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....

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.

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

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.

Narrator is terrible

I love this book but they picked the worst narrator. She's not replaced until the 4th book and I'm not looking forward to hearing her cry baby voice for 2 books. If you can push through it's worth it!

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

Love the story, HATE the narrator

I love the Vampire Academy series. It has been a while since I read the books and thought I would listen to them on audio. MISTAKE! Rose is the lead character, a strong, tough young woman and every time she speaks she is the whiniest voice I ever hear. It completely detracts from the story because you just can't wait for her to stop talking. This is too good of a story for this horrible narration. The book really needs to be recorded by someone who can not only do justice to the book/series, but who will encapsulate the character of Rose and bring her character to life.

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.

Good story

The story itself is great, however they should have kept the same reader from the first book. This reader’s voice makes the characters sound cringy and a little whiny.

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.

why are good narrators so hard to come by

I love this series so muuuch. The narrator drove me slightly crazy with all the random changes of voices for one same character, but I have to admit she's so much better than the narrator for book 1. Also I'm pretty sure Mia is pronounced Meeah not Maya? that was irritating me to a point I nearly quit listening lol

Enjoyable, but slightly disappointed

If you were a fan of the Russian accent from the first book, be prepared to be disappointed. This narrator doesn't do accents, in fact I found it hard at times to automatically know which characters were speaking due lack of tonal range. I found it disappointing that all the make characters sound like girls and she made Rose sound more like a spoiled brat alot.
But I really do like the story.

Great story, so so narrating.

Love the story. The narrator didn't really give each character their own voice (unless she aimed for a whiny/bitchy/snarky tone) so it was at times difficult to keep track of which character was talking , especially when there were long dialogues.

Fascinating!

I admit that the second book was far more fascinating than the first. It even made me well up. I would have given a five star review if the narrator was as good as was the one from the first book.
