I just finished this one and really enjoyed it am going to get the next this week. I love reading a book in a series. I enjoy really seeing the Characters come to life and into there own as each book progresses
I loved this series. I couldn't put them down i was reading one a week.

I love it! I love it! I love it!
Okay, I admit, at the first book, I was like "Gawd, Rose is so unlikable and Lissa well so plain, shy pathetic and it was so boring. Maybe I'll just restudy the calculus, or maybe go watch some movies or just zzz" but now after reading until book 5. "Really! forget the calculus, forget the movies, forget the sleeping let's finish this on!" and I love and understand Rose too, and for Lissa well, I don't like her, and I don't hate her either. But still I really Lov

When I first read it, the first book I mean, I can say I really didn't quiet get it at first 'coz there's a lot happening and it's not explained well.

But when I read everything. I was! I swear, it's not the normal Vampire Story like that of Twilight. It's more than that! It's best than that! This series is by far the most beautiful Vampire Story I've read. It's UNIQUE. That bond Rose and Lissa have is just amazing. I've never heard of it, never read a story like that either. I love

Now thats out of the way lets get down to the review.
This series is more then a romance (the romance is merely a subplot) its more then vampires. Its deep and philosophical at times and will make you laugh and cry in the same breath. The world is incredibly well written and has its own politcal and social issues that get you hooked and angry as if its your own world. .
I've never read a book with greater character developement and nor ha

these girls can really kick some butt!! a vampire princess and her protector fight to protect themselves and the school that it's complicated.... add in some magical powers, evil strigoi vampires and you are in for one heck of a wild ride.

last sacrifice: !!! whaaa
I really enjoyed this series. The first book was a bit cheesy but as the characters mature so does the story-line. It gets really good by the second & third books!
I absolutely loved this series. I read them a while back but I remember when Dimitri was turned, I actually threw the book because it was so late at night and I couldn't go get the next book. Everything ended perfectly and every book left me begging for more. Dimitri is the ultimate bad ass Russian god and the perfect gentleman wrapped up into one. I absolutely love Adrian but it isn't right for him to end up with Rose because Rose would never have been able to love him. Dimitri had already take ...more
2.5 stars I give this. I am usually a big fan of vampire novels but this book gave me a mixture of feelings of good and bad. Reason for it being in the middle.

Overall it was OK. Was wondering what the fuss was about over this book so I brought the whole collection. Sometimes it would suck me in and sometimes it bored me to death.

Disliked the ending. Could have been more. I liked Adrian, Dimitri was boring before he turned vampire. I prefered him being the bad guy. Adrian was one of the reasons

You need to read this series. NOW.
I really loved this series. The first book was pretty good, with a mystery the main theme. The series really kicks in at the end of book 2, that is when I went from enjoying the series to loving it. Each book just got better and better. Richelle Mead is one of my favourite authors and the world that she has created in this series is really interesting.
This is considered a YA series - I would say more geared towards high school age. Although the name implies vampires, there isn't a lot of that going on. This series was like candy for me - I totally ate each book up - super easy fast reads.
Unfortunately the newest series by Rachelle Mead is not nearly as good.
I loved this series, bought one book and read it before realising there were more. Read them all one after another and was bitterly disappointed when the series finished. At least I know she's working on another series tying in with characters from these books - something to look forward to!!
Shadow kiss was one of the best!! I cried at the end, and had to wait a year until blood promise came out. Blood promise was so so. Spirit bound was awesome and last sacrifice the best, I was so shocked to find out that Tasha killed queen Tatiana.
LOVED this series! If you are looking for something a little bit different from your typical vampire school story, this is it! Richelle Mead has a great sense of humor and her characters jump to life from the pages.

Richelle Mead's main character is Rose Hathaway. Rose is strong, sensitive, flawed, and completely likeable. The story line is intriguing. The love story is emotionally evocative.
Amazing series.
Really refreshing Vampire series after the whole Twilight craziness.
Would highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys fantasy / vampire books!
Christina Ortiz
One of my favorite series. I love Rose, she is such a great character. Plus the chemistry between her and Demetri is hot.
Wonderful series, I am completely attached. Well worth the read if you are looking for a break from Twilight-copy cats.
