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…

Have I ever mentioned how much I love this series? Because I do, I really do!

Sequels are rarely as good as the first book, but I felt that Frostbite was better than Vampire Academy (read my review here) in nearly every way. Everything about this book was awesome. I just couldn't put it down! There were so many twists and turns, and I swear I cried at one point. It was so intense.

As much as I liked Rose in the first book, I loved her in this one. She's still reckless and bad-ass and incredibly snarky, but she also evolved to be a much better person. I think I grew to love every character much more after the events of this book, especially Christian (), Eddie, Mia and, of course, Dimitri.

(I honestly never thought Russian accents could be so hot.)

Fast-paced, fun, and heart-pounding, Frostbite was an amazing second book in a series that is quickly becoming one of my favourites! 

BUY or BORROW?: Buy it, for sure! I loved this book! :)
