Review - Frostbite (Vampire Academy 2) by Richelle Mead

4 out of 5

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…

My Review:

Rose Hathaway has great attitude! She starts by winding up her mother and Dimitri Belikov (her mentor) and pushes them both away. She feels rejection from Lissa who is spending more time with boyfriend Christian leaving little left for Rose. And soon she meets Adrian Ivashkov (who we all love!)
The characters start to get wrapped up in their own adventures and sooner or later Rose has to be the voice of reason. We see Rose start to grow up and think rationally (especially when Dimitri is concerned).
A follow up is always harder than the first book but Frostbite covers all the bases. The romance is gorgeous and beautifully written and the story doesn't stop from beginning to end.
Definitely a great read if you like the first VA book.
