Rating: 5 stars
Date Read: 4th January, 2012
Date Published: 1st October, 2009
Blurb: Rose Hathaway's got serious guy trouble. Her gorgeous tutor Dimitri has his eye on someone else, her friend Mason has a huge crush on her, she keeps getting stuck in her best friend Lissa's head while she's making out with her boyfriend, Christian.
Then a massive Strigoi attack puts St. Vladmir's on high alert, and the Academy crawls with Guardians-including the legendary Janine Hathaway...Rose's formidable, long-absent mother. The Strigoi are closing in, and the Academy's not taking any risks. This year, St. Vladmir's holiday ski trip is mandatory.
But the glittering winter landscape and the posh Idaho resort only provide the illusion of safety. When three students run away to strike back against the deadly Strigoi, Rose must join forces with Christian to rescue them. Only this time, Rose-and her heat-are in more danger than she ever could have imagined.

Review: I honestly didn’t think this series could get any better. But it did and I enjoyed it even more than I did the first one. Everything was so much better and I can honestly say that already this is one of my favourite series. I am flying through this series. I read the first book in three sittings and this one in two. I’m just devouring and I’m loving the delicious taste it is leaving inside my mind.

The story picks up where Vampire Academy left us. Rose and Lissa are at the academy still and Lissa has even found love in Christian. But things aren’t going so well for Rose as she is still in love with her mentor/tutor Dimitri. But when a strigoi attack panics everyone, St. Vladimir sends its students to a ski resort. But there is drama on the slopes. Rose is having a lot of problems. Her friend Mason likes her, her mom unexpectedly enters her life and Dimitri seems to have his eye on someone else. But when Mason and two fellow students go missing off the ski resort, Rose takes things into her own hands. She has to find then and gets help from Christian. They’re in danger.

This series is so addictive. I put in down for a few minutes and I am eager to get into it straight away when I pick it up again. I’m so glad I ordered the last three because I have a feeling I wont be able to stop until I have read them all. It has everything I love. Vampires, humour, forbidden romance, hot guys, suspense and action. I get sucked into the world of this book and it’s hard to get out.

As always the characters are great. Rose is growing up in this novel and I look forward to seeing up grow in the rest of the series. Lissa wasn’t in this as much as the last one but I didn’t mind. As long as I got my healthy dose of Dimitri I was good. And boy did I get what I wanted. I find myself falling more in love with him as the series goes on. And that ending....SO SWEET!!! I love him so much and I hope things get even better with him and Rose. But there’s also Adrian, a new character we are introduced to, and he’s interesting as well. I’ll have to see about him though. But he seems like a good guy and I feel a love triangle in the making.

This series is amazing and I am so happy that I am finally reading it. I can’t wait to read the rest and I know that it will only get better.
