Vampire Academy Review
Only a true best friend can protect you from you immortal enemies...
Lisa Dragomir is a Moroi princess: a mortal vampire with a rare gift for harnessing the earth's magic. She must be protected at all times from Strigoi; the fiercest vampires-the ones who never die. The powerful blend of human and vampire blood that flows through Rose Hathaway, Lissa's best friend, makes her a dhampir. Rose is dedicated to a dangerous life protecting Lissa from the Strigoi, who are hell-bent on making Lissa one of them.
After two years of freedom, Rose and Lissa are caught and dragged back to St. Vladimir's Academy, a school for vampire royalty and their guardians-to-be, hidden in the deep forests of Montana. But inside the iron gates, life is even more fraught with danger...and the Strigoi are always close by.
Rose and Lissa must navigate their dangerous world, confront the temptations of forbidden love, and never once let their guard down, lest the evil undead make Lissa one of them forever...
This book was pretty good considering all of the hype I heard from youtubers and other bloggers, out there. Which was weird since I don't really let other people's opinions on books pressure me into reading them. I will normally use books that people I trust like as books I will read when I can't figure out what to read and that is only when I find the stories interesting.
Lissa was a really kind-hearted character. Her kindness didn't even seem fake, I know people who are that kind, heck, my best friend is that kind. When her powers started to make her go darker is wasn't something that was unusual, because that is usually how bad guys are created. Something makes them go dark.
Rose was such a bad ass. She didn't let anyone stop her from helping Lissa and she protected her even thought everyone thought she couldn't handle it. She was also pretty much a sister for Lissa, she was loyal and kind towards her. But if you mess with Lissa, Rose will mess you up.
4.5 out of 5 stars
