Twilight is perhaps the quintessential YA romance novel, notorious for its movie
adaptation and public division over the love interests. Bella Swan has just left her big-city life in
Phoenix to join her father in the small forested town of Forks, Washington. Not even past the
first day of school, she begins to notice odd things - like the pale and beautiful but isolated
family that is the Cullens. Especially Edward Cullen - who seems completely infuriated and

The second novel in the Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead, The Golden Lily, definitely lives up to the first book. Sydney continues to become more immersed in the world of her Moroi comrades, making it difficult for her to distinguish what is right, especially when she begins to feel drawn to Adrian.

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead is a paranormal, young adult, Vampire Academy spin-off series. Jill Dragomir is in danger, threatening Lissa’s place as queen. When Jill is sent into hiding, Sydney is assigned to be her protector. Her childhood was defined by the condemnation of Moroi, but now she must live among them. Although I didn’t care for Sydney in the Vampire Academy books, I was hooked on her character by the end of this novel.

The sixth and final book in the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead, Last Sacrifice, was a great finale. Queen Tatianna is murdered, and Rose is framed by an unknown source; Rose, Lissa, and friends must figure out who framed Rose and find Lissa’s hidden half-sibling to make things right. This installment was much better than Spirit Bound; it took on more of an exciting and mysterious thriller quality than its predecessors, and Rose seemed more like her old self.

Spirit Bound, the fifth novel in Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy series, was all over the place. After returning from her journey to Siberia, Rose is caught up in the hope of turning Dimitri back into a damphir. Rose recruits Lissa, Eddie, and some unlikely friends to return Dimitri to his original state while preparing to become an ocial guardian. This book was more drawn out than it needed to be; it was especially slow initially; however, things did pick up closer to the middle of the book.

Blood Promise, the fourth book in Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy series, is the best of the series so far. After Dimitri is turned into a strigoi, Rose abandons her old life, including her best friend, to find and kill the man she loved. After traveling to Russia, Rose finally finds Dimitri, but instead of killing him, she is kidnapped by him. While Rose is being held by a group of strigoi, Lissa is stuck at St.

Shadow Kiss is the third book in the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead. This installment explores what it means to be shadow kissed and Rose's feelings for Dimitri. When Rose's mind is tainted by unexplainable darkness, and she begins to see ghosts, including Mason's, she must decide who she will confide in, risking her closest relationships while trying to move on. I absolutely loved Rose's continued character development; she took a giant step toward becoming more mature in this book.

Frostbite, the second novel in Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy series, was even better than the first book. After a mysterious strigoi attack threatens the protections surrounding St. Vladimir's Academy, the student body takes a trip to a ski lodge. On the trip, controversy arises among the moroi, and Rose is held hostage by a group of strigoi.

Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy, the first book in a series of the same name, was excellent.
