My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I read this book in a total of 8 hours (almost straight!) and I have to say that Richelle Mead redeemed herself in this book! As you know, I wasn't overly impressed with Vampire Academy but I have found Frostbite to fill a bit of a void that I felt was lacking in the first book.
Frostbite focuses more on Rose's training as a guardian as well as her relationship with Dimitri. Some of the holes in the first book are filled in here also so it rather tied up some loose ends for me. There has been a Strigoi attack on one of the larger royal families so the Academy dismisses its students to the ski slopes for the Christmas holidays where everyone will be safe. While there, another attack takes place and some of the novice guardian students and royals decide to take matters into their own hands. Will anyone receive their molnija marks before graduation? Can they handle this large task on their own? What powers manifest in these novice students? Guess you'll have to read to find out!! On to Shadow Kissed now!
This book is a part of my "Thankfully Reading Weekend" and also the Christmas Challenge!
