What can I say? I LOVE this series, end of story! I picked up VA on a whim at the library on day. I admit I choose a book based on the cover a lot, and since I do not really like these covers I almost bypassed it but glad I didn't:) I love Rose, she is a protagonist who is spunky , loyal and flawed, so to me she is relatable and real. Richelle MEad introduces us to a different and very interesting kind of vampire(s) and the lore makes for a unique story. We have moroi who are mortal vamps with elemental magic, Dhampirs who are half vamp/human hybrids and strigoi who are the evil, red eyed immortal vamps. Rose is a guardian in training for her best friend who would do anything to keep her safe. In the book there are dealings of forbidden love, politics, rumors, and evil villians. I highly recommend this read as it is one of the best series in it's genre.
