Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Mead's vampire lore makes excellent fodder for graphic-novel adaptation: the kids at the vampire academy are rich and stylish, so we definitely want to see those clothes; some of them are mean but others are sarcastic, so when all those speeches are boiled down to a few balloons and lots of body English, cheering for your idea of the right side is more fun. The story line a contemporary teenage vampire princess and her guardian, a more buxom friend, are returned to their boarding school (St. Vladimir's Academy), where they must face saving the princess from harm without sacrificing the guardian's life or their friendship unfolds coherently and at an even pace. The various boy toys none of whom should be dismissed as powerless playthings are dashing in their behavior as well as their looks. The full-color, glossy panels show off an entire catalog of reds, textures, glinting teeth, and dark recesses of the old school. A fun read even for the vampire weary.--Goldsmith, Francisca Copyright 2010 Booklist"
