Lissa Dragomir is a Moroi princess: a mortal vampire with a rare gift for harnessing the earth's magic. She must be protected at all times from Strigoi; the fiercest vampires—the ones who never die. The powerful blend of human and vampire blood that flows through Rose Hathaway, Lissa's best friend, makes her a dhampir. Rose is dedicated to a dangerous life of protecting Lissa from the Strigoi, who are hell-bent on making Lissa one of them.

After two years of freedom, Rose and Lissa are caught and dragged back to St. Vladimir's Academy, a school for vampire royalty and their guardians-to-be, hidden in the deep forests of Montana. But inside the iron gates, life is even more fraught with danger…and the Strigoi are always close by.

Rose and Lissa must navigate their dangerous world, confront the temptations of forbidden love, and never once let their guard down, lest the evil undead make Lissa one of them forever…


Have you ever come across series, that no matter how many times you read it, you love it every single time? VAMPIRE ACADEMY is that series for me, I had read it multiple times and I feel like every time I read it, I love it more. It had been few years since I re-read the first novel, and just like first few times. It was breathtaking. Despite fact that I had re-read it multiple times, I didn’t want to put the book down even if I knew what was going to happen. VAMPIRE ACADEMY has a lot going on, from the start of the novel, to the end and afterwards you will find yourself eager to pick up FROSTBITE . What is there not to love? There are Vampires, a vampire guardian training school and there is quite bit of action. VAMPIRE ACADEMY isn’t a book about love, or in their case, forbidden love but it’s also about the true meaning of friendship, sacrifices. It’s one of my favorite series about vampires.

I love the friendship between Rose & Lissa. What the two of them have is a meaning of true friendship. Fact that the two of them are bonded together, which is what, saved Lissa’s life in the end. I could see that Rose would do anything, in order to protect Lissa from danger, any type of danger. The friendship between the two of them, reminds me a lot of my best friend, there isn’t anything that I wouldn’t do for her. Even if the two of them had their moments, in the end they were still there for one another. I can’t even begin to imagine how it is to feel other people’s emotions like Rose was with Lissa. I was as worried for Lissa as Rose seemed to, there were much more going on with her, then either of them realized. I could tell from start of the novel, that those two are going to stay friends for years to come. Their friendship, it felt real to me.

Dmitri, what is there to say about him? He’s every girls dream guy, or at least that the feeling that I got. I loved his name and fact that he is Russian, considering that’s where I am from originally so it hits close to home. You could see the bond, the attraction between two of them fast, even if Dmitri denied it but I understand why he did. But that scene between the two of them, that was breathtaking and I was smiling it through it all. When Dmitri told Rose that he doesn’t feel like that about her, my heart broke for her even if I know that it wasn’t the truth. You can’t help but wonder what will happen between the two of them now, considering what almost happened between the two of them. They were my favorite couple pretty early in the series, they had an unique sort of relationship. You can’t help but wonder what is in store for two of them next.

RICHELLE MEAD has a way to surprise you, by throwing unexpected twists that even you didn’t see coming. I had met her back in 2012 at a book signing, she’s one of the sweetest people I met, and been one of my favorite authors since I first read the series. Richelle is type of author that will have you craving for her next book. So far, there hasn’t been a book of hers that I didn’t love. I can’t wait to see what story she will come up with next. Do you love vampires? Romance with action and twists? Pick up VAMPIRE ACADEMY , because once you do, you will be hooked.
