Richelle Mead was born in Michigan on November 12, 1976. She received a liberal arts degree from the University of Michigan, an MA in comparative religion from Western Michigan University, and a Master in teaching (middle and high school English) degree from the University of Washington. Before becoming a full-time author, she taught eighth grade social studies and English. She writes the Georgina Kincaid series and the Dark Swan series for adults and the Vampire Academy series and the Bloodlines series for young adults.
After a long and heartbreaking journey to Dimitri's birthplace in Siberia, Rose Hathaway has finally returned to St. Vladimir's-and to her best friend, Lissa. It is nearly graduation, and the girls can't wait for their real lives beyond the Academy's iron gates to begin. But Rose's heart still aches for Dimitri, and she knows he's out there, somewhere.
She failed to kill him when she had the chance. And now her worst fears are about to come true. Dimitri has tasted her blood, and now he is hunting her. And this time he won't rest until Rose joins him... forever.
