Rose loves Dimitri, Dimitri might love Tasha, and Mason would die to be with Rose... 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...



My Thoughts

Green swirlsReally enjoyed this one!  The characters since first meeting them has grown on me more and more.  I have completely fallen in love not just with Dimitri, but Christian!  I love how Richelle Mead is working Rose & her mother’s relationship into the storyline.  I think it’s a very important part of who Rose IS and I was hoping we got to hear more about it and we did.   I love how Lissa’s character is finding more about herself.  My only regret with her is that I wish she would grow a bit more of a backbone, but I think she’s working her way up to that.  You see bits and pieces of it coming through.  I love the new character that was introduced, Adrian.  I think he’s going to add a great twist to the series.  I also liked what the author did with the Mia character.  I won’t go into detail in case I ruin it for some people, but I loved it!  Did I already say I loved Dimitri??   Yes, indeed!  I loved this book!  Great read!
