Description: Lissa Dragomir is a Moroi princess: a mortal vampire with an unbreakable bond to the earth's magic. She must be protected at all times from Strigoi; the fiercest and most dangerous vampires--the ones who never die. The powerful blend of human and vampire blood that flows through Rose Hathaway, Lissa's best friend, makes her a Dhampir; she is dedicated to a dangerous life of protecting Lissa from the Strigoi, who are hell-bent on making her one of them. After two years of illicit freedom, Rose and Lissa are caught and dragged back to St. Vladimir's Academy, hidden in the deep forests of Montana. Rose will continue her Dhampir education. Lissa will go back to being Queen of the elite Moroi social scene. And both girls will resume breaking hearts. Fear made Lissa and Rose run away from St. Vladimir's--but their world is fraught with danger both inside and out of the Academy's iron gates. Here, the cutthroat ranks of the Moroi perform unspeakable rituals and their secretive nature and love of the night creates an enigmatic world full of social complexities. Rose and Lissa must navigate through this dangerous world, confront the temptation of forbidden romance, and never once let their guard down, lest the Strigoi make Lissa one of them forever....

Cover: The cover drew me in pretty well. Especially since the chick looks like Angelina Jolie. I think it's her, I don't know, is it? Plus, the title drew me in, me being a vampire fan and all. Review: Okay, so let's just start off with saying I LOVE THIS BOOK! Richelle Mead is by far one of my favorite authors! But why is she one of my favs? Because of all the intense raw emotion, she put into each paragraph. You'll be dragged in from the action, laughing at the sarcastic wit, and lovin' every moment of it. Rose can kick ass, drag in the boys, and keep dishing out the sarcasm. Dimitri can keep a perfectly blake an expression better than a brick, kick ass without even breaking a sweat, and fit his tall figure into the best crossed-legs-casual form anyone has seen. Lissa can breakhearts, drink blood, and look perfect while doing anything. And I just love the 'love scandal' between two of the characters. Figure it out! When i first read this book it was just a month after the 5th book had come, so i bought myself a copy. And i devoured the series in about 7 days flat. Weird-ish freak, that is I. There's 6 books in the series, and the 6th book will be coming out on December 7th, this year.
