This is a question about the Vampire Acadamy series.  I'm almost finished with the second in the series Frostbite.  But I sense a plot complication and was wondering if you could help me out.

Rose and the gang have been captured by the Strigoi.  The Strigoi are supposes to have no magical powers, yet the head Strigoi uses compulsion on some of the gang.  Why can he have compusion, but not any other "live vampire" powers?

It just bugged me.  Am I missing something from an the first book that explains this?

I don't remember the Strigoi not having magical powers ... I thought they were able to do whatever other vampires could do. I think because they've lost their souls, they aren't part of the 'magic' world, whatever that means.  Hmm.  Now you have me wondering, too.  I may have to go back and re-read these books ... oh, darn!

Is it August yet???!  :-)
