Vampire Academy – Richelle Mead ★★★★★

Blurb; Only a true best friend can protect you from your immortal enemies…

Lissa Dragomir is a Moroi princess: a mortal vampire with a rare gift for harnessing the earth’s magic. She must be protected at all times from Strigoi; the fiercest vampires—the ones who never die. The powerful blend of human and vampire blood that flows through Rose Hathaway, Lissa’s best friend, makes her a dhampir. Rose is dedicated to a dangerous life of protecting Lissa from the Strigoi, who are hell-bent on making Lissa one of them.

After two years of freedom, Rose and Lissa are caught and dragged back to St. Vladimir’s Academy, a school for vampire royalty and their guardians-to-be, hidden in the deep forests of Montana. But inside the iron gates, life is even more fraught with danger… and the Strigoi are always close by.

Rose and Lissa must navigate their dangerous world, confront the temptations of forbidden love, and never once let their guard down, lest the evil undead make Lissa one of them forever…

My Review; My friend lent me her set of these and she’s been ranting and raving about them forever so ofcourse I had to read them to have my own opinion. Well book one in the series is AMAZING. I really enjoyed it all a brilliant start to this series. I cant believe its taken me this long to read them to be honest. Miles better than Twilight. A great introduction to all the characters, the academy and magic. I’m going straight into book two and can’t wait to see what lies ahead for them all. I think I’ve fallen in love with Dimitri though. My kind of man. I loved most of the characters except Mia. Loved the bond and friendship between Rose and Lissa. Highly recommend so far. A well deserved five stars and now I can watch the film to compare. Yay. I hope book two is just as good.
