Again, another great book!
In Frostbite we're again seeing things from Rose's perspective. At the beginning of Frostbite Rose is going to see a special Guardian, who will mark her skills as a Guardian in training, the people who look after Moroi.
However when she and her mentor, and crush Dimitri get to the place where the teacher works they see death and destruction. Evil Strigoi vampires have been there and killed the vampire family, as well as the Guardians who lived there.
This event then puts the rest of the story into place as the students and teachers of St Vladimir's Academy go to a resort for the winter months to try to avoid danger of future Strigoi attacks. At this resort Rose meets a new Moroi guy called Adrian. Adrian annoyed me, I've got to say. I wish he hadn't been in the book. He does sort of help at the end and is a help to Lissa in future books I believe, but I could have done without him.
Rose and Dimitri don't really have that many scenes together apart from at the beginning of the book, which was a shame I thought. Dimitri is off trying to forget Rose by being with another woman.
Richelle Mead has another spectacular ending in this book. I was literally on the edge of my seat reading it, there were twists and turns that I didn't expect. The ending was definitely the best part of this story.
I liked this book almost as much as the first. This one probably does get a 3.75 star rating from me. I wish it had had more Rose and Dimitri scenes, and less Adrian but the story and emotions that Rose goes through are told well. The last 150 or so pages really sells this book though, at least for me.
