Rose Hathaway's got serious guy trouble. Her gorgeous tutor Dimitri has his eye on someone else, her friend Mason has a huge crush on her, she keeps getting stuck in her best friend Lissa's head while she's making out with her boyfriend, Christian.

Then a massive Strigoi attack puts St. Vladmir's on high alert, and the Academy crawls with Guardians-including the legendary Janine Hathaway...Rose's formidable, long-absent mother. The Strigoi are closing in, and the Academy's not taking any risks. This year, St. Vladmir's holiday ski trip is mandatory.

But the glittering winter landscape and the posh Idaho resort only provide the illusion of safety. When three students run away to strike back against the deadly Strigoi, Rose must join forces with Christian to rescue them. Only this time, Rose-and her heat-are in more danger than she ever could have imagined.

Frostbite is the second installement of the Vampire Academy Series. And is picks up pretty much where Vampire Academy finished. Having loved and got sucked (lol) into the first book. This one didn't grab me as much. For me its the weakest book in the series and just not up to the rests standards. Saying that there is plenty to enjoy and even more twists and turns that leave you aching for the next book.

In Frostbite, all the characters are back as well and some new and fresh ones. Rose is still her fiesty self and we get to watch the relationship between her and Dimitri change a little when Tasha (Christian's Aunt) is introduced. I really liked Tasha she is a strong independant woman who has lived a hard life but doesn't moan about it. As well Rose and Dimitri we have Rose and Mason. I adore Mason he is cute and head over heals in love with Rose. He is the boy next door and it a shame in a way that Rose didn't feel the same. We get to learn a little more about Christian and his back story its really interesting and I would loved to have read more about it. His relationship with Lissa gets more serious and they are always together and in way I didn't like that, Lissa wasnt really in much of the book and I really like her aswell.

As I said above this is the weakest in the series and I was going to give it a 3 star rating. However, I just couldn't bring myself to do it because of one factor and the only factor that made me fall in love. "Little Dhampir." Oh yes, Adrian Adrain Adrian. The lovely, funny, crazy and down right sexy Adrian gets introduced in this one and I really love him. He is my favourite character in the entire series.

Overall, Frostbite is a must read if you have read Vampire Academy but don't expect a mind blowing read. The story itself isn't up to much but there are some twist and turns that you don't see coming and they ending I cried cried cried so much. Im still (after reading this book so many times) undecided if its a good ending or not. You decide.
