I haven't, I'm finishing up the Sookie Stackhouse series {still on #4} and I'm looking for another series to start.

Have you read others in this series Laura, Cindy?

I haven't been to pick up a copy yet. May have to wait until Monday to get paid, or may run out and get it over the weekend. Checked Audible and they don't have it yet. I listened to the others.

I've been way too busy and exhausted this week to really read anyway, but I keep thinking I have to go get it.

OMG I just finished Blood Promise. AAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!

I really enjoy Richelle Meads other series. My favortie is still Vampire Academy, but Georgina Kincade and Dark Swan books are very good.

I know, Jess!

SPOILERS

Actually, I like the way she went with it. Now, I feel like its ok if she does manage to kill Dimitri. At the end of Shadow Kiss, it was too unthinkable that she had to kill him. Adrian would be good for Rose... Biggrin Of course I know Rose will continue to hope that she can "cure" Dimitri.

Hi, totally new to this board but have been lurking off and on--I LOVED Blood Promise! I was absolutely FLOORED at how good it was. I really like the series, don't get me wrong, but Blood Promise was so deliciously different!

SPOILERS

Did anyone else kind of secretly want Rose to turn Strigoi? Of course by the end I didn't, but when he had her captive and kept biting her and everything--yum.

I had a feeling that it would be the way it was. I am just irked that I have to wait for the very next book. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK! I just know that they are meant to be together forever!!! Whether Strigoi or him cured.

Haven't finished quite yet and didn't read all of this thread, but I definitely have some ideas about what is going to happen

I've just gotten to where she is locked up in the apartment.

I have a feeling Abe is actually her father. She keeps wondering why he cares, and that is the only thing I can think of. She also mentioned the time that Queen Tatianna used her father's name, which is awfully close to Abe (Abraham).

I'm also wondering if Avery is the cause of Lissa's mood swings. Seems like Rose can tell something is wrong, but can't pinpoint it. The only thing that really seems to be the same in the situations is that Avery is there. I could be way off base here, but I just don't get a good feeling about Avery.

Well to see how it all pans out I guess. I have these ideas, just don't know exactly how it all works. I was kind of wondering about Abe too right along with Rose. I mean doesn't seem like the kind to really care if some girl goes all "blood wh*re" unless there is a personal reason. The whole Queen Tatianna name dropping thing seemed to nail it on the head for me.

I finally finished it!

Woohoo for having my thoughts pan out. I didn't know exactly what Avery's deal was or the extent of her "power", it was a bit more than I expected. I just knew there was something off about her.

The Abe thing not at all surprising, though I like how she found out the truth.

I honestly didn't cry. I got a bit teary eyed when she was meeting his family and all, but not at the end. Maybe I'm an odd ball. I have a soft spot for her and Adrian being together though too, so with Dimitri out of the way ...

Loved the ending, looking forward to the next.

Finished it last night. LOVED it. I had a harder time getting into it at first, kind of boring, but there has to be a climax right?! Wink

I really enjoyed this book. I too was kind of wanting her to turn Strigoi. I knew Dimitri would come in again at the end. I knew he wasn't dead. It wasn't right...too quick. I too think Adrian would be good for her, but I will always want her back with D. Delicious D! Wink

Can't wait for the next book!

kelly- you are good! I thought about Abe, but not about Avery!

I was heartbroken at the end of Shadow Kissed thinking it was the end of D and Rose. But, after seeing how D is now, I don't want him back with Rose. It was mentioned in SK when they were kidnapped that the strigoi lose whatever humanity they have left the older they get. In BP, D still wants Rose but is it just because she can help him get the power? If Rose does turn strigoi, how long can they be together before they turn on each other? Unless D can be turned back, I can't see them together anymore. Now Adrian on the other hand... I think he would be good for Rose. Smile
