Rose Hathaway's got serious guy trouble. Her gorgeous tutor Dimitri has his eye on someone else, her friend Mason has a huge crush on her, and she keeps getting stuck in her best friend Lissa's head while she's making out with her boyfriend, Christian. (So not cool).
Then a massive Strigoi attack puts St. Vladimir's on high alert, and the Academy crawls with Guardians--including the legendary Janine Hathaway...Rose's formidable, long-absent mother. The Strigoi are closing in, and the Academy's not taking any risks. This year, St. Vlad's annual holiday ski trip is mandatory.
But the glittering winter landscape and the posh Idaho resort only provide the illusion of safety. When three students run away to strike back against the deadly Strigoi, Rose must join forces with Christian to rescue them. Only this time, Rose--and her heart--are in more danger than she ever could have imagined...
4 stars out of 5 stars
Frostbite is the Vampire Academy follow up and while it not my favorite book so far, I certainly enjoyed it. The story starts off pretty quickly but just as fast as it starts, it begins to slow down. However, after a certain point in the story, it picks up and I couldn't read fast enough. Rose is still charming as ever, Dimitri is still an untouchable God, and Lissa and Christian are sickeningly cute as expected. Even newcomer Adrian left an impression on me.
I wasn't expecting the ending and I found myself shedding some tears and worried about what it would mean for Rose. I can't wait to see what happens next. Onto Shadow Kiss!
