Shadow Kiss (Vampire Academy, Book 3)
I was anxiously waiting for this book to come out, and I bought it right away! Happily, I was not disappointed. The first two books in this series were excellent, but this third one managed to surpass them.
This book is far more dark and emotional than the first two. In the first two, Rose is still underage, but as this book starts, she's very close to her 18th birthday and graduation, and begins to truly mature. Sadly, with the events of the last book and the things she deals with in this one, she grows up fast.
Highly recommend this series! The next one is scheduled to be published in September '09 - I can't wait!
