I love Sydney Sage, she's a character I feel like I can connect with. Feeling out of place in society, this was more Jill while at Amberwood Prep, but Sydney also felt out of place with the vampires. I too can relate with feeling pressured to impress our parents, or others within a certain society.
Adrian Ivashkov, is perfect. I think we all fell in love with him when he first appeared in Frostbite and what happens between him and Rose is truly heart breaking. He's my baby, I feel as if I want to protect him. He has some pretty funny lines in this book, I can see how Sydney finds him annoying, but that's just the way he is.
From the begging I could see their relationship forming, I ship them already. I need them to be together, they'd just be too cute. When Adrian told Sydney, that she would be “Everything's about my personal entertainment. The world is my stage. Keep it up- you're becoming a star performer in the show.”

To finish this up, I highly recommend this book, if you have read Vampire Academy first. If you were to go in without prior knowledge of the whole "Vampire Academy " world I think it is safe to say you may be lost, and not know all of the backstory. I give this book a 10/10. It's beautifully written and all of the characters too!
