Review: Vampire Academy - The Ultimate Guide (2012)

Are you a fan of the popular young adult Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series? Vampire Academy: The Ultimate Guide, by Michelle Rowen with Richelle Mead, is available to buy online or at your local bookstore. Here is a summary of the book below:

Sink your teeth into the perfect holiday gift and must-have collector's item for every fan of Richelle Mead's totally addicting Vampire Academy series.

Discover the history of St. Vladimir's Academy, explore the dark psychology behind Rose and Lissa's spirit bond, and find out even more illicit secrets about Moroi society. This ultimate guide will feature everything readers want and need to go even deeper into the world of Vampire Academy, Frostbite, Shadow Kiss, Blood Promise, Spirit Bound, and Last Sacrifice...every heartache, every betrayal, every sacrifice, and so much more!

This Official Ultimate Guide (305 pages) is the must-have addition to any Vampire Academy collection. Learn everything you ever wanted to know about the totally addictive world Richelle Mead has created:

  • Find out the real history of St. Vladimir’s Academy
  • Explore the dark psychology behind Rose and Lissa’s unusual friendship
  • Discover even more illicit secrets about Rose and Dimitri
  • Quiz yourself to find out how much you really know about Vampire Academy

From what I skimmed, each chapter is broken down by each book (six in total) with summaries, explanation of quotes and story arcs, pop quizzes for readers, and writing confessions by Mead. There is also a section dedicated to discussing the background history of each major character in the series. It also includes photos of Richelle Mead at book signings and a glossary of common terms in the series.

I recently saw it on the bookshelf at Barnes and Noble. Although I have not read the book in great detail, I think any fan would like this informative book as a collector's item. You may think you know everything about the Vampire Academy world, but Rowen and Mead will definitely surprise you with things you didn't know.
