Lissa Dragomir is a Moroi princess: a mortal vampire with a rare gift for harnessing the earth's magic. She must be protected at all times from Strigoi; the fiercest vampires - the ones who never die. The powerful blend of human and vampire blood that flows through Rose Hathaway, Lissa's best friend, makes her a dhampir. Rose is dedicated to a dangerous life of protecting Lissa from the Strigoi, who are hell-bent on making Lissa one of them.
Rose has serious guy trouble. Her gorgeous tutor, Dimitri, has his eye on someone else, her friend Mason has a huge crush on her, and she keeps getting stuck in her best friend Lissa's head while she's making out with her boyfriend, Christian.
Then a nearby Strigoi attack puts St. Vladimir's on high alert, and the Academy whisks its students away on a mandatory holiday ski trip. But the glittering winter landscape and 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 heart - are in more danger than she ever could have imagined...
This book was so entertaining. Especially Rose and Adrian. Adrian basically made this entire book. Scratch that- the entire series. He's one of my favorite characters ever. I don't know, he's just great. Instead of making this entire review me fangirling over Adrian, let's actually talk about the book.
I really didn't expect to like this series. Almost everyone I've talked to about it has not liked it. It's like the entire book community either loves it or hates it. There is no in between. Personally, I loved it. Rose's snark was definitely included more in this book. But, the thing I love about her is how even though she seems like she can't take anything seriously, she really can. This is proven when she has to go rescue her friends.
I honestly had no idea what would happen next while reading this, especially at the end. That is something that I enjoyed because even though I love them, lots of YA books are predictable. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. Given, it's not the most well-written book but, it is very entertaining and I highly recommend picking it up.
