“I've been following the story for almost three years now and I can't think of a better ending. I will definitely reread the series again, and again and again. The characters amaze me, and the story is one of a kind. I seriously cannot wait for the spin-off. I just have to see Adrian happy and in...”see full review » see other reviews »

“Last Sacrifice was a huge disappointment for me. I waited for the last installment of Vampire Academy for long months, thinking it would be amazing but unfortunately it was far from my expectations. For my biggest sadness I didn't get that emotional overwhelm I got from the previous books. Yes,...”see full review » see other reviews »

“Such a good series. Much better than twilight for a YA vampire series. Rose is a great character. She finds her way into adulthood. She doesn't always fit the mold but she finds her way. She is strong and fierce. It was great reading the growth of Rose and Lissa through this series. Some things were just heartbreaking. This series seems to stir up some strong emotions in readers whether they like how things turned out or not. There were times in this series that it fit the YA paranormal mold and other times when it stepped into a more fantasy adventure role.
I would recommend this series for anyone who loves the YA books and anyone thinking about trying one of this type of series.
Personally I liked the whole series and did like the journey to get to how this book ended. ”

“It's always sad when a series comes to an end and this one was no exception. I definitely feel that this series had its ups and downs but I'll still miss visiting Rose and her gang of friends.
Throughout this series I had many issues with Rose, the main character. She was sometimes too cocky, a bit arrogant, self-involved, I could go on but sometimes it was these very flaws that made me like her. Ok she wasn't perfect but who is? It was refreshing to have a character with unlikeable personality traits that most people suffer from at times. At the end of her story I feel like we watched her grow and evolve from an immature sometimes silly teenage girl into a strong independent smart woman. It was nice and I ended up feeling a little proud somehow!
I do think that the whole love triangle storyline between Rose, Dimitri and Adrian was played out well in the end and I was glad with the way it ended. It wasn't a surprise however, but still it was the way I wanted it to go so I wasn't disappointed. I also love the whole Lissa becoming Queen storyline. This I didn't expect and I enjoyed the challenges that Lissa had to complete. They were interesting and exciting.
Something that really irritated me about this final book is the amount of loose ends she left. We didn't see how Mikhail and Sonya ended up coping with spirit, we don't know how Adrian will cope without his beloved Rose, we don't know what happened to Eddie or Sydney. What happens to Abe does he go back to Russia or stay with Rose at court? I just don't like loose ends at the end of a book nevermind one thats supposed to be the last in a series. I do know that the author has wrote spin off series to this world but I don't care. This series should have cleared up all questions and loose ends regardless of follow-on series. She should have had enough faith in her abilities to believe that people would still read another series by her without hiding answers from this series in the new one. Urghh annoying....

“A fantastic ending to the Vampire Academy series. I was thoroughly shocked when I found out who the true killer was. However, I love how Lissa and Rose's friendship continues to prevail even after all they have been through.”Paranormal Princess wrote this review Thursday, September 19, 2013.
