Frostbite by Richelle Mead

I read this a week ago, I just haven’t had time to write anything about it. I really loved this book. It was great. And I mean GREAT! I read it in two days and that’s pretty fast for me these days. It definitely makes me want to go out and get the next book in the series, but unfortunately  it hasn’t been written yet. Oh Well, I guess I can wait until its written and published.

Rose always knows how to find trouble. And in Frostbite, not only does she find it, trouble seems to follow her around. There have been a few Moroi Royal families that have been killed by Strigoi and the entire Moroi universe is upheaved. They have to decide whether to enlist Moroi to protect themselves or to keep up the current state and do nothing and wait out the Strigoi.

Hell breaks loose when yet another royal family is slaughtered and a lot of the Moroi families decide to camp out at a ski resort. This ensures that there are plenty of guardians around to protect the Academy students and their families. Little do they know, instead of keeping Strigoi out, they need to be keeping academy students inside.

A few of the students decide that they are going to take this matter into their own hands. They are going to hunt down Strigoi that are causing all this turmoil and do what they can to kill them. Rose, of course, has to follow these rogue students on their suicide mission and make them see that they are not strong enough to handle any Strigoi. In the process, she becomes a hostage, sees one of her best friends die, and kills two Strigoi all on her own.

We get to see a lot more of Dimitri and Rose action in this book. Of course, it’s not the kind that us readers really want. Mostly it’s just friction between the two, because it is a love that they both want, yet can’t have. Also in the book, we meet a new character, Adrian, who is like Lissa. He, too, is a spirit user, but has different abilities than Lissa. He can use conpulsion like Lissa, but can also talk to people in their dreams, unlike Lissa.  

Lissa isn’t much of a main character in this sequel, but there are some questions asked and answered about her spirit magic. It definitely makes you wonder what she can and cannot do. Also, in what direction Richelle Mead will take the next book in the series.

This is a must read for any vampire lover and Richelle Mead lover. I was very pleased by this sequel. It’s not often that a sequel is as good or better than the first and this one definitely takes the cake. I can’t wait until the next!!

    Sounds pretty cool. I promise I will check it out (despite the lack of Dimitri and Rose “action”).

    Well I’ll try to get the book & read it , if i can find it. I read Vampire Academy from my best friend & fell in love with the books. Kinda sucks that there is no Rose and Demitri action . But hey, forbidden love is just so romantic!

    That’s awesome. I’m pretty bad. I know that these books are great and I’ve stopped reading at Frostbite, because I know once I read it I won’t have anything good to read left. At least something I know that will be good. Now that the 5th one is about to come out I think I need to start back up again.
