Publisher's Summary

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....

Great story terrible reading

I loved the story line and the 2nd chapter to the series. Howevern the reader did not convey the proper emotions for the story. For example, something would be said in an excited voice when it was supposed to be mumbled. It was completely off from what it should be

the story is great the narrator not so much

when the narrator started to call Mia Maya my stomach turned.. it was hard to hear it every time. but the book is great, i have read it like 4 times already, 1st time listening. i hope they will re do it with a different narrator.

Hvam is a downgrade from the narration of book 1

Despite the horrible voicing and distracting over-diction of this narrator; i still managed to enjoy this audible. It is nice to listen to books I have already read the old fashioned way.

Occasional mistakes

Narrator confused Mia Rinaldi's name and called her MAYA. Starting when Rose meets Adrienne Ivashkov.

the reader really soured the experience

the readers voice was so different than that of the first book and it was really hard to get over at first. also, she made rose sound like a braty 12 year old and Dimitri suddenly didnt have a Russian accent

Great

I loved this book and the narrator does a great job of getting the emotions of the characters across. I only wish sh had at least tried with the accents Dimitri and Adrian feel only half themselves without it.

Narrator

The Narrator is really my only complaint. She never really changes her voice and pitch between characters and constantly kept changing the pronunciation for Mia. One chapter she pronounces it Me-uh. The next chapter she pronounces it My-uh. She could definitely take some lessons from Peter Kenny, the guy who narrates the Witcher books by Andrej Sopkowski

Great follow up to the first book!

The storyline continues to be great, but there were a few things that kind of caught me off guard names, voices, interactions between characters... it was like the author forgot what she wrote in the first book. But! Overall it was a great second book!

The narrator keeps changing.

I don’t like it the changing narrator cause it messes with my perception of Rose. At least this girl pronounced moroi and dhampir correctly.

Love the story. Didn't like the voices.

I have read this book many times. It was nice to hear it in audible. However, I didn't like Roses voice. The other characters were fine but for some reason I just didn't like her voice I kind of just put up with it
