Lissa Dragomir and Rose Hathaway are best friends that literally depend on each other for survival. Lissa is a Moroi princess, a mortal vampire with a link to Earth's magic. Rose, a Dhampir, must protect her from the Strigoi, the most dangerous vampires who never die. The two have a rare bond that allows Rose to feel the emotions that Lissa has, and even see through her eyes when it gets strong enough. They were free from St. Vladimir's Academy, in the deep forests of Montana, for two years until they were drug back to it. Rose has to continue with her Dhampir education. Lissa becomes really popular again. Both girls break many hearts inside the Academy. Even though they thought they were safer outside of the Academy, danger is inside and out of it. Together they need to stay safe from the Strigoi or else Lissa will be one forever.

I thought that this book was very interesting to read. The characters both had very deep actions and emotions that kept me at the edge of my seat wondering what they would do next. The fact that Rose could feel how Lissa was feeling made me even more excited. Even though Vampire Academy is slow at some parts the action builds up and makes it better and better throughout the whole story. At the end, it leaves a huge surprise that made me want even more. I can't wait to read more from Richelle Mead.
