Review: Frostbite (Vampire Academy #2) by Richelle Mead

Frostbite: A Vampire Academy Novel
Rating: 4 out of 5
Frostbite: A Vampire Academy Novel
Summary: Rose is still trying to catch up with her training since she took Lissa and ran off in an attempt to protect her from those that wished to steal her powers and harm her. However, a new threat has appeared, Strigoi are off killing Moroi and their guardians. The worst thing about this situation? Strigoi have managed to find a group of humans to work with. When Rose's mentor Dimitri confides in her about the supposed whereabouts of the Strigoi and human clan are laying low, she confides in Mason her almost boyfriend. When her friends run off in an attempt to get vengeance for Mia, they are taken prisoner. This is the perfect chance for Rose to step up and prove to everyone that she can think and act like a guardian; especially her mother.

My thoughts: I feel like this book was a lot better and flowed more smoothly than the last book. Rose's character doesn't annoy me nearly as much as she did before. She seems to have grown a lot between the first and second novel which I think is great. Before, she was way too full of herself. Now she's starting to act a bit more mature and she doesn't think of herself as much of a goddess in this book, although those moments tend to pop up every now and then.

I found this one really hard to put down. I liked seeing the characters in another place, away from school. It was interesting to see how everyone interacted with each other, and to just be a teenager for a moment, doing things they should be instead of worrying about protecting other people. And of course, there are no shortages of love triangles in this book. Rose falls for one guy and still has feelings for Dimitri. So if you really like that aspect of YA fiction then you'll be happy to know it exists within this book. All in all, this was a great follow up to the first and I plan on finishing the series.
