Goodreads Description:
After two years on the run, best friends Rose and Lissa are caught and returned to St. Vladimir’s Academy, a private high school for vampires and half-bloods. It’s filled with intrigue, danger—and even romance.
Enter their dark, fascinating world through a new series of 144-page full-color graphic novels. The entire first Vampire Academy novel has been adapted for book one by Leigh Dragoon and overseen by Richelle Mead, while the beautiful art of acclaimed British illustrator Emma Vieceli brings the story to life.

It's been a while since I'd read Vampire Academy. I absolutely love the series but I think my love for it has been overshadowed by just how much I love the Bloodlines series and I'm still a little pissed at Rose and her treatment of Adrian (even though I think things are going to be way better for Adrian with Sydney). But this little graphic novel reminded me of my first love of the series. It was well drawn and there was just enough of the story there to remind me what happened and how it all began. I'm curious to see the second one.
