This book was so amazing.
My friend recommended it for me because I was into the Twilight series.


I love the forbidden romance in it.
Between a teacher and a student.
It doesn't get much better then that.
Also, it's not just a romance, there is tons of action also.
It has you on your toes the whole time trying to predict what will happen but you never seem to be able to.

Rose is a member of a half-human, half-vampire guardian class dedicated to the protection of the elite vampire-pure bloods called dhampirs. Her job, or future job, is to protect Lissa, a Moroi or full vampire, who just happens to be her best friend. Rose supports Lissa emotionally, guards her physically, and when Lissa makes bad decisions that could get her into trouble with the school authorities, Rose steps in and takes the blame then, too.

Lissa deserves and reciprocates Rose's devotion. She's an incredibly loyal friend, and repays Rose with the trust and esteem she deserves. She's also gifted, or cursed, with the ability to heal as well as unusual powers of mind control. But her gifts are both forbidden and costly.

This book is intriguing because is has a mix of action, romance, mystery and humor. The friendship between Rose and Lissa makes this book gives readers something to relate to and eds up hooking the readers' attention.Rose's snarky, outgoing, and sarcastic personality adds humor whereas Lissa's shy, compassionate and troubled life adds sympathy and emotional attributes. The next book in the series is Frostbite.

If I could give this book 100 I would. Richelle Mead, is one of the best writers out there. She knows how to write a page turner. This is the first book in the series, and it only keeps you wanting more.You cant help but love Rose, the main Character, she has her own set of rules to live by, The first being protecting her best friend Lissa. The second, seducin her trainer, the hot and desierable Dimirti! (who Id give anything to have him exist for real!) theres so much going on in the private academy that, more books have been written (none of them a disappointment!) 2 THUMBS WAY,WAY UP!

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 Strigos, the world's fiercest and most dangerous
vampires make Lissa one of them forever

my review

My favorite New vampire series, the vampires are unique, royals are to be protected and they can control one of the elements(ex. fire, water, spirit... etc)and then there's the other species call it starts with a d-(i'm just gonna call them d-vampires)they are trained to became the royals guardians. Rose protects lissa(bff's) they ran away from vampire academy a few years ago, soon they finally get caught and taken back to school.they had their teen problems like rebelling, love, social status problems. I just loved the story. Richelle Mead is an awesome writer. I love this book. I'm always looking for a new Vampire books. I totally recommend it for vampire lovers.

From back cover:
"Only a true best friend can protect you from your immortal enemies...
Lissa Dragomie is a Moroi princess: a mortal vampire with an unbreakable bond to the earth's magic. She must be protected at all times from Strigoi; the fiercest and most dangerous vampires - the ones who never die.
The powerful blend of human and vampire blood that runs through Rose Hathaway, Lissa's best friend, make her a Dhampir. Rose is dedicated to a dangerous life of protecting Lissa from the Strigoi, who are hell-bent on making her one othem.
After two years of illicit freedom, Rose and Lissa are caught and dragged back to St. Vladimir's Academy, hidden in the deep forests of Montany. Rose will continue her Dhampir education. Lissa will go back to being Queen of the elite Moroi social scene. And both girls will resume breaking Academy hearts.
Fear made Lissa and Rose run away from St. Vladimir's - inside the Academy's iron gates their world is even more fraught with danger. Here, the cutthroat ranks of the Moroi perform unspeakable rituals, and their secretive nature and love of the night creats an enigmatic world full of social complexities. Rose and Lissa must navigate through this dangerous world, confront the temptation of hidden romance, and never once let their guard down, lest the Strigoi make Lissa one of them forever..."

The back of the book is a bit misleading to me because it makes it sound like Lissa is the main character of the novel, when really Rose is. To me, this is a good thing because I really like Rose... I think Lissa's perspective of situations would be a lot more boring. Vampire Academy is one of my favorite books. Richelle Mead creates an interesting world and does a great job of explaining the complexities of what it means to be Moroi, Dhampir, and Strigoi. I really enjoyed the romantic plot lines as well... that was probably one of the more addicting aspects of the book! 10 out of 10!
