I've been anxiously waiting for this book to finally release and I was not disappointed. This book had a darker edge to it, and Rose is going through alot dealing with Mason's death and trying to find her place in the Moroi world. When she starts seeing ghosts she thinks she is going crazy, but is that really it, or is the reason because she is closer that world? We get to learn alot of new interesting things about being Shadow Kissed in this book and about having Spirit. With an ending that will leave you shocked and dying for more, this was my favorite entry so far into the Vampire Academy series. I can't wait for book 4!!!!
