Review: Frostbite by Richelle Mead

WHEN LOVE AND JEALOUSY COLLIDE ON THE SLOPES, WINTER BREAK TURNS DEADLY

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, and she keeps getting stuck in her best friend Lissa’s head while she’s making out with her boyfriend, Christian.

Then a massive Stigoi 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. Vlad’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 heart – are in more danger than she ever could have imagined…

I loved this book. I think that Richelle Mead has written a book that is for young adults, but doesn’t treat it as if it is for children. There is sex, foul language, and death. I think that this series is perfect for a high school aged person who can handle the various themes in a mature way. There were several times in this book where I was emotional. I was either holding my breath, sad, or laughing. I didn’t want to put it down. I even read through dinner so that I could finish the book. I have book 3 sitting on my tbr shelf, but I have heard there is a terrible cliffhanger. I think I’m going to wait for book 4 in August before I read book 3.
