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…


BOOK REVIEW:



Good Vampires are Moroi, who can wield magic, in each of the four elements. Earth, Air , Water, Fire , they don’t really use their magic anymore, they are not fighters..... a new element has been discovered amongst the Academy.


Richelle Mead steps up the pace in ‘Frostbite’, I felt this book was starting to speak to me and tell me a story that I could see developing into a 6 book series.  Now the story is getting interesting. The Strigoi have made an appearance and are showing their evil side. I am feeling their presence now and the death they leave behind.


Janine Hathaway makes an appearance, the chip just got a whole lot bigger on Rose’s shoulder. Janine and Rose have a verbal sparring match that goes a little too far.


There is a relationship shift between Rose and Lissa and Rose and Dimitri. The green eyed monster is out and Rose doesn’t like it a bit.


Students are whisked away for their safety to a royal ski lodge in Idaho and that’s when things start heating up. Mia has come to a turning point in her life. Adrian Ivashkov has arrived and he is a great supporting character. I love his dialogue, vying for Rose’s attention, calling her little dhampir and at times appearing a tad crazy. Always makes for a humorous character.


Mason, Eddie and Mia decide to go Strigoi hunting, with Christian and Rose tracking the trio down.... then all hell breaks loose.......


I really enjoyed this instalment in the series and just had to rip into Shadow Kiss the minute I finished , ‘Frostbite’.


I highly recommend having all the books in the series ready to go, because my ratings went up when I started Shadow Kiss and hit top with Blood Promise.

 FAVE QUOTES:



“Hath-away, don’t run-away, “ a singsong voice called.


I glanced behind me and grinned. Mason Ashford, another novice and a good friend of mine, jogged up and fell in step with me.


“What are you, twelve?” I asked, continuing on toward the gym.






“I suppose that’s fair.” He drew in on the cigarette and let out the smoke. “Some women think they make me look sexy.”


“I think you smoke them so you have something to do while thinking up your next witty line.”
