In the real world, you can make your own miracles.
Any thoughts (*No major spoilers*):
It is the second book, and I’m already way hooked. A perfect sequel, to say the least. I couldn’t have asked for anything better.
Going back to Richelle Mead’s vampire world was easy because I knew the basics -- what a Moroi is, what a dhampir is and what their duty is, who the bad guys are. We get to learn a few more things, which excited me. Rose is seriously a fantastic heroine. Sure, she sometimes doesn’t follow some rules (her relationship with Dimitri is an example of that) and she can be reckless, but she can kick major ass. Her voice is outstanding, sharp, and amusing all at once. It’s hard not to be enchanted and to stop reading.
Throw Rose and the other awesome characters into the action-packed plot and we have a masterpiece. As well as drama. Especially boy drama. This will be one hell of a series and I can tell it will rank among my top faves.
