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.


Another young adult read that I heard wonderful reviews about and I knew I had to give it a go. This book started slow but quickly sped up and caught my interest. I was hooked on finding out the romance between the teens and the angst of highschool. As if I didn’t get enough of the teeny-bopper hoopla when I was in school, I still devoured this book in nothing flat. An actual plot, interesting characters, and wonderful writing that you don’t find in many young adult books. At least when you are an adult reading them. I am quickly finding that the young adult genre has greatly improved since I was a young adult and i am finding these books capturing my interest just as easily. I have the rest in the series of these on hold at the library and I will have to hurry and pick them up so I can see what happens! A great book to add to your TBR pile!


Very Good! You have to read this book!
