Vampire Academy: The Ultimate Guide by Michelle Rowen (with Richelle Mead)

ATTENTION VAMPIRE ACADEMY FANS…

THE ULTIMATE GUIDE IS ALMOST HERE!!!!

Just a few more days, then all of us Rose & Dimitri, Lissa & Christian, Adrian… aahhhh, Adrian… *ahem*, fans will have access to all the facts and trivia about the books in our hot little hands. Michelle Rowan (bestselling author in her own right, and superfan of the VA series) has collected all the important facts and juicy details about the characters, the storylines, and the world of St. Vladimir’s and put them all together in one place. She’s also included memorable quotes (broken down by book), and spread throughout the guide are results from her in depth Q&A with Vampire Academy series author, Richelle Mead. This Q&A answers some of the whys and hows of the story, and offers some insight into the characters we love so much.

Michelle was kind enough to take time out of her insanely busy writing schedule to answer a few questions about the guide.

1) Obviously you have to be a big fan of the series in order to author the Ultimate Guide. What was it about the story that hooked you?

I was a huge fan of the series ever since I received an ARC of the very first book from my agent (who is also Richelle’s agent). Got to say what initially hooked me was the “forbidden” relationship between Rose and Dimitri — the chemistry between the two is incredible! Loved every minute of their roller coaster relationship! Plus, Rose was such a dynamic heroine, even when I was shaking my head at some of the crazy decisions she made, she was just so real and compelling on the page. And then later, I was hooked by Adrian! (Because he’s hot). So, the characters, the world, the story…everything drew me in and kept me turning the pages!  

2) What prompted the idea of an Ultimate Guide for the series?

I’m honestly not sure what prompted the idea in the first place — but I’m pretty sure it had A LOT to do with the extremely enthusiastic fan base this series is blessed to have. All I know is that one night last year, Richelle was in Toronto for an event and we went out for dinner. She mentioned that Razorbill was thinking about doing a Guide and I immediately said “ME WANT TO WRITE THAT!” My sincere enthusiasm for the series and for Richelle’s writing, as well as a few more connections that came together helped pave the way for my getting the chance to be a part of the Vampire Academy world!

 3) How did you get the information that is included in the guide? Did you do a Q&A with Richelle about things YOU wanted to know?

For the bulk of the Guide, I reread each of the books slowly and took copious notes on everything — characters, terms, plot, favorite quotes, etc. — then organized it into the sections I already had mapped out. There were a few things that I had to go directly to Richelle to find out — such as a couple of last names that weren’t readily available in the books themselves. She was more than happy to help me out whenever I needed a little guidance!

4) Will there be any new “story” in the Ultimate guide? Some other series guides include a novella or short story that was created specifically for it.

The Ultimate Guide is what I’d call a fun overview of the series as it was written — a journey through the world of Rose, Lissa, and their friends, and the plots, characters, relationships, terminology, tattoos, etc. While there are no new stories included, there are some awesome insights from Richelle herself about her writing process, about the characters and world, and many Q&As throughout the book with her which adds a real personal and exclusive touch to the Guide. Also, there’s plenty of fun quizzes throughout to test a reader’s knowledge about the world of Vampire Academy. And the color insert is fantastic, giving a great glimpse into the gorgeous artwork used in the VA graphic novels.

5) Is there anything you inadvertently left out of the guide you had planned to include, but realized after it was too late to add it? Here’s your chance to share, lol 🙂

Quite honestly? I think I included everything I could! If there’s something I left out, I don’t know what it could possibly be! 😉

So… can’t wait til the 22nd to get your hands on the Vampire Academy: The Ultimate Guide?? Take a shot at winning a copy, autographed by Michelle Rowen, by posting your favorite quote from any of the books in the Vampire Academy series in the comments below.

    But anyway even if it isn’t, here’s one of my favorites.

    Rose: “He has no right to threaten my boyfriends. I’m eighteen. An adult. I don’t need his help. I can threaten my boyfriends myself.”

  13. Comment by Maddy:

    “You can’t force love, I realized. It’s there or it isn’t. If it’s not there, you’ve got to be able to admit it. If it is there, you’ve got to do whatever it takes to protect the ones you love.” Rose (Frostbite)

  18. Comment by megan ortegon:

    “Love fades, mine has” dimitri to rose
    I chose this because I cried harder during this part then when I thought he was dead. So glad it wasn’t true but I will never forget it. Haven’t cried that much during any book and I had to set the book down for a week.

  19. Comment by Tina:

    “It’s not about you,okay? This time, it’s about me. Not you. All my life, Lissa …
    all my life, it’s been the same. They come first. I’ve lived my life for you. I’ve trained to be your shadow, but you know what? I want to come first. I need to take care of myself for once.I’m tired of looking out for everyone else and having to put aside what I want.Dimitri and I did that, and look what happened.He’s gone. I will never hold him again. Now I owe it to him to do this. I’m sorry if it hurts you, but it’s my choice!” Rose to Lissa ,Shadow Kiss
    I can still feel the deep impact of this quote. Vampire Academy Series is THE BEST!

    Kirova: “Guardian Belikov is the Princess Lissa’s guardian now, her sanctioned guardian.”

    Its very difficult to choose just a few or one favorite quote, but this one is definitely in my top 5.

    (And if there is a chance of me winning, notification by email would be great. Thank you.)

  34. Comment by Jess:

    Amazing series! Surprisingly, one of my MANY favorite quotes comes from none other than Victor Dashkov (should I spoiler-tag this? Ah, well, SPOILERS!!):

    Victor: Vasilisa is desperately trying to clear your name back at Court while you and Belikov are off on a sexually charged adventure to find her brother or sister.
    – Last Sacrifice, 161.

    Hilarious. True. And totally Victor-like. =)

  35. Comment by Fernanda Coronel Torres:

    There’s soo many great quotes… but here’s one from Frostbite:
    “I felt like someone had ripped my heart out and tossed it across the other side of the room. There was a burning, agonizing pain in my chest, and I had no idea how it could ever be filled. It was one thing to accept that I couldn’t have Dimitri. It was something entirely different to realize someone else could.”
    (It made me cry)

  36. Comment by Fernanda Coronel Torres:

    Here’s another one =D
    “I’d said it before and meant it: Alive or undead, the love of my life was a badass.”
    (and hell, he is!!!)

  37. Comment by Anna Dase:

    – Dimitri, Vampire Academy 🙂

  39. Comment by Vivian M:

    “He handed me a small, plain bag. Puzzled and excited, I opened it up. Lip gloss, the kind I liked. I’ve complained to him a number of times I was running out, but I’ve never thought he was paying attention.
    “How’d you manage to buy this? I saw you the whole time at the mall.”
    “Guardian Secrets”
    “What’s this for? My first day?”
    “No,” he said simply. “Because I thought it would make you happy.”

    *SWOONS* why doesn’t anyone do this to me?!? Rose you are SOOOO lucky <3

    Well I have several quotes that I love, so I hope no one minds me posting more than one 😀

    Dimitri : You’re burned in my mind forever. There’s nothing, nothing in this world that could ever change that’.
    Rose: And it was memories like that that made it hard to even comprehend this quest to kill him, even if he is a Strigoi. Yet . . at the same time, it was exactly memories like that that…i had to destroy him. I needed to remember him as the man who’d love me and held me in bed. I needed to remember that that man wouldn’t want to stay a monster. (Blood Promise)

    Rose : “I will always love you.” Then plunged the stake into his chest. It wasn’t as precise as I would have liked, not with the skilled way he was dodging. I struggled to get the stake deep enough to his heart, unsure if I could do it from this angle. Then, his struggles stopped. His eyes stared at me, stunned, and his lips parted, almost like a smile, albeit a grisly and pained one. “That’s what I was supposed to say..” He gasped out. Those were his last words. (Blood Promise) – Damn I cried so hard at this one…

    Rose : You can’t force love, I realized. It’s there or it isn’t. If it’s not there, you’ve got to be able to admit it. If it is there, you’ve got to do whatever it takes to protect the ones you love. (Frostbite)

    Rose : I would never forget Dimitri, not for the rest of my life. And this time, I wouldn’t forget his lessons. With a speed he wasn’t ready for, I struck out and plunged the stake through his chest. My strength was there- sliding the stake past his ribs and straight into his heart. And as I did it, it was like piercing my own heart at the same time. (Blood Promise)

    “You’re beautiful in a battle”, said Dimitri. His cold voice carried to me clearly, even above the roar of combat. “ Like an evening angel come to deliver the justice of heaven.” “Funny”, I said, shifting the hold on my stake, “That’s kind of why I’m here.” “Angels fall, Rose.” (Spirit Bound)

    She was right about something else too,” Dimitri said after a long pause. My back was to him, but there was a strange quality to his voice that made me turn around. “What’s that?” I asked. “That I do still love you.” With that one sentence, everything in the universe changed. Time slowed to one heartbeat. The world became his eyes, his voice. This wasn’t happening. It wasn’t real. None of it could be real. It felt like a spirit dream. I resisted the urge to close my eyes and see if I’d wake up moments later. No. No matter how unbelievable it all seemed, this was no dream. This was real. This was life. This was flesh and blood.. (Last Sacrifice)

    Dimitri : “Love fades. Mine has.” (Spirit Bound) – I felt like killing him when I read this, even though I knew it couldn’t be real :))

  41. Comment by Vovka:

    I hope this contest is open internationally 🙂
    Anyway here are my favorite quotes:
    –“Love fades. Mine has.”
    The most destructive sentence in the world!
    –“Oh God, I’m Zmey’s daughter. Zmey Junior. Zmeyette, even.”
    Because I love Abe <3
    –And there are so much more!

    Thanks for this amazing contest, it's very nice from Michelle to answer your questions too, that's a great "interview" !

  42. Comment by Chel:

    So excited for this book! Hope you ship internationally. *crosses fingers*
    My favorite VA quotes are mostly by Adrian and Abe. Here’s one:

    “Ah, my daughter,ʺ he said. ʺEighteen, and already youʹve been accused of murder, aided felons, and acquired a death count higher than most guardians will ever see.ʺ He paused. ʺI couldnʹt be prouder.”

    “My cigarettes and I are going outside. At least they show me respect.” -Adrian, Shadow Kiss

    No one had ever called me unnatural before, except for the time I put ketchup on a taco.- Rose, Blood Promise

    “What do you think, little dhampir? I was pretty bada*s with that plant, wasn’t I? Of course it would have been more bada*s if I’d, I dunno, helped an amputee grow a limb back. Or maybe separated Siamese twins. But that’ll come with more practice.” -Adrian
    “If you want some advice-which I’m sure you don’t-you guys should lay off on the magic. Christian still thinks your moving in on Lissa.” -Rose
    “What? Doesn’t he know that my heart belongs to you?” -Adrian
    “It dose not. And no, he’s still worried about it, despite what I’ve told him.” -Rose
    ” You know, I bet if we started making out right now, it would make him feel better.” -Adrian
    “If you touch me, I’ll provide you with the oppritunity to see if you can heal your self. Then we’d see how bada*s you really are.” -Rose, Shadow Kiss

  48. Comment by Vitalia:

    1. Being a victim means youʹre powerless. That you wonʹt take action. Always . . . always Iʹve done something to fight for myself . . . for others. No matter what. Rose, Last Sacrifice

    2. You forget: I have an addictive personality. I’m addicted to you. Somehow I think you could do all sorts of bad things to me, and I’d still come back to you. Adrian, Spirit Bound
    3. I loved you, and you destroyed me. You took my heart and ripped it up. You might as well have staked me! I. Loved. You. And you used me the whole time. Adrian, Last Sacrifice

  49. Comment by Jessica McLaughlin (@JessEmmaZack):

    Ah! So many to chose from! I think I am going to go with some of the funnier ones 🙂 Of course they are from Rose and Adrian!

    “Even I make mistakes. I know it’s hard to believe-kind of surprises me myself-but I guess it has to happen. It’s probably some kind of karmic way to balance out the universe. Otherwise it wouldn’t be fair one person so full of awesomeness.” -Rose, Shadow Kiss

    And than suddenly he was there, charging down the hallway like death in a cowboy duster.- Rose, Vampire Academy

    “None of you appreciate me. Why is it so hard to believe that I could make a real contribution in these dark times? My cigarettes and I are going outside. At least they show me respect.”
    – Adrian Ivashkov (Shadow Kiss)

    It’s SO hard to choose a favorite! There are too many awesome quotes to count, but I’ll go with this one for now:

    “Ah, my daughter,” he said. “Eighteen and already you’ve been accused of murder, aided felons, and aquired a death count higher than most guardians will ever see.” He paused. “I couldn’t be prouder.”
    -LOL, I love Abe.

    Oh and also, this one. (Sorry, couldn’t help it!)
    “No. If I let myself love you, I won’t throw myself in front of her. I’ll throw myself in front of you.”

    And I also love every quote that includes Dimitri saying “Roza.” I just melt, haha.

    I love this series so much!! And there are so many wonderfull quotes… some of my favorites:

    – “Alive or undead, the love of my life was a badass”

    – “Roza.” His voice had that same wonderful lowness, the same accent . . . it
    was all just colder. “You forgot my first lesson: Don’t hesitate.”

    – “Love fades. Mine has.”

    – “Since…since when?

  61. Comment by Michelle Lee:

    This isn’t really a quote, but it is my favorite part in Last Sacrifice pg 550-551:

    I felt myself falling, felt Lissa catching me and yelling something-maybe to me, maybe to someone else. There was so much commotion in the room that I didn’t know what had happened to Tasha. There was just me and the pain that my mind was trying to block out. The world seemed to grow quieter and quieter. I saw Lissa looking down at me, shouting something I couldn’t hear. She was beautiful. Brilliant. Crowned in light… but there was darkness closing around her. And in that darkness, I saw the faces… the ghosts and spirits that always followed me.Thicker they grew, closing in. Beckoning.
    A gun. I had been brought down by a gun. It was practically comical. Cheaters, I thought.I’d spent my life focusing on hand-to-hand, learning to dodge fangs and powerful hands that could snap my neck.A gun? It was so… well, easy. Should I be iinsulted? I didn’t know. Did it matter? I didn’t know that either. All I knew in that moment was that I was going to die, regardless.
    My vision was growing dimmer, the blackness and ghost closing in, and I swore, it was like I could hear Robert wispering in my ear: The world of the dead won’t give you up a second time.
    Just before the light completely vanished, I saw Dimitri’s face join Lissa’s. I wanted to smile. I decided then that if the two people I loved most were safe, I could leave this world. The dead could finally have me. And I fufilled my purpose, right? To protect? I’d done it. I’d saved Lissa, just like I’d sword I’d always do. I was dying in battle. No appointment book for me.
    Lissa’s face shone with tears, and I hoped that mine conveyed how much I loved her. With the last spark of life I had left, I tried to speak, tried to let Dimitri know I loved him too and that he had to protect her now. I don’t think he understood, but the words of the guardian mantra were my last conscious thought.
    They come first.

    My actual favorite quote is: “We were total badasses.”

  62. Comment by Renata. F.S.:

    There are so many quotes that I like, but I will put my favorites:

    -“The only thing better than imagining Dimitri carrying me in his arms was imagining him shirtless while carrying me in his arms.” – Rose.

    – “See something you like?”
    “Get dressed”. -Rose and Dimitri.

    – “Oh, Roza… You express yourself more than anyone else I know.” – Dimitri.

    – “You didn’t understand what it was like to be filled with a love so strong that it made my chest ache – a love I could only feel and not express.” – Rose.

    – “I set off, off to kill the man I loved.” – Rose.

    -You’re burned in my mind forever. There’s nothing, nothing in this world that could ever change that”. – Dimitri.

    – “Rose, how could I forget being naked with someone as beautiful as you? I stayed awake so many nights, replaying every detail. I told myself over and over that it was wrong, but you’re impossible to forget.” His lips moved to my collarbone, and his hand stroked my hip. “You’re burned into my mind forever. There is nothing, nothing in this world that will ever change that.” -Dimitri.

    – “Your love was too strong. Our love was too strong. Not even the undead could keep us apart.” – Dimitri.

    – “Oh God,” I said. “I’m Zmey’ daughter. Zmey Junior. Zmeyette, even.” – Rose.

    – “Your optimism . . . your belief that you can make anything happen. Oh, Rose. It’s one of the amazing things about you. It’s also one of the most infuriating things about you.” – Dimitri.

    – You’ve always been my equal, Roza.” – Dimitri.

    – “Because sometimes, a person can get so caught up in the details that they miss the whole. It’s not just the dress or the hair. It’s you. You’re beautiful. So beautiful, it hurts me.” – Dimitri.

    – “Ah, my daughter,” he said. “Eighteen, and you’ve already been accused of murder, aided felons, and acquired a death count higher than most guardians will ever see.” He paused. “I couldn’t be prouder.” – Abe.

    – “What was love, really? Flowers, chocolate and poetry? Or was it something else? Was it being able to finish someone’s jokes? Was it having absolute faith that someone was there at your back? Was it knowing someone so well that they instantly understood why you did the things you did and shared those same beliefs? All week, I’d claimed my love for Dimitri was fading. In reality, it had been growing more and more.” – Rose.

    But I think this is my favorite one:

    – “No. If I let myself love you, I won’t throw myself in front of her. I’ll throw myself in front of you”. – Dimitri <3

    Christian ” what the hell kinda therapy are you in?”

    Adrian ” you know this might be hot except you looking at me like a science fair project”

    Adrian: I think that there will be the same problem with this one as the the last collage.
    Rose: What?
    Adrian: Homework. But don’t worry about it, once Rose and I get married me and the kids will just live off her guardian pay check.
    I gotta win 🙁

    “Lissa and I had been best friends ever since kindergarten, when our teacher had paired us together for writing lessons. Forcing five-year-olds to spell Vasilisa Dragomir and Rosemarie Hathaway was beyond cruel, and we’d—or rather, I’d—responded appropriately. I’d chucked my book at our teacher and called her a fascist bastard. I hadn’t known what those words meant, but I’d known how to hit a moving target. Lissa and I had been inseparable ever since. ”

    Dimitri: “Were you really going to attack all of us? Doing that…protecting her like that—it was very brave. Stupid, but still brave. Why did you even try it?”

    The last one from me: “None of it seems real. Who knows? Maybe it isn’t. Maybe it’s actually happening to someone else. Maybe it’s something I imagined. Maybe soon I’m going to wake up and find everything fixed with Lissa and Dimitri. We’ll all be together, and he’ll be there to smile and hold me and tell me everything’s going to be okay. Maybe all of this really has been a dream.

    But I don’t think so.” -Rose Hathaway, “Blood Promise”, Chapter 1
