BLOOD PROMISE is the fourth book in the international Number 1 bestselling Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead is NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE.

Higher Learning. Higher Stakes.


The recent Strigoi attack at St. Vladimir's Academy was the deadliest ever in the school's history, claiming the lives of Moroi students, teachers and guardians alike.

Even worse, the Strigoi took some of their victims with them . . . including Dimitri. He'd rather die than be one of them, and now Rose must abandon her best friend, Lissa - the one she has sworn to protect no matter what - and keep the promise Dimitri begged her to make long ago.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly brilliant 4 Mar. 2010
    By Jo
    I cannot even begin to tell you just how brilliant this book was! There are so many reasons, and it was so different from what we've read so far in the series, and I could just gush forever, but this is a review so it needs some semblance of coherency.

    I'll start with the differences. In all the other books, Rose and Lissa have been together, and if not at school - as is the case in Frostbite - they have always been with the students and the school authority figures. Not this time. Rose spends pretty much all of the book in Russia, away from school, away from anyone to reprimand her for breaking any rules - and there are no rules. She's out in the world on her own, with only her training and her own idea of what's sensible to guide her, and it's great to see Rose going about things as she wants and she sees fit. It's refreshing, but also worrying.

    This doesn't mean we leave Lissa, Christian and Adrian behind. Rose does look in on Lissa through their bond several times throughout the book, and through it we follow the sub-plot at St. Vladimir's; there is a new head teacher, and with him comes two of his own children, Reed and Avery. And Lissa's erratic behaviour becomes increasingly more worrisome for her friends, for Rose, and for herself. It may seem convenient that we're able to get to this sub-plot through Rose and Lissa's bond, but there is always a reason for Rose to check up on Lissa, rather than just "oh, let's go see what Lissa's up to." It's very well done, and it's great to be able to keep up with both girls.

    We meet a fair number of new characters in this book, and it's just awesome!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly good series...not just for YA! 27 Aug. 2009
    I only started this series because I was really stuck for something to read, and I had enjoyed previous works by Richelle Mead. I was hesitant at first for a couple of reasons; the main one being that it is aimed at YA's, and another being that the description of this new vampire world seemed complicated and even tedious.

    Now, 4 books in, I cannot wait for the next installment to come out, because these books are simply AMAZING! If you haven't started them yet, stop reading and go to the first book - I don't want any spoilers to ruin the journey.

    Although it is aimed at YA, the subject matters that Mead handles are far from juvenile - the build up of the last 3 books comes to an emotional sort-of climax (still plenty of plot for sequals by the end-thank god!) that had me feeling grief, despair, hope, anger, joy, the list goes one point I was crying so hard I had to stop reading for a few minutes. Not every reader will have the same reaction of course, but Mead has managed to create really realistic characters that we love for themselves, flaws and all.

    There isn't really much I can say on the plot without giving stuff away. 'BLOOD PROMISE' starts where book 3 left off: Rose has left the Vampire Academy - and Lissa - to hunt Dimitri, her love and newly turned Strigoi. The main bulk of the book is, obviously, taken up with Rose's hunt and what happens when she eventually finds him. We are given regular updates on Christian, Lissa and Adrian though by Rose's visits into Lissa's mind however, which balances the book out.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Friends divided 24 Jan. 2013
    St Vladimir's has been attacked and as a result Rose has lost everything she holds dear. She had to choose between Lissa and Dimitri and has now journeyed to Russia to fulfil a promise to Dimitri. As Rose travels she doesn't realise the horrors and revelations in store for her, nor does she realise just how much danger she has left Lissa in and it quickly becomes clear that the risks are greater than ever before.

    This is the fourth book in the Vampire Academy series (after Vampire Academy, Frostbite and Shadow Kiss) and if you're new to the series I'd recommend going back and starting with the first book. This review is also likely to contain spoilers for the earlier books.

    I was really looking forward to this installment after the dramatic end of the previous book, but I have to say I ended up a little disappointed. The book has a dark and at times dismal feel and is much heavier in subject matter than the previous installments. The storyline is divided between Rose's quest to find Dimitri in Russia and Lissa's school life at St. Vladimir's which means there are two entirely distinct plots at the same time. The plots are well written and both build to dramatic endings, although I felt Rose's dragged at times.

    Rose has travelled to Russia in search of Dimitri, essentially in order to kill him. Along the way she is introduced to Sidney and the existence of Alchemists who have existed for hundreds of years to protect humans from vampires (both moroi and strigoi) and their dhampir guardians.
