Release Date: April 10th, 2008
Age Group: Young Adult
Rose loves Dimitri, Dimitri might love Tasha, and Mason would die to be with Rose...Richelle Mead did not disappoint in her sequel to Vampire Academy. The story picks up almost immediately where the first one left off, throwing the reader right back into the action. It was intense and nerve racking, and yet loving and exciting at the same time.
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 handto- 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...
The characters are even more loveable. Rose becomes the instant heroine yet again and it is not because her life is so simple. You simply want her to have the best and yet trouble is never far behind for her. I was extremely frustrated at points with Dimitri when things did not go the way I wanted it to between them.
However, I was not disappointed with the ending and it only left me wanting more. It is too much to wait for books to come out and makes me extremely exasperated when others get to read them first.
Can’t wait for the others!
