Welcome to St Vladimir's Academy where blood runs thicker than water and school can be murder. Rose and Lissa are best friends at St Vladimir's hidden boarding school for vampires. As well as the usual trials -- confusing boys, bitchy girls and blood-sucking teachers -- someone, or something, is out to get them.

Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, half human-half vampire, a guardian of the Moroi, peaceful, mortal vampires living discreetly within our world. Her calling is to protect the Moroi from bloodthirsty, immortal Vampires, the Strigoi.

In the process of learning how to defeat Strigoi at St. Vladimir's Academy, Rose finds herself caught in a forbidden romance with her instructor, Dimitri Belikov, while having an unbreakable psychic bond with her Moroi best friend, Vasilisa "Lissa" Dragomir.
