At the beginning of this book, it was hard to understand. But, as the book went on, it became easier to understand. The book took me a week to read because I just couldn't get into it, but when I got closer to the end, the book got more exciting. I couldn't stop reading it and I had to get the second one after it ended. The beginning was boring because it was just explaining everything.

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.

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 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.

This book wasn't one of the best I've read. I didn't feel like the characters were very relatable (if thats a word). I didn't identify with Rose's I'm-Invincible character or with Lissa. Lissa was quiet, shy and far off. What I did like were a lot of the minor characters like Christian! The story started out an a pretty actiony point in the story so you could dive right in. Overall, it was a pretty fast read and interesting too.

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!

I ordered this book in hopes of finding another vamprie series to enjoy instead of just rereading Twilight over and over again. Man, am I glad I did. This book, and the others in the series are without a doubt the best books I have ever read.

The book starts quickly, with Rose and Lissa being dragged back to St. Vladimir's by the gorgeous Dimitri (my soon to be husband :D) and life at the Academy starts off with a bang. Right at their return their schedules are very busy, and the girls don't get to spend as much time as they would like together.

Lissa is batteling with her Spirit powers (she doesn't know she has them yet) and they begin to cause her depression. Lissa is a cutter, and because Rose is shadow-kissed, she can get into Lissa's mind and always comes to her rescue when she needs it. On top of constantly being worries about her best friend's mental state, Rose is taking two extra training sessions a day from the gorgeous new Guardian, Dimitri.

Right from their first day, Rose feels a connection with Dimitri. Their forbidden romance is extremely addicting, and I kept having to stop myself from skipping over parts just to read about their sessions together. Although Rose doesn't seem to realize it, Dimitri acts just as attracted to Rose but in a secretive and sexy way.

Rose is one of the most powerful and strong willed characters ever written about. She is sexy and flirty, but at the same time she doesn't take crap from anyone, making her the girl that every guy wishes they had and every girl wishes they were. She also goes through struggles that every girl can relate to. She flirts with people, gets caught making out, has a crush on her hot teacher, feels like she has no one to talk to, and is constantly protecting her best friend. Her character is the perfect blend of every element, which made me feel as if I were her.

Toward the end of the book, Lissa and Rose's fears for leaving were proven right, and Lissa is in mortal danger.

This book is absolutely perfect, Mead's writing style couldn't fit the characters more accurately, and I can assure every girl 13+ that they will NOT be able to put this book down until they finish it!

I give it a 5+/5 for being AMAZING!
