Goodreads Synopsis:

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..


It’s winter break at St. Vladimir’s, and the students are going on a ski trip. The trip is mandatory for everyone this year, because of a Strigoi attack on one of the Royal families. A number of guardians are brought into the school, including Rose’s estranged mother. Rose is in a love triangle, which gets more complicated when the new guardians join the trip. When Rose gets a tip on where the dangerous Strigoi are hiding out, she can’t keep it to herself, leading to a dangerous trip across the country that not everyone will survive. 

This is a great sequel! I loved that the story is quite different from the first book and a complete story in itself. There were some intriguing new characters that I’m excited to get to know in the next books. Though it had a tragic ending, I’m looking forward to reading the next book. 

Frostbite is a captivating Vampire Academy story!
