Sometimes, I feel like the only person who hasn’t read certain bestsellers. Vampire Academy, by Richelle Mead, just so happens to be one of those series. I do know how addicting her books are, because I’ve read BLOODLINES (yes, I know, I’m not reading them in order). Given the fact that Vampire Academy debuts as a movie this year – I’m all the more excited to get my hands on the series.
The excitement is continuing to build for the film adaptation of Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy series as the Valentine’s Day release date draws closer! The director of Mean Girls and the writer of Heathers are the force behind this adaptation of book 1 of author Richelle Mead’s #1 international bestselling series. The books are published in over 30 countries and have sold 8 million copies in the US alone.
In a school of mortal Moroi vampires, their Dhampir bodyguards must guard them from threats both near and far, from evil and immortal Strigoi vampires to vicious classmates and high school politics. One of those high school threats can be seen in the latest movie clip.
Rose, Richelle Mead’s beloved half vampire/half human protagonist, is not Bella, Buffy, or Elena or a facsimile of other popular YA characters. She’s a profoundly strong, sometimes out of control, defender of her best friend Lissa. And the core of the Vampire Academy series is that friendship.
The film adaptation of Vampire Academy is the next cultural phenomenon and thanks to Penguin and Sullivan & Partners, I have an exclusive giveaway of Vampire Academy in celebration of the upcoming film adaptation next month! You can enjoy the first book in the series before you see the movie and relive the exciting story of Rose and Lissa’s friendship and their dangerous adventures.

St. Vladimir’s Academy isn’t just any boarding school–it’s a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They’ve been on the run, but now they’re being dragged back to St. Vladimir’s–the very place where they’re most in danger. . . .
Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy’s ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi–the world’s fiercest and most dangerous vampires–make Lissa one of them forever.
