Onto book 2. Of my re read. This book is slowly getting darker for the cast. The worlds changing daily since strigoi are getting smarter with how they attack and who if at all make friends with. Could it be Moroi in the government or humans of the world who are don’t know anything of the vampire world. That I can’t tell you. And thru the book Lissa and rose slowly learning more to the dark and finally new element called spirt but thing has you is it even worth to learn since as know more you use the more depressed and insane you get. Plus add in the effect their is a new character in this book and might be cocky as hell but he changes this series big time to be the best it can be. But some things I liked/ loved of this book is the book is getting darker with more deaths in the moroi world and causing fear and panic so made you on the edge of the seat and this book had more of the strigoi factor than book 1 had. And dimka (dinitri) is treating rose more like an adult than a little kid and it’s quite refreshing even though rose is a kick butt women but she can get bratty. Other thing the new character in the book yea a bad influence but deep down he makes for a rock star character and enjoyed them a lot. But over all richelle has made this world slightly dark and more vamp like which I enjoy so 5/5 stars.
