St. Vladimir's Academy isn't just any boarding school - it's a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They've been on the run, but now they're being dragged back to St. Vladimir's - the very place where they're most in danger.

Its one of my favorites and I love to listen and re-listen to this book. The characters are funny, the world is interesting, and who doesn't love a little romance with a dreamy russian mentor.

Seriously, if you love the show then this isn't the book for you. The characters in the show are amalgamations of characters in the book. the characters in the show are more likeable and tolerable.

On a continent ruled by three empires, some are born with a "witchery", a magical skill that sets them apart from others. In the Witchlands, there are almost as many types of magic as there are ways to get in trouble - as two desperate young women know all too well. Safiya is a Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lie. It's a powerful magic that many would kill to have on their side, especially among the nobility to which Safi was born. So Safi must keep her gift hidden, lest she be used as a pawn in the struggle between empires.

I loved the story, but the voice actor's accents weren't my favorite. It felt like an awkward combination of middle eastern and Russian. It also bugged me that the narrator's voice is so "normal" sounding compared to everyone else's accents. I wish she either always had the accent or never did. The flip flipping was a little distracting.

As for the story itself, it was wonderfully written and draws you in. It drops you into the world and you learn more as the story develops. I can't wait to learn more about the magic of the world and to meet other types of witches. I literally just finished that book and I'm itching for more. I need it! This will definitely be a read again for me, but maybe with a physical copy. I think I'll enjoy it more that way.
