Summary

Rose loves Dimitri, Dimitri might love Tasha, and Mason would die to be with Rose... It's winter break at St. Vladimir's, but Rose is feeling anything but festive. A massive Strigoi attack has put the school on high alert, and now the Academy's crawling with Guardians - including Rose's hard-hitting mother, Janine Hathaway. And if hand-to-hand combat with her mom wasn't bad enough, Rose's tutor Dimitri has his eye on someone else, her friend Mason's got a huge crush on her, and Rose keeps getting stuck in Lissa's head while she's making out with her boyfriend, Christian! The Strigoi are closing in, and the Academy's not taking any risks....This year, St. Vlad's annual holiday ski trip is mandatory.
But the glittering winter landscape and the posh Idaho resort only create the illusion of safety. When three friends run away in an offensive move against the deadly Strigoi, Rose must join forces with Christian to rescue them. But heroism rarely comes without a price...

love this

Ok so it is yet another vampire book and yes there is yet more forbidden love, but it is forbidden for different reasons and you don't have to worry about the main character going on and on about how he stops him self from killing her and how romantic is that.

This is a great series that i clocked the release dates of books in by diary i was that desperate to finish it

Great Book, Not So Great Narration.

Really enjoying the second installment of the Vampire Academy series. However, I have not enjoyed the narration. Pronunciations are different, even from beginning to end of this book. It took me several minutes to realize who a key character was when the narrator changed the pronunciation of her name midway through the book. I definitely prefer the narrator of the first book to this narrator.

I like the new narrator...

I almost didn't buy this one because of the negative review on the narrator but I really liked her. Sure, she pronounces some things differently and she could have put SOME accent in Dmitri's voice but her pronunciation is probably more accurate and the previous narrator needed to scale back her Russian accent. Plus, that whining voice was a little much.

Aside from the narrator, which is incredibly important in audiobooks, the story line was engaging and exciting with plenty of realism mixed in with the fantasy.

Remember, the genre is teen fantasy/sci-fi/paranormal, emphasis on teen. It's no Ann Rice but well worth the read..listen.
