Vampire Academy: Korean Editions

8 Dec

VA Korea 5
Inside covers: with Rose and Lissa on Book 1, and Dimitri  on Book 2.

A few people I’ve spoken to have expressed interest in the Korean editions of Vampire Academy that I had Richelle Sign last night. So I thought I’d share some more photos and information on the books.
I’m really not sure why book two was renamed Sad Illusion. That sounds more like the name of a K-Pop boy band, than a translation of “Frostbite”.

The outside covers.

I’ve been collecting signed books for over ten years, and sometimes buy special foreign editions of my favorite authors’ works. After seeing the books on a VA fan site, I knew they were just too beautiful not to have. The detailed illustrations are even more amazing in person.

After a little google sleuthing, I managed to track down copies at a Korean book store in LA. (It’s times like these having past job experience as a researcher really comes in handy!)

I’m hoping I can add Shadow Kiss to my collection soon:
Shadow Kiss: Korea

No, sadly I can’t read Korean. But I’ll keep these beautiful editions of one of my favorite book series in my collection forever.
