Review: “Vampire Academy” by Richelle Mead

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

Simply and Richly Written

This is one of those books that catches you from the first few chapters. I knew instantly that I was going to love Rose. What a kick butt heroine. She’s real and has real flaws, and not exactly a fainting lily. R. Mead has that style that pulls you in, simple and straight forward, that has the ability to suck you in and spin a tale in your head. She tells you just enough of the story to keep you interested and keep you going to look for the answer. The world she built was very good and didn’t leave you feeling as though you read a boring tome. There is love, lose, insanity and lots of action. This is a perfect blend for a book and I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Flow of book – 5
Believable romance – 5
