The drama and romance continue in this 144-page full-color graphic novel adaptation of the second Vampire Academy novel, Frostbite, which was overseen by Richelle Mead and features beautiful art by acclaimed British illustrator Emma Vieceli.
Oh man. I do not know why I do this to myself. I just love this series and reading the graphic novels makes me want to read all of the books all over again. So far I am really enjoying the graphic novels but they only cover some of the most important things to move the story along quickly. I miss all the in between stuff and even though I got to see it happening I feel like I can experience it all better as I read it.
With only 144 pages a lot has to be condensed but I feel like they do a good job deciding what they keep and decide to show. I don’t want to go into detail on what they included since I know some people might just be reading the graphic novels and have not read the books. It was really nice getting to see the new characters come in to this one. My favorite? Adrian of course. I was totally looking forward to getting to see him. The introduction to Rose’s mother and Christian’s aunt was also great. I think all the characters were drawn pretty well. I wasn’t disappointed in any of them.
I think everything was done well. The scenes I knew were coming up hit me the way I thought they would. Just like the first one it was a great and fast way to get into the series again. I am really looking forward to see how the rest of the series will turn out
