I discovered the first Vampire Academy book when I went to a garage sale and looked through the books, when that one caught my eye. I’ve always loved vampire books, so I figured I would like the Vampire Academy series, and let me tell you I was right. After I finished the first book I asked for the second book for my birthday, and the other four for Christmas. Now I own all the Vampire Academy books, and I’ve read them all. When I have time I would like to reread them all again.

Vampire Academy has sold millions of copies, a lot of people loved it, and I am one of those people. This book kicked off the international number one bestselling Vampire Academy series. If you like vampires, magic, drama, romance, adventure, and action then this is the perfect book to read.
