Frostbite, the second novel in Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy series, was even better than the first book. After a mysterious strigoi attack threatens the protections surrounding St. Vladimir's Academy, the student body takes a trip to a ski lodge. On the trip, controversy arises among the moroi, and Rose is held hostage by a group of strigoi.
I loved how this book took on a darker tone than the last one, focusing more on serious issues instead of high school drama. Additionally, I enjoyed how Rose developed in this novel; she became less naive while still maintaining her fiery and confident demeanor.
