Vampire Academy, by Richelle Mead

A review by LocoCoco of the Vampire Academy Series, by Richelle Mead

Rose Hathaway is the type of girl you would see beating people up for her friends or loved ones.  Or if people just tick her off.

Rose attends a special school, St. Vladimir's Academy for Future Guardians, Dampires, and Moroi, which is a type of vampire that can control the four elements of the earth: air, water, earth, and fire.  But Lissa Dragomir, Rose's best friend, controls a rare power--spirit.

As Rose and Lissa go on with their school life, they find more and more problems and more answers.

I read almost all of the Vampire Academy books, and I've loved it every step of the way.  The plot is very absorbing and I have to read what's next.  Sure, sometimes it gets a slow start but towards the end, you can't put it down.  Trust me, I tried, and failed.  Richelle Mead does a very good job with the whole fighting, which is good because most of the book has to do with killing Strigoi.  The book also has a good, close-to-home feeling to it.  What I mean by that is that some of the vampires have lived at the school since they were young, and they feel like a family, and the school like their home.

I rate this series 5 out of 5 chocolate bars.
Rated DEATH for sexual content and harsh language.


  1. I was disappointed that this was not quite middle school appropriate, because a lot of my students get them from the public library.

  2. Those sound like good books.... Maybe I'll read them!
