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)


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





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?
