Vampire Academy: The Graphic Novel by Richelle Mead

Vampire Academy: The Graphic Novel by Richelle Mead

January 15, 2014 Reviews 1 ★★★★★

I love graphic novels: I think they're beautiful and give us a lovely visual adaptation of a novel that's different from a movie. The first Vampire Academy graphic novel tells introduces Rose and Lissa perfectly, and accurately tells the story of the first book. Rose is a damphir - half vampire (Moroi) and half human. She's training to become a Guardian one day for her best friend Lissa, who is a Moroi princess. They had to leave their school because Lissa felt threatened, but have recently been tracked down by fully-trained Guardians, including Dmitri Belikov, who volunteers to train Rose...

I think my feelings are broken. What a sequel! I loved Unspoken so much I had very high expectations from its sequel. I held off on reading it for so long because of this – I was really scared I wouldn’t like Untold. But I loved it, it’s amazing, and…

Knowing how much heartache the third book of the Vampire Academy books caused – especially, how painful the ending was – I hope I can be forgiven for putting off The Indigo Spell for as long as I did. I wanted to have The Fiery Heart in my hands in…

Wicked Kiss by Michelle Rowen

Wicked Kiss by Michelle Rowen

November 14, 2013 Reviews 0

I am impressed at how seamlessly Rowen tells this story, especially considering that it has been so long since I read Dark Kiss. I didn’t really remember any characters except for Samantha, Bishop and Kraven, and I only recalled the barest details of the plot. The author skillfully re-oriented me…

Skulk by Rosie Best

King Hall by Scarlett Dawn

King Hall by Scarlett Dawn

October 4, 2013 Reviews 0

I strongly believe the first scene of a novel, the first paragraph, hey, even the first words, absolutely set the tone for the rest of the book. So you can imagine what I was thinking when the first words of King Hall were “Sex Education” and the first scene was…
