Joint Review: Vampire Academy and Frostbite by Richelle Mead

Vampire Academy + Frostbite by Richelle Mead

Rating:  (3/5 Stars)

I went into the Vampire Academy series with very low expectations, and was pleasantly surprised when I really enjoyed reading the first book. The plot was compelling, I liked the characters, and I kept wanting to know what would happen next.

I found Rose and Lissa to be very pleasing main characters. I like how Rose is very confident about herself and how she looks. I don’t want to say that trait is rare in YA fiction, but it isn’t something I see very often in the narrating characters and it was a refreshing change.

The plot and the universe was very interesting, and fun to get to know. Having vampire subspecies was a lot more fun than just having vampires where most are evil but some decide to be nice and “vegan.”

Frostbite wasn’t as good as the first book, and parts of it were a bit boring. But the last six chapters or so were very exciting. While I hoped that it would be better than it was, it was still an enjoyable read.
