Richelle Mead

Richelle Mead is an international bestselling author of over twenty-five books for both adults and teens. Her Georgina Kincaid and Dark Swan series take a witty but edgy look at the paranormal while her sci-fi Age of X series shows us a future with no religion.

Over on the young adult side, Richelle has written the much-acclaimed Vampire Academy series and its spin-off, Bloodlines, about a secret society keeping the vampire world hidden from humans. Her latest project, The Glittering Court, takes place in a fantasy world inspired by colonial America, following the adventures of three impoverished girls trained up to be "ladies" who can make advantageous marriages in a dangerous new world across the sea.

Richelle's books have been on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists and received honors from the American Library Association. Her books have been translated into over two dozen languages, as well as adapted into graphic novels. In 2014, Vampire Academy was made into a feature film. A lifelong reader, Richelle loves mythology and wacky humor. When not writing, she can be found spending time with her family, buying dresses, and watching bad reality TV.

  • Fantastic ending to a fantastic series!

    by on

    An epic finale to a truly amazing series. My favourite vampire series by far. However, my relationship with the books was kind of strange. I would be reading one, totally engrossed and fascinated, and then when it finished I would forget about it a bit. I did not jump at the opportunity to pick up the next. I dont know why - the books are amazing, maybe it is just a result of the sheer size of half of the books.

    I don't know what it is about Mead's writing style and the world she has created, but I get completely sucked into the story. This particular vampire world is so unique, and I loved it. I stayed up until 3am to read this book, because I just could not draw myself away. There is so much that goes on in the story, leaving no room for slow-paced, boring scenes.

    Rose disappointed me a little bit in this book. Don't get me wrong, I love Rose. She is an incredible strong and ballsy character who is willing to take insane risks and sacrifice herself for others, however her relationship with Dimitri in this book brought out a side of Rose that I cannot commend. The main action I am referring to (which I will not explain, so as not to spoil the story) resulted in me losing some respect for Rose. I still think she is an amazing character, but what she did was unfair to one party, whom I adore.

    I loved Lissa's development in this book aswell. After having Rose taken away from her and put into a very dangerous position, Lissa grows a backbone and works towards finding a solution to Rose's problematic situation. She is really strong throughout this book, and her intellect shines through as well, in various challenges she faces. I have always loved Lissa, she is kind, passionate and caring, but I really admire her determination in strength in this book.

    The ending was good and bad. I liked where Rose had ended up, but I feel it was a little sugar-coated on her side, and then a lot of the side characters were ignored. I really want to know what happened to everyone else! And I guess that is a main reason for me wanting to get into Bloodlines.

  • I really wish it didn't have to end

    by on

    The final instalment of the vampire academy series really brings it home.

    Everything in this book ties together so perfectly with the others and I couldn't help but let out a few squeals when some of my predictions came true but the one thing that really set me off was the ending. It was so perfect and unpredictable and out of the many outcomes I had come up with in the wait to get the book that was something that had never crossed my mind. It was pure brilliance. I still remember the day I finally finished reading it, I screamed wholey crap so loud that the neighbour came over and told me off. Oops.

    With drama, romance and non-stop action along with plenty of feel good moments from our favourite couple in between, combined with murder, mystery and backstabbing this really is the book to end all books.

    It made me laugh and cry and even sometimes through it across the room in anger.

    To be honest when I picked up this book I thought 'heres another sappy love story about vampires to add to the collection' and thank the book Gods it wasn't. Richelle Mead had brilliant and unique ideas and I feel like it will never become just another one of the many vampire books out there. So if you have yet pick it up and give it a read, GO AHEAD ALREADY. I promise you will love it.

  • Dissapointed

    by on

    The first five books leading up to this ending has been a fantastic roller-coaster of a journey, taking through the ups and downs of Rose Hathaway.

    Throughout the novels, she is faced with hardships and you are constantly inspired with how well she is able to deal with all these complications. All the characters in the novel are portrayed as strong and independent, showing small signs of vulnerability that reminds you that they too are like you and I, and that they are people to be related with, however in this last novel, the ending is too superficial.

    The classic happy ending is here, whereas each other book had dramatic endings that kept you on your toes. The ending to this one however is too good to be true. Even one of the characters admit to this saying that Rose gets everything she's ever wanted and that things end up being perfect for her.

    Not only that but Dimitri one of the main characters that was portrayed as strong and a total bad-ass has been reduced to a whimpering baby-like state.

    If the series had ended with Blood Promise or somewhere in Spirit Bound, it would have been a much better ending I feel to the legendary Rose Hathaway, but instead it has ended in a sappy love story where once again the protagonist is at the top, getting their happy ending.
