Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
Title; Vampire Academy, Frostbite, Shadow Kiss, Blood Promise, Spirit Bound, Last Sacrifice.
Author; Richelle Mead
Description of first book; 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.

I recommend these books and will be reading probably everything by this author.
A kind of Review; I didn't write a review for the first book in this series and so I wasn't going to write a review for any of these books...but, after finishing them all, I feel like I should say...something about them.
This isn't really a review, this post is sort of...promotional? I don't know. All I know is that I loved this series. From the beginning to the very last page.
These books made me laugh!
These books made me cry!
These books made me sigh happily!
These books made my sigh sadly!
These books are...beyond amazing!
Now, there were times when I was mad with the characters, when I was mad with the author, and the books altogether. Especially at the end of the third one...
The conclusion to these books...is...eh. Like, after everything that had gone on I was expecting something a bit...more for the end. But, there is Bloodlines, the series that ties in with this one... So, maybe that's why it ended the way it did.
Anyway, you need to read this books. Yes. Need to.
The characters are awesome.
The books are awesome.
Richelle Mead is awesome.
