Vampire Academy- Richelle Mead

Written By: Kellie - Oct• 02•11

Synopsis: St. Vladimir’s Academy isn’t just any boarding school—it’s a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They’ve been on the run, but now they’re being dragged back to St. Vladimir’s—the very place where they’re most in danger. . . .
Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy’s ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi—the world’s fiercest and most dangerous vampires—make Lissa one of them forever. -Goodreads

Review: I recently decided to reread these books because the last two books in the series made me fall in love with these books all over again. It has been a few years since the first time I read these books and I have to say… Vampire Academy did not disappoint!

Rose is such a dynamic character, someone who could really be a role model. Granted, she is far from perfect but she’s kick-ass, funny and incredibly loyal. It was very cool, going back to book one and reliving how Rose’s character started out. The rest of the characters that make up the world of St. Vladimir’s are all pretty fun to read as well.

I think Richelle Mead did a great job of introducing the VA world. Rose and Lissa have been away for a few years so there was a great premise to slowly introduce everything to the reader without going into exposition overload! It’s a really well developed universe with a really creative spin on what a vampire is. I love that there is a clear line between good vampire and evil vampire. If you haven’t read these books yet, it’s a must read for any YA lovers!

Seriously, no complaints here which is rare for me. This was a great start to a great series!  Check back every Sunday, each week I will post a review for the next book in the Vampire Academy series! Next week, Frostbite!
