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
I'm a fan of vampire books. I read Twilight and thought it wasn't great. I've read a few others and ...boring, boring....
But I dare anyone to tell me that this book didn't draw you in. It is funny, witty, the plots are amazing, and the characters are great (except for Lissa who I thought was a bit flaky but that's just her!). If you like vampire books, you must read it. If you hate vampire books, you must read it.
The characters are all fascinating, Rose Hathaway comes across as a bit mouthy but its all talk. It's why we love her and you can't help but admire Dimitri Belikov..
A great, great read.
