Review: Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

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 I reread this one in prep to go see the movie that's out now. I know that movies are never the same as the books but I wanted a refresher. I still loved it as much this time around as the first time I read it. I forgot how much fun Rose was. She can be so darn bitchy but she's so funny and sarcastic. I love how protective she is of Lissa even at cost to herself. And Dimitri... swoon. I'm going to have to read the rest of the series right now. It hooked me back in. So I'm excited to go see the movie now even though I'm still hearing mixed reviews on it.
