Richelle Mead: The Last Sacrifice

Wednesday Dec. 15 @ Salt Lake City Main Library



If it seems like you can’t sneeze without hitting a pop-culture vampire, you may be right. But author Richelle Mead has effectively tapped into our obsession with all things bloodsucking in her bestselling Vampire Academy series, which follows the adventures of half-vampire/half-human Rose and the Moroi (good) vampire best friend, Lissa, to whom she’s assigned as bodyguard.

The sixth and final installment, The Last Sacrifice, finds the Moroi world in the middle of a struggle for power. And Rose is a victim of that struggle, awaiting execution by the enemies of Lissa. Will Rose and Lissa need to turn to the evil Strigoi for help in restoring order?

Join the author for a special event at the downtown Main Library, which is scheduled to include trivia contests, door prizes and other giveaways, and the chance to identify yourself via nametag as “Team Dimitri” or “Team Adrian.” Trust us, the kids know what that means.

Richelle Mead: The Last Sacrifice @ Salt Lake City Main Library, 210 E. 400 South, 801-524-8200, Dec. 15, 7 p.m., free.
