The story that kicked off the international #1 bestselling Vampire Academy series.
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 Strigoi—the world’s fiercest and most dangerous vampires—make Lissa one of them forever.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
With drama, romance, and a pair of badass heroines to root for, Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy—the first book in a series—might be one of our favorite YA fantasies. Lissa is a special breed of benevolent magical vampire. Her BFF, Rose, is a half-vampire half-human who’s sworn to protect Lissa as they enter the Vampire Academy. Mead teases out all kinds of thrilling secrets, including a forbidden romance, the plans of the world’s most powerful and destructive vampires, and the origins of her main characters’ unbreakable bond. Rose and Lissa are just the kind of self-possessed heroines we love reading about. Their story reminds us that a strong female friendship is one of the mightiest powers on earth.
This, I believe, is a wonderful book. Throughout the series, you get even more dragged into the world of Rose. This is a much better vampire story than Twilight for sure.
A great series!!!
