The is undeniably something fundamentally romantic about vampires. They are at the same time powerful and dangerous, yet tragic figures. Many of the best recent romantic books have been based on vampires.
There several different kinds of romantic vampire novels, each of which appeal to a different kind of reader. You will find several of the best ones in our top 10 vampire romance books list.
What makes Vampire Academy different and in my opinion better than the other teen vampire books, is that it's set in a world that is much more real and gritty. Creating this spectacular backdrop is a testament to Richelle Mead skill as a writer.
In Vampire Academy two school going vampires: Rose and Lissa must master their abilities. Only then will they be able to protect themselves from a violent clan of Strigoi vampires.
I recommend getting the box set. The books are so compelling you will end up wanting them all.
