News: Regarding Buying Vampire Academy Series with Red Covers

last sacrifice by richelle meadSince I posted a few weeks back about all the new red UK covers for the whole Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead, I have had a few people come to me asking where they can get them. Everyone seemed to be saying the same thing; either online or in actual shops, they could only find either Frostbite or Last Sacrifice with the new covers.

I emailed my contact at Puffin about this and found out some information. It turns out that the novels with the new covers will become available once the novels with the old covers sell out, and a reprint is needed. Then the new covers will be available to buy. Last Sacrifice has only been released with this one cover, and Frostbite has been reprinted, hence the red cover. The other novels in the series are yet to need reprinting, which is why we can't find them anywhere. Apparently, it could take a couple of months before we see the new red covers on our bookshops' shelves or on online stores. It's just a case of waiting, I'm afraid. Hope this helps some of you!

  4. Thanks Jo, since I didn't own this series & was planning on buying it I'm going to hold off until I find the new covers in the shops :o) I feel sorry for everyone who purchased the black covers & can't get a matching copy of Last Sacrifice though - I hate when they change the covers part way through a series!!

  5. No problem! I just hope you don't have to wait too long! I'm not too bothered about not having a matching set. My set of the whole series has three different styles of covers, lol.

  8. Is that why I can't find the first book to buy anywhere? I've seen all the other books available with the red covers, but not the first book.. And if I'm going to buy the other ones in red, I also want the first book in red.:D

  11. It's now 2012, I've looked at buying the whole series, and on Amazon it's still impossible to get the first book with the red cover, whereas all the others are now available... Any news?

  12. I'm afraid I haven't heard anything about it since. Perhaps VA hasn't needed a reprint yet?

    1. I'm afraid I don't know. Your best asking the publishers. I'll try asking on Twitter.

    2. I asked Puffin on Twitter. The edition of Vampire Academy with the red cover can now be bought on Waterstones here.

  14. Okay, so I JUST found out about the glorious red covers and I WANT them. Unfortunately, I'm in America and the only places i can find where you can buy them are UK websites with, like, pounds instead of dollars and stuff. So my question is, where could an American purchase these covers with American dollars?

  15. What if you live somewhere other than the UK. Where would you get the new covers and can we even get them?
