Thursday Afternoon Haiku Moment: Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

Two years on the run
Lissa and Rose return home
Vampire boarding school

Vampire AcademyYou know the drill here
Hot boys, bitchy rivals, and
Vampire PE class

The tale? Not so fresh.
But before you haters scream
I still liked this book.

Rose is a dhampir
Half-vamp and a mental bond
With Princess Lissa

Rose in Lissa’s brain
Kind of like Dragonriders
But without tent pegs

Dimitri? Cuteness.
Christian? Emo cuteness.
Mason? Ginger. Bleh.

Vamp society
Unique, complex and detailed
Mead outdid herself

Wanted more strigoi
(and maybe just a little
More Dimitri sex)

Adults will enjoy
As well as teenage girls
My vote? Solid B.

This book can be purchased in mass market from Amazon or ebook format from the Sony Store and other etailers.

    Lord, I couldn’t disagree more with Anne McCaffrey about homosexuality. But I still love her early Pern books, Dragonflight especially. I have sometimes thought of reviewing it. Any chance that you could write a haiku review of that book? Please please pretty please?
