Look out for Bloodlines, Richelle Mead's new series set in the world of Vampire Academy, coming August 2011!

The astonishing final novel in Richelle Mead's epic series!
Murder. Love. Jealousy. And the ultimate sacrifice. Now, with Rose on trial for her life and Lissa first in line for the Royal Throne, nothing will ever be the same between them.


I read all 6 Vampire Academy books in 7 days, I went on a hardcore marathon. I admit I felt a tad sad when it was all over, last page turned, last words read. I was looooovvvving Dimitri and loving Adrian, oh I want Adrian to get a gal. Dimitri is just simply gorgeous. Richelle made Rose and Dimitri work very hard for their love at the cost of Adrian’s feelings.

This book has it all, a jail bird, some explosive times, a love or two that won’t give up, a mystery or two to be solved, Sydney makes an appearance and Abe is well, Abe. Somebody isn’t playing nice and Rose needs to clear her name.

Lissa has to make some important descisions, life all of a sudden got very serious, people are now depending on her, she needs to rise to the occasion.

We get a bit more insight into Sydney and how much the Alchemists know about Moroi , dhampir and The Keepers. How much they actually help and work with Moroi.

A rather funny scene amongst The Keepers, it was nice to see Dimitri smiling even if it was for the wrong reasons.

I liked how Richelle had us continually in Lissa’s head so it kept the reader up to the moment on what was happening in The Courts. Adrian is doing his dream thingy he does , keeping that love triangle ripe in our minds. I think Adrian is gorgeous, he has his problems but he just isn’t the right fit for Rose...I want Richelle to find him somebody, he deserves it. He is always there for Rose . I think Adrian knows that Dimitri will always hold Rose’s heart whether their love can be reignited or not , her heart is with Dimitri.

I was happy the way this book finished up. I am hoping with the ‘Bloodlines’ series, which is looking like 6 books, has some of these characters reappearing in this spin off series....... a couple characters move on to ‘Bloodlines’ as it is their series... I’m just not quite ready to give them all up. I feel like some of the characters still have a voice.


“Ah, my daughter, “ he said. “ Eighteen, and already you’ve been accused of murder, aided felons, and acquired a death count higher than most guardians will ever see.” He paused. “ I couldn’t be prouder.”

"I don’t belong to anyone. I make my own choices."

"And you’re with Adrian," said Dimitri.

"But I was meant for you."



  1. Love Abe's quote! This book was good and I'm also sad to see it go, Vampire Academy was one of my favorite series and I hope the new spin-off series lives up to it.

  2. Ha!! Yes it's a very Abe quote:D

  3. Glad to see another VA fan! That's cool how you read all 6 books in a week! I'm Team Adrian but I wasn't too heartbroken about the ending surprisingly because I guess Dimitri and Rose did have closer matching personalities. I'm so excited for Bloodlines!

  4. Hi Midnight Bloom,

    I can't wait for Bloodlines not long now:D
