Please excuse the blurriness because I took the pics with a phone so they're not the best quality. I just wanted to share the Dimka/Adrian love with my co-fans of the lovely, lovely Richelle Mead.

The graphic novel version of VA should only be read by people who have read the full-length print books first, or else you might get confused somewhat about the story because it's very condensed and a few details are skipped around on. But hot damn, these are fun reads if you've already devoured the boo...more

Ohmygoodness! Tears of joy. Tears of joy.
Friggin April? For real?
Haha, I'm just sooo glad that they're making not only just the first book into a graphic novel, but the WHOLE SERIES :D
I have no idea how I'm gonna wait when they start making the graphic novel for the THRID book. Which is kinda sorta probably like my favorite book in the series. All the action and what-not ;D
But the worst part is the end. Which I will prolly cry yet again when it comes.
Sadly they cut a lot out, but that was to be expected. Beautifully rendered, although at times i was left criticising the artists work. WHO HAS THEIR EYES HALF WAY UP THEIR FOREHEADS?! It was like they just didn't bother.

How did I miss this? The cover looks bad-ass! Go Rose and Christian!

Finally I got it! It took me so so so soooo long (over 8 months) but I finally received it. It's not surprising that I am so excited about this graphic novel because finally we could see ADRIAN IVASHKOV in it! Adrian Bubble

I love graphic novels and this one was no exception. There are some graphic novels that are just crap but I really love the Vampire Academy ones. The art is amazing and also rereading the story in great. The one thing I love about graphic novels is how you can read it in less...more
The graphic novel of Frosbite completed with colorful illustrations and a satisfying storyline proves to be an enjoyable, quick read (Hence, I devoured Frosbite in one sitting in 1 hour). I'd definitely recommend this graphic novel of Frosbite to readers who has already read Frosbite throroughly before trying to read this novel first. This graphic novel delineates many of the main significant scenes of Frosbite, but lacks some of the other events which might caused readers to stumble a bit.

Recommends it for: fans of VA

Adrian was in this one. I love him. He totally redeems this series for me. And can I just say, he's drawn quite handsomely.

Adrian aside, these graphic novels aren't horrible. It's nice to have a visual to go along with the books. I will say that I don't find Lissa beautiful like how she's described in the books. These are pure fun. That's pretty much it.

They are making me enjoy the series a little more. Not quite sure why lol.

When you love a series as much as I did with the Vampire Academy, I will look for anything to revisit the characters again. Also, since I am starting to read more graphic novels lately, this book was able to fill both needs at one time.

While the book does not go as in depth as the books do, they are a good refresher book to help you remember things that happened in the actual novels. While we refresh our memories through this book, we also get some amazing artwork that helps bring the characters...more

OH.MY.GOD!!! I loved this graphic novel! Even though FROSTBITE is not my favorite book of the VA series, I definitely thought that Mead, Dragoon and Viceli really upped their game in the second book of this graphic novel series. I’ll break it down into parts so it’s a little clearer…

The cover features Rose and Christian front and center, surrounded by those red-eyed Strigoi! Rose is definitely looking badass and Christian – *sigh* I love Christian – is looking...more
The graphic novel adaptation of Richelle Mead’s popular vampire series tells the story of 17-year old Rose Hathaway, a half-human mortal in training to become one of the select bodyguards who protect vampire royalty. Vampire races are divided into three sects, the evil, bloodthirsty Strigoi; the Moroi, magical vampires who only use violence in defense; and Dhampirs – like Rose – half-moroi who train at Vladimir’s Academy to serve as defenders. Rose hopes to graduate in order to protect her best...more

As I said in my first review, there isn't much I can say on this book as it is the second book of the original series just in picture form, so for me the story is all there and set out wonderfully.

The only flaw in this otherwise beautiful representation of a great book is that it skipped over scenes quite quickly. I understand it is a graphic novel and it can't be 400 pages long like your average book but I think some parts needed to be extended just that little bit. That is where the denominati...more

The storyline moved a little fast but then maybe that's the way it happens in graphic novel. It was my first graphic novel, and I just read the final fight 'cause that's where I had left the novel.

But on any case, they had perfectly depicted Rose, Dimitri, Lisa or almost any other character. Though the strigois looked kinda funny and too unrealistic, they did an amazing work with Adrian freaking Ivashkov!
I was already in love with that guy after the series, and watching him the beautiful aura,...more

I AM SO EXCITED! I ordered it off of Amazon a few days ago and it should be here within the week! I am totally obsessed with this series, and I know, I know for a fact, that this graphic novel will be just as awesome as the first one! :D I can hardly wait for the movie in 2013, but still, even then, I am going to be criticizing it so much because of how many times I've read the book, and the book series in general. However, as soon it's out, I'm going to go ape and buy tickets. I am so excited!...more
Rose may have saved Lissa’s life in Vampire Academy but there are more threats on the Moroi Princess’ life. With the entire vampire world on guard, the school sends students to a luxury ski resort to try to keep them safe. Whilst St. Vladamir’s might be trying to protect their students it seems that trouble always seems to find Rose and her friends. With fantastic new characters and all the old favourites, Frostbite picks up right where Vampire Academy ended and continues with a lot of action an...more

Mason getting killed was more horrific in the book than actually seeing it drawn out.
This one, just like the actual series, gets alot better. I still do not like the artwork of these much, but there was an actual explanation of the world in this one and the story itself is much more interesting.
Again, fans of the series should definitely check these out! They give a minds eye to what you are reading.
Deadly and emotional, graphic novel 'Frostbite' is the sequel to Richelle Mead's thrilling and lovable book.
The story follows a strong and independent heroine protagonist, Rose Hathaway, as she continues her school life. She hopes to one day become a promised Dhampir guardian who's sworn to protect an ancient race of vampire called Moroi. The creatures of the night, evil blood drinkers called strigoi, are the antagonists of this book. Things take a turn for the worst when Rose and a group of her...more
Soobie's heartbroken
Well, I'd say 3,5 stars.

Something odd that I noticed even while reading Vampire Academy: The Graphic Novel: all the female characters have too much make-up on. ^__^ Just look at Lissa when she's lying down with Christian: her cheeks are so unrealistically pink. And usually also Rose's cheeks tend to be way redder than normal.

I have mixed feelings about the prologue in this book. On one hand it can't be useful to refresh one's memory before reading. On the other hand there were so may details tha...more
The Cover: I really liked the cover for this one and how it shows that they are having to fight for their lives in a way.

Things that I liked: I really enjoyed that this graphic novel kind of picked up where the first one left off. I hope it's like that with the books. I really enjoyed that things are starting to heat up with Rose and Dimitri even though it seems to be forbidden. I like that Lissa and Christian are getting together as well. It seems that they get to live their lives even with thi...more

Emotional ending captured perfectly.
Najlepšie na týchto grafických novelách je to, že ich môžete čítať s niekým súčasne... a keď je ten niekto rovnako zbláznený a "na prášky" do Vampire Academy ako ja, tak ten zážitok stojí za to!!! No a tá ilustrácia...NO COMMENT!!! :DDDDDD

Shelves: font-too-small
It seemed fine but the font was too small, even with my new glasses I just couldn't read it. I've tried a lot of graphic novel adaptations but this was the first I has to pass on because I just couldn't handle the font.
It was great! Just as amazing as the book, but it is a little rushed since there are only 144 pages in this graphic novel compared to the 300+ for the actual book.
I've enjoyed these graphic novels more than the books they come from! The streamlined plot, coupled with lovely art, make them fun read.

Dimitri je Boh, Adrian je hot! A Christian veeeeľmi milo prekvapil ... MŇAAAAAAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's like reread Vampire Academy again. So well adapted!

It's such a pleasure to see Emma Vieceli's work!
Her Rose, Lisa and Tasha Ozera's pictures have so much beauty in them! It might sound as an exageration but it's not. This is ART to me! They produce in me similar feelings to when I look at Botticelli's Venus.

In Frostbite I've discovered Adrian and Rose's mom (so alike) and enjoyed Mia's shift and LOVED Christian.

I have Shadow Kiss in my hands but... how will I handle the wait for Blood Pr...more
