The hard choice: Dmitri, Mason, or Adrian?
Frostbite - Richelle Mead

Not too very long ago, I read and reviewed Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. As mentioned in that post, Vampire Academy is the first novel in a young adult series about the Moroi (vampires) and dhampirs (guardians of Moroi) who attend St. Vladimir's Academy. Specifically, it's about Lissa and Rose who are shadow kissed and trying to figure out just what that means as there's nothing officially documented about the use of spirit. (I realize this will make no sense unless you read the first book in the series so you'd better go and do that first.) In the second book, Frostbite, Lissa and Rose are continuing their studies so that they can learn how to survive while the Strigoi begin to organize their attacks on Moroi royals. However, the biggest problem that Rose is facing is not against the Strigoi but against her own traitorous heart. (I hope that came across as dramatic as I imagined.) There is not one, not two, but three men in her life and she is very conflicted about her feelings. Ah, that teenage angst! If you were fans of the first novel in the series then undoubtedly you will enjoy this continuation because more of the mythology is unraveled and the characters continue to be fleshed out. It's still bordering on a bit too racy for me but it's the vampire lore which I'm here for primarily (although I am definitely team Dmitri). I'm most likely going to continue reading this series but I'd love to hear your opinion on the books, the reviews, and what you'd like to see me read next. Basically, I just want you guys to talk to me. :-P

A school for blood drinkers
Vampire Academy - Richelle Mead

I saw a trailer for a movie called Vampire Academy ages and ages ago and even though it looked super corny I knew I would have to watch it. It was exactly what I wanted it to be...and then I discovered it was based off of a book series by Richelle Mead. Firstly, the makers of that film were very faithful to the first book in the series (a rarity, I think you'll agree). Secondly, if you're a fan of books which take place in boarding schools then you're likely to find this series right up your alley. Thirdly, Mead has created a new kind of vampire lore which I always find enjoyable especially as a long-time fan of vampire stories/media. Essentially, she's developed a whole subculture where 'vampire' is not even the preferred label. Fourthly, if you enjoyed Twilight because of the romantic aspect then you need look no further because judging from the first book in the series Vampire Academy is the racy cousin of Twilight that your mom warns you about. If you want a more academic vampire story along the lines of Anne Rice or Bram Stoker this probably isn't going to fill the void for you. However, if you're looking for a book that ticks off the "magical beings who act like bratty teens at a super secret boarding school" box then you need look no further because Vampire Academy definitely fits the bill. I haven't yet decided if I'll continue the series but if I do I'll be sure to let you know if it manages to stay at the bar that was raised by this first book. 8/10

Vampire Academy
Vampire Academy - Richelle Mead Vampire academy was a great start to what assume will be an even better series. The YA book can be enjoyed by all ages. If you like magic and vampires it's a must read. I love that it puts a different spin on vampires.

Highly Recommended Read
Frostbite - Richelle Mead

I enjoyed the first book in the series. LOVE Frostbite! I laughed and I cried. The crying Part was a shock to my system. I don't normally tear up for young adult paranormal reads. For the emotional roller-coaster ride Richelle Mead has put me through, I would give Frostbite 6 Stars.

Only a true best friend can protect you from your immortal enemies . . .

 

Lissa 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 of 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

My Review:

 

I haven’t really read the description of the boonk , i heard so much about it that i just picked it up and read it without knowing where it’s leading.

 

I’ve been in some kind of a reading slump , not really , but i couldn’t enjoy any book recently . but boooy i LOVED this one!

 

(p.s : what’s up with the ugly covers?)

 

I didn’t get into it very quickly , i was half way through the book to know i liked it , and that’s when things picked up .

 

I liked the writing style , and the pacing of the story .

The characters were likable as well ,

 

Rose is badass , i loved her and immensely  enjoyed her snarky comments and her short tempered attitude .

Lissa  was okay , although her powers are admirable , i didn’t connect with her. she’s the nice girl next door.

 

Christian , he’s that hot guy who doesn’t know he is hot , he just blends with the shadows , which makes him 10 times hotter ( right????)

 

I loved Christian and Lissa together , i was rooting for them!

Dimitri , i just have a thing for Russian men okay! ah i loved his character , ( that Lust spell scene thought ! ) i’m sure we all enjoyed him. he’s so … aghgdk!

Natalie , don’t wanna spoil anything , but , Damn girl you blew my mind.

 

Mia , i just wanted to hit her so hard throughout the book

The plot was a bit surprising , and fun . i do believe it could have been better but i enjoyed it anyway , the fighting scenes were also okay ( also could have been better) .
I loved the ending , all the thrill was there .

 

and i can’t stop thinking about how Dimitri and Rose should be together !

I want to study in this school !!!

 

and i think i would’ve made one hell of a Dhampir girl . ( not a big fan of Moroi and the royals)
vampire-academy

 

I would recommend this book for YA fans , who are looking for a fun easy read , i’m glad i gave it a try!

 

4-stars

 

 

I’m just not sure if i loved it enough to continue this series , what do you think, should i continue the other books? or does it go down hill from this one?
