Last Sacrifice (Vampire Academy Book 6) Review

Hey ForeverBookers, I've just finished Last Sacrifice (#6 of Vampire Academy) And it was really good! 

The book takes you on an adventure more so than the other books I believe. Blood Promise and Last Sacrifice are my favourite books of this series because we see Rose fight and stand up for herself more than ever before, I believe. Blood Promise was more about her fighting for the man whom she loved, whereas Last Sacrifice has Rose standing up for everything she believes in!

SPOILERS below for if you haven't read this book OR series! 

Last Sacifice takes the reader on a journey through watching Rose, Dimitri, Sydney, Adrian, Lissa, Christian and other minimal characters stand up for what they all believe in. 

At the end of Spirit Bound (book 5) Rose was accused of killing Queen Tatiana (an offence that would lead to a death sentence for the murderer). Because of this potential death sentence, Rose, Dimitri, and Sydney (a character from Blood Promise) go on the run in the hope of finding Lissa's long lost relative so she can be Queen of the Moroi race. If Lissa is Queen it's thought that Rose won't be charged with murdering Tatiana. They travel far to find what they need to clear Rose of any charges. They come across a camp of Moroi who live by their own rules, not conforming to the majority, 2 slightly villainous characters from previous books, one of which helps turn a Strigoi into a Moroi, that Moroi then helps them by pointing them in the direction of Lissa's long lost sibling. While this is going on for Rose through the bond that Rose and Lissa have we also see what happens to Lissa back at court. 

Lissa, is trying to become Queen to take the pressure off of Rose. The court is busy trying to find a new queen after Rose and Dimitri break out of court to do what they're doing above. This means that Rose doesn't have to hurry quite as much to find out a) who killed Tatiana and b) who Lissa's brother or sister is. She also doesn't have to rush too much to get back. 

We do get to see some romance for both Rose and Lissa separately. Rose's romance was a bit back and forth between Dimitri and Adrian but I'm overall pleased with who she chose to be with. Lissa's romance was only with one person whom I didn't really like in the first book but by the last book, I liked him.

I don't want to put who the sibling is but we've seen them in other books. I'm not going to reveal who did kill Tatiana either as that's also a major spoiler (if you know one or both of these things, please DON'T comment who they are as they're both big surprises). I was shocked when I read who killed Tatiana. 

Overall, I really enjoyed Last Sacrifice and the series as a whole. I give Last Sacrifice 5 stars because it had everything I love: a great plot, romance, humour, action etc. While I'll be sorry to say goodbye to these characters for now, I'll see most of them again when I read the Bloodlines series, which I look forward to doing sometime soon...

This Side Of Murder (Verity Kent #1) by Anna Lee Huber Review...

Hi ForeverBookers, 

I've just finished This Side Of Murder by Anna Lee Hubert and it was great! This isn't my normal type of read but I still enjoyed it. 

NetGalley allowed me access to This Side Of Murder so thanks to them for letting me read and review it.

This Side Of Murder tells the story of widower, Verity. She's going to a house party on an island near England. This story is really about Verity trying to figure out a code as she was a secret code breaker in the war. Verity lost her husband in the War, or so she thinks...
4 Stars
The book is set just after World War 1 so there are some customs that are different to now, smoking being seen as a good or relaxing thing, for example. 
Verity meets another attendee of the party, Max on the way there. They strike up a friendship. The other attendees are rather hostile to Verity. The other women treat her terribly and the other men just seem to ignore her. 
This is a mystery novel where we're trying to work out lots of things.…

The Fifth Letter by Nicola Moriarty Review.

Hi ForeverBookers, a belated Happy New Year to you all! I hope you all had a great Christmas as well. The Fifth Letter was my first read of 2017, and I enjoyed it. It wasn't all that I thought it would be but it still held my attention.

I got The Fifth Letter as a NetGalley arc so thank you to NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to read it.


The Fifth Letter is published on January 24th 2017 but it's is very much an ADULT read! It's is about 4 girls, Joni, Deb, Trina and Eden who were friends at school. They go away to a house for a get together trip in their 30's. The main part of the story is set while the girls are in their 30's. One of them has the idea for them each to write a secret - something they've never told anyone else before but it's kept confidential. Then each one of the girls will read a random secret, and try to work out who it belongs to.

It's  set in Australia, which is a little different as most books I read are set in the USA/th…

This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 

I've just finished an awesome book! I got This Mortal Coil from NetGalley so thanks to them for letting me read it. It was soooo good!! 
5 Stars!!!
This Mortal Coil is a dystopian story that tells the story of Catarina who, along with friends has to find out who she is among the strife of a deadly plague that's killing off the worlds population through hydra clouds. 
The story is told from first person POV, which I loved! I thought the author did a great job at tackling different emotions that our main character, Catarina went through. 
There are too many good parts to quote. I'm not going to do that as this review would be so long if I did but I've summarised what happens below...SPOILERS!!!  
We see Catarina start as a shy girl with not much experience of the outside world become a warrior. Some may class this as a "special snowflake story", whereby Cat is the special one that everyone has been waiting for. She doesn't know this, tho…
