Rose has been imprisoned for Queen Tatiana's murder. Her trial date has been moved forward. That may sound like a good thing, but when there are no suspects and very little clues it truly isn't. If things progress as quickly as they seem, Rose could be dead in two weeks. In a desperate attempt to buy more time to find the killer(s) and spare her life, Rose's father and friends team up to break her out of her confinement. The elaborate scheme involves putting Rose, Dimitri, and Sydney into hiding. Rose being the type of person that she, can not just sit back and do nothing. She needs in on the action and that's when things get interesting and eventually someone will make the ultimate last sacrifice. 

I really enjoyed this book. We're introduced to another branch of Moroi, the Keepers. They reminded me a little of  the Amish. We also got a look at what it takes to become the Queen or King of the Moroi. Plus, there is a lot of action and a twist at the end that, I must confess, I didn't see coming. For that alone I give this one a 5 out of 5 stars rating. Don't you just love it when each book an author writes in a series just keeps getting better and better? I know I do. So sad that this is the last in series, but thankfully there will be a spin-off series called Bloodlines.
