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 Review: This book was so........ ah! I got mad, sad, and hot so many times that reading this book was just really a emotional haze in my memory. It's just so whoa. Read it and you will understand.
Excerpt: " Belikov is a sick, evil man who should be thrown into a pit of rabid vipers for the great offense he committed against you this morning." "Thank you." I said primly. Then, I considered. "Can vipers be rabid?" "I don't see why not. Everything can be. I think." He held the hallway door open for me. "Canadian geese might be worse than vipers, though." I gave him a sidelong look. "Canadian geese are deadlier than vipers?" "You ever tried to feed one of those bastards?" he asked, attempting seriousness and failing. "They're vicious. You get thrown to vipers, you die quickly. But the geese? That'll go on for days. More suffering." ~ pg. 46-47
Cover/Title: The girl is Lissa but Richelle even admits she doesn't know who the guy is other than it is a Strigoi. The title fits beautifully because it's winter break and all.
