Review: Frostbite by Richelle Mead
Book #2 in Vampire Academy series.
Pages: 327 Release Date: April 10th 2008 Publisher: Razorbill Source: RAK (Own)
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…
4.5 stars/5 stars.
I loved Frostbite. It was better than Vampire Academy in my opinion. So, if this is the way to go, it seems the books are only going to get better and better!
Richelle Mead kept up all the tension and suspense that was to be expected. Also, I enjoyed how the romance developed between Rose and Dimitri - The last page! :)
I enjoyed how certain relationships changed and developed, some better than others. I felt so sorry for some of the characters, particularly Mason!
I really enjoyed this! I'm currently reading Shadow Kiss at the moment! :) I needed more!
Recommend to everyone who loves a bit of romance, action and suspense!
