What the community says about Vampire Academy

  • Raymond Carlson
    Written on May 2, 2018
    "The "Vampire Academy" books are not exactly high art, but they do compare somewhat well to the fairly maligned "Twilight" books, which are most definitely not groundbreaking works of fiction either! It's a little more complex and intricate than Twilight, so I suppose it might be of marginally greater educational value. This is the first book in this series, so this is the one to buy if you want to get into this collection of, I believe, six related works."

    "Vampire Academy is an interesting fiction about vampires who are in boarding school. Probably a good book for teenagers."

    "I'm not sure about a knight in shining armor, but Vampire Academy is certainly an exciting book -- one you can really sink your fangs into! There's certainly adventure and scandal. I'm about to read it right now."

    "A Russian boarding school vampire romance novel. This is interesting to say the least. The Russian spin on this type of story is certainly a fun and entertaining one. Definitely recommended for the setting itself."

    "I wouldn't necessarily say that Vampire Academy is about elemental powers. However, it is a pretty good horror book if you like that type of thing."

    "Is anyone sick of vampire stuff yet? Looking at it, I guess I am the only one. Look, the writing is fine, you get the usual forbidden romance that has been beaten into us over and over.. So if you aren't fatigued on any of these, get it. You'll love it. Otherwise, run!"

    "I work at a middle school and we order this series for our library. The kids are nuts about this set. We have started ordering more than one copy and they are checked out as soon as they hit the shelves."
  • Katherine Beck

    "I will admit that I have had an obsession with vampires since I was a teen, and I've seen the movie based on this book, so I kind of had to get it. It's surprisingly good, and does take me back to the days of daydreaming about the eternal kiss and other fantastical romantic things. Really a good choice for that!"

    "Vampire Academy is a paranormal romance novel that is sure to suit anyone looking for paranormal books featuring vampires."
  • Rosa Arroyo

    "Vampire Academy is fun and saucy; I loved reading every minute of it. This first book in the series sets up the story and characters beautifully. The romance isn't too heavy-handed and the other relationships and friendships feel really real--the dialogue is wonderful!"

    "I found my daughter reading this, so I glanced through it. It's better than Twilight. That's about all I can say about yet another forbidden romance with a bunch of blood suckers. I just know she's going to grow up to date a politician. "
  • Charvi Khan

    "This is a great young adult novel for girls. The main characters are two strong female leads and best friends. The story is also great for girls that love vampire or paranormal stories. "
  • Ajay Dasgupta

    "Vampire Academy was, for me, an unexpectedly gripping young adult romance novel. The evolving relationship between Rose and Lissa is an inspiring tale that will teach young people a lot about forbidden love. I would recommend this book to adults and teenagers alike."

    "What a great read! I just finished reading Vampire Academy and I think it's one of the best YA romance books out there that has unlikely couples. I love that this book is part of a 6-part series and I can't wait to read all the other parts. "
  • Vivian Long
    Written on May 7, 2018
    "I don't think this is one of the best novels featuring teacher or professor leads. I think this is a great book. But in this book Rose fell for Dimitri who is technically her teacher in the book and I don't that is a lesson you want anyone to learn. "
  • Martha Watson

    "If someone wanted to find the best romance novel with strong and smart heroines, Amazon is an okay place to search. You can search by sub-categories all the way to Romance, Horror and Vampires. You'll have to search reviews and summaries to determine whether you think the heroine is strong and smart though."
  • Roberto Carrera
    Written on April 30, 2018
    "This is the first book in the series, and is a slow-burning forbidden romance. It is better than most supernatural YA romances, especially those with vampires. The story is unique - you will not find another like it."
  • Kathryn Gardner
    Written on April 29, 2018
    "This is a good start to a series because while it does conclude well at the end, there are still parts of the story and some situations that need further explanation that made me want to continue to read the next books. It does have a young adult feel to it but without the simple language and lack of detail in those types of books."

    "My daughter is into any kind of vampire story. I got her this audio book for her birthday and she thoroughly enjoyed it. We were going on a long car trip and since she gets motion sickness and can't read the audio book was perfect. It kept her attention the whole ride and she said she'd listen to Vampire Academy again on the way back. "

    "It's a little random to find authors by their surnames but everyone has their reasons. I did come across this book Called Vampire Academy while looking for a good book. It's by Richelle Mead and it's about a princess and her friend during their stay at an academy. It's really good and it's the first of many. "

    "My daughter has been a fan of books with monster girls for a while now. It seems like that's all she has been reading lately! I decided to pick up Vampire Academy for her as I had heard good things from a friend. My daughter read this book pretty fast. She told me she think it's one of the best monster books that she has read."

    "I love Vampire Academy! The female leads are strong and unconventional. There is plenty of the high school drama one would expect from a book for teens, but the story also includes more in depth issues such as sexism and racism. The fantasy characters are not over the top but they also are not the basic overtold stories either. "

    "Vampire Academy is one of the best young adult novels involving sex and pregnancy. I didn't know how appropriate this was for my teenager so I read it myself. I found it entertaining and not at all encouraging with the whole sex thing. This book got my teenager reading so I greatly approve of it."

    "This doesn't seem all that promising. Indeed, it seems to resemble Harry Potter quite a bit. But this is a surprisingly fresh and involving book. The main character is a rich, complex person who isn't always good but is always understandable. The plot is believable. I found myself caring deeply about this entirely fictional world. "
  • Frances Baker

    "This isn't the typical boarding school story as it involves the supernatural, specifically vampires. Luckily it isn't as tacky as most teen vampire books are. The characters are complex and the book explores Russian vampire lore, but if you're after a normal, strictly human boarding school novel, keep looking."
  • Bruce Green
    Written on May 9, 2018
    "I really wanted to like Vampire Academy. But it's impossible to read this book without constantly comparing it to Harry Potter and Twilight. It's too self-consciously aware of its own parallels to those stories."

    "Honestly, it works as a great solution. In a world where we desperately need more and more young heroines, these novels serve as a great initial response. They bring forth multiple strong and three dimensional female role models, with complicated bloodsucking/human inner emotions. And best of all, it's a relatable, page turning story."
    Pamela Scott
    Written on May 7, 2018
    "This book was a great example of a YA novel with a strong heroine character. It's very much a fantasy novel, but the main character Lissa is a strong and admirable character that young girls can confidently look up to. "
