Product Information



The recent attack on St. Vladimir's Academy devastated the entire Moroi world.  Many are dead. And, for the few victims carried off by Strigoi, their fates are even worse.  A rare tattoo now adorns Rose's neck; a mark that says she's killed far too many Strigoi to count. 

But only one victim matters . . . Dimitri Belikov. Rose must now choose one of two very different paths: honoring her life's vow to protect Lissa—her best friend and the last surviving Dragomir princess—or dropping out of the Academy to strike out on her own and hunt down the man she loves. She'll have to go to the ends of the earth to find Dimitri and keep the promise he begged her to make.  But the question is, when the time comes, will he want to be saved? 

Readers who fell in love with Rose, Lissa, and Dimitri won't want to miss Blood Promise, the much-anticipated, epic fourth novel in Richelle Mead's enthralling Vampire Academy series.

Ali 2010-02-10

This is one of those reviews that is very hard to write without HUGE spoilers. So youíre just going to have to trust me Ė itís worth it.

However, Iíve come to a quite dramatic conclusion upon finishing this book. Richelle Mead is the devil incarnate! Oh, the pain, the suffering, the torture that Iíve gone through reading her Vampire Academy series and Blood Promise only offers more of the same.

I was in the (un)fortunate position of having Blood Promise sitting there waiting for me to joyously launch into after the dramatic ending of Shadow Kiss. A far majority of Blood Promise is actually background story. We get to meet Dimitriís family and spend quite a bit of time with them, getting to know them better.† Then there is the mysterious Abe, Moroi godfather look-a-like, Sydney, the strange Alchemist and Avery, the new girl taking Roses place.† So many side stories I was starting to wonder if we were completely changing directions at one stage.

Then WAM, weíre back in the action. Rose is fighting, Lissa is fighting, Adrian is fighting... itís just full on.† All the threads of the story are tightly woven together and the world just suddenly makes sense! I think itís one of the most wonderful aspects of all Richelle Meads writing Ė her wonderful ability to really blind side! Youíre happily travelling along the river of her story, sure thereís a couple of rapids, the odd log in the water, but itís that 200m waterfall that suddenly arrives that gets you every time!

I did find I was a little distracted with the Dimitri thing, but thatís just been my issue through the whole series - that teenage-teacher relationship thing just wigs me out a little (for all that I can understand the fantasy from the teen perspective, and remember the odd crush myself). †My other negative , I found the side-line plots a little long winded. Yes, interesting. Yes, they flowed into the story and pulled it all together, but at the time reading I just found them a little too distracting. The middle of Blood Promise is in some ways a completely different story than weíve been reading in the rest of the series.

†If youíve read the previous three books in the Vampire Academy series, you will adore this Ė and it will drive you completely insane, youíll be cursing Richelleís name too! If you havenít yet embarked on this great teen paranormal series Ė you really must, but please, start with book one, itís most certainly a series best read in order and one that only gets better as the characters get older (and less teen angsty).

So far I can happily say that Iíve loved everything Iíve read by Richelle Mead Ė teen and adult both. She really is quite an exceptional story teller.

Book 5 in this series ďSpirit BoundĒ is out in 2010, I have a Ďfeelingí this is going to be huge.
