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 hand-to-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…

5 out of 5 stars


I love the Vampire Academy world Richelle Mead has created. It’s so different from anything I’ve ever read and I love the world. They live at the Vampire Academy boarding school where they learn to fight Strigoi, evil “dead” vampires. The guardians train to save the Moroi, pure blood vampires.There are the twelve royal families and they have the most protection. In this book there are Strigoi attacks at the beginning, so they go to an elite vampire ski resort and spend all of holiday at the resort. I loved the resort setting and this one was so good. I liked this one even more than Vampire Academy.


Rose is one of my favorite characters because she’s so sassy and she always has witty remarks. I love the relationship between Rose and Dimitri. I love that Rose loves Dimitri so much and get get over him. Dimitri loves her too and it’s even better because it’s “forbidden”. Lissa and Christian are a cute couple but I don’t really like Christian’s attitude.It’s cool that he knows how to use his magic and I can’t wait to see them when they can all use their powers. Lissa is the Moroi that Rose protects and is also Rose’s best friend. I like Lissa more in this one because she isn’t depressed all the time, but because of the medication she is on, she can’t use her magic. Lissa is a really nice best friend character for Rose though. She lightens the mood because she’s kind of ditzy and Rose is always sarcastic or serious.

Who Would I Be?:

I would be Rose because I love how sassy she is. I love all her remarks that she comes up with and I really love everything about her. I would also love Dimitri to have a crush on me because he’s yet another book crush… *sigh*
