Vampire Academy

Synopsis: Rose Hathaway is a dhampir, half-vampire and half-human, who is training to be a guardian at St Vladimir's Academy along with many others like her. There are good and bad vampires in their world: Moroi, who co-exist peacefully among the humans and only take blood from donors, and also possess the ability to control one of the four elements - water, earth, fire or air; and Strigoi, blood-sucking, evil vampires who drink to kill. Rose and other dhampir guardians are trained to protect Moroi and kill Strigoi throughout their education. Along with her best friend, Princess Vasilisa Dragomir, a Moroi and the last of her line, with whom she has a nigh unbreakable bond, Rose must run away from St Vladimir's, in order to protect Lissa from those who wish to harm the princess and use her for their own means.

Anyone there?

Where is everyone?

- Let's go!

- Lissa!

Move, move!

Stay in the car.


I've got this one. Stay here.

What's going on out there?

Stay here.


Welcome back, Dimitri.

And then there's group number

the bad vampires, the Strigoi.

Evil bloodsuckers

that only come out at night

and can only be killed

by a silver stake.

It takes five of our best

to kill one of their worst.

If you're lucky,

they'll just rip you apart,

but they can also turn you

into one of them.

Strigoi were the true monsters

of our nightmares.

For all the stories, the warnings,

and the training films,

I had never seen one up close.

I told you to stay in the car.

We're clear.

And there it was.

Goodbye, Facebook.

Goodbye, iPhone 5.

Hello, St. Vladimir's.

It is not just another school.

It's another universe.

Moroi and Dhampir students

come from all over the world

to study history, science, math,

and all the other boring stuff,

but around fourth period,

we Dhampir go off and learn fun new ways

to maim and kill,

while, for the Moroi, it's magic time.

Water, earth, fire, air.

You see, it's not just their diet

that makes the Moroi special,

and some are more special than others.

Our secret society

has its own government

that alternates leaders

from 12 royal families.

That's Queen Tatiana up top,

but my girl Lissa is in the mix.

You can see why the princess leaving

the academy was such a scandal,

and me helping her was worse.

Damn, back to Vampire Academy.

Please don't say Vampire Academy.

You know how I feel about the "V" word.


It's not like the drinking of

blood is your main source of sustenance.

No, wait, that's exactly what it is.

They just had to bring us back

in the middle of the night.

So not cool... 1:00 a.m.,
