This is without a doubt one of my favorite YA Fantasy series.
I do love Richelle Mead, her series Succubus Blues is also one of my favorite UF series ever.

What you'll find in this series:
Entertainment from beginning to end. Action, emotion, badassery, growth, adventure, VAMPIRES, fighters, excitement, suspense, intrigue, passion, love.
Great plot. Brilliant story evolution, believable succession of events and excellent plot development.
Fantastic characters and character development. Intel

Karen at For What It's Worth and Mary at The Book Swarm occasionally post twitter-style reviews. Karen calls hers Short and Tweet, and I am going to borrow that review style here.

Tweet Review:

I was on bedrest for my back and had some free time, so I wanted to re-read these.

I love it just as much the second time around. I loved Rose's strength, sarcasm, and loyalty to Lissa. The romance is hot and rooted for them all the way through. Highly recommend if you haven't read them. A series that gets

I. Love. This. Book!!!!
Honestly who doesn't? I love Richelle Mead a lot! The way she portrayed the book is just amazing!
Look at the Genre. Vampire is something cliché if you look at other books but in this book the vampires are explained not as creatures who suck blood and kill but as creatures having their own life trying best to live without bothering humans. How she tells us that they keep humans to drink from them a.k.a feeders. Before they used to interact with them and they got unfertile

One of the best book series I have ever read! The name originally through me off when I was debating whether or not to buy this book but I decided to give it a shot and boy am I glad I did! This is tied for number one, along with the Mortal Instruments Series, as my favorite books ever. Richelle writes in such a way that you become super in love with all the characters. Since you're reading it from Rose's POV it's almost like you are her. You get sad when she does, get mad when she does, and fal ...more

Shelves: richelle-mead
I loved this entire series, (I had to add the other two books separately) and everything Richelle has written. Her main character, Rose, kicks butt both literally and figuratively. I love that her main character, as with all her series; is a strong female, who also has her own flaws. I will admit that I was extremely frustrated with a large part of the fourth book (Blood Promise)but it was an important part of the growth of her character.
If you love this series, then you should read Bloodlines.

I enjoyed Vampire Academy more than the Twilight series. It was hotter and more exciting. Different kinds of vamps in this set that will keep you wanting more.

One of the most addicting books I have ever read. It has romance with one of the main characters who can kick butt and every character you see grows and you can't help but to fall in love with them.

The most amazing YA paranormal romance series EVER!
Dec 29, 2016 rated it it was amazing
When I'd gone to my home town for a holiday, I'd got myself a first copy of this book and decided when I'm bored in the evenings, I'll just read it to pass the time.

Now I am a proud owner of the whole franchise.

I have read every single book within a day. I couldn't go to sleep, I couldn't function before I read the book. I loved the main characters and I loved how well written the books are. I loved the drama, suspense and definitely the romance (not only once, but few).

If you like vampiers,

Richelle Mead is an amazing author. This book series is fascinating, romantic, and fun. I love paranormal romance books and this is an example of some of the best. Lissa and Rose have a unique bond that grows as the books progress. The way that the author created the Dhampir and Strigoi is a brilliant addition to this series; who is the good who is the evil and is it really that cut and dry?

The story starts getting realty good when they add the connection between Rose and her tutor of all things

Though I was way outside of the YA age group when I read this I loved it! If you weren't hooked by the first book ... you will be now!

The world was SO well created and the characters jump off the page. It is easy to fall in love or hate with them.

Each book got better as you grew to know the characters, there dynamics and the conflicts in their world! Plenty of action and MUCH better done than the movie that followed years later!

Four books into the series and I can't wait for more!

This is my all time favorite series. I love Rose and Adrian. They are my favorite YA characters. I love everything about these three books.

Vampire Academy - 5 stars

I loved the writing and the story. This book got me hooked from the very first page and I loved it.

Frostbite - 5 stars

Frostbite is my favorite in the series.

Shadow Kiss - 5 stars

I loved this as well and that ending comes out of no where.

Blood Promise - 5 stars

Even though Rose was annoying in this one, I enjoyed it.
