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…
My thoughts: Dealing with a estranged mother I'm sure is difficult. But when your mother gives you a black eye...Oh my! Poor Rose and.....Hello Janine
I'm truly happy that Lissa is in love and although Christian seems rough around the edges, which I know is because of dealing with the things from his past. I'm glad though that with Lissa he isn't mean. He's seems to be really good for her.
His aunt on the other hand can go away! I know she isn't purposely taking Dimitri away but to Rose (whose in love with him)it hurts and I can't even imagine the jealousy that Rose feels. For the history that Tasha and Dimitri have who knows what could happen.
YAY! Rose got her first 2 Strigoi killings, even though she lost a great friend,Mason. She should celebrate...It's not easy to kill those evil creatures. And although she doesn't have her promise mark she now has two cool molnija marks.
I can't believe that Mason was dumb enough to be led out into the open world by Mia to hunt down Strigoi who killed her family. Then ROse and Christian follow and they all get kidnapped and in trying to escape sure Rose kills 2 but not before they kill Mason.
