I am a 28 year old woman reading this young adult series. I picked it up at the local Walmart one day because I was bored... I didn't expect much so I was very pleasantly surprised! Yeah, a lot of teen books are described as "goody two shoes" or whatever. The thing I like about them is that I can enjoy the characters and plot without the adult content. For an adult who wants to escape, I say it's perfect. Rose--the main character--and her inner struggle with her feelings for instructor, Dimitri and stirring emotions about wanting to go forge her OWN way kept me pretty hooked. I read all three of the available books in a WEEK. Well written, romantic and emotional. If you liked the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer I think you will actually like this better. :)

Ok I'll start out with the simple fact that I'm one of those people who get intrigued by the persons sense of writing. Yes story is very, very, very important but how can you express a creative story with such bland writing. I didnt like it I'm sorry, it just seemed like the writer was talking to someone, instead of expressing an actual story. The words phrases were dull, the constant expressions were cheezy, and to top it off half the time I was literally forcing myself to read it. The only thing good about the book is the cover, and it sort of seems cliche in a sense. Vampires like 'gothic' atmospheres ok we get it, I didnt like it and I usually love most vampire books. If you want a good book about a vampire academy, read Vampire Knight its a manga/graphic novel but even there the writing is better -_-.

    Twilight Wannabe- forbiden romance?!

    Boring. Bascially a *vampire princess* and her bodyguard bff running from killers who end up in the same place they came from. And then they end up falling in love?! Poorly written.

    Extremely Boring

    I tried reading this because the summary seemed interesting but in truth it was horribly boring and I couldn't even get through the first 20 pages. By saying being bitten is like having sex even though you never have is a lot to say and I thought it was kinda stupid to compare it to that. I wouldn't recomend this book to anyone.
