Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
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.
WHAT I THINK: I don't know why I didn't continue reading this book when I read its FIRST page months ago. instead I abandoned it! WHY? this is actually a GREAT read!
I enjoyed the characters, especially Rose, she's so funny and confident. I love the story: just enough action, enough romance, enough friendship, leadership, etc. The way the story progressed was also good, everything happened at the right place and time. Its like it was all planned, every little scene had its purpose. Beautifully crafted. I also got "kilig" so many times with Rose and Dimitri. Too bad they didn't end up together in this first book. Maybe in the next one.
Truly enjoyed reading this! couldn't put it down! (:
