Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead

I don't think I can do a review for this book.

I have been thinking about it since completing it Wednesday and it's just too hard to put into words how I feel about the book, and specifically how the end of this series is making me feel.

On one hand, I love having an ending, but on the other I hate to see the series end. It's even different than Harry Potter because when I read the last Harry Potter I was so excited and I wasn't nearly as involved in the book world as I am now, so I just wanted the book, I never thought about the fact that it would be over. I was 15 and dumb.

This time though with my second favorite series I knew what was coming and I knew that this would be it.

Yes, there is a spin off and yes I think it will be amazing but still it won't be Rose, and that is what has me so messed up today.

Last Sacrifice as a book left me satisfied, more than satisfied really, but I don't know what I'm going to do now.

What will I do without Dimitri, Rose, Lissa, and Adrian?

I feel pathetic because I actually cried when I reached the end. This is just what books do to you I guess. I can't imagine not being a reader and not having this emotional pull to characters that feel more real to me than people I know in the real world.

I don't know how nonreaders make it through life without this.

Last Sacrifice is a great end to an even better series, I'm just sad to say goodbye.

I just finished this last night and I'm definitely feeling the way you are. The Vampire Academy series has been part of my life so to say ever since I read the first book a couple of years ago, and every year, I've always been happy to get another addition or two because I've truly grown to love Dimitri, Rose, Lissa, and Adrian. And to finally have this great series be complete makes me sad, but the ending was truly amazing, and even though I wish this series could go on and on, I know that all good things must come to an end. Plus, knowing that Bloodlines is coming out soon makes me less sad to see the series go because even though Rose and the gang won't be the lead characters, we'll still get to hear about them. And who knows, maybe Richelle will decide to continue Rose's story some day down the line. :)

I completely understand how you feel - I felt the same way after finishing the Hunger Games trilogy and even some stand-alone novels. I am sad when they end which is really a testament to those writers. I have heard so much about the Vampire Academy series and need to check it out!

I'm only two books into the series. But I know how you feel because that's what I felt with Harry Potter. I was a bit older--20ish when the last one came out. I'd waited for each book all through and high school and college as they'd come out and it was so bitter-sweet when the series ended. So I understand.
