Summary: 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. (Goodreads)
My thoughts: I read through the book pretty quickly than my normal pace. I took close to 2 days to complete it. I really really love the way Rose is not those typical YA teenage girls we read about. It’s a good thing that the author doesn’t beat about bush unlike some authors but instead go straight to the point and deliver it to us. That explains why I’m able to read through it soo quickly because unnecessary content is almost nonexistent. I’ve heard that the rest of the books are getting better and better and I hope i can get hold of ’em now. See you guys in my next review.
