“Only a true best friend can protect you from your immortal enemies!”
In this book there are three different types of Vampires: the Moroi, the royals; the Damphir, half-human half-vampires who are trained to protect the Moroi; and the Strigoi, an immortal bunch of Vampires that kill innocents every day. Lissa Dragomir, a Moroi princess, is the last of her family’s blood line, making her extremely susceptible to the cravings of the Strigoi, who are hell-bent on killing her. Rose Hathaway, Lissa’s best friend, is a Damphir who is just as hell-bent on protecting her. Both girls, who escaped St. Vladamir’s Academy just two years prior, have been caught and dragged back where their world becomes even more dangerous – inside the school gates. I love this book, and if you love Twilight you will love this series as well.
