Vampire Academy - Richelle Mead

Dimitri: "She might be wild and disrespectful, but if she has potential-"
Rose: "Wild and disrespectful? Who the hell are you anyway? Outsourced help?"
Kirova: "Guardian Belikov is the Princess Lissa's guardian now, her sanctioned guardian."
Rose: "You got cheap foreign labor to protect Lissa?"

Summary: Rose Hathaway is a Dhamphir (a half-human) and guardian to her best friend Lissa Dragomir - a Moroi princess who happens to be a vampire. After running away, the two girls get caught and are brought back to St. Vladimir's Academy. Rose faces many challenges back at the Academy...there's the Strigoi - the most dangerous vampires around and then there's Dimitri - Rose's teacher who is pretty much known as a God around campus.

I tried reading this book a couple of years ago and couldn't get into it but I gave it another shot and fell in love! The book is funny and witty and is actually a pretty decent thrill ride! I think Rose is a really great strong female character (with lots of attitude to book!). I personally think these books are better then Twilight (but I still love the Twilight series, too!).

Rating: 9/10
