Blog 172: Shadow Kiss Graphic Novel

Synopsis of the Book (from Goodreads):
What if following her heart means Rose could lose her best friend forever?

Rose Hathaway knows it is forbidden to love another guardian. Her best friend, Lissa – the last Dragomir princess – must always come first. Unfortunately, when it comes to gorgeous Dimitri Belikov, some rules are meant to be broken...

But since making her first Strigoi kills, Rose hasn't been feeling right. Something dark has begun to grow in her mind, and ghostly shadows warn of a terrible evil drawing nearer to the Academy's iron gates. And now that Lissa and Rose's sworn enemy, Victor Dashkov, is on trial for his freedom, tensions in the Moroi world are higher than ever.

Lying to Lissa about Dimitri is one thing, but suddenly there's way more than friendship at stake. The immortal undead are on the prowl, and they want vengeance for the lives that Rose has stolen. In a heart-stopping battle to rival her worst nightmares, Rose will have to choose between life, love, and the two people who matter most... but will her choice mean that only one can survive?

My Review of the Book:
I absolutely love the cover of this graphic novel. You can see things are going to heat up between Dimitri and Rose. I love the colors that were used on this cover as well.

Things that I liked: I really enjoy this graphic as it continued along the storyline of the Vampire Academy series. I really enjoyed and didn't expect the twist that happened towards the end of these graphic. (I'm sure that if I had read the books I would be up to speed on what is going on). However, this just makes me want to read the series more now than ever before. I had no idea things were going to heat up to that degree between Dimitri and Rose. I also had no idea that Rose was going to have to go after Dimitri. 

Things that I didn't like: I did however thing that they ended this graphic novel on a cliffhanger, but I'm sure they did that with the book as well. Other than that, I find nothing else with the graphic novel. It was well done.

Overall: I enjoyed reading this, and I would definitely recommend to those who have read and who haven't read the Vampire Academy books. I rated this book a 4 out of 5 stars.

Peace and Love to All!!
