L: Frostbite, I believe, was harder to get into than Vampire Academy. I think it was gloomier than the first book; then again, this made it more believable. Because it didnt focus so much on the everyday doings of high school cliques and so forth, I found it more understandable.
I tend to find that romances in books that are the second in series tend to be more downplayed than the first. Usually, Im right like in here. Rose and Dimitri are going through tough times; Dimitri seems to have taken interest in someone else, and Rose is busy trying to deal with her friendship that could possibly turn into love life with Mason, her friend. And wait until she meets &
At first, I found this book to be what I call a filler a book to fill the gaps of the series. But in the end, when the book reached its climax, I changed my mind.
Rose, gradually turning from the sarcastic girl we met in the first book to the person who started to deeply understand others, changed, giving me insight into the other parts of one of my favorite kick-ass heroines. The influence from Dimitri and Lissa both changed her. And then, then came the tragedy &

Release Date: April 10, 2008
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 handto- 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...
This was an outstanding continuation of the Vampire Academy series! I am 100% hooked on them now. The plot in this one was not less thrilling then the last. Once again, readers are hooked in with the first sentence. Richelle Mead's style of writing is fascinating to read.Once again, readers fall in love with the characters especially Dimitri. Who could be more perfect than him? The entire series is a must read!
not the best of sequels but it was pretty good!! rose and her mom better their relationship. unfortunately one of the good characters die. rose gets two molninja marks and her and dimitri kinda decide to stop fighting against their feeling.. i love how rose is kinda maturing but still reckless sometimes!!
This book was one of the best!!! they went to a place to stay for a while sorta i guess a trip and a hideout! then there was another attack and mias parents got killed! so her and mason and some others decided to leave and run after the strigoi so rose and christian decided to go after them and got kidnapped by strigoi! then rose and all of them got out of their room and ran into the top dogs! rose ended up killing both but in the way was mason...He got killed also :o( but in the end dimitri and her mom came to save them...Very sad at the end but i loved loved loved this book and the series!!!
This book was way better than the first one. You didn't have to learn as much new stuff and it had more action. I thought this book would be predictable, but it was the complete opposite. The ending of this book, was awesome, but really sad. This book was a great read and I would recommend it to everyone.
This book is even better than the first book of this series. This book tells almost all of the secrets that you would love to hear. The two Shadow Hunters finall notice each other. I mean its the perfect love story that any one could get addicted too. It fun for anyone to read. If I loved it, then EVERYONE will love it, because i'm a picky reader.
omg, i can't believe what happened to Mason its so sad. i can't believe Rose and Dimitra can't be together, but ther would make a cute couple. Lisa might the shy but she is get braver by the minute. omg i totally thought Dimitra was going to go with that woman; when i was reading it i was yelling put NO
For those of you who fell in love with Dimitri in Vampire Academy this is not the most exciting. When Vladimere Acadamy goes to a ski resort for break Mason and Rose become closer friends which Rose uses his crush against her to make Dimitri jealous for being to friendly with Tasha Ozera (Christian Ozera's aunt) and since Chiristain and Lissa are together that means she sees to much of them. Then along comes Adrian, a moroi with a bad boy reputation, who seems to be falling for Rose. The most intresting thing about Adrian is he's a spirit user just like Lissa. When Rose's mom is along on the trip to conflicts arise between the two. Dimitri tells Rose of a place where there are supposed strigoi are. When things between Rose and mason heat up she turns him away and he decides to chase after the strigoi. Rose and Christian hunt after their friends before anything disastrous can happen but that wish does not come true, with a horrible turn out for Mason and Rose's first two strigoi kills. This installment has a little more of a dreary ending and does not spend enough time with Dimitri! Â
