About this ebook

**Read the book and watch the original TV series, now streaming on Peacock!**

Join the legion of fans who skyrocketed this six-book series to the top of the charts. Start here, with the first book that kicked off the international #1 bestselling Vampire Academy series.

Love and loyalty run deeper than blood. 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.

Mead's characters are all well-constructed and even likable until the evil ones. With a huge mystery, you can't see anything coming and everything on the story happens for a big reason. Teenagers and adults will love to read this novel about love, friendship, supernatural and suspense. There's no way someone will stop reading this one and will want to finish the whole saga.

Richelle Mead is by far my favorite author. Having read everything the women has ever written , I must say the VA series is my favorite. She created a world which I found myself lost in more times than I can count. I feel as though by not reading these books you're depriving yourself of literary genius. Love love love these books!
