    Acest roman grafic aproape că m-a făcut să plâng, la fel ca și finalul volumul trei din Academia Vampirilor, citit în urmă cu ceva ani. Deși nu sunt mare fană a desenelor propriu-zise, scenele dintre Rose și Dimitri au fost pe măsura așteptărilor, ba chiar și cele dintre Rose și Adrian, preferatul meu. Am ales să parcurg aceste benzi desenate pentru a-mi reîmprospăta memoria cu privire la una dintre seriile mele preferate din toate timpurile și mă bucur enorm că am făcut acest lucru.

Deși nu sunt mare fană a desenelor propriu-zise, scenele dintre Rose și Dimitri au fost pe măsura așteptărilor, ba chiar și cele dintre Rose și Adrian, preferatul meu. Am ales să parcurg aceste benzi desenate pentru a-mi reîmprospăta memoria cu privire la una dintre seriile mele preferate din toate timpurile și mă bucur enorm că am făcut acest lucru. Se pare că pasiunea mea a rămas la locul ei și mai mult decât atât, am remarcat toate trimiterile culturale pe care autoarea le-a inclus, lucru care nu poate decât să mă bucure: România și Rusia sunt în topul acestor referințe, ceea ce mă face să mă simt foarte mândră. Nu cred să mai existe alte cărți contemporane la fel de populare, cu atâtea cuvinte în română (ex.: mână, vrăjitoare). De la Dracula încoace, Richelle Mead ar putea fi singura care ne-a făcut o onoare atât de mare prin arta ei. Lissa nu arată nici în benzile desenate, nici în filmul făcut după serie așa cum mi-aș fi imaginat eu; în ambele cazuri mi s-a părut mult prea ștearsă față de cum este ea portretizată în cărți. Un alt comentariu legat de acest volum este faptul că mi-aș fi dorit să fie mai lung, să nu sară așa de repede de la o scenă la alta, deși nu este o critică majoră pentru că sunt conștientă că acesta este rolul unei benzi desenate. Totuși, presupun că elementele cele mai importante au fost cuprinse cu brio între cele 160 de pagini care mi-au trecut prin mâini mult mai repede decât m-aș fi așteptat. Finalul și în special, ultima replică a lui Rose, sunt foarte sfâșietoare pentru romantica incurabilă din mine. Realizez că m-am îndrăgostit de această serie și datorită diversității sale, de la examinarea anumitor tulburări mintale precum depresia, la iubirea interzisă dintre un elev și un profesor, prietenia platonică și sinceră, diferențele dintre clasele sociale, de vârstă, rang și lista poate continua. Nu e doar o altă serie despre vampiri, acesta nu este laitmotivul său. Ce face totul și mai tulburător este faptul că știu deja continuarea poveștii iar acest lucru mă face să regret că nu s-au mai făcut și celelalte romane grafice după acesta. O să continui cât de curând să explorez acest univers pentru că se pare că intuiția mea a funcționat corect atunci când am pătruns în el prima dată; se prea poate ca Academia Vampirilor să rămână seria mea preferată. Recomand cu căldură și romanul grafic pentru cine vrea să retrăiască experiența anterioară.

    Vampire Academy the Graphic Novel is beautiful and fun. The graphic novel follows the third book of the Vampire Academy series and is just as breathtaking as the book. I enjoyed this book as much as I did with the first two and now I am dying for the fourth to come out.

If Zoey Deutch and Lucy Fry weren’t the Rose and Lissa you expected, the graphic novel is the next best thing – provided you’ve read the novels already. The VA graphic novel illustrations are spot on with accurate depictions of the characters as per the novel’s description. Rose is curvy, sexy and fiesty, and Lissa is regal, beautiful and demure. Illustrations are delivered in a bright, colourful format with a serious art style that isn’t too cartoony. If you haven’t read the series yet, you’d find the graphic novels to be difficult to follow without reading Rose’s perspective on the happenings of St Vladimir Academy. The selection of dialogue was more focused on moving the plot along instead of offering the characters’ thoughts, so it may seem to jump around quite a bit. Much has been truncated in this graphic novel, which seems to be delivered more as a fan service than attracting new readers to the series. It’s been a few years since I read this series but I remember Shadow Kiss to be the most dramatic of the lot, and the graphic novel bought back the key moments perfectly. Much of what the characters are experiencing is delivered well through their facial expressions, actions and background images, and surprisingly even that hot bedroom scene with our favourite couple is dedicated to a full colour page. I did have trouble remember who some of the side characters were though, especially when they popped up without an introduction and were only given brief dialogues. It’s clear the writer of the novel expects the reader to have followed the graphic novels from the start. The VA graphic novels are the perfect way to experience an illustrated version of the series with accurate depictions of the characters and their actions. The art style and dialogue captures the mood of VA perfectly, a witty vampire story set in an Academy with a fiesty dhampir at its core. Although slightly difficult to follow, it’s worth seeing the scenes and characters come to life in this beautiful format. Thank you to Penguin Australia for sending me this graphic novel in exchange for an honest review.

    So I enjoyed this graphic novel as well, even though I felt like it was bit more rushed compared to the others, I still enjoyed it. Of course the illustrations are great, and I feel like the colors were just so much more vibrant than the other two. They did at least catch the big parts in Shadow Kiss, it's funny I forgot about a couple parts until reading this and I felt like I just refreshed my memory of the whole book. I do hope they make the 4th one, I'm very interested to see how it turns out!

    Yet another great graphic novel adaptation by Leigh Dragoon and Emma Vieceli. In this installment we learn a little bit more about Rose's shadow kissed condition and what that means for her.

I love the work that these two ladies do for Richelle Mead's VA series. Sure, takes a lot out of each book in order to fit it into one graphic novel, but she keeps the heart of the story intact. Not only that, but she still adds some little quirky parts that are in the story. For instance, she included the scene where Dimitri makes hot cocoa for Rose and as he's making it, he explains how using two packets is the secret to delicious hot cocoa. That's something that could have been easily over-looked. I mean, it's not like Rose uses hot cocoa to save the day or anything. However, that was one of those vulnerable moments from Dimitri that always stuck out when reading Shadow Kiss. Like I've said before, you don't have to read the series in order to read the graphic novels. We get a prologue at the beginning describing the who's who of players and what's going on. So, if you are more of a graphic novel person and don't really want to read the series itself, you don't have to. I think that's one thing that I love about this graphic novel series. It's not dependent on you having read the original series. It can hold it's own. One of the things that stuck out to me the most was probably the cave scene at the end. I always had such a hard time envisioning it in the novel. So, it was great seeing it illustrated. I think with seeing it illustrated it made it that much more suspenseful. I can not give this graphic novel series more praise. Leigh Dragoon and Emma Vieceli have taken one of my favorite series and turned it into a graphic novel. A successful graphic novel at that. I really hope the publisher decides to publish the next graphic novel. The last I heard they were waiting to see how the sales from this one did before they approved the next one. This girl will be crossing her fingers. I kind of want to see how Emma Vieceli pulls off the new Dimitri.

    It's alright,i feel they missed a lot out, which lead to everything feeling a bit too quick without much background, nothing special, wish they'd done it more justice to the book, especially with how emotional it is at times. Yet to find the second graphic novel in a store, I hope they play out the events in Spokane effectively...

    Reading this brought me back to when I first read this series! Agh the feels! This series will always be close to my heart and this was my favorite one in the series, so I'm glad I finally picked up the graphic novel. I remember this book destroying me when I read it years ago haha! I wish they would've continued with the rest in graphic novels but I'm glad we got at least three!

    I LOVE IT. The drawings of the scenes was exactly how I pictured it when I read the third book. Although there was many scenes I missed in the graphic novel that was cuted out and some quotes was changed. But I loved it anyway.......I really enjoyed it. I wish they made a Graphic novel to the rest of the books....I wish they do in the future.😍😍😍

    Not much new I can say about this since I've already reviewed this as a book. For me, Shadow Kiss was where the series finally picked up. I'm still not a fan of either Rose or Lissa, Vampire Academy has always been a series for me that's carried by it's supporting characters. With that being said, the graphic novel was extremely easy to get through and easy to read.

With that being said, the graphic novel was extremely easy to get through and easy to read. The story works well for the visual telling, however, I feel that the author weighs heavily on people having read the books before - which, let's be truthful, is probably the case. The graphic novels focus more on the action and leaves out a lot of the character development. The artwork itself is okay - nothing amazing but it works. I'm just finally glad to have a visual for Adrian. :)

    Όπως ήρθαν τα πράγματα, και αφού τα novels δεν πήγαν καλά σε πωλήσεις με αποτέλεσμα να "κοπούν", αυτό είναι το τελευταίο τεύχος που φτάνει στα χέρια μας και αντικειμενικά, το καλύτερο όλων. Και η ίδια η ιστορία είναι πλέον πολύ πιο ενδιαφέρουσα, αλλά και το σχέδιο μοιάζει αρκετά βελτιωμένο σε ορισμένα μικρά, λεπτά σημεία, που ίσως να μην μας άρεσαν και τόσο πολύ στα προηγούμενα. Βέβαια, η αυλαία πέφτει άδοξα, αλλά αυτά συμβαίνουν...

    I love this this one, it was more about Rose and Dimitri, my OTP of this series! Their relationship grew a lot and I didn’t want the book to end. But this graphic went to fast. I want to learn more about these character. Which is why I can’t wait to read the novels. Hoping there’s more in the books. I couldn’t stop reading or looking at the pages. This plot had a lot in it but was still easy to follow. The ending. I’m not even…. I can’t is. Oh, Dimitri… I need to find out what happens next!

    This was just boring as hell. I rushed through it, only stopping to look at any pictures of Christian. He was the highlight of this story. These graphic novels fail to capture to feeling I had while reading the VA novels. It's a water downed version and the drawing isn't very good either. I totally understand why there's a hold to complete the fourth novel. With the story only getting better and more intense with each book, I'd hate to read these comics and feel underwhelmed yet again.

    My heart is in pieces again. I will never forget that cliffhanger and how much I sobbed when I first read it. Also, I really like the cover. I feel as though it truly represents how Rose & Dimitri felt for each other before the attack. My heart is in pieces again.
