Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

Title: Vampire Academy

Author: Richelle Mead

Pages: 332

Age Group: 14+

From: Borrowed from Friend (Mikaela - Thanks!!)

Genre: Fantasy (Vampires), Romance, Adventure
Blurb: 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.

My Opinion: I thought that the start of this book was pretty slow, though a few of my friends LOVE it and told me to just reading... so I did.
And, I too fell in love... with Dimitri. (No, really I have friends who fight over him. I have a 20% share)
I've now read all the books and I really do like them! The Vampire Academy isn't the best in the series.... JUST KEEP READING!
What I love in these books is the characters! You don't have your normal 'average girl, with brown hair, brown eyes, you know what I mean..' You have Rose, I beautiful girl who is a strong, loyal girl who can defend herself and who (over the whole series) changes but still is the same.... I don't know how to explain it... these books are just amazing....

(Sorry, finding new pictures!!)
