I rate this book 3 out of 5 stars.
(Finished Reading: 28/10/13
My 36th book so far this year.)
This book is about a runaway Moroi Royal Vampire known and Lissa and her possible future Dhampir guardian called Rose. Strigoi Vampires are the darkest and evil of Vampires. They are all after Lissa who holds a secret magical gift.
St Vladimir school finally gets them back onto Campus and this is where the rest of this book takes place.
Like any other school full of teenage students there is much gossip between friendship groups. Rivalries between those who fight for the same person they are crushing on. Cunning plans to humiliate those they dislike and the power struggle for popularity amongst them all.
St Vladimir’s believe all Moroi vampire’s are safer on site, but Rose believes otherwise. She searches and explores every possibility to prove her suspicions as well as protecting her best friend no matter what.
The book started off quite slow and I expected much more action. I could only stretch to a 3 star review. There’s only so much you can write about when a bunch of teenage girl’s “fight”.
The book is definitely written for a younger audience, say early to mid teens. But I love the idea of the Strigoi and I still want to read the next book of the series to find out if Lissa can develop her powers without becoming Strigoi.
