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...

Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson and Robin Wasserman Review

Tales Of The Shadowhunter Academy Review...
Tales Of The Shadowhunter Academy chronicles Simon Lewis’ time as a ShadowHunter in training. 
4.5 Stars as a collection (5 on Goodreads)!
I’m using TFTSA as my book by two authors, as it’s by multiple authors. If anyone wants me to name just one story by two authors in the collection, then I choose Born To An Endless Night. I explain why in my review, below...

Welcome To ShadowHunter Academy
I loved this short story! 
5 Stars!
We get introduced to our main characters from the previous TMI books. Simon, our main character is entertaining as he tries to remember who he is or was before he lost his memories in City Of Heavenly Fire. We get a cameo from Isabelle who offers her heart to Simon. He however says that he isn’t interested in a relationship until he can remember who he was.
The new characters we’re introduced to are either students or teachers at Shadowhunter Academy. One student in particular, George, becomes Simon’s…

Starlight Nights (732 Days #2) by Stacey Kade Review

Hey ForeverBookers,
“Starlight Nights”, the first book that I read this year was fantastic! It was like a soap opera with how many storylines it had. There was a love story, a selfish parent story, a drugs story, a friendship story, along with more. The book is long enough to fit all those different stories too as it’s 400 pages.

"Starlight Nights" is the second book in a series of linked contemporary standalone novels. I say linked because there’s a character featured as a side character who’s a main character in the first book 738 Days by Stacey Kade, too. I read this as a standalone, though and it was fine. 

I read “Starlight Nights" for the “A book that’s published in 2018” goal on the Popsugar Reading Challenge. 
Netgalley were kind enough to grant me a review copy of “Starlight Nights” so it’s thanks to them as well as the publisher that I’ve been able to read and review this...
Calista and Eric are the main characters. “Starlight Nights” is told from both of their per…

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.…
