Vampire Academy. Penguin, 2010. ISBN 978-1921518904.
Rose Hathaway is in trouble, BIG trouble for a crime she didn't commit. Being held in prison for the highest offence imaginable: the assassination of a monarch, Rose's time is running out. But the only thing on her mind is getting Lissa acknowledged to the Moroi elite with the note left by the late queen. Meanwhile, Lissa, Christian and Adrian are trying to find out who really killed the queen and save Rose. Can they save Rose and put the real murderer behind bars?
All the favourite characters are back in Last Sacrifice, the last Vampire Academy novel. This novel and the rest of the series was wonderful to read. They were so easy to get into the story line, that I had problems putting them down. Last Sacrifice holds twist and turns readers won't think were coming and other turns that readers want to find. I got to a stage when I wanted to continue reading to find out what happens but didn't want to finish novel because I was enjoying the book so much.
I would recommend this book to teenagers and highly recommend not just this novel but the whole series to anyone wanting to read a brilliant book.
