Synopsis (Goodreads)
Lissa Dragomir is a Moroi princess: a mortal vampire with an unbreakable bond to the earth’s magic. The powerful blend of human and vampire blood that flows through Rose Hathaway, Lissa’s best friend, makes her a Dhampir. Rose is dedicated to a dangerous life of protecting Lissa from the Strigoi, who are hell-bent on making her one of them. 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.

It is official… This series is now one of my all time favourite series {next to Harry Potter, of course}. I managed to read all 6 books in 2 1/2 weeks. It’s the first time I’ve ever marathoned a series back-to-back.

Initial reactions after finishing the series:
-happy dances- Lissa & Christian
-cheers- Dimka
-gapes- Tasha…
-wraps in warm blanket and pets hair- Adrian

Mead sure as hell knows how to create an amazing world that you just cannot help but dive into head first each time you pick up one of her books.

I have been told by many people that her Bloodlines series is just as good, if not better, than Vampire Academy, so I guess I’m going to go and check that out. I mean, I sure do love me some Adrian Ivashkov.
