Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy #1)
By Richelle Mead

My Rating: 5 Stars

Blurb:
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.

My review:

First and foremost,I would like to say that I looooove and admire the author and the way she created all these characters and places.In this series there are three types of vampires:The Moroi (royal pureblood vampires),the Dhampir(a mix of moroi with humans or dhampirs,who are guardians) and the Strigoi (the evil vampires who are supposed to have no soul).

Our two heroines are:a Moroi vampire Princess named Lissa and a dhampir named Rose.When things get complicating for our heroines after Lissa's parents car accident,the two decide to live St. Vladimir’s Academy.But how much longer can they run?Not much.Soon,the academy takes action and sents a group of guardians to bring them back.Leader of the group is our "hero" Dimitri Belikov(Oh god I looooove him).
While their time back in the academy the two girls try to adapt ,although they know that such a thing is not happening any time soon.Someone is trying to drive Lissa crazy or so she thinks,and someone is falling for his tutor. Hint:It's Rose.After loosing valuable time away from her training Rose is forced to take an extra fighting class with who else but the best Dimitri Belikov.

A romance will be created while loyalty will be judged.

But what they haven't yet realized is that more things are at stake than they thought.

Blurb:
Rose loves Dimitri, Dimitri might love Tasha, and Mason would die to be with Rose...

It’s winter break at St. Vladimir’s, but Rose is feeling anything but festive. A massive Strigoi attack has put the school on high alert, and now the Academy’s crawling with Guardians—including Rose’s hard-hitting mother, Janine Hathaway. And if hand-to-hand combat with her mom wasn’t bad enough, Rose’s tutor Dimitri has his eye on someone else, her friend Mason’s got a huge crush on her, and Rose keeps getting stuck in Lissa’s head while she’s making out with her boyfriend, Christian! The Strigoi are closing in, and the Academy’s not taking any risks... This year, St. Vlad’s annual holiday ski trip is mandatory.

But the glittering winter landscape and the posh Idaho resort only create the illusion of safety. When three friends run away in an offensive move against the deadly Strigoi, Rose must join forces with Christian to rescue them. But heroism rarely comes without a price...

My Review:
Winter break has come and it freezes all,included emothions.While Lizza is better than ever Rose doesn't feel like it.She has many problems and not just emotional ones.Christian's aunt Tasha(the b***,I like her,I really do but  how dare she to take Dimitri away from us) comes into the play and decides that she needs a guardian and who can be better than an old friend?

As all these things weren't enough,everyone has to deal with the danger of strigoi.With the danger lurking the academy takes its break in a luxurious resort.The strigoi attacks become a major problem for all and so Mason,one of Rose's friend and maybe something more,decides to play the hero.Things will get more complicating while lives will be put at risk.

A new character will come to bond with the heroines while friendship and duty will take a different meaning.A tragedy will bring them together but the spirit will reap them apart...



Shadow Kiss (Vampire Academy #3)
By Richelle Mead

My Rating: 5 Stars

Blurb:
Is Rose’s fate to kill the person she loves most? It’s springtime at St. Vladimir’s Academy, and Rose Hathaway is this close to graduation. Since Mason’s death, Rose hasn’t been feeling quite right. She has dark flashbacks in the middle of practice, can’t concentrate in class, and has terrifying dreams about Lissa. But Rose has an even bigger secret . . . .She’s in love with Dimitri. And this time, it’s way more than a crush. Then Strigoi target the academy in the deadliest attack in Moroi history, and Dimitri is taken. Rose must protect Lissa at all costs, but keeping her best friend safe could mean losing Dimitri forever…

My Review:
It's hight time,Rose learnt that life is full of surprises and the most occur when you don't expect them.Life has become harder in St. Vladimir's Academy and the end has almost approached.
Rose sees things that don't make sense and this ruins her whole performance at the academy.Adrian (I love him but I'm a Dimitri fan) comes into the scene when he is most needed and figures out the real source of Rose's problems.Spirit is now affecting Rose than Lissa,but as a loyal friend that she is,she refuses to take Lissa's gift but telling her the truth.

A "trip"to the royal court makes things better and cools thing up for the whole group .But when they get back to the academy emotions will intesify and inevitable actions will made.An attack at the academy will forever change all..

 Is love strong enough  to defeat  death?Is friendship more importantthan what your heart desires???

My Rating:5 Stars 

Blurb:

Rose Hathaway's life will never be the same.

The recent attack on St. Vladimir's Academy devastated the entire Moroi world. Many are dead. And, for the few victims carried off by Strigoi, their fates are even worse. A rare tattoo now adorns Rose's neck, a mark that says she's killed far too many Strigoi to count. But only one victim matters . . . Dimitri Belikov. Rose must now choose one of two very different paths: honoring her life's vow to protect Lissa—her best friend and the last surviving Dragomir princess—or, dropping out of the Academy to strike out on her own and hunt down the man she loves. She'll have to go to the ends of the earth to find Dimitri and keep the promise he begged her to make. But the question is, when the time comes, will he want to be saved?

Now, with everything at stake—and worlds away from St. Vladimir's and her unguarded, vulnerable, and newly rebellious best friend—can Rose find the strength to destroy Dimitri? Or, will she sacrifice herself for a chance at eternal love?

My Review:
Love hurts.
Nobody else knows this better than Rose.She saw Dimitri "die",she left her Lissa for him and now she must keep her promise to Dimitri.The promise she made to him  long ago.Rose travels to Russia to find Dimitri and instead she finds an Alchemist,Sydney.Sydney helps her to get to her destination and find what she's looking for.But an accident brings her to meet a powerful Moroi,Abe.He(for unexpected reasons) wants Rose to leave Russia and return back to the US.She on the other hand,goes to Novosibirsk and hunts with friends she met in Baia (Dimitri's homeland).

The good news is that she actually finds him,the bad....he kidnaps her and forces her to remaine with him.But Dimitri has other plans.He wants to turn her and she doesn't.On her attemp to escape she and Dimitri fight and she stabs him.

She returns to the US with the hope to continue her life peacefully with her friends but her hopes are dimmed   when she receives a letter.

Love was never as painful as it is now...


Spirit Bound (Vampire Academy #5)
By Richelle Mead

My Rating:5 Stars

Blurb:
After a long and heartbreaking journey to Dimitri’s birthplace in Siberia, Rose Hathaway has finally returned to St. Vladimir’s—and to her best friend, Lissa Dragomir. It's graduation, and the girls can’t wait for their real lives outside of the Academy’s cold iron gates to finally begin. But even with the intrigue and excitement of court life looming, Rose’s heart still aches for Dimitri. He's out there, somewhere.

She failed to kill him when she had the chance, and now her worst fears are about to come true. Dimitri has tasted her blood, and she knows in her heart that he is hunting her. And if Rose won't join him, he won't rest until he's silenced her...forever.

But Rose can't forget what she learned on her journey—whispers of a magic too impossible and terrifying to comprehend. A magic inextricably tied to Lissa that could hold the answer to all of Rose's prayers, but not without devastating consequences. Now Rose will have to decide what—and who—matters most to her. In the end, is true love really worth the price?

My Review:
Back at the Academy it's time for gratuation and letter after letter is arriving (or should I say warnings).Lissa and Rose go to the Royal court to find information about the prison where Victor is held.Victor is the main link to find Robert,his half-brother,who knows how to restore a strigoi to his orifinal form.The adventure begins in Alaska(really great scenes,love the book) and ends in Las-Vegas.There they find Robert who says that a strigoi is restored only when a spirit user stakes him/her.

But who is really going to do it???Lissa or Adrian???

I'm not going to say,but what I'm going to say is that Dimitri will be restored and imprisoned for his "sins".Though everyone will get calmer as time pass.

A murder wil bring everything upside down and once again loyalty will be judged.


Last Sacrifice (Vampire Academy #6)
By Richelle Mead

My Rating: 5 Stars

Blurb:
The astonishing final novel in Richelle Mead's epic series! Murder. Love. Jealousy. And the ultimate sacrifice. Now, with Rose on trial for her life and Lissa first in line for the Royal Throne, nothing will ever be the same between them.

My Review:
The last and astonishing book in Vampire Academy series is finaly here...
A journey will begin to uncover a hurtfull truth.Lost feeling will be found and actions will be regreted.
Rose and Dimitri leave the royal court and originally plan to hide but an upsetting event forces them to uncover a secret known by few.Love,pain,regret and even jealousy will dominate the story to its full lengh.

Bloodlines (Bloodlines #1)
By Richelle Mead

My Rating: 4 Stars

Blurb:
The first book in Richelle Mead's brand-new teen fiction series - set in the same world as Vampire Academy.

When alchemist Sydney is ordered into hiding to protect the life of Moroi princess Jill Dragomir, the last place she expects to be sent is a human private school in Palm Springs, California. But at their new school, the drama is only just beginning.

Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, Bloodlines explores all the friendship, romance, battles and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive - this time in a part-vampire, part-human setting where the stakes are even higher and everyone's out for blood.

My Review(actually my favourite line from the book):
Adrian’s new research partner stepped through the door, and I knew the uneasy peace we’d just established in Palm Springs was about to shatter.
Dimitri Belikov had arrived.
OMG...I don't think it can get any better.!!


The Golden Lily (Bloodlines #2)
By Richelle Mead

Expected publication: June 12th 2012

Blurb:
The second thrilling installment in Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy spinoff series

Tough, brainy alchemist Sydney Sage and doe-eyed Moroi princess Jill Dragomir are in hiding at a human boarding school in the sunny, glamorous world of Palm Springs, California. The students--children of the wealthy and powerful--carry on with their lives in blissful ignorance, while Sydney, Jill, Eddie, and Adrian must do everything in their power to keep their secret safe. But with forbidden romances, unexpected spirit bonds, and the threat of Strigoi moving ever closer, hiding the truth is harder than anyone thought.

Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, Richelle Mead's breathtaking Bloodlines series explores all the friendship, romance, battles, and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive. In this second book, the drama is hotter, the romances are steamier, and the stakes are even higher.

So,I hope you guys like it cause I spent much time writing this.My next Series review will propably come in 5/19/2012 and it will propably be about  the Lords of the Underworld by Gena Showalter..
