Book Review - anything by Richelle Mead

I love, love all books by Richelle Mead!

She never fails to pull you into her books and the lives and loves of her characters.

All her main men make you swoon and you want to be every one of her main female characters.
Plus anything with a little bit of magic or has a supernatural sway makes a story so much more fun.

Succubus series by Richelle Mead

 This series is about a pretty girl working in a bookstore and falling for an author, except she is also a succubus for the devil. Bought over to the dark side centuries ago, Georgina Kincaid has learnt to live with her unusual job-on-this-side. She and her friends, bar one angel and the guys from her day job at the bookstore, work for the devil but they are so much fun, it doesn't matter! 
These books are easy reads, with great characters and storylines. 

Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead

The Vampire Academy series contain 7 books with the Bloodlines series following on from that as a spin off series.
The academy is for Moroi and Dhampirs. Dhampirs are Moiri Guardians who are born of a human and vampire and Moroi are pure blood vampires, though not immortal as we usually find in most stories.
Lissa, a Moroi, and her best friend, Rose, a Dhampir, return to the academy after being on the run for 2 years.
The books follow their lives at school, their bond with each other as well as with other students and teachers (namely Dimitri, Rose’s tutor and crush).
They also have to contend with the bad guys, Strigoi. Strigoi are vampires who are immortal and want to kill pretty much everyone.

The Bloodlines series follows a girl called Sydney who is human and part of a group called The Alchemists. Their job is to ensure humans don’t know the Moroi, Dhampirs and Strigoi exist.

Richelle Mead draws you into every story she writes, the characters become best friends, when their hearts break, so does yours.
These books are well recommended if you love romance, fantasy and are a lover of serials. You won’t be able to think about reading anything else whilst working your way through these books and now I think I must go back and read them again-oh well, that’s another month lost in Rose, Lissa and Sydney’s world. Please don’t bother calling me, I won’t answer! I’ll be in the hammock!

The Vampire Academy series is being made into a movie which is due for releases in 2015, much to my husband's disappointment as he knows he'll be dragged there, just like he was to the Twilight movies, Star Trek and Doctor Who!

I have yet to read her Dark Swan series but I have added the first book to my 25 books to read before July list.
She also has a new adult fantasy series, Age of X Series, the first of which is coming out in June and is called 'Gameboard of the Gods' and is also added to the above list.
