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.
So yes after many fellow Young Adult and Vampire fans nagging at me I finally decided to read The Vampire Academy. I got it through paperback swap so I did not have to worry about being out any money for it if I found out I really did not enjoy it. So what did I think? That is theoretically why you are reading the review after all.
I didn’t love it and I didn’t hate it either. I just feel kind of like “well okay I read that.”
Most of the character to me seemed a bit vapid, I did like Dmitri the Guardian of course he is Russian and not a bad guy so I tend to like when Russian’s get a good guy role (wait for a rant about that on my other blog). Overall I think I will go ahead and read the next book at some point in the future but I am not rapid to do it and I am not sure I am sold 100% on this series. Not good not bad just kind of in the middle of the road for me.
