Shadow Kiss, by Richelle Mead

The Sequel to Frostbite

This book is the best in the Vampire Academy series thus far! Non-stop action cover to cover so intriguing you cannot put it down until the last line is read. Then you'll be marking off the days on the calendar till the next book "Blood Promise" comes out. The ending will have you biting your nails and agonizing over every turn. This is a must read!

In this novel there are 3 types of vampires:
1) Moroi (Born vampires)
2) Dhampirs (half breed - vampire/human) Sworn to protect all Moroi from Strigoi.
3) Strigoi (extremely powerful vampires that have been damned and will stop at nothing to kill all Moroi.)

Rose (a Dhampir) falls hard for Dimitri (a Guardian Dhampir), but struggles to keep focused on Lissa (a Moroi) the Princess she is sworn to protect at all costs. Rose is Shadow Kissed and makes the startling discovery of what it truly means. She begins to question her life and her decision to be a guardian. She is also having flashbacks, terrifying dreams, and trouble concentrating in class.

Victor (bad guy in the last book) is on trial and tensions flare. The Academy is under attack. Moroi use their powers to fight alongside the Dhampirs in an all out war with the Strigoi. The book builds to an unbelievable climax that leaves you with a satisfied ending but with a promise for a great next book. If you find this interesting you must go back and read the series from the beginning.
