Shadow Kiss Summary
The book follows the life of Rosemarie Hathaway, a Moroi vampire attending St. Vladimir’s Academy. The story begins with Lissa Dragomir, a runaway from the same school, being brought back by Rose and Dimitri Belikov.
Lissa is the last living member of the Dragomir line and is therefore in constant danger from Strigoi, vampires who feed on the living. To protect her, Lissa has been hidden away at St. Vladimir’s since she was five years old.
As Rose and Dimitri try to reintegrate her into school life, they are constantly shadowed by two guardians assigned by the academy: Tasha Ozera and Christian Ozera. Tasha is a Moroi and Christian is a Dhampir, a half-human, half-vampire.
Rose has always been attracted to Dimitri, but she knows that it is forbidden for them to be together. However, when they are sent on a mission to rescue Lissa from the Strigoi, they finally give in to their feelings for each other.
