Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, half-human and half-vampire, training to be a guardian of the Moroi, peaceful, mortal vampires living discretely within our world. Her legacy is to protect the Moroi from bloodthirsty, immortal vampires, the Strigoi. Along with her best friend, Princess Vasilisa Dragomir, a Moroi and the last of her family line, with whom she has a nigh unbreakable bond, Rose must run away from her school St. Vladimir's, in order to protect Lissa from those who wish to harm the princess and use her for their own means.

So what did you think of that trailer?

  1. I have SO many favorite scenes but my most memorable one is definitely the scene at the end of Shadow Kiss when Dimitri got captured right after he and Rose FINALLY admitted their love for each other. Possibly one of the most heart breaking scenes in the history of heartbreaking scenes!
    Thanks for the chance to win a double pass!

  2. ***SPOILERS***

    I think when Dimitri turns Strigoi. It's very heartbreaking and I just felt ALL THE FEELS. I almost threw my book against the wall.

    Excellent giveaway by the way, thanks Michelle and StudioCanal.

  3. I thought I've posted my comment but it's not showing up so... I'll try again (sorry if it's showing twice later on!)

    I've only read book 1 and the one scene that really stuck in my head is the one with Rose and Dimitri in his bedroom ;)

    as always, awesome giveaway, Mich!

  4. Gah! There are way too many great scenes to choose from...hmm maybe in Blood Promise when Rose goes to visit Dimitri's family and Dimitri's grandma makes her carry a bag of bricks to the spirit users' house. That was pretty funny haha. I quite like the scene where she first meets Adrian in Frostbite as well. Mostly because Adrian is my favourite character in the VA/Bloodlines saga :)

    Thanks for the giveaway, Mich!

  5. If anyone is having trouble with blogger accepting their entry, a couple of you have expressed this to me, email me your entry to tintinbrains@bigpond.com and I will personally copy and paste it into the comments for you. WE SHALL OVERCOME THE BLOGGER GREMLIN

  6. Vampire Academy is my favourite book series ever!! I'd love to take my daughter to the movies to see it with me.
    One of my favourite scenes is in Last Sacrifice at the election when Rose rips off the charmed bracelet that is disguising her and says "I'm Rose Hathaway." I can just picture that being on the big screen one day.

  7. would love to win this prize.have not read the books before but my friend has and loves them.Would be awesome to take her with me.Rose is the name of one of the characters

  8. In Frostbite Adrian invites Rose and Lissa swimming... what ensues might be one of my many favourite scenes ;-) (Can you tell I Luuurve Adrian?!)
    My VA fangirl buddy is dying to see it too, there is no doubt we'd use at least one double pass in the few times we'll go!!!

    PS thank you for the giveaway!

  9. Why am I not living in Australia?!

    1. Awww Matey, that would be fun if you did :D I could be your local neighbourhood library.

  10. Getting some great scenes!! Keep them coming. Caroline from Studiocanal has this link so she can see what y'all are writing down.

  11. So far the odds are looking brilliant for some of you to take home a double pass.

  12. This isn't exactly creative, but at least i'm being honest, THE CABIN SCENE! Need I say more

    1. I was wondering if somebody would pick that scene ... * waggles eyebrows * It'a super fun scene to see in the Graphic novel...heheee!!

  13. Oh boy, so many good scenes, but i can't choose between that cabin scene where Rose and Dimitri finally give in and then he gets taken, or the scene in Frost Bite where Rose meets Adrian for the first time.

  14. Keep the entries coming I love hearing all your fave scenes :D

  15. Ok, So Aimie had trouble loading her comment here, so I am copy and pasting her answer in for her.

    I cried the whole way through Blood Promise but the most touching scene has to be the bonfire for Dimitri. :) thanks.


  16. Ahh there are so many memorable and amazing scenes to choose from! but my most favourite scene would have to be in Blood Promise. The part when Rose is kept captive my Dimitri. The scene is such a different take on the type of person Dimitri is now that his a strigoi. His love for Rose is more domineering and the scenes during and after is just so passionate and raw and even though Rose is held there against her will, a time with Dimitri is something she'll always cherish and I definitely feel for her during the bridge battle. And it also just goes to show the type of character Dimitri is even when his being turned into a bad guy, he's still a representation for fans and for Rose that true love never truly dies.

    Thanks for this amazing competition! <3

  17. OkI have to add a comment for Monique Altemuhl

    Hi Michelle

    Tamika said her favourite was the cabin scene…..though she loved everything about all the books….

  18. I want to see the psi-hounds and hope they're better done than the ones in Twilight.

  19. I'd like my daughter to read these, and me too. A character is Rose Hathaway :)

  20. My favourite scene is in the beginning of the first book when Rose and Lissa are about to be caught by the guardians and Rose meets Dimitri for the first time. Rose is so protective over Lissa and it's amazing to see that Dimitri is the man she will fall in love with even though he seems like the enemy at the start :)


  21. Haven't read Vampire Academy yet. But I currently have the book! Rosemarie Hathaway is quite a lovely name. It has a nice ring to it!

  22. It has to be when Rose runs to Dimitri when Lissa is in trouble and they're both overcome by the spell cast on Rose's charm. I think it's a huge turning point in the book, seeing Dimitri with his guard down, making him appear more human. Not to mention being super sexy.

    Regardless, I'll be seeing it and dragging hubby along with me. We don't often get to go out on dates :)
