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 night-time rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi – the world's fiercest and most dangerous vampires – make Lissa one of them forever.
I couldn't stop at one. This is one of the most addictive series I have ever read with Rose as the ultimate strong minded, opinionated and loyal characters on paper. The book follows her as she falls in love, saves her friends countless times and learns that life isn't always black and white. This is a series you'll keep coming back to and enjoy more each time. - Darci (QBD)
While usually sceptical about this genre, I have never read an entire series so quickly and hungrily A new take on vampires that is completely enthralling. Once you have finished with this series be sure to continue on with 'Bloodlines'. P.S The book is better than the movie. reviewed by 30ti
Was not expecting to like this but after repeated suggestions by a friend I bought the first book and was amazed. The characters are interesting. The plot is interesting and what a shocker of an ending. A must buy for any vampire fan.
This Book Is Awesome
Richelle Mead weaves an interesting storyline. Amazing characters and unbelievable events. Unexpected love affairs and the best friendships. Excellent book.
Another great vampire story!
This story has an addictive plotline that sucks you right in! I decided to give this a try as it is sounded interesting and was a story about vampires and I was not disappointed. This book has a mixture of both romance and action keeping you entertained throughout the whole book. There was not one part in this story that I found boring. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good vampire thrill story.
i didnt think i would like this series but i was very wrong the author does a great job a creating a whole new take on vampires and i was amazed at how easy i found it to love or hate the characters.
