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....

Redo The Narration for The Next Books!!!!

I need you guys to finnish redoing the narration on books 3-6 because there is no way I am going to buy them as is, the narrator sounds 12 and I hate background music... I want to continue the story but can't now, unless I decide to read them instead, so PLEASE PLEASE push through the rereading and give us the rest of the books!

My favorite narrator

I really liked the first 3 books. Khristine Hvam does a great job narrating. The storyline is good too. Unfortunately books 4, 5 and 6 weren't as good. I didnt like the narrator's or their heavy overdone accents. I really wish Khristine Hvam would redo the rest of the series. I hope I can return the other books since i just cant force myself to finish any of them. I was hoping to get through the entire series, I went ahead and purchased all of the books but I definitely regret my decision. I'll just have to read the books myself. Khristine Hvam did a great job.

love these books!

the character in the main story is wonderful! choicing that drove me nuts is the chick who read the book cuz she made Rose sound very whiny and I didn't like that because she's supposed to be badass.

Love the story, not the narrator.

I love this whole series. I’ve actually read the books, and wanted to listen to them once I became an Audible member. As we all do when we’ve read a book, I put voices and nuances to each character, and unfortunately this narrator did not meet my expectations. All of the characters sound the same. Of course I understand how hard it is, especially for women, to change your voice to portray a character, but to me this should be a prerequisite for this job. The least that could have been done was give Dimitri his Russian accent and not make Rose sound so whiny.

Getting names wrong

Why did the name change from “Mia” to “mya”? That really bugs me. She doesn’t use a Russian accent for

bad narrator

love this series, very much dislike the narrator. She mispronounces things, makes Rose sound like a whiny brat instead of the badass she is, and just overall doesn't get the book.

Wish we were seeing this

I wish we were seeing this world as a TV series! Yes, I know Julie Plec created a series on Peacock but it was so different from the books that most fans hated it.

The performance of this audiobook was mediocre. The story was amazing.
