Goodreads Summary:

WHEN LOVE AND JEALOUSY COLLIDE ON THE SLOPES, WINTER BREAK TURNS DEADLY…

Lissa Dragomir is a Moroi princess: a mortal vampire with a rare gift for harnessing the earth’s magic. She must be protected at all times from Strigoi; the fiercest vampires – the ones who never die. The powerful blend of human and vampire blood that flows through Rose Hathaway, Lissa’s best friend, makes her a dhampir. Rose is dedicated to a dangerous life of protecting Lissa from the Strigoi, who are hell-bent on making Lissa one of them.

Rose has 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.

Then a nearby Strigoi attack puts St. Vladimir’s on high alert, and the Academy whisks its students away on a mandatory holiday ski trip. But the glittering winter landscape and 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…

My Review

I loved the first book in this series so much, so I was more than looking forward to reading the next in the series. I must say that I definitely enjoyed it a lot, but not quite as much as I did Vampire Academy.

Frostbite picks up right where the first book left off, with Rose and Lissa having been put through the wringer after both being attacked by Strigoi. Lissa finally learns the truth about her abilities, and Rose and Dimitri’s relationship is back to square one. So, now that Rose has gone through enough school, she can take the “exam” to continue her training. However, while she’s on her way to do so, her and Dimitri stumble upon a devastating crime scene and soon discover just how much more of a threat the Strigoi are about to become.

Although I liked Frostbite, I felt that not as much happened in this sequel as did the first. That may just be because the first one had to introduce all the characters for the first time. However, there are some new characters that are brought in as well, that I actually really liked! I definitely was not expecting the plot to take place the way it did, but it was great to see the characters in a new setting. The ending of the book was insane and had me completely enthralled! There were just so many emotions thrown at me at once, I could barely keep up! I can’t wait to read more!

I would definitely recommend you read Frostbite if you’ve started the series! Buy it on Amazon here!
