Review: Vampire Academy

The Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

Published by: Penguin Group/ Razor Bill
Released:  August 16, 2007
Pages: 332 pgs.
Overall Rating: 4.5/5

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.

My Review-
Well first off I can not believe that I have never heard of this series before joining the book blog community.

It seems like the Twilight series gets more praise than this series does and I think it's just as good! So now on to the actual review:

I would give this book a 4.5/5 because well.....I think it would have been cool if each chapter switched perspectives you know like one Rose and the next Lissa. I think that would have been interesting. I do see why she didn't though because of their bond. Otherwise I have like no criticism.....if you have not checked out this book I would definitely recommended it!!! 

Talk to you all later!!
P.S. I am currently reading ttyl by Lauren Myracle!
