I am a somewhat new comer to the Vampire Academy fandom; I picked up the first book in January this year and quickly finished the series in July. I loved the first book, I found it fun, enjoyed the action and Rose's sassy, "take no prisoners" attitude and thought Richelle Mead's world of moroi, dhampir and strigoi to be an interesting addition to the vampire genre. That being said although my love for the series went up or down depending on which book I was reading as a long fan of graphic novels I was looking forward to reading this adaptation and seeing how all the characters looked as well as the action scenes.

It was disappointing to say the least; in short the adaption from novel to graphic novel was not a smooth one. As a fan I don’t know how obvious the issues I spotted are to someone who hasn’t read the book but to me I found the plot to be rushed and the transitions choppy. There was little to no character and plot development and therefore this book had the unfortunate impression of an elephant trying to fit into a Fiat. The only good things was that the art looks a lot better in person than it does on screen and I liked most of the artist’s interpretation of the characters. The action scenes however could have fared better with more use of panels because at times it felt as if I was skipping over point “B” when moving from “A” to “C”.

In conclusion, despite my lack of enthusiasm for this book I will be giving the instalment for Frost Bite a read because considering how cute Christian turned out I want to see Adrian and Frost Bite was one of my favourite books in the series. Hopefully we’ll actually get some character development so I can stat caring for the characters again.

Based on the Vampire Academy novel, Rose is presented to us in another way.

Many people find it a cop out to the Twilight graphic novel but, being able to SEE the Molnija marks and Dimitri's looks. It completely beats Twilight
