Review (5): Vampire Academy by RIchelle Mead

Title: Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy #1)
Author: Richelle Mead
Rating: 4.5/5
Overview: 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

Well, I've put off this series for a heck of a long time because I was scared that it was going to be one of those lame vampire series.  But let me tell you, I was way wrong.  This first book of this series had my heart pumping and my eyes tearing up.

I loved that Rose was the narrator.  Rose is a such a strong willed character and she keeps the book going with her recklessness at some points.  She was so easy to connect to in a lot of ways and I love the depths her and Lissa will go through to protect each other.  Lissa and Rose are the epitome of best friends.

Lissa is such a sweet character and you can't help but love her.  She is so vulnerable but at the same time oh so powerful.  It's true when they say opposites attract because that is exactly what Rose and Lissa are, opposites.

This book was so action packed and I loved all the different events that happen throughout the book.  But, lets just say the near the end of the book, I did get a little teary eyed :/

And Dimitri, oh gosh, Dimitri.  My heart was pounding everytime he came into the scene.  Gosh, he is so swoonworthy.

This book sucked me in and definitely wouldn't let go.  I would recommend this book to anyone! It was so great and I cannot WAIT to start the nest one!
