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, and she keeps getting stuck in her best friends 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. Vlad'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 heart - are in more danger than she ever could have imagined . . .

Richelle Mead

Richelle Mead is an international bestselling author of over twenty-five books for both adults and teens. Her Georgina Kincaid and Dark Swan series take a witty but edgy look at the paranormal while her sci-fi Age of X series shows us a future with no religion.

Over on the young adult side, Richelle has written the much-acclaimed Vampire Academy series and its spin-off, Bloodlines, about a secret society keeping the vampire world hidden from humans. Her latest project, The Glittering Court, takes place in a fantasy world inspired by colonial America, following the adventures of three impoverished girls trained up to be "ladies" who can make advantageous marriages in a dangerous new world across the sea.

Richelle's books have been on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists and received honors from the American Library Association. Her books have been translated into over two dozen languages, as well as adapted into graphic novels. In 2014, Vampire Academy was made into a feature film. A lifelong reader, Richelle loves mythology and wacky humor. When not writing, she can be found spending time with her family, buying dresses, and watching bad reality TV.

  • A great follow up

    by on

    Uncovering spirit, unexpected strigoi attacks, and the untimely death of friends. This book has a lot of emotion and hard times in it.

    Rose is battling her emotions and feeling with Dimitri, Lissa is trying to learn about spirit and get help from the much talked about Adrian Ivashkov.

    It carries the story well from Vampire Academy, you get to see a lot more action from the novices in regards to their training and slipping off to hunt a group of strigoi that seem to be targeting royal families.

    Loved this book, Shadow Kissed is next up on my list.

    In this book after a spout of vicious Strigoi attacks, their school books out a lush ski resort for all students to attend Winter break. Here, you are introduced to more lovable characters, including, Adrian Ivashkov.

    Rose has alot to figure out during their times on the slopes, from her loyalty to her heart and keeping secrets.
