Vampire Academy

Paranormal YA characters tend to be a pretty mopey lot, whether they’re pining after sparkly vampire boyfriends or stressing over whether they’ll use their witchy powers for good or evil. But the tough, sarcastic leads of Vampire Academy look like a welcome exception.

Rose (Zoey Deutch) is a snarky ass-kicker in the Buffy Summers mold, though she protects bloodsuckers instead of fighting them; her charge and BFF is Lissa (Lucy Fry) is a vampire princess whose royal lineage doesn’t stop her from hating high school.

But Ms. Ryder maintains that Heathers 2 is not only coming, but that it is actively being developed. Judge her comments for yourself with the quote barrage after the jump.
