Jarrad moroi and strigoi come from Romanian folklore-they are vampires. Although in VA the author Richelle Mead has stated she altered them a bit. Hope that helps.


message 12: by Ariana (new)

Ariana I am from there and it is not really like that (not quite vampires), but let's say, for the love of this book, that they are those creatures with a spin off ;))

Jarrad Oh haha nice ^^

Lisa Howe http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moroi

Moroi = mortal vampire; Strigoi = immortal vampire :)


message 16: by Ariana (new)

Ariana There are no vampires in our folklore *sigh*
But because the notions have different meanings even in different regions in my country, and because after Dracula and the Bran Castle you can't stay away from vampire souvenirs, let's assume that the wiki-theory is fine. :)


message 17: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Howe I'd never even heard the words "Moroi" and "Strigoi" before this series XD

What country are you from? :)


message 18: by Ariana (new)

Ariana I'm from Romania, and you couldn't have known those words as they are romanian too ;)) I still laugh when trying to pronounce them in English, LOL


message 19: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Howe Ohh, I didn't know they were :D That is so cool!

According to Google Translate, the English translations for Moroi and Strigoi are "poltergeist" and "ghost"... so I understand your confusion now :)


message 20: by Ariana (new)

Ariana It's just like with the shinny vampires, you know - some liked the idea, some were like: "shinny what?! there are no shinny vampires".

I respect people's imagination and the need to adapt old concepts to what's the 'new best thing' (and I assure you that a 'vampire' as it's known today is a lot more appealing than these 'strigoi' and 'moroi' will ever be) it was just something that I noticed and felt the need to point out :)

I also added my thoughts at the end of the review (rather than at the beginning), for people not to get stuck on defining the concepts but start by enjoying the story, LOL!


message 21: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Howe Have you read the rest of the series yet? :)


message 22: by Ariana (new)

Ariana Oh..I missed this comment. Sorry!

No, I didn't but I plan to read the second one at some point, even soon.
The thing is.. there are so many books in this series, I feel tired only for thinking of them. They might be good, but I feel that I need a ton of free time to get through them all.


message 23: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Howe I understand what you mean. The series is very long! It is worth the read though, I believe, once you get into it. :)


message 24: by Michael (new)

Michael Did you see the movie yet? The movie really needs fans to pull through because as of now its a flop. So please support the movie :)


message 25: by Ariana (new)

Ariana To be honest, I saw the trailer and I have no interest in watching the whole movie. But there might be many fans of there that will support it :)
