This Book is so good that when you starts to read it's hard to stop. I have read this series more than 5 times. One of my favorite Books ever the characters are interesting and each character is unique.
I think Richelle Mead is an awesome author.I can not wait to review the others books of the series ,and first book of bloodlines.
This characters especially the tough girl rose who is half - human and half- vampire who is a guardian for her best friend Lisa her is a Mori ,who is a vampire royalty.While they were living in the outside world the guardians from the vampire academy caught them and return them to the Vampire Academy.While they are there Rose must battle love and a evil person who wants to use Lisa special powers for his own use.
Vampire Academy was an amazing book. I liked how there isn't just one type of Vampire. There are the Strigoi, Moroi, and Dhampir.
Rose and Lissa were friends ever since they were in kindergarten. They left the Academy for two years for reasons that no one knew but them. When they are forced to come back to the Academy things get way more complicated for them.
I liked the friendship between both Rose and Lissa and how they would do anything for each other.
I don't think that I have a favorite character so far for this book. It is a very hard decision. I Love Christian , Lissa, Dimitri, and Rose they are all amazing characters with different personality and depth.
Vampire Academy is defiantly one of my favorite books now. I love it and I want to read to rest of the books in this series.
Rose Hathaway and Princess Valissa Dragomir must uncover the mysteries going on in St. Vladamir's Academy and their world. St. Vladamir's Academy is a school where Dhampir's, half Moroi and half human, learn to protect Moroi, living vampires, from the deadly Strigoi, the vampires we know. Moroi are living vampires who need some blood to survive while each has magic that lets them use an element; earth, air, fire and water. Strigoi are dead vampires that hunt Moroi, especially those from endangered bloodlines and enjoy killing their prey.
There is a fifth element that is just starting to be uncovered; the powerful but dangerous element known as spirit. Lissa is one of the few Moroi who can use it. When Lissa, her family and Rose were in a car accident Lissa used spirit to bring Rose back from the dead. Unknown to Lissa this would bind her and Rose together forever and make Rose Shadowkissed, someone between life and death. Rose's bond to Lissa allows her to experience what her friend sees and feels which comes in useful as Rose takes on her role as Lissa's Dhampir and protector.
Through their bond we get the learn a lot about Rose, Lissa, their relationship as well as their relationships with other characters. This series has excellent character development, especially for Lissa and Rose as they both go on their own journeys. Other characters are introduced in each book while the regulars such as Eddie and Christian develop more. The bond between Lissa and Rose is one of the strongest bonds of sisterhood I have read about. They have and would die for each other. Their bond is one reason why this series is one of my favourites.
The world is full of mysteries that we learn more and more about as Rose explores the world. There are mysteries that even the Moroi and Dhampirs don't know about which Lissa and Rose uncover. The mystery of their bond and Lissa's abilities is the main part of the series which is very interesting to learn about.
This series is action packed, full of suspense, twist, turns and magic. It is written really well and fast passed. I love this series. The magic and mysteries alone are great.
This is a really cool vampire book. Rose is a very interesting character to follow and will have you either yelling at her or laughing with her. With the different kinds of vampires on the campus (Damphires, Moroi, and Strigoi) it can be a little difficult to understand and tell whose who, but after a few chapters things get cleared up. Dimitri, Rose's teacher, is a great love interest and a perfect match for Rose. When Rose's best friend Lissa (the last Dragomire Princess whose family died in a car crash which she saved Rose from by bringing her back to life, causing Rose to be shadow kissed nad have a bond with Lissa) is kidnapped for her rare ability of Spirit, things get steamy between Dimitri and Rose. Mason is also a loyal friend to Rose and an all around good guy, especially when rumors are spread around about her doing explicit things with two guys. Mason also has a huge crush on Rose which turns devastating in the sequel Frostbite.Â
The book was great. So there's this...umm girl who's training to be a guardian or bodyguard basically. Her name is Rosemarie(aka Rose) Hathaway, girl with the looks and an attitude you won't forget. Rose and her best friend Vasilisa Dragomir ran away from their vampire boarding school during high school. Two years after escaping, they are caught and dragged back to St. Vladmir Academy. There Vasilisa(aka Lissa) finds love and discovers her special vampire powers. But Lissa isn't the only one falling head-over-heels for a boy. So is Rose, but it's a forbidden love with an older guardian who is her mentor. Now, if you think the book is only about romance, you're wrong. There's fighting against the tainted Strigoi, vampires who kill humans and Moroi (living vampires, the good ones) and dhampir (half vampire, half humans, the guardians who protect Moroi).
This is one of those books that you hate to put down. I actually read this book in just 2 days. This is a love story mixed in with a hate story. You think that nothing willl happen and then BANG it happens. If you read the first one you seriously need to read all of them! Trust me anyone can and will love this book.
vampire academy is a great book. i thought it was interesting that the auther created a world that had three types of vampires. the moiri (living vampires), dhampire (half vampire), and the strigoi (the immortal undead). moiri and dhampir go to schools around the world to learn how to be proper vampire citizens. this book had a lot of action and great characters. it was a great read.
beats twilight into the ground.... sorry all those crazy edward fans =(

This is A GREAT book. If you have read Evernight then this book will be the perfect match for you. At first it is a little hard to follow the plot but i literally couldn't put it down the whole time I was reading it. The first time you read it you might space out a lttle and be liek 'WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON' but if you power on then it leaves with a need for more. Just a brief summary - this book is about a teenager named Rose. When things get a lottle complicated in her life she turns to love but that doesn't work out either. Her very special bond with her best friend Vasillisa,enables Rose to save her from a life of healing her uncle, the next in line to the throne of the Vampire World.
