Vampire Academy- Richelle Mead
An opinion without giving too much away.
It took me six nights to finish six books. As in all vampire books there is a struggle of love between two characters, but in this book, it felt as if there were so many others involved that it wasn’t just about the two lead characters, and that there were other people that were heavily involved and that you cared for.
Richelle Mead created a different take on classic vampires. There were different types and levels, as well as classes and education majors for each type. A very creative take on all the vampire twists out there. The main character Rose takes you through the journey of her life as she tries to save her best friend, her boyfriend, her friends, and how she sacrifices certain things in her life for others; through her struggles, her passions, her desires, and her mistakes.
The books are a fast, easy, and entertaining read for late middle school and early high school students. The sixth book combines the entire series and lets the reader have the moral effects of Rose’s actions, how her actions of what she wants and how she gets it weigh on others, and how her actions actually have consequences, which most books and movies do not address.
This is a great book series. I enjoyed it for a vampire story. Giving any details to the book will give too much away.
