Review: Frostbite by Richelle Mead
Frostbite is the second book in the Vampire Academy series and was even more entertaining than the first. Rose is six months away from graduation and has almost caught up with her classmates. She is about to take her junior year assessment when it is discovered that there was a major Stigoi attack. Several Moroi Royals and their Dampir guardians are dead. It is believed that the Stigoi are now working with humans, which makes them even more deadly. Daylight and Moroi magic can no longer guarantee safety.
The relationship between Rose and Dimitri is still very awkward and not at all where Rose would like for it to be. Christian and Lissa are a lot closer, but another royal named Adrian starts to put a strain on their relationship. There is something going on between Adrian, Lissa, and Rose, which causes Christian to become jealous...even though he has no reason to be. I guess I am a sucker for the arrogant guys because I actually liked Adrian. He reminded me a lot of Noah Shaw from the Mara Dyer series, which is always a good thing. He has some very unique abilities and was more than willing to help Rose and Lissa when they needed it most.
Rose, Christian, and a few other students from the Academy find themselves in a very dangerous situation, which created an action packed conclusion to this book. I can't imagine the frustration I would have felt if I had to wait a year to find out what happens next.
