This a great story about friendship, love, loyalty, and betrayal. Rose will do anything to protect her friend Lissa. Dimitri sees that loyalty to Lissa and agrees to help Rose become the guardian Lissa needs. During this training, there are a lot of high school antics that the characters deal with: bullying, love, friendship, curfews, and detention. One character even deals with cutting, which the author handles beautifully. She doesn’t glorify it, in fact, she even involves the secrecy of the act beforehand and the healing process afterward. At the end of the book, you will be glad you read it. It will feel like the characters stories are wrapped up enough that you don’t feel left hanging, however it leaves just enough at the end to make you excited to read the second one Frostbite.

Those who know me can attest to the fact that Richelle Mead is my favorite author. Her characters are amazing and I never want to let them go. Fortunately for me, with 2017 bringing the 10th anniversary of the original Vampire Academy novels release, Penguin Razorbill put out a 10th anniversary edition. Who cares that I already have the original paperback (personally autographed last spring!) AND the ebook edition. The cover of this edition is absolutely epically beautiful. I couldn’t pass it up. And as if that weren’t enough for me to throw my money at them, they went and threw in a bunch of bonus stories for us diehard fans to more fully immerse ourselves in the VA universe. And immerse myself I did. I didn’t re-read the original story because I’ve read it so many times already, but I did read all of the short stories and they ended far too soon! THE TURN AND THE FLAME This story features Christian’s aunt Tatiana, just before and shortly after her brother and his wife—Christian’s parents— willingly choose to become Strigoi, the dark and evil undead vampires. Tatiana is a controversial character in the VA universe due to her relationship with Dimitri and…arm…some poor life choices she makes later in the series. I’ve always found her fascinating so I loved getting this peek into how she went from a young girl questioning her place in society to a strong woman fighting for the rights of the Dahmpires and Moroi. QUOTES: Tatiana leaned closer. “You’re only here to look pretty, dear. Not to give your opinions. See that you remember that.” There were a million possible responses to that, but there was only one that Tasha was allowed to make: “Th-thank you, your Majesty.” FROM THE JOURNAL OF VASILISA DRAGOMIR Throughout the VA series we don’t get to see much from Lissa’s POV, so this was a really interesting look not only at the life she and Rose had while on the run (see quote below), but also of her descent into the madness Spirit causes. Loved this. QUOTES: March 25 It turns out you can’t put aluminum foil in the microwave. We have to go shopping again to buy a new one for the house. THE MEETING This story is SUPER short, but it gives us a small glimpse into Dimitri’s head when he first meets Rose. A must read for Romitri shippers! QUOTES: But there was a look in her eyes now that said this was no joke, that she would die a thousand times over before she let anyone harm the princess at her back. She reminded me of a cornered wildcat, sleek and beautiful—but fully capable of clawing your face off if provoked. HELLO, MY NAME IS ROSE HATHAWAY Hands down my favorite bonus story. Rose takes on the task of winning a covert scavenger hunt on campus. Full of Rose’s loyalty to Lissa, chemistry with Dimitri (Swoon! I don’t even ship them all that hard!), and hilarious antics. With Rose, if it can go wrong, it probably will. QUOTES: Mason regarded me with awe and affection—and also concern. “Rose, I love it when you’re crazy, but this might even be beyond you.” I stood up, turned around, and found myself looking right at Dimitri. And not just any Dimitri. Dimitri dressed as a cowboy.
