I liked this book. It's nice to see the main characters being two strong females. I really am intereted in getting to know Christian better and I hope that he's around in the other books.

I was nervous when I started reading the series, hoping that it was not like the House of Night series and I'm happy to report that it isn't. While I found parts of the book dragged, the plot and characters were interesting and I look forward to reading more of the series.

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 night-time rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi - the world's fiercest and most dangerous vampires - make Lissa one of them forever.
