Editorial Reviews

Voya Reviews, April 2014 (Vol. 36, No. 1) - Marissa Wolf
The stakes are higher than ever before for Lissa, a mortal vampire princess, and Rose, her half-human, half-vampire guardian in the third graphic novel adaptation of Mead’s hit Vampire Academy series. Rose is looking forward to spending her field training with Lissa but is distraught when she is assigned to Christian instead. Her secret relationship with Dimitri is the only thing keeping her going, but as always, she is torn between taking care of herself and dedicating her life to Lissa. Rose’s bond with Lissa has grown since she was Shadow Kissed (brought back to life), and as a result, she begins to take on Lissa’s darkness and pain. When Dimitri is turned by the Strigoi, the immortal vampires, Rose leaves Lissa and the academy to make things right. Shadow Kiss, as with the other two graphic novels in the series, has been nicely adapted, with good pacing, great action sequences, and characters with a range of expressive emotions. It is important to note, however, that because this is an abridged adaptation, some of the character development and plot details that made the series so popular are not as strong in this format. Mature readers will be happy to see a short—steamy, yet not too graphic—sex scene between Rose and Dimitri. Whether as a novel or a graphic novel, this series has high appeal. Reviewer: Marissa Wolf; Ages 15 to 18.

Gr 9 Up—This is no Twilight rip-off, but a graphic novel adaption of a popular series that paranormal aficionados will love. Mead's "Vampire Academy" books (Penguin), which showcases a world of vampire royalty and the Dhampirs, half-vampire/half-humans, who must protect them at all costs. This third installment, tells the continuing story of Rose (a Dhampir) and Lissa, her best friend and a Moroi princess, who has the gift of channeling magic from the earth. Many would like to get their hands on the royal, and this tale highlights that danger as well as some new surprises. The full, rich colors and enticing artwork will have fans and newcomers alike picking up this volume. The characters are consistently well drawn, and the flow of the panels is appealing to the eye. The narrative picks up right where the last entry left off, and it can be confusing for those who have not read the previous titles: many plotlines are in continuation, and it's difficult for teens to understand the characters' motives if they are not aware of past dilemmas. Otherwise, this version is smooth and easy to comprehend. A great purchase if Mead's novels are popular or for beefing up graphic novel collections with fun, easy reads.—Mariela Siegert, Westfield Middle School, Bloomingdale, IL

    Pretty good

    Oh wow, I really got to catch up on the book series. So this was pretty good. That page with Rose and Christian was awesome. They make a good team. Same with the Frostbite cover.

    Anyway, this sequel like I said is really good. I guess its the same as the books. But with this its graphic novel form?
