Richelle Mead celebrates 10 years of Vampire Academy with an exclusive, never-before-seen collection of stories that sheds new light on the world and its players:

  • » The Turn and the Flame takes a deeper look into the dark stain on the Ozera dynasty...
  • » Hello My Name is Rose Hathaway tracks the shenanigans that ensue when Rose and Dimitri become unlikely teammates in a high-stakes scavenger hunt...
  • » The Meeting gives us a glimpse of Rose Hathaway through Dimitri's eyes...
  • » From the Journal of Vasilisa Dragomir unearths the princess's private thoughts from a transformative period of her life...

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...

Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy's ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi--the world's fiercest and most dangerous vampires--make Lissa one of them forever.

So here's the kind of embarrassing truth - I've never read this series. Way back in the day when this series came out, just after I'd graduated from high school, I had never even heard of young adult fiction! (My library sucked.) I WISH I had known about Vampire Academy! It was around the same time this series was being published that I was devouring adult vampire romance novels. I'm so disappointed I didn't know about this!

As a 28 year old adult I read YA almost exclusively, although I admit that I've never gone back to read this one. But have you seen thave cover? I've heard so many amazing things! Badass heroines? Swoon-worthy romance? I am absolutely committing to finally reading Vampire Academy. And now, with all the extras being included for the anniversary edition, how can I say no?

Have you read this series? Did you love it? Let me know in the comments!
