I couldn't stop listening. This is not your normal Young Adult Novel and I'm no where near a young adult. I am so glad I downloaded this book. It was a refreshing surprise. I couldn't remove my headphones and I immediately went to download the second book.
Vampire Academy is a great read. However, parents should be aware of the level of information given out in the book. Topics are spoken of through a fantasy world of Vampire, and Morey and such, but the parallel to taboo topics, such as drugs, sex and cutting, are the situations these characters find themselves. Even the topic of religion is discussed in terms of to believe or not to believe. So if you don't plan on speaking to your children about drug use, cutting, sex, or the existance of a divine being, you may not want them to read this particular book. However, if you are ready to have those discussions with your children, which you have to do at some point anyway, the novel hits on them directly. There are also your basic everyday teen situations that deal with gossip, clicks, and the "rumormill"; not to mention the use of profanity. Of course these are topics and situations that teens deal with daily, and will not be avoided as they journey into the real world. It's just a matter of timing and whether or not your child is ready to hear and deal with the content.
i die a thousand life
So far this book its on top of my list, even though this is teen read
The narator make it better, always love a rushian accent.
I really can see all the character come to live, the marathon is good, very good instensif.
Yes of course
Audio book rules!
This is like Gossip Girl with vampires. Teenagers being mean to each other for stupid shallow reasons. The story is predictable and overblown. The main characters are annoying. The world building is overly complicated and confusing. And I found myself correcting the writing out loud while I listened.
People have said this is the weakest of the series and, though I admit to being intrigued by the love interest, that is probably not enough motivation to suffer through another book.
Really wish Audible had a return policy, this was the first book I did not finish. It was Harry Potter with Vampires. I think I will stick with the Black Dagger Brotherhood Series!
This would have been a much better story if the two main charters were Lesbians. I thought it was a very lacking story and reminded me of True Blood. I can think of a tone of much better Vampire stories then this one. I don't really wanna hear a story about a Per-miscues Teenager that can't decide which Boyfriend to pick when there are bigger problems going on in the story. The Author doesn't do a good job at trying to have the reader really capture the characters. You don't even get to know the charterers till later cause when it starts you are in the middle of a story that has already started. I don't like that. Thumbs down for this one sorry...
This book is surprisingly good! It is a mix between Hogwarts, vampires and gossip girl. I do agree that is in the frontier between teenagers and adults, but it is still a great read. It is full of action, mystery and forbidden romance. Plus It is very hard not to love the main character, Rose. I highly recommend it! Not a typical vampire novel.
