Vampire Academy, by Richelle Mead

Guest Review by Kayla Nye

Vampire Academy is the first book out of a six-book series. In this book series, there are three types of vampires. The strigoi are immortal but very dark and evil creatures. The Moroi are who the strigoi hunt, which is why there are dhampirs (which are half vampire half human) to protect the Moroi. However within the Moroi, there are special clans, who are considered Royals. Those are the ones the dhampirs really have to protect.

This book focuses on two main characters; Rose Hathaway, who is a dhampir, and her best friend Vasilisa Dragomir, and how their lives get sculpted back into the academy they had run away from.
This book is a terrific read; one you could finish in one sitting. It’s full of action, romance, drama and bits of comedy. Come check it out at the Dorchester Public Library, you won’t regret it!
