drey's thoughts:
Wow. Richelle Mead's fifth installment in the Vampire Academy series definitely doesn't disappoint. It's packed with non-stop action from cover to cover, and I couldn't put it down once I'd started reading.

Rose makes it through the trials and graduates, and goes to Court with Lissa while awaiting her assignment, worried that her transgressions would negatively impact her chances of being assigned Lissa's guardianship. Which is when you'd expect that Rose would be on her best behavior. Instead, she decides to do a little sleuthing, a little breaking-and-entering, and a little getting-a-convict-out-of-prison. Busy, busy Rose. And, because she's super-multi-tasker Rose, peppered in between all that is her trying to save Dmitri, getting Lissa and Christian back together, and dealing with Adrian's feelings for her (and hers for him).

But she finds the political waters at court neither shallow nor calm, as Rose manages to shock, awe, and dismay the Moroi--and the guardians--there. Mayhem and chaos follow, and it's about to get worse. What can be worse than losing Dmitri to the Strigoi, you ask? How about getting him back only to have him not want you around anymore? And tensions amp up a bunch of notches when the Queen is murdered. With Rose's stake.

As you can probably imagine, I'm really antsily waiting for book #6!
