As lots of you can agree, there're some feels, before the finish line, and you don't want series to end. But...I was really happy to finally cross this line and finish this 2-years long journey with VA.
I wanted to do a full series review, but I changed my mind, So, about this particular book in few words (+some thoughts on stuff in previous books, just for better picture).
This was an awesome conclusion to a good and well-loved series. I started reading VA back in 2011 and devoured first 4 books in 2 weeks (it's still an awesome speed for me). But then I stuck on the 5th one for 2 years...As I told before, I decided to finish this series back in May (2013) and all the roads (long and twisted) led to August, when I finally crossed a finish line and said "bye-bye!" to VA.
The first half of the 6th book was slow and I started worring that it will take me another two years to finish it (and I couldn't efford that! No! No! NO!). So I gathered all the strenght I have and powered through with book. Once I've passed a halfway mark, things started getting better: more action, passion, evil-and-not-really plans, intrigues and all that stuff. So it was easy to accomplish my goal.
I was more than happy with the ending [I love me some HAPPY ENDINGS!]:
-- One of my top fictional crushes survived all this bad stuff and remained sexier than ever :) / Dimitri! Dimitri! Dimitri!/
-- My favorite character - Abe! - was super awesome, as always.
"Sometimes the greatest tests of our strengths are situations that don’t seem so obviously dangerous. Sometimes surviving is the hardest thing of all.". Ah...he's perfect! :)
-- My #2 favorite character - Sydney - got her own spin-off series, which I'm planning to read some time in future (not very soon, because I need to relax from vampire novels)
-- My top love/hate character - YES, ROSE, IT'S YOU - stayed cool and got everything she wanted (to be honest, I liked her more in previous books. She still kickes all asses, but...her selfish behavior made me want to punch her in the face in lots of parts (especiall, speaking of Jill... >:-[ )
And, since ending made me smile (dreamy) I gave this book 5/5 stars (maybe it's too high, but whatever). Overall, I'd rate this series 4/5 stars. Good read, but not the most favourite series of all times.
I've read all the books in Russian on my Pocketbook IQ 701 e-reader and the Last Sacrifice+2 novellas on my sister's e-reader.
Hope you're having a great day! Keep reading and DFTBA!
