Lissa Dragomir (Lucy Fry) is a Moroi princess: a mortal vampire who lives in danger of the bloodthirsty Strigoi, the fiercest and most dangerous vampires who are hell-bent on taking the lives of the Moroi. Rose Hathaway (Deutch) is Lissa’s best friend and a Dhampir, a powerful blend of human and vampire that serve as the guardians of the Moroi against their bloodthirsty enemies.
On the run for two years and living discreetly amongst humans, the best friends are tracked down and reinstated back into their world – St Vladimir’s Academy. It is there that Rose must train and finesse her fighting skills under the watchful eye of her dreamy mentor Dimitri (Kozlovsky), in order to graduate as a Guardian and be formally assigned to protect her best friend. As Moroi royalty Lissa, must assume her rightful place and learn to understand her unbreakable bond to the earth’s magic. Life is just as they remembered it at St Vladimir’s, but Rose can’t help shake the darkness that is looming, and the fear that the Strigoi are closing in with the intent of hurting those she loves. The pair must navigate through their dangerous world, confront the temptation of forbidden romance, and prepare themselves for the impending battle that threatens life as they know it.
