Bitter sweet but a great wrap up to the VA series. I was relieved with the ending but wasn't completely over the moon with rainbows and butterflies. I think that is how it should be though, not too perfect. Honestly, I could have read a few more books in this series. I would not have wanted a love triangle but I would have enjoyed reading more Rose, Dimitri, and Adrian and how the world is changing after the Academy. And Abe. I would have like to read more of his "business". I'm going to miss Dimitri. And his Roza. I will probably have to re-read this sometime in the future because I read it too fast the first time through. I just thank goodness that all the books were out in the series. I would have hated to wait through some of those cliffhangers. Thank you Richelle Mead for another great series.
