Format: Paperback
For Rose Hathaway, life as a Guardian-in-training at St. Vladimir's Academy is never easy.

While her best friend, future charge, and sole remaining member of the royal family member (Lissa) may no longer be in direct danger, the Strigoi (those vampires who drink blood, possess super-strength, have red pupils, and also have no qualms about using their powers over the elements as a method of attack) are still the greatest threat facing their Moroi counterparts.

Rose and her number-one crush, instructor Dimitri Belakov, discover just how significant this threat is when they arrive at what should have been Rose's make-up Qualifier exam with famed Guardian Arthur Schoenberg. What they find instead is seven royal Moroi, massacred in their own home along with their Guardians - and evidence that the Strigoi are now being helped by humans.

With Christmas vacation drawing near, St. Vlad's is on high alert and not terribly inclined to unleash their students into the great wide world. A school field trip to an exclusive Moroi ski lodge is the perfect solution, not just for a Moroi seeking to elude the Strigoi, but also for Rose, who's looking to escape two recent female campus arrivals - one of whom has a history and penchant for flirting with Dimitri.

What guests from St. Vlad's and elsewhere will soon realize, though, is that their enemies are much closer than they think.

FROSTBITE is an engrossing, complex paranormal follow-up to VAMPIRE ACADEMY, with a page-turning plot and deeply layered characters, whose growth and development over the course of the novel is believable and (in some cases) inevitable. Though there were a few scenes that lagged, I had a hard time putting this book down even for necessities like eating and sleeping.

WARNING: Contains Spoilers

I fell in love with the series from the first book, and with the smart-mouth, impulsive Rose and the sweet, charismatic Lissa, and Frostbite definitely didn't let me down.

Told for Rose's point of view again, with glimpses into Lissa's via Rose and their unique psychic bond, the book is fast paced, exciting and just as addictive as the first. It starts with a brief introduction to the characters and the story so far, before diving straight into Rose's boy trouble and a huge Strigoi attack that leave both the Moroi and the dhampir worlds reeling.

And from there, Richelle Mead just drags you in with more and more action, romance and suspense. She had me completely hooked until the end. Going from Rose's many boy troubles to the more sinister worries of what the Strigoi will do next, and more importantly: what - and if - the Moroi and the dhampirs are going to do to stop them...

Once again, I have to say just have to say how much I love Rose. She has this way of looking at things: she can go from being slightly petty when it comes to certain subjects to being completely oblivious to her own safety when it comes to keeping her best friend safe. It's really rather refreshing and often very funny. I love the impulsive side of her: the one that makes her so sarcastic but I also really like it when she shows the side that makes you see just how calm and mature she can be: once again, when it comes to Lissa.

Lissa is still selfless as ever, struggling slightly with her element the spirit, but just as loveable as before. Her boyfriend, Christian, really makes me laugh, too, even if he really annoys Rose, and I like his complete devotion to Lissa: it's really cute.

Richelle Mead is hitting all the right buttons with this series, which is of a very high standard. A well constructed supernatural world with clearly thought out and developed 'races' of Moroi, Guardians and Strigoi. The characterisation is excellent and a great complexity of relationships and roles between our heroine Rose and Dmitri (teacher and possible lover), Rose and Lissa (Guardian to her Moroi) and Rose and her mother (child/parent but also potential work colleagues). Strong plot, well carried through and it feels as though there is so much potential to come from this series. Even Rose is getting less irritating - but I guess she is just a teenager!

It sometimes amazes me how authors are able to come up with such fantastic stories - and Richelle Mead is one of these authors! I absolutely loved Frostbite, probably more so than I did Vampire Academy!

If you wanted to compare books, there is a lot less of Lissa in this novel, and a lot less intrigue throughout the first part of the novel. This is not a bad thing though. Sometimes, when reading the first book in a series, it's obvious it's a first book; it's setting up the plot for future stories, it introduces characters and mythology, it gives you enough to whet your appetite, but isn't exactly a complete story. Vampire Academy wasn't like that, it was it's own full story, with it's own plotline, and it was incredible - but after reading Frostbite, you can see how it could work like an obvious first story, as we know all of the above, and now we have, in Frostbite, what I would say is Rose's story.

As I said, there was less intrigue; there was the worrying about Lissa's powers and who was after her in the first novel, but in Frostbite, the danger isn't necessarily on anyone specific, it's just there. We focus a lot more on Rose's relationship with her mother, her feelings towards the guys in her life, the gorgeous Dimitri and the lovely Mason, and some issues with herself about whether she's changed or not. It's a brilliant insight into Rose, where as the first book was more focused on her wanting to protect Lissa. It was great to see more of this Rose, vulnerable Rose, and to see her grow.

Yes, there is less Lissa as I said, but there is more of some other characters that we have come to love - or love to hate - like Christian, Mason, and Mia. And, well, wow! I can't really go into it without spoiling the story, but these three, along with Rose...
