Book Review: Frostbite, by Richelle Mead

It's been quite a while since I read Vampire Academy, but I had no problem slipping back into Mead's world in Frostbite. The characters and vampire lore are so memorable that the story has stuck with me, and Mead does a good job filling in some of the blanks in an unobtrusive way.

Rose needs to take a test to complete her training to be a bodyguard for Lissa. Dimitri takes her to the Dhampir guardian who will do the testing. But when they get there, they find a massacre. Both Moroi and their guardians have been killed. The Strigoi are the culprits, but it's obvious that they must have had assistance from humans.

The Moroi and their guardians are panicked. It's Christmastime and rather than send everyone home, they decide to send them to a well-guarded Moroi ski lodge.

Rose tries to start a love triangle, but, well, I won't say any more. She still has it bad for Dimitri. She also learns things about her mom and Dmitri that change her opinions of them.

The culminating dangerous situation the guardians-in-training find themselves in is thrilling and exciting.

I don't know what else to say about Frostbite. The characters grow, we get to know more about the world, and it's a page turner. If you haven't started The Vampire Academy series, you should believe all the good stuff you've read about these books, and give it a try.
