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...
From reading this series countless times, I have found that each time I read a book from this series for another time, I have a new appreciation for the book and just how great this series really is and for how talented Richelle Mead is as an author. The plot and the characters are written flawlessly and there is a great balance between the supernatural and reality which Richelle Mead does so well and what I love about her writting. I thought that the plot was amazing in this book and it had a lot of suspense and adventure in it. I also loved how in the book we get to see more of the Strigoi and how they actually react and interact with each other. I also love how we get to see the relationship between Rose and Dimitri develop. Another thing that I really like about this book is the character of Adrian, I really liked his attitude and I thought he was a great charcter to have added into the series.
Overall I thought that this book was really good and is a great edition to the series.
