Happy Easter everyone!! Now on to the review!
Back of the Book
St. Vladmir's Academy isn't jsut 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 not they're being dragged back to St. Vladmir'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.
Surprisingly I really liked it. Usually books that everyone goes crazy for, I don't seem to find the same allure but this was a pretty decent book. Especially that it's a vampire book and for once had and was nothing like a twilight wanna be. Love the connection between these two girl as they unravel the mystery of their bond and the forbidden loves that tehy aquire (i mean who doesn't love forbidden things). The story takes a interesting turn of event with the two types of vampires and a society that is in need of change.
One last thing - I wish i had Dimitri as a teacher, damn lucky Rose.
Overall i really enjoyed it and it's not what I expected for your typical ya novel where I can predict everything.
