Just finished reading it yesterday.
I don't know why. It just made me cry. It was one one of the books that you just look back and see how much a character has grown, how much she has learnt.
Her giving up Dimitri and saying she wants him to be happy was very touching that I just cried.
Rose at book 1 was really looking for trouble. She was a risk-taker, and she pretty much broke the rules. In book 2, Rose was selfish, and she sort of used Mason. In the end, she decided that she didn't love him, and realized doing that was only going to hurt them more. She realized that love could not be forced. -Which pretty much said that she understood what love is, showing her growth from book 1.
Ironically, Rose was the one who scolded her classmates for breaking the rules, while on book 1, she broke the rules herself.
She was a very quick learner, and she understood that she couldn't take on the Strigoi easily, not like she has previously assumed. In the end, she killed two.
What I love about Vampire Academy books is that they are deep. It shows a person a lot: how you could find the strength in weakness, courage in fear, surviving in suffering, love from misunderstanding, and truth in lies.
Grant Hastings was once the leader of an elite special ops team known as The Sebs. Now he’s retired, living alone in a bedsit over a pub, and haunted by the ghosts of the mistakes he’s made in the past.
Then a mysterious woman turns up to entice Hastings and The Sebs back for one last mission, to rescue an anthropologist, son of an esteemed professor, who is feared to be trapped on a sacred mountain in the Himalayas, a place where the locals fear the mythical yeti roams exacting cruel retribution on anyone who strays into its domain.
Unfazed by local superstition and folklore, Hastings and his team see a chance to make some easy money at the expense of their employer’s gullibility.
But once they make it onto the frozen mountain, The Sebs will find that sometimes there is truth behind every legend.
