Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead

Book 5 in the Vampire Academy Series
This series is marketed to young adult readers

Rose is a Dhampir born to a race of people who live their lives guarding the weaker and frail Morai. Morai are the good, born vampires that do not kill. As Rose is preparing to graduate high school with her best friend, Lissa, a Morai princess, she is determined to find a way to save her formed boyfriend, Dimitri. Dimitri is now an evil, turned, vampire, a Strigoi, and is out to kill Rose.

The book resolves very little in the overall story and doesn't quite give the type of emotional pay off I wanted. Rose's live seems to be on hold. Interesting, but not very satisfying. I hope the story doesn't get drawn out forever. The Morai, Dhampir race relationships are interesting. As are the Dhampir lives and the choices they make, especially the woman. I'll be waiting for book 6.
