Book Of The Week Review: Frostbite
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...
Now I know what some of you are thinking, am I going to do a review on every book in this series continually week after week? My answer is no. I understand that some of you do not like this series and it is not fair to you guys. I do plan on continuing with this series, but spacing it out so I can review different books for you guys. Now since that is out of the way on to the review. I really enjoyed this book, I loved that it took place at a ski lodge, it was great to read while curled up with a blanket while it snowed. I FINALLY felt connected and invested in the characters. Like the good reads description shows Rose's mother comes in to the picture, and I loved this because it helped us learn more about Rose. Rose definitely grew on me during this book, and even though at times she still got on my nerves she is growing up and it is nice to watch. The relationship drama is to the max, but in a real way. I did not feel like the relationship part seemed cheesy or fake. This book had a shock and instance start and it did not stop till the last page. There were some parts that had me rolling my eyes, and also a few big problems that happened in book one that were not addressed in Frostbite, they were not even mentioned so that was frustrating. I do not want to give you too many details, but to me this was a good book and I do recommend it. The good out weighed the annoying parts in this book. This book left me with all kinds of feels and I cannot wait to see what the third book has in store. If you decide to read the book let me know, and if you have read the book already stay tuned for the video full of spoilers =)
