    “In an undertone I murmured This isn't over I won't give up on youI've given up on you he said back voice also soft Love fades Mine has” “You forget I have an addictive personality I'm addicted to you Somehow I think you could do all sorts of bad things to me and I'd still come back to you Just keep things honest okay? Tell me what you're feeling If you're feeling something for Dimitri that's confusing you tell me We'll work it out” This book is like magic I loved it once again I loved the characters and I loved the action Let's start from the beginning1I loved the letters Dimitri sent to Rose I know it was threats but I loved it It’s a shame because if I could dream I know I’d dream about you I’d dream about the way you smell and how your dark hair feels like silk between my fingers I’d dream about the smoothness of your skin and the fierceness of your lips when we kiss 2I love Adrian but he doesn't fit with Rose She loves Dimitri and I accept that but I don't want her to hurt Adrian That's not fair “But Rose? While I'm fine with you two dating and being happy please try not to break his heart too much when the time comes” He is so cute “I'm sorryBe sorry you lied he said pressing a kiss to my forehead Don't be sorry you loved him That's part of you part you have to let go yeah but still something that's made you who you are” He is also a little bit crazy “Dreams dreams I walk them; I live them I delude myself with them It's a wonder I can spot reality any” 3 I don't know how Eddie agrees to break Victor out of his prison He sacrifices everything for his friends I really admire him 4Abe Abe Abe I love that man He is amazing “Most fathers don't threaten to disembowel their daughter's boyfriendsThat's not true And anyway that's not what I actually said It was much worse” Poor Adrian 5I hate Victor but I don't know how I feel about Robert He seems so lost But he gave us important information about the stake charmed with spirit After we learnt what we wanted they escaped 6I loved Lissa's and Christian's teamwork to learn how to stub a Strigoi And thank god Lissa learnt And Lissa and Christian together forever 7DIMITRI IS NOT A STRIGOI ANYMOREYEAHHHHH I felt so happy I cried again and then I was angry because Dimitri felt guilty and pushed Rose away He can't forgive himself for what he did to herNot only that but he adores Lissa Rose went through hell and back to save Dimitri and he just pushed her away 8Rose was so hurt that Dimitri rejected her and she turn to Adrian for comfort TERRIBLE MISTAKEI will admit that I loved the scene that almost had sex and he end up drink from her 9ueen Tatiana is dead and Rose is the number 1 suspect because Tatiana was found with Rose's stake 10Tatiana's letter Vasilisa needs her spot on the Council and it can be done She is not the last Dragomir Another lives the illegitimate child of Eric Dragomir I know nothing else but if you can find this son or daughter you will give Vasilisa the power she deserves No matter your faults and dangerous temperament you are the only one I feel can take on this task Waste no time in fulfilling it

    This book is crap and Rose is a shameless gold digging two timer Yes yes I am in a minority here but it won't be the first time nor the last Spirit Bound is a bad book and I am contemplating to remove Richelle Mead from the list of the authors whose writing I care to follow She can join my black list next to Beth Fantaskey and Maria V Snyder I was willing to give VA another chance after the disappointment Blood Promise was but no this series is taking its path into oblivion along with Richelle's Georgina Kincaid books Mead just can't produce this mediocre mess destroy her characters for the sake of cheap relationship melodrama and contrived love triangles and expect me to eat it up No thanksNow for the good We are back to the cast of characters we came to love in the first 3 books Eddie Mia Christian As I expected reading Blood Promise almost none of the million characters introduced in it are back they have served their filler purpose and now dead and gone Lissa comes into her own powers and is an admirable person now Lissa's and Christian's relationship is back on track which is great because I still have no idea why they broke up in the first placeNow for the bad Where do I start? How about the only feelings Spirit Bound was able to elicit in me were boredom and mild annoyance? It is surprising how a book so action packed can be so thoroughly boring A lot of things happen in it Rose takes her final pre graduation trials she steals important prison files she breaks into a maximum security vamp prison then there is a final altercation with Dimitri But just like in the latest installment of Mead's Georgina Kincaid series these events are glossed over everything happens without much effort there is no tension build up before each and every one of them the characters don't experience too many obstacles and therefore there is no real feeling of something important happeningAlso the highest point of the book happens at about 300 page mark What comes after is just added on drama that comes out of nowhere is Richelle paid per page? I just can't believe that this kind of story is what Mead had pre planned for the series according to her she plots her series in advance If I knew that's the shape the series would take I wouldn't have bothered to read Vampire AcademyAnother thing What kind of relationship do Rose and Adrian have? It's not only unhealthy it's just wrong What Mead has achieved with it is that now I am all on board with RoseAdrian pairing in the end I used to be a Team Dimitri girl but not because I like Adrian now but because they would make a mighty good couple Rose can fantasize about Dimitri while blood whoring with Adrian he seems to be just fine with his status of sloppy secondsdoormat and Adrian can get drunk continue spending his daddy's money and drag Rose around to parties to get a kick out of his parents and get Rose humiliated by Moroi snobs What a pair they make Then there is Rose's inconsistent behavior one minute she wants to kill Dimitri another she will do anything to save him; one moment she is in love with Dimitri another she is getting it on with Adrian deus ex machina Mikhail anyone? how convenient; redundant conversations; masked party what was the point?; miraculous prison break etc etc I can go on and on with this tirade but honestly why? I think I am done with this series For all I care the entire cast of characters can die well they are sort of already dead to me due to the author's skillful treatment and I won't blink an eye Why oh why did I buy previous installments? There is no chance I will ever re read them

    4 Restored Stars SpoilersSpirit Bound the 5th book in the Vampire Academy series was a good read but it was a bit slow On top of the slow down in the book Rose was with Adrian and that bugged me Rose loved Dimitri yet she was kissing and almost having sex with Adrian It made her seem fickle I liked Adrian but I don't want him with Rose Then there was the fact that the whole time she was with Adrian she was telling Dimitri that she loves him and wants them to be together again I mean I can get that Rose liked Adrian he is sexy and sweet but she should have stayed away from him until she was sure her and Dimitri were over Dimitri was so depressed in this book I can totally understand his guilt over all the things he did as strigoi My heart broke that Dimitri kept pushing Rose away Overall this book was good but I would have like Rose and Dimitri time I can't wait to read the next one

    The good news is this Spirit Bound is better than Blood PromisesNow let's all take a deep satisfying breath of relief for thatBut there is bad news The character of Rose for me takes a huge hit in this installment Spirit Bound is fairly well written The pacing is pretty good in that you don't have an opportunity to get bored There are three points in the book that I really feel SHOULD have received far attention and detail than they shouldRose's exam Victor's rescue What shall be hereto referred to from now on as the stupidest act performed by Rose Ever and the battle with DimitriThere are many things in this book that I wish hadn't received uite so much attention such as parties family visits and general faffing about To use another strange collouialismDespite that the book is great except I'd really like to strangle Rose ReallyI wouldn't necessarily consider myself Team Dimitri or Team Adrian I may lean towards Adrian a little but her obsession for Dimitri makes me think that she's nowhere near good enough for him and therefor should stay with Dimitri AND DIEHow am I supposed to respect a heroine who uses her boyfriend's credit card to pay for her trip to Vegas with friends? Not to mention the money that she had already swindled from him to finance her little trip through Serbia Then what was with her running around loudly declaring her love to Dimitri WHILE SHE IS SUPPOSED TO BE DATING ADRIAN?Seriously I just wanted to smack her Dimitri wasn't much better As my little computer gaming brother would say Less and PewPew Other characters were awesome and well written it ended on the most horrible cliff hanger and I'm considering starting a petition to make it illegal for authors to finish on such a very tense noteOver all it's a a much better read than Blood Promises There were aspects of this book that annoyed me but I really enjoyed reading it regardless and now I'm eagerly awaiting the sixth and final installment

    heres for u people 2 enjoy found itVampire Academy 5 Spirit BoundAuthor Richelle MeadChapter OneLissa stared at the letter in shock But not as much shock as me I memorized the letter the Dimitri wrote meYou forgot another lesson Never turn your back until you know your enemyis dead Looks like we'll have to go over the lesson again the next timeI see you which will be soonLove DThe words were strapped into my head and they weren't moving anywhere The words 'Which shall be soon' kept on running through my head Like a fish that's stuck on a hook I paced around the room frantically hoping for something to come to my head The stake was still in my hands and was starting to get really sweatyRose Are you even listening to me? I mean what are we going to do? She was freaking then me I don't want you to get hurt Please I need to helpHer words sunk into me Giving me no choice but to bring her with me My mind blew up with uestions when my thought was decided What if she got hurt? What about killed? What if her spirit starts to take over her again? What if starts to take over me? My head start to hurt It isn't natural for a girl like me to think this muchRose She yelled in my face Talk Let it out Dont keep everything inside I know you dont want me to control you're life but you have had that same facial expression for almost 2 minutes straight and thats not normal She pleaded You're scaring meJeez what are you? My therapist I told herShe gave me a sincere smile since i changed my expression and spoke out loud However i still needed time to think so i just sat on her bed and dug my face into my hands hoping for her to understand Her response was to sit by me and wrap her arm around me Close enoughI cant just bring Lissa alone I would bring my mom Maybe But if i said even a word about leaving the academy again she would lock me in my room So mom is definitely off the list Uhmmm Christian? Nope there fighting anyways and i do NOT want to lose my concentration if those two are arguing Damn I can think of anyone I'll think of someone laterAlright Liss you can come with me I told her But i don't want any uestions about it right now I'm still not even sure im going yet Which i we probably are But for now i think im going to stay at the academyLissa's eyes flew up with a huge grin across her face like a 5 year old on Christmas morning Oh Rose You have no idea on how much i missed you She suealedAlright Liss I laughed I need to go and talk to Alberta and enroll into this hell school againThis going to just like when me and Lissa came back to St Vladamir's before except this time I'm facing it alone Right when i walked out of Lissa's door eyes turned to me Oh great i thought to myself And so it has begunThe walk to the office was totally akward I saw some faces i knew stare at me Like the girls that Lissa hung out with when she was going through her crazy phase with spirit Then i saw Christian look at me like i was some ghost that came back from the grave I mean he was staring at me like when in movie some kid that randomly stares at you and then a second later they hit a wall or fall into a trash can but no There was no trash can Making that expression stay on his faceBut it wasn't just Christian it was everyone They were staring at me with same confused and surprised expression Except for Mia Mia was standing there with a grin slapped onto her face she walked up to me which everyone of her other friends were to scared to doMia's blond curls bounced as she walked toward me Her grin was still placed on her face Me and Mia have been on okay terms now ever since Mason died I gues you could call us friendsHey Rose havent seen you in a while She smiled How has it been?Uhmm good? Me and Mia may not hate each other but that doesn't mean i like her enough to trust herShe just gave me one of her smiles and left Guess she had nothing to start gossip about Good i thoughtWhen i reached Alberta's old but again new office she was sitting in her desk reading something on her computer When she looked up and saw me she waved me to come and sit downSo Rose? Have you decieded yet? She smiled at meYup I'm going to stay But have you talked to anyone about putting me back in line to be Lissa's guardian? I askedThat's wonderful Rose Then she smiled and it wasn't one of her i feel bad for you smiles And yes i have Rose I see that you are wearing you're hair up today and almost everyone has noticed the marks on you're neck After seeing how well you do they have decided to give you're position as Lissa's guardian back However you must remain at the academyReally? It was that easy I cheered Thank you SO much AlbertaWith that i walked out of the room Then i saw the perfect person to take with Lissa and I at the end of the year I walked up to him on put on my sly grin He was already smiling before i even started to walkSpirit Bound chapter 2Rose Hathaway is asking me Adrian to help assist her? Adrian smirkedMy smile was long gone by now and this converstation was really starting to turn out annoything then i thought How many times do i have to go over this You Are Coming With Me And Lissa To Kill DimitriWait I thought you told Alberta that you;re staying until you graduate? He uestionedI amWhat if he gets here before you and Lissa graduate? He might bring a whole army by the sounds of what you did to him He smirkedI ignored that second part not wanting to get the thought in my head You think i havent considered that? It's just that i cant make Lissa leave Not now at leastSo leave her behindThis coming from the guy who was actually begging me to come back to Lissa because i left herHe didnt have a reply Good i thoughtWell i said i would come was his replyUhmm no No you didnt say anything yet I smirked with a wink That outta' get his attentionHmm He started I guess that ueen Tatina wouldnt mind a responsible adult taking care of her apperntice So i guess i should comeYou? Responsible? Thats rich I laughed But good You're a go Lets just hope Dimitri doesnt come before thenHe just smiled excused himself and went to go find Lissa for there sunday lessons Since i was going to be doing things like i used to before i left i thought i should go to church For old times sakeThe walk to the chapel was worse to the walk to Albertas office Maybe i should go to my room i thought No Im going to have to have to face this sooner or later and sooner is way better People were going to ask how my journey went so instead of telling them i tied up my hair into a bun showing my marks The second my mark was visible i heard people gasp Jeez wannabes i thought to myselfWhen i finally reached the church there was a new priest Yet somehow he knew me Rose Hathaway he smiled It is a pleasure to meet you I am Father Shay please sit downWhat happened to the other guy? He was pretty old but i'll miss him He gave me the first clue with Lissa and her powers and out bondI forgot how boring curch was when Father Shay started talking I remember why i went to church before to see Lissa And only Lissa After another 10 minutes i just tuned my self outThe thing finished about an hour later I nearly ran out of the chapel happy to smell the fresh air not some strong vinegar type scent that the priest calls 'holy water' The air was cool and moist just the way it was in Russia THat reminded me I should call the Belikovs soon to let them know im okay I might even call Abe because of the good mood im inI walked back to the dorm eyes then before for some strange reason People were still gasping and making a big fuss over my marks I thankfully saw Lissa and ran over to herLissa Lissa I yelled at her Wait for a secondNot that she needed to i could catch up to her easily as a dhaphirRose How was church? She laughedI shot her the look of death she remembered how much i hated church Even though i forgot You know how much i hate church I shot back at herThen why would you go? She musedI dont know People were staring and i saw the chapel and the old priest was so nice what happened to him anyways? Curiosity popped in my head againRose he was almost a 100 years old Those eyes were deep and full of sorrow And get this the new preist is only human He's not a moroi or dhampir or anyhing Just humanThats strange i thought Why would the academy higher a human priest? Why would a human priest want to talk about history thats not even from his own race? Why would he even want to talk about any history? Liss probably missed the priest then me He helped us so much before we knew about spirit and when she was in the chapel but not in the attic he would help her inderstand her powers from what he knewThat is strange but he seemed nice enough I said Probably to scared to say anything to usShe laughed and rolled her eyes Probably

    35 starsI can't believe I listened to this in one day 500 pages has never gone by so fastAt this point in the vampire academy series I'm kinda ready for it to be over I think Rose is absolutely ridiculous and annoying and i'm so tired of her childish words and actions The last book is sooo long but it seems like everything could've just wrapped up during this one so I have no clue what else there is to solve which is irritating Regardless I can't resist an interesting vampire story and I did enjoy this book better than the previous one
