Every once and a while I make smart decisions. I know…they are few and far between, but luckily this time I listened to my gut and not my head!
If you remember correctly I was pretty confused by “Vampire Academy” (yes… I know… it was so horribly long ago, you may need to go back and do some research.) I didn’t think it was bad exactly just confusing and drawn out.
Well, as confused as I was by the 1st book, I was equally as impressed by the 2nd.
“Frostbite” was well written. Mead finally stuck to her guns, and train of thought, and wrote a fluid book from start to finish. (Thank God. I really wanted to like this series after all the hype I was hearing.)
In this chapter the characters were forced to look into their inner demons, face the music, see what was right in front of them. The process in which they did this was spectacular. There was a Strigoi raid, an impromptu Christmas Ski Trip, a mysterious but sexy new Royal, and a drunk Dhampir hot tub scene.
Hasty decisions was the name of the game for this book, and in true heroin form, Rose jump right in head first. I don’t think however that she had planned on the torture or untimely death of a pretty important character. I know I didn’t see it coming. As a matter of fact, it made me a little sad. (I think my eyes may have even watered)
Regardless, I enjoyed the book and I think it was a great way to get me, almost reluctantly, sucked into the series. I can’t wait to see the decisions this group will make when they are face with even more life changing events. And…a few more hot Dimitri scenes wouldn’t be bad either.
Happy reading my “little Dhampires” and remember…it is a wise decision to sharpen your swords at least once a month…just in case.
