Once bitten twice shy
After the first book I went straight into the second book. In this novel we meet Rose's mother and more students at the academy. After a tough reunion with her mother Rose and friends go on a trip to a ski resort where everything breaks down. After losing a loved one it's all about survival as Rose and friends fight to survive against a strigoi attack which leads Rose to make an important first. Really entertaining and worth the money spent.
An Excellent Sequel!
This is a great second instalment to the Vampire Academy series. Fans of the first book will not be disappointed. This book has twice the romance and action that was in the first book making it an even more exciting and enjoyable read, not to mention the continuous thrilling events and surprises that keep you immersed in story. Readers learn more about the characters and their powers as this sequel unfolds. I recommend this to people who have a love for supernatural/fantasy novels.
