Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead (The Vampire Academy Series: Book 1)

8/10 A new twist in the world of vampires.

After being on the run for two years Rose and Lissa have been found and are dragged (literally) back into the iron gates of St Vladimir's Academy.

Rose and Lissa soon learn that being on the run was a lot simpler than hiding secrets and safer than living with-in reach of the unknown enemy. With no escape they both have to learn to deal with it which is no simple feat with Rose’s quick temper and sharp tongue.

Then the real test begins, Lissa is in serious trouble and Rose is caught in a spell of lust. Will she break it in time to save her one true friend, Princess Lissa?

Vampire Academy is the first in a series and gives you fantastic foundations for a new twist in the world of vampires. At times I wanted to join Rose in her battles and she had me laughing at her quick-witted nature. Likewise with Lissa’s kind nature she made my heart warm and at times I really felt for her in the battles of social climbs and trials of love. I felt I could relate with both characters at different times and would recommend this book. I have read it many times each time as enjoyable as the last. Would be suitable for older teenagers and young adults (and of course even me at 32!)

I really loved this book... it's amazing and really helps you a lot in escaping reality. I loved Rose's badass attitude and Lissa's kindness... and of course Dimitri's damn hotness... I would suggest this book to young adults. It combines action, friendship, sacrifice and of course romance... this book had some shocking moments and a lot of secrets... well, enjoy reading this book. If you have not read it by now... read it because it's really amazing.
