13 moroi and guardians.
In a mission that could kill many they set out to get back their stolen ones. In that fight they lose 6 guardians and Dimitri is taken and according to masons ghost he's now Strigoi.
Rose sets on on a mission to kill the one she loves.

My rating: 5 stars
