Publisher's Summary

Is Rose's fate to kill the person she loves most? It's springtime at St. Vladimir's Academy, and Rose Hathaway is this close to graduation. Since Mason's death, Rose hasn't been feeling quite right. She has dark flashbacks in the middle of practice, can't concentrate in class, and has terrifying dreams about Lissa. But Rose has an even bigger secret.... She's in love with Dimitri. And this time, it's way more than a crush.

Then Strigoi target the academy in the deadliest attack in Moroi history, and Dimitri is taken. Rose must protect Lissa at all costs, but keeping her best friend safe could mean losing Dimitri forever....

Back to school! Listen to more titles in the Vampire Academy series.

    I absolutely love this series. Not the biggest fan on the voice of rose but the narrator still did a great job!

    "This Series Keeps Getting Better"
    Where does Shadow Kiss rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Shadow Kiss is among the best audiobooks in its genre and is easily the best book in the series so far. The world and characters that were introduced to readers in the first two books really come to life in the third.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It's a tie between Rose Hathaway and Christian Ozera. These two have been solid throughout the series, but the bond that they share is a highlight of Shadow Kiss and helps both of their characters to grow in new and really exciting ways.


    Which character – as performed by Khristine Hvam – was your favorite?

    Christian Ozera. Khristine is able to perfectly capture the snark and dark wit that everyone loves about him.


    Any additional comments?

    Shadow Kiss is funny, action-packed, and full of great character moments, and all of this leads up to an explosive finish. The last chapters of the book will have you pulling out your hair, only to leave you dying to read the fourth book. The ending is amazing, but Vampire Academy may be left forever changed.

    "Awsome book!!"

    Really exciting book. Believe me, this is the best of all the vampire academy series. In this book, Rose Hathaway kept seeing ghosts (Mason). Did he come for revenge, or for something else? I read the whole series in less than a week, great book.

    "LOVE THIS SERIES!!!!!!"

    I cant get enough of this series. I am sooo into the YA / Desperate love story type of books these days. This story will tug at your heart alot and make you cheer for the characters. Beautifuly writen. Cannot wait to read more of her stuff. Im flying thru the Vamp Academy series. High ranking in my opinion. Highly recommend this book to anyone no matter what your age. Sooo into the paranormal romance novels. If you like vampire, paranormal, desperate, forbidden love stories then you will love this book series.

    "Series is getting more intense!"

    So far the 3rd book is my favorite of the series. The first 2 are really good, but this one has more action and the characters are filling out more emotionally. The voices still sound like their to young but the story is good enough to look past that. The last few hours you can't stop listening. I loved the ending and can't wait for the 4th book. I believe there are going to be 6 total books. Great Listen!

    Great book. So far best in the series. The fourth is out and I am ready for it to be in Audible. So please hurry and get it so I can continue. I would hate to go to the store to buy the CD.

    "Will brig a tear to your eye"

    A most beutiful love story and truly an epic tragedy. Richelle Mead maintains the high standard she has set with her previous two books her.
    I hunger for the next instalment.
    This series sits along side my Stephenie Meyer Twilight and Alyson Noel Immortals series as a great work of art and wisdom.

    "Love it."

    Shadow kiss is definetley the best of all series. But to read this, I suggest you have to be alleast 14 or up. I love this whole series and unlike Twilight, Richelle Mead made the story unpredictable so.....yeah. If you enjoy romance or vampire books, this would be the best choice.

    "LOVED IT!"

    I enjoyed the first two books alot but this book really grabbed me and drew me in. There was so much action and I just love Rose and Dimitri as a couple,,well if they could be a couple (though Rose's feelings are growing stronger by the day) there are parts in the book that are very shocking, without giving anything away I highly recommend this book and I can not wait until August for book 4 to come out. Praying Audible gets it as soon as it's released.

    "Rose"
    What other book might you compare Shadow Kiss to and why?

    The third book in a Sarah Fine series about different types of elements and their realms in the supernatural worlds ( meaning not vampires) but have parallel themes plots and subplots, as wells are the archs of main character in these different universes. Basically still supernatural fantasy based, but with tolally fresh and different kinds of "being s, but the core of what one would love about foundations of the base character development and overall storyline are the same, in a fresh, non copycat way. The first novel is called Sanctum ( the series name escapes my memory, but sometimes along the lines of 'Shadow worlds guardians ' or other)


    What about Khristine Hvam’s performance did you like?

    Very good,


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Entertaining in an easy, and indulging war,, experiencing these emotions, but in a softer and not overwhelming too overbearing appropriate considering the context and it's relatively to these genres and age targeted content matters intended for.


    Any additional comments?

    A nessisary "bridge book/ story " needed as a part to complete the overall storyline of the whole series, meaning , nessasary but and needed for the grant scheme, but not quite as enjoyable as some of the others as a standalone novel, however I don't exactly mean worse or bad either. Cause it covers important things that if left out the.seirse arch would not.make sense, just less on the scale of getting complete satisfaction with reading it alone ( you are left feeling the need to read the next in line to fill that , and do still need it nonetheless)

    "shadow kiss"

    I wish I could give this book higher than five stars. I gave that rating for the first book and this is definitely the best in the series so far. What struck me the most was the character development. I went from intensely disliking Rose to loving her. This book was just as impossible to put down as the others, if not more so. There were some truly heart renching moments and the narration was much better. The best novel I've read in a while.
