Enter the complete saga of the international #1 bestselling Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead—soon to be a major motion picture!
Lissa Dragomir is a Moroi princess: a mortal vampire with an unbreakable bond to the earth’s magic. 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 her one of them. Rose and Lissa must navigate through this dangerous world, confront the temptation of forbidden romance, and never once let their guard down, lest the Strigoi make Lissa one of them forever.

Los libros en sí son una gran opción para los fans del mundo vampírico que no se sientan atraídos personajes excesivamente llorones o predecibles. Esta saga refresca un poco este sector ya tan masificado de la literatura, especialmente para los que necesitamos un descanso entre tanta novela dramática. No se vuelve pesada con el tiempo, aunque uno de los libros centrales (no soltaré spoilers) si es más lento que el resto. Aún así, merece

Welcome to St. Vladimir's Academy, a private high school for vampires and the half-bloods who are bound to protect them. The Moroi are vampires, and the descendants of Moroi royalty are the social elite of St. Vladimir's. The Moroi are at constant risk, though. The Strigoi, the fiercest vampires, are out to get them, any way they can. The Moroi are protected by Dhampirs, guardians who are sworn to lay down their lives to assure that the Moroi bloodlines continue.
Our main characters are Lissa Dragomir, a Moroi princess, last of her family line. Her best friend is Rose Hathaway, a dhamphir guardian who is dedicated to her protection. After two years of freedom and being on the run against the Strigoi, they are returned to the Vampire Academy where Rose must begin a training regime if she means to be a true guardian. And Lissa must learn to understand the elemental magic that all Moroi wield, and chose an elemental form to specialize in.
The cast of characters is large and diverse. Mead manages them with casual flair and we hardly realize how deftly she shifts the board. The dialogue is easy and has a mature voice which I enjoyed.
There are many kinds of vampire stories out there but this one has a great sense of originality. Vampire aficionados will recognize the strigoi from legends but Mead manages to create both "good" and "bad" vampires which I prefer and enjoyed. This is a new twist on old legends and in a literary world glutted with vampire tales, this is why Mead is a best-selling author with VA being made into a movie.
The pacing, like the dialogue is easy. The suspense is not dragged out but comes in bursts. The surprises tho are especially nice because they are with you before you know they are coming. This, too, I really enjoyed.
I'm in for the next book. Don't know if the movie is any good, but I hope so. Where other movies failed to translate successfully from the books (Beautiful Creatures and Mortal Instruments), I hope this one fares better. It deserves to have a fun run and Mead deserves the kudos for a wonderfully original take on vampires.
If you like vampires and you like strong female leads (with a little adolescent snark added in), this is for you.
The film didn’t get that much praise, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved the silliness and mythology of the world, though it was easy to see where it failed. There is so much information in every book in this series, that the movie could not include it all in order to help drive the plot forward. I also did not get the chemistry from the couple on screen that I did in the novels.
Richelle Mead is a master of plot. The novels just kept getting better the further I got into the series. My favourite being ‘Blood Promise.’ What starts as a typical smart-mouthed teen, Rose really develops into a selfless warrior.
I did want a little more from the end of the series though; there were many questions I did not get answers to, but I’m wondering if it will get explored further in the Bloodlines series.
An attractive boxed set that gave me many, many hours of fun entertainment and solidified Rose as one of my favourite heroines. Glad to have it in my library collection.
As far as Richelle Mead's writing, there is one thing I think she needs to invest in - a Thesaurus. She uses the words "snark", "badass" and "hot" way too often in her books. I'm sure there are more repetitive I could pull out, but I'll leave it at that. Instead of saying snark all the time...how about sarcastic? or smart ass?....something other than SNARK. Is that even a word??! Okay, yep, just looked it up - it is a word in the urban dictionary, so it is barely a word...oh, yeah, there is the other word she uses a lot - YUP.....who uses the word "yup" in a sentence? or even will text the word "yup"? Not me, but characters in all of her books it all the time. I don't think I've ever uttered the word "yup" once in my life. Yep, maybe, but never yup.
Okay, I know I gave this a 5 star and I'm pointing out stuff that really bothered me (and not done with that yet) - I believe that the story itself, the characters and the premise deserve a 5. I read a LOT and this author actually had me with one story line plot saying "Okay, didn't see that one coming" That hasn't happened to me in years. You become very invested in the characters and really start to care for them, which is why it really ticked me off how she handled the love live of Rose and Dimitri. 6 books she has to throw their love life this way and that way, but we as readers only get to experience their happiness for MAYBE a chapter. That really ticked me off. Ticked me off to the degree that I logged into her website and send an email via her contact (which is a system she encourages).
I also felt that more detail should have been given to combat training and combat itself. All the details were really skipped over.....There really wasn't any meat to those parts. I've read Mercedes Lackey's Valdemar series and she has done phenomenal detail in regards to how the combat training was done and when combat happens without taking from the story. In fact it ADDS to the story, give it more depth and volume when you can picture it in your mind step by step. Instead of being given a generalization as Richille Mead does when she describes combat.
In closing, don't expect this to be your typical vampire story, it will not be. It is very different. Take a minute to Google Moroi and Strigoi and you will learn about the Romany vampires myths - which are pretty cool. I know I've brought up a lot of negative points. I will have to admit that I've been reading one particular author for quite some time now, so I'm used to her rhythm of writing, so when I read another author in the same category of fantasy, I have a pretty high expectation. Richelle Mead comes close to that expectation.
