Frostbite (Vampire Academy #2) by Richelle Mead
Paperback, 328 pages
Published September 1st 2009 by Razorbill

It’s winter break at St Vladimir’s, and a massive Strigoi vampire attack has put the school on high alert. This year’s trip away from the academy to the wintery peaks of Idaho has suddenly become mandatory.

But Rose’s troubles seem to follow her wherever she goes—dealing with the pain of knowing that her relationship with her tutor Dimitri can never be, things get even more complicated when one her closest friends admits his feelings for her.

The glittering winter landscape may create the illusion of safety but Rose—and her heart—are in more danger than she ever could have imagined...

Chapter 11-15

| As always beware for the spoilers if you haven't read the book yet. |

Chapter 11:

Big stuff is starting to happen here. Chapter eleven starts with Rose watching Tasha teach Lissa and Christian offensive magic. After that Rose was kinda rude to Tasha because she's jealous about the whole Dimitri thing. Aside all that not much major happened except at the end the news was delivered that there was another Strigoi attack.

Chapter 12:

The chapter starts pretty much with the guardians discussing the new attack. Rose finds out Mia's mom is killed. I feel bad for Mia for this. The only good thing coming from it is that at this point Mia starts changing in a better way. Next up is some sort of meeting with Moroi and guardians discussing what should happen now. While some woman thinks they should let the dhampirs fight when they are only 16, Tasha starts talking about fighting with magic and even shows them some fire power. Pretty kickass but it's not well received...

Chapter 13:

When everything turned to chaos, Rose left and has a discussion with Dimitri about Tasha. More like an argument, really. They both said some things and I don't know, it makes me kinda laugh because I know everything will turn out okay... eventually. So Rose leaves with Adrian (*fangirl squeal*) to make Dimitri jealous. Adrian invites Rose and Lissa to some sort of pool party and they bring the rest of the gang too. There they talk about going after the Strigoi, which is stupid. Even Rose sees it. Le sigh.

Chapter 14:

And then Rose walks into a fight. lol. Mason got into it too but nothing much happened there. Or in this chapter in total, I think. Aside from Adrian being in it and making me swoon.

Chapter 15:

The next morning, Rose receives a bunch of perfume from, yes, Adrian! It's one of my favorite scenes. I love how Adrian tried to get her attention by buying her stuff. It's all so easy for him. I also loved the "show down" with Adrian, Rose, Dimitri and Lissa where Adrian gets a little Spirit-crazy. Of course they don't know it's the spirit causing that but we all do. These moments make me kinda sad, thinking about it. There's not a lot happening for me after that. Maybe I just tune out when Adrian isn't there but whatever. Oh yeah, Rose and Mason start making out heavily but Rose stops it because she kept thinking about Dimitri. I feel really bad for Mason because of it but also for Rose. What a mess!

Any thoughts on these chapters and post?
Let me know!

  1. I find it amusing that Tasha doesn't pick up on Rose's rudeness. I think Rose handles Mia very well even when things get a bit tense after Rose tries to speak to Mia and offer her condolences. I felt really bad for Mason and totally loved having Adrian around *fangirl tee hee*

    Great post once again Steph!! Loving the re-read :)
