Vampire Academy the Complete Series Box Set Reviews

    This series is just pure excellence.When starting the book, I was pretty sure that this book would be like most of the books I've read - boring, cliched. However, when I read the first book, I got hooked, I couldn't stop reading. I sacrificed my sleep to finish the book, and I finished the whole series in about a week. This series is completely action-packed - what makes it special. Action, action, action. You'll never get bored. The twists and turns are just amazing. What I like most is the romance between the characters. Their relationships are very special, one that you do not often find. It is very heartwarming, and you can't find a lot of books with characters like that. Rose and Dimitri were completely made for each other. They made up for each other's weaknesses. My favourite part though, would be the heart pounding moments when Rose Hathaway - the main character - does something reckless. You can never tear your eyes off from those moments. I also love this book because the author chose to write about them at their age. She could've chose to write it when they were younger, or older, but she chose those moments - those moments whereby the characters in the story mature. Watching Rose growing up, maturing, I was deeply touched. From a reckless immature girl, she grew up to become someone who is level-headed, and understands her duty, and the weight of it. Likewise for the rest of the characters.Never before have I thought that I would be this affected by a book. For I am still young and immature, just like Rose, I never thought that I would be thinking about it so much. I haven't realized my duty, what I needed to do, until now. I haven't realized how immature I was, I haven't realized how my actions are just plain idiotic, and how heavy the weight of my actions were, until I read the book. As such, I have started viewing the world differently - and I owe the book for that. Honestly, when I finished the book, I was unsatisfied. Really, perfect ending, perfect. There is even a spin-off series of this book, which explains what happens to the rest of the characters afterwards. Everything was covered, really. However, what I was unsatisfied at was that the book has ended. Of course, it is my fault. I was too hooked on it, I couldn't accept the fact that it has ended. I really really cried after it ended. I wanted to know more, read more, understand more. Its like the ending has left a hole in my heart.Nevertheless, the book was just awesome. Too awesome for words. Richelle Mead has perfectly described the actions of the characters in the books. For a book consisting of fighting, it is extremely difficult to portray and describe the every action of a character. As such, not many books which consist of fighting is as good as this one. Her innovative mind and imagination is also extremely good. Its totally... breathtaking. I applaud her for that. Read it, or you'll miss out. Not to mention, I can proudly say that this is by far the best book I have ever read in my life. Really, I've read hundreds of books, and I can say that this is the best to me. No other books has touched my heart this deeply.

    YES YES YES YES YES YES.This is one of my favorite series of all time. I freakin love Rose, the main character. She's kick ass and awesome and the series is so amazing.My rank of favoritism:1) Blood Promise (book four)2) Last Sacrifice (book 6)3) Spirit Bound (book 5)4) Shadow Kiss (book 3)5) Frost Bite (book 2)6) Vampire Academy (Book 1)Lemme explain.I love the fourth book the best probably because of the hero's journey. She goes all the way to Russia, where she has to fight Dimitri and fight her own inner turmoil and struggles and the book is just done so beautifully. I truly love Richelle Mead for writing these books.There is almost no slow moment throughout this entire series. I literally stayed up all night reading it, yelling at the book, crying with it. At the end of Shadow Kiss I was nearly sobbing.I became so emotionally invested in the characters and the story and the world. Everything is wonderful!!Characters (for the heck of it):1) ROSE HATHAWAY (this is one of the only series/books where I can say that my favorite character is the main one. But Rose is just so selfless and kick ass and beautiful and caring and funny and kick ass that I just can't help but hold so much love for her.)2) Adrian Ivashkov (of course. He is hilarious and rebellious and tormented and I just love it.)3) Christian (Yay! I love him. He is very good to Lissa, good to everyone really. He's funny and is a good friendly match for Rose's personality. He also kicks ass--*cough* Shadow Kiss *cough*--and I love him very much.)etc etcAnyway, GREAT series!!

    What kept me going from book to book (total 6) in a span of 3 and half days, you ask me? DIMITRI. DIMITRI. DIMITRI.So do I have a new crush (more like gut wrenching- overpowering-heart aching- obsessive-unrequited-love)? YES. Do I want to re-read this series? YES. . Although I wanted to smash away the books, whenever the annoying love triangle was thrown in the mix. Do I want to read more paranormal fiction stories? YES. Do I want to read the bloodlines series? HELL NO. Thank you author, for VA, but I think I’ll pass without any more love triangles or other polygons to deal with.Aaah! I started the first book after much contemplation. Somehow Paranormal Fiction didn’t seem very appealing to me before. So VA opens up a whole new world for me to explore.Now let me give you a part history of my acquaintance with the subject here- I hadn’t read any other paranormal romance books before now, including the Twilight series, gave up on the movie versions halfway, and the farthest understanding I have of fantasy creatures is from LOTR, Harry Potter, Disney and some fantastic popular culture- Van Helsing and Vampire Hunter D. I don’t like love triangles, well, mostly. They seem so unnecessary and obviously ANNOYING. That’s the whole problem with the Twilight series. I thought every book in this genre couldn’t do without it. And actually, VA doesn’t do much to squash that opinion of mine, either.HONEST TO GOD! I don’t really see the need for Adrian here, except benefitting a new spin-off series with him in the lead. What’s between Dimitri and Rose is so electric. It’s a no-brainer that, from the start, Rose’s relationship with Adrian didn’t even scratch the surface. Quite frankly, it did seem like she was using the poor guy. Not that I like Adrian (I don’t get how he falls for her- lust, I’ll agree. Love? Who are we kidding.) Their relationship seemed like a friends-with-benefits kinda thing, in the case, some ‘thing’ really happened. And I found the recap of the story as recalled in each succeeding book quite irritating. Books like HP worked well without having to do that. And if the author thinks that is going to help new readers start reading from the middle of a series, then again, I don't think it really helps.Rose is the perfect rebel. She’s feisty, reckless, restless, independent, angry and TONS OF ANNOYING. I can’t understand her hypocrisy and judgmental nature. Dimitri is the opposite- responsible, patient, controlled and everything else wonderful... mmhm...They both complement each other perfectly; we get a sort of Yin-Yang vibe about them. There’s something achingly beautiful and bittersweet about star crossed love. Adrian’s the boy-friend. He’s fun to hang out with, he makes you laugh, but he’s NEVER a good influence on you. Or any influence at all. And nothing good can ever come out of starting something with a boy-friend. If you are having doubts and issues, it’s time to run, girlfriend.BEGINNING- The first two books were great as introduction into the world of these ‘creatures of the night’. Richelle Mead paints a fairly beautiful picture of their world with much detailing. But there may be a few loose ends. What good it did me was the drop back into the world of Hogwarts and magical creatures etc. NOSTALGIA!!! It had been so long since I read any fantasy. Also the relationship between Rose and Dimitri develops slowly and gradually. The chemistry is great. And other characters are also developed well, to level the plane. MIDDLE- Books 3 and 4 were great with some bleak moments in their relationship, which were heartbreaking. The lead characters discover themselves, are on their individual paths to find themselves. Rose transforms a lot during this phase. There were moment when I really believed that Rose had to move on with someone new, and it would be the end of Dimitri. This was against my never ending hope that they’d get together in the end. It was gut wrenching and over powering with so many other emotions.END- Sloppy, very sloppy. The last two books had some of the best and the worst moments in the whole series. First, Adrian. Completely unnecessary, trying to divert the attention to the relationship-that-would-not-work-even-if-Dimitri-was-not-in-the-picture. Saw it coming, but the ending of that seemed very puke inducing. How could Rose not feel guilty enough about that? Again, I’ll mention- I don’t like Adrian. Still. Second, the breaking of Rose and Lissa’s bond. Hey author, i know it is all your creation and all. But this doesn’t really make any sense. Third, Tasha. How could the author create a lovely nice picture of her and rip it apart later, to say she was a witchy little thing. The ending there seemed a little.. off. Now there’s someone I really feel sorry for- Christian. I don’t see a great future for him with murderers (strigoi or not) as relatives! And with the start of the series I thought it would be about a victory over the dark forces. (Like in Harry Potter, where the Death eaters are almost extinct by the time the story wraps up.) This would be four. But then, here unlike the Harry potter series, a mega-sorta- villain was not really developed, you know, to bring about a finale of sorts. For the above reasons I can’t give the series a full five star rating.But if we focus on Rose and Dimitri, I can live with that. The tension between them is brought up to high intensities. And so much more time these two spend around each other, unlike the previous books. In that way, the series leaves me completely satisfied!!! So Imma go back to gushing about DIMITRIIIIIIIIII <3 <3 <3

    This series was absolutely amazing. Possible the best books I have ever read. Richelle Mead's amazing writing never failed to keep me on the edge of my seat (or bed, or bus, or car or everywhere my kindle and I have travelled!), and I was constantly waiting to know what was going to happen next. I have never become to emotionally attached to characters as I have to Rose, Dimitri, Lissa, Christian, Adrian just to name a few. These characters have been brought to life so beautifully, and will definitely continue to live in my heart.To anyone who loves action, mystery, adventure and romance, this series is definitely for you!

    This isn't the regular flowery high school paranormal romance but darker than that. The series starts out good and interesting and as it progresses the plot gets more complicated. The characters like Lissa and Christian are okay, though not that extraordinary despite their awesome powers. I liked the ingenuity of the narrative, making us follow both Rose's and Lissa's adventures at the same time.Now to more important stuffs:Despise is a strong word but it is close to what I do Rose. She is not as smart, cool, funny or sarcastic as she thinks she is. It is amazing how generous and self-sacrificing she considers herself to be, in spite of being utterly selfish, always using people for her own good and then discarding them without second thought and one realizes this gradually as one continues with the series. She is not even that good a fighter as she is made out to be. She almost always needs help from others, some of them even losing their lives to save her's. In other words, Rose is not even close to being one of my favorite rock chicks. In fact, I considered leaving the series mid-way every time she blatantly used someone and then forgot about their help. Adrian is a case in point. I was rooting for him towards the end, though, given Rose's nature, I knew he was going to get his heart broken. He is absolutely right when he says that Rose destroys lives, drawing others into her crazy plans, getting them in all sorts of troubles, and then when her work is done, she just leaves them to their own devices to clean the mess she created. One word: Disgusting.I liked Dimitry from the very beginning,though at times I resented his excessive philosophizing and control. Nevertheless, he is tall, handsome, beautiful, powerful, and appeared almost invincible until he fell prey to the Strigoi. It was a shock how different he became after being transformed and I could sympathize with Rose. But still I would have preferred it if he had stayed dead. Rose fulfilled her promise and it would have been better if it were the end of her and Dimitry's love story. As I said, I was rooting for Adrian and didn't appreciate the way he suffered.Other than that, I also felt that the last book ended a bit abruptly and didn't provide appropriate closure.I would have liked to know more about characters like Sidney and Abe.

    You know the feeling when you read a book, finish it and feel like you don't know what to do with your life anymore? I didn't either.. until i finished this collection's last book.When i first started this, i said wow, another book about vampires, hooray.. However, I couldn't stop reading!!! I sacrificed my sleep, and space in my luggage insisting to carry book no. 4,5 and 6 all way to Greece, rather than more clothes because i couldn't have waited until my return to know what's gonna happen next.This series is completely action-packed - what makes it special. Action, action, action. You'll never get bored. The twists and turns are just amazing. And the characters are A-MA-ZING ! Funny, smart, determined, more funny. Laughing out loud sincerely. They are all just made for each other. Enemies, lovers, friends, teachers.. put toghether perfectly. Richelle Mead, you rock !!!

    I've noticed this thing about Mead's books; the first halves are boring and slow, but the second halves are bloody amazing so that's why I have so many mixed feelings about this series. :/So the first 3 books were pretty good! The last three books were quite disappointing...:( I'm very doubtful about Mead's spinoff series' Bloodlines...

    The movie was atrocious. Pretend it doesn’t exist. The books were fantastic.Storyline wise, I think they get a 3.5/5; but I loved Rose and Dimitri so much that I’m giving this book a solid 5 stars.

    Mein bester Freund hat mir den Film gezeigt und der war sooooo trashig gut – im allerallerbesten Sinne, dass ich mir von ihm auch gleich die Reihe ausgeliehen habe. Und was muss ich sagen: GENIAL! Die Idee ist so klasse, die Helden grandios! Ich liebe Rose und ihren Humor einfach, ihre schlagkräftige Art und ihr taffes Auftreten. Dimitri natürlich – oho ^^ !!! Auch die Charaktere, die ind er Reihe dann weiter dazukommen, muss man einfach gerne haben!In der Mitte hatte es so seine Längen, aber durch das Gesamtpaket wurde das dann wieder wett gemacht.Wer Vampire mal auf andere Weise kennenlernen will, für den ist Vampire Academy das fehlende Puzzleteil. Und den Film dazu nicht vergessen!

    I read the series in 2 days because it was, well, gripping! There are many clichés - the dark, brooding, stronger-than-everyone else, honorable heartthrob, the volcanic heroine, and goddess save us: High School - many shortcuts and things I would probably have found highly illogical if I hadn't been reading so quickly, as well as somewhat annoying world foundations/rules; 'good' vampires who wield magic vs 'bad' vampires who are, well, VAMPIRES? The 'reasons' the heroes cannot ever ever be together (a 7 year difference? Puh-lease!) A monarch for all vampires who OF COURSE settled in the US. The dichotomy between feisty dark heroine and blonde princess sidekick. 'Alchemists' who are all about vampires but hate them?...However, many things were also completely unexpected in a very good way. Rose's relationship with her parents (not gooey or sirupy). The enforced prevalence of Russian/Romanian names and culture. Rose going to Russia and her bittersweet interactions with Dimitri's family as well as ways to find closure. What happens when Dimitri finally captures her (which i found very believable as a description of codependent all-encompassing 'love'). Lissa's unexpected political shrewdness. The ragtag group that forms around Rose. The way she messes up with men. The way some characters, while 'bad', also have undeniable qualities (Victor Dashkov) - yes, ambiguity; Daniella Ivashkov. Fear during in all-out attack. A former bully changes for the better - believably. The way that unexamined prejudice can get busted...What carries the whole thing is Rose's vitality, undeniably. If I sat down to dissect the books, I would probably groan and eye-roll a lot from all the unbelievability, but as it is, I thoroughly enjoyed Richelle Mead's romp and I have no desire to mar my enjoyment. Yep, it's been good.

    Um, WOW. This book series was FREAKING amazing. I loved it so much, and Ive read the whole series cover-to-cover four times.Good Points:~Adrian. I really don't think that needs elaborating. Admit it. We all want one.~The storyline. This was so well-thought out and unique. It really was one-of-a-kind. No cliche love stories<3~Action. It had some kick-ass fighting scenes that rivalled that of violent books. It was fast-paced, descriptive and amazing.~Lissa. She's an amazing best friend, just like my own<3~Rose. She really is the most amazing protagonist ever! I mean, she is smart, sassy, strong and capable. She is a fantastic heroine and she had all the right things.Flaws:~Dimitri Belikov. He was NOT my idea of a hero, I'm afraid to say. Please don't hurt me!!!! Nothing about a leather duster and long black hair in a ponytail and a Russian accent excites me. I get that he's hot, but I like a man with short, neat hair. And I have nothing against Russian accents, it just... didn't have the desired effect on me. I was wishing the whole time she was with Adrian, despite the unmissable chemistry between Rose and Dimitri.~Sometimes the dhampir thing got confusing, and I needed to skip back to the beginning of the first book to try and get the rules straight. It was kinda confusing figuring out the rules for Moroi, Strigoi and Dhampirs.~Christian. I don't know what it is, but something always seemed off with Christian and Lissa.But still a great, book, highly recommended

    I was a little late to the show when it came the Vampire Academy Series, I purchased a box set and spread out the Rose and Dimitri goodness for about a year. I have to admit that it was the film adaptation that inspired me to pick up this collection of books. The tongue-in-cheek witty one liners and kick-ass heroine had me sold instantly.The film didn’t get that much praise, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved the silliness and mythology of the world, though it was easy to see where it failed. There is so much information in every book in this series, that the movie could not include it all in order to help drive the plot forward. I also did not get the chemistry from the couple on screen that I did in the novels.Richelle Mead is a master of plot. The novels just kept getting better the further I got into the series. My favourite being ‘Blood Promise.’ What starts as a typical smart-mouthed teen, Rose really develops into a selfless warrior.I did want a little more from the end of the series though; there were many questions I did not get answers to, but I’m wondering if it will get explored further in the Bloodlines series.An attractive boxed set that gave me many, many hours of fun entertainment and solidified Rose as one of my favourite heroines. Glad to have it in my library collection.

    I loved Buffy when I was young, and even now (when I am OLD, 42!) I enjoy YA novels and still really like vampire reads. This was a little different than others I've been familiar with (a complete vampire society, different types of vampires) but I really liked it.The first book was actually the most difficult to get into. It had a very abrupt start and was a little hard to understand until it explained some things later on. All the remaining books did have quite a bit of repetition (which would be helpful to a reader who had a long wait between books, or was reading a middle one as a stand alone ... but reading them back to back, it was rather annoying!) All the books would start a little slow, then build to an action packed climax. Here on this family account, I'm trying to review things from a PARENT perspective. I have 5 boys, I know none of them are going to read this series! If I had girls ... hmmmm, I'm not positive I would recommend it. Throughout the series, there is some sex and language (f word, not a LOT, but a here and there, a little more as the series progresses).

    This is arguably my favorite book series. The first half of the series, which takes place so heavily in a high-school setting, portrays teenagers in their every-day interactions so well, even though the teens in this book aren't even human. Richelle Mead never failed to make me laugh, smile, cry, or curse. The story itself is spellbinding from start to finish and anyone who can stand the vampire genre should definitely give it a shot - especially because the mythological material dealt with is so different from other vampire legends.

    Delightful beach reading. The fourth and fifth books seemed to get bogged down in its own angst, but 1-3 and 6 were incredibly enjoyable. Read the series in a week, then made the mistake of paying to see the movie. Stick to the pages on this one.

    I remember reading this series in high school. :) I mostly really liked this series, with the exception of my strong dislike for Adrian (who appears in book 2, and becomes a major character). I really like Rose as a protagonist. She’s strong, but she’s also realistic. She’s not perfect, she’s impulsive, she makes mistakes, and usually gets chastised for them. She’s also sort of the underdog, and even though she’s not afraid to speak her mind, she isn’t mean or bitchy. She treats people with respect so long as they treat her with it. Which is saying something for her world, because her world is very hierarchical with dhampirs like her (half-vampires, basically) being treated as less than Moroi (full-blooded vampires). I believe this is spawned from Romanian and Russian mythology of vampires. But Rose doesn’t buy into any of that, she treats pretty much everyone as equals.I didn’t so much like Lissa, or her friendship with Rose. I thought it was a bit unhealthy, with how unequal it was and how Lissa was too dependent on Rose, and not really caring about Rose’s own needs. I did however, like Rose’s relationship with Dimitri. Not just as lovers, but as two people who can relate to each other a lot more, who started out in the same area in life. They started as acquaintances and friends, and blossomed from there. They learned and grew from one another. Rose learned to be calmer and less impulsive; Dimitri learned to be more chill and not super serious all the time. I also love Rose’s friendships with Eddie, Mason, and the surprising friendship she ends up having with (view spoiler)[Mia (hide spoiler)] sometime after book one. That to me was a much more fulfilling friendship than with Lissa. Other characters I liked were Rose’s father, Dimitri’s family, Christian, Jillian, Sidney, and Ambrose. He was a very minor character, but I liked the little bit that we saw of him.The writing and pacing were really well-done too. I liked Rose’s voice a lot as narration. She had just the right amount of sarcasm and humor, without making it annoying or cringy. She had a very clear, strong voice that was her own, the descriptions were well-done, and all the events were spread out nice and evenly among the six books. Each book ended at a good place that would make me want to continue on to the next book. They weren’t all necessarily cliffhangers, though some were. Each book had the right amount of action, suspense, and plot development.I’m aware that there is a spin-off series, but I don’t know if I’ll be reading that anytime soon. I liked how this series ended, and am satisfied with it. (Plus, Adrian’s in the spin-off apparently).Don’t be fooled by the title. There was a point where I thought I wouldn’t like the series, because Vampire Academy isn’t exactly the best title. But, it is actually a very decent series, especially in the YA vampire genre.

    3.5/5Tengo que admitir que los primeros libros me aburrieron un poco, pero conforme la trama se va desarrollando me fue gustando mucho más. A pesar de que el tema vampiros está muy trillado, la autora crea un ambiente e historia original, ¡incluso varias especies de vampiros! No aparecen otras criaturas como licántropos ni nada por el estilo y en ese sentido me ha gustado que rompa con los clichés. Para mí el mejor libro fue el quinto: más intriga, acción, final inesperado, etc. No le doy 4 estrellas por algunos personajes, no por su desarrollo o plasmación, sino por opinión personal de sus formas de ser:Lissa - aburrida, pasiva, necesita espabilar con urgencia. Menos mal que al final lo hace. Rose - llega un punto en el que, a pesar de ser la protagonista, me cae mal. Solo existe ella y su ego. En mi opinión un personaje egoísta que no duda en utilizar a los demás para conseguir lo que quiere y se propone, incluso si implica perder amistades o muertes. Cero empatía. Adrian - un personaje al que no se le hace justicia. Problemas personales, "dominado" por su habilidad, utilizado por la gente, y aun así, no recibe un final justo o feliz, y creo que sus acciones e importancia en la trama se lo merecía. Quizás por eso recibe su propia saga: The Bloodlines series.

    I first picked up this series when it was recommended to me by a friend. At the time, it was around all the Twilight hype, so I was a touch hesitant about reading another paranormal book. Thankfully, I read it and have not looked back since! The characters are brilliant, the storylines well constructed and the plot is fascinating. What really struck me was that even though Rose and Dimitri fall in love, the romance isn't necessarily front and centre. Mead's emphasis on the love between friends and indeed the discovery of the 'true' meaning of friendship is what makes this series so worthwhile. It shows how people can own their flaws and even surpass them by using their strengths.I also love the fact that the entire series had the potential to embody a whole host of cliches, but Mead navigates her way around them beautifully. Refreshing, engaging, and fun! Congratulations

    I loved the series so much. I red the 6 books into 2 weeks. I was falling asleep at 4 a.m. while reading. Full of action, mystery and love. I don't think I will ever find a series as good as this one. I finished and I want to reread it again, like NOW. The characters are well developped, and who don't fall in love with Dimitri afterall? and wow, the temper of Rosemary, it's just awesome. Being shadow-kissed was not easy for her, but how captivating...
