I want to start this review by saying I have loved every book in the Vampire Academy series. Spirit Bound takes the cake! This is by far the best book in the series (keep in mind I haven't even started The Last Sacrifice yet!). The entire book is full of surprises, and it is really like a roller coaster ride! The best thing (and the most infuriating) about this book is the ending! What a cliff hanger! Richelle Mead does a fantastic job at ensuring that her readers will go out and buy the next book! If I could I'd give this book a lot more than 5 stars!!!
