Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

I'm not over vampires yet. There were just so many to choose from in the book store that its hard to sometimes pick out something to read when there are so many of the same genre to choose from. A lot of people recommended I read this series since I loved the House of Night novels by P.C. Cast and I thought I would give it a chance to read. I'm glad this whole series was complete because it gave me the chance to read the whole series through.

Vampire Academy (Book 1)
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.

HOLY COW! This is the book series that should have been made into films around the same time as Twilight. I really liked it. It's tough chicks! I liked the writing it wasn't dull, and to top it off neither were the characters. I found myself very attached to Rose. She is strong and determined. I especially liked how it was not all romance but had A LOT of action sequenced into the book it was all girls who could kick some serious ass!  A wonderful vampire series to read. 5 STARS!
