I got into Vampire Academy last year in November/December 2009. My mum had decided to buy Vampire Academy and Frostbite as two books I could read on the plane to Europe, however I wanted two books from the Southern Vampire Mysteries Series which True Blood is based off. I was so close to refusing to read the books but I decided to read Vampire Academy just to see if I would like it or not. I loved it! I could not believe that I wanted to push aside.
I cannot explain how much I love these books and the characters I have fallen in love with. I especially love Dimitri Belikov or 'Dimka' as well as Adrian Ivashkov. I am also especially looking forward to the film which is going to be directed by Don Murphy who has directed the Transformers films.Vampire Academy is a best selling series of six young-adult paranormal romance novels by American author Richelle Mead. It tells the story of Rosemarie "Rose" Hathaway, a seventeen-year-old Dhampir girl, who is training to be a bodyguard for her Moroi best friend, Vasilisa "Lissa" Dragomir. In the process of learning how to defeat Strigoi (the undead and evil vampires) in St. Vladimir's Academy, Rose finds herself caught in a forbidden romance with her handsome instructor, Dimitri Belikov, while having an unbreakable bond with Lissa. The book is narrated from Rose's point of view. Having her mysterious bond, she can also see through Lissa's eyes, which enables her to read her mind and feelings.
If you love drama, romance, friendship, betrayal, humour and adventure, you will love the Vampire Academy series.
