Series Vampire Academy #1

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.

I picked this book up because 2011 Blogger Recommendation

What I liked the Most? Rose – conceited and arrogant though she may be – makes the story

What I liked the Least? Random thoughts that intruded on the story line & rather wooden dialog

Review: Oh hell this book has it all – strong female characters, a great storyline, intriguing plot with loads of twists, mental instability, torture, betrayal, death, and (of course) true love. There are two types of vampire; the Moroi who are 'good' vampires and who are alive. They have the ability to use magic, wielding the four elements of air, water, earth and fire. The other type is a Strigoi, these are evil and although both types need blood, Strigoi kill while taking it.There are also Dhampirs who are half Moroi and half human.
