Rose Hathaway (Deutsch) is a dhampir, half-vampire and half-human, who is training to be a guardian at St. Vladimir’s Academy along with many others like her. There are good and bad vampires in their world: Moroi, who co-exist peacefully among the humans and only take blood from donors, and also possess the ability to control one of the four elements – water, earth, fire or air; and Strigoi, blood-sucking, evil vampires who drink to kill. Rose and other dhampir guardians are trained to protect Moroi and kill Strigoi throughout their education. Along with her best friend Princess Vasillisa Dragomir (Fry), a Moroi and the last of her line, with whom she has a nigh unbreakable bond, Rose must run away from St. Vladimir’s in order to protect Lissa from those who wish to harm the princess and use her for their own means.
