Review (8): Frostbite by Richelle Mead

Title: Frostbite (Vampire Academy #2)
Author: Richelle Mead
Rating: 4.5/5
Overview: Rose loves Dimitri, Dimitri might love Tasha, and Mason would die to be with Rose... 

It’s winter break at St. Vladimir’s, but Rose is feeling anything but festive. A massive Strigoi attack has put the school on high alert, and now the Academy’s crawling with Guardians—including Rose’s hard-hitting mother, Janine Hathaway. And if hand-to-hand combat with her mom wasn’t bad enough, Rose’s tutor Dimitri has his eye on someone else, her friend Mason’s got a huge crush on her, and Rose keeps getting stuck in Lissa’s head while she’s making out with her boyfriend, Christian! 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 create the illusion of safety. When three friends run away in an offensive move against the deadly Strigoi, Rose must join forces with Christian to rescue them. But heroism rarely comes without a price.


I am going to have some serious bruises by the end of this series.  I've been kicking myself for not starting this series since the start of the first book.  I cannot believe that I doubted that I would like this series.  I loved the first book, and this second one is even better!

I really have to say that I wish I was able to meet Rose and be in the world she is.  She is such a kick ass person and I relate to her so well.  I would give anything to actually see this place.  It sounds incredible.  And the guys, oh boy, the guys.  Mason was such a sweetheart.  He is so funny and awesome.  Dimitri is that guy that every girl wants to have in their life, to help them on the way through life.  And Adrian.  I don't really even know how to describe him because he was just introduced to us in the book and I'm not really sure how I feel about him yet.

There is a lot of side stories in this because there is still a lot to learn about Rose's new world, but I love learning all this information about this amazing place.  The action in this book is non stop and there is almost one action scene in every chapter!

I cried at the end.  Just with everything that happens between Rose and her mom and between Rose and Dimitri.  I'm a big baby when it comes to books lately and I'm not sure why!!

This series is amazing and I would recommend it to anyone.
