5.vampire academy by richelle mead
I’m going to do everyone a favor and break down the VA lingo before I give a summary. A vampire is, well, a vampire, but they can wield magical abilities, each specific to the vampire. A Dhampir is half-human, half-vampire; they do not have magic, but they are physically strong, much stronger than humans or vampires and are born to protect vampires. The Strigoi are BAD vampires, they feed to kill, and are not born, but made (that is explained later). In a nutshell, Rose (Dhampir) and Lissa (vampire) ran away from the infamous Vampire Academy (where you learn all things Vampire and Dhampir), in fear for Lissa’s safety. But they have now been forced to return. Someone is after Lissa, and it is up to Rose to protect her while simultaneously dealing with high-school BS; and of course, their love lives, which are becoming more and more complicated.
