I really enjoyed this graphic novel, more then the first once! I do love these stories due to the hilarity they posses! Rose is just a brilliant character!
I also love the fact she is depicted as curvy and muscly in these! Promoting healthy weight, not your typical skinny disney princess figure!

This was my first graphic novel and I really enjoyed it! The artwork was a little odd at times, but it was a quick read and a nice refresher of Frostbite. I would love to read more graphic novels in the future :D

Please excuse the blurriness because I took the pics with a phone so they're not the best quality. I just wanted to share the Dimka/Adrian love with my co-fans of the lovely, lovely Richelle Mead.

The graphic novel version of VA should only be read by people who have read the full-length print books first, or else you might get confused somewhat about the story because it's very condensed and a few details are skipped around on. But hot damn, these are fun reads if you've already devoured the boo

Ohmygoodness! Tears of joy. Tears of joy.
Friggin April? For real?
Haha, I'm just sooo glad that they're making not only just the first book into a graphic novel, but the WHOLE SERIES :D
I have no idea how I'm gonna wait when they start making the graphic novel for the THRID book. Which is kinda sorta probably like my favorite book in the series. All the action and what-not ;D
But the worst part is the end. Which I will prolly cry yet again when it comes.

Ok so I completely enjoyed this graphic more so then the first one!! I feel like we get more out of the story and it is all blended very well together, making each transition smoother...with a graphic novel I have so far noticed that if the transition between scenes isn't smooth it doesn't work well.

I'm glad again they stuck to the story, showcasing all the important parts, while showing us the kind of girl Rose is and how awesome she really is.

And btw they made Adrian look so hot I these haha,
Sadly they cut a lot out, but that was to be expected. Beautifully rendered, although at times i was left criticising the artists work. WHO HAS THEIR EYES HALF WAY UP THEIR FOREHEADS?! It was like they just didn't bother.

How did I miss this? The cover looks bad-ass! Go Rose and Christian!

Finally I got it! It took me so so so soooo long (over 8 months) but I finally received it. It's not surprising that I am so excited about this graphic novel because finally we could see ADRIAN IVASHKOV in it! Adrian Bubble

I love graphic novels and this one was no exception. There are some graphic novels that are just crap but I really love the Vampire Academy ones. The art is amazing and also rereading the story in great. The one thing I love about graphic novels is how you can read it in les

Adrian was in this one. I love him. He totally redeems this series for me. And can I just say, he's drawn quite handsomely.

Adrian aside, these graphic novels aren't horrible. It's nice to have a visual to go along with the books. I will say that I don't find Lissa beautiful like how she's described in the books. These are pure fun. That's pretty much it.

They are making me enjoy the series a little more. Not quite sure why lol.
Najlepšie na týchto grafických novelách je to, že ich môžete čítať s niekým súčasne... a keď je ten niekto rovnako zbláznený a "na prášky" do Vampire Academy ako ja, tak ten zážitok stojí za to!!! No a tá ilustrácia...NO COMMENT!!! :DDDDDD
Tak toto som dala rýchlejšie než kedysi Bravo Girl...Ale stálo to za to :) Mimochodom naša večná dilema vyriešená - Eddie je blond! Teraz by ma ešte zaujímalo, kto je ten brunet na obálke k Indigo Spell...

The Graphic Novel book two is action packed. The characters are looking over their shoulders for Strigoi, (Which I have to add is amazingly drawn.) This plot is well thought out and planed. I enjoyed the art and helped bring the story to life. My favorite part of this book would have to be how the characters relationships develop and grow. My favorite relationship is Dimitri and Rose and their forbidden love. I like their playful, witty conversation.
Lissa and Christian relationship is so cute.

These graphic novels can be read by both those who've read the series and those who haven't. Leigh Dragoon made sure that the essence of Frostbite is in the pages of the graphic novel. The book starts off with a run down of the key players of the story. Then we move onto the story itself and all the extra filler that's not really important is removed. So, in the end we get the heart of the story. Not to mention the artwork that Emma Vieceli did is amazing. It's really great seeing the characters ...more

When you love a series as much as I did with the Vampire Academy, I will look for anything to revisit the characters again. Also, since I am starting to read more graphic novels lately, this book was able to fill both needs at one time.

While the book does not go as in depth as the books do, they are a good refresher book to help you remember things that happened in the actual novels. While we refresh our memories through this book, we also get some amazing artwork that helps bring the characters

OH.MY.GOD!!! I loved this graphic novel! Even though FROSTBITE is not my favorite book of the VA series, I definitely thought that Mead, Dragoon and Viceli really upped their game in the second book of this graphic novel series. I’ll break it down into parts so it’s a little clearer…

The cover features Rose and Christian front and center, surrounded by those red-eyed Strigoi! Rose is definitely looking badass and Christian – *sigh* I love Christian – is looking
The graphic novel adaptation of Richelle Mead’s popular vampire series tells the story of 17-year old Rose Hathaway, a half-human mortal in training to become one of the select bodyguards who protect vampire royalty. Vampire races are divided into three sects, the evil, bloodthirsty Strigoi; the Moroi, magical vampires who only use violence in defense; and Dhampirs – like Rose – half-moroi who train at Vladimir’s Academy to serve as defenders. Rose hopes to graduate in order to protect her best ...more
The graphic novel of Frosbite completed with colorful illustrations and a satisfying storyline proves to be an enjoyable, quick read (Hence, I devoured Frosbite in one sitting in 1 hour). I'd definitely recommend this graphic novel of Frosbite to readers who has already read Frosbite throroughly before trying to read this novel first. This graphic novel delineates many of the main significant scenes of Frosbite, but lacks some of the other events which might caused readers to stumble a bit.

As I said in my first review, there isn't much I can say on this book as it is the second book of the original series just in picture form, so for me the story is all there and set out wonderfully.

The only flaw in this otherwise beautiful representation of a great book is that it skipped over scenes quite quickly. I understand it is a graphic novel and it can't be 400 pages long like your average book but I think some parts needed to be extended just that little bit. That is where the denominati
Tilly Currer (Hardcore Heroines)
I really liked it, and thought it got the whole gist of Vampire Academy. However, with the graphic novel, you miss certain funny back and forth, or entire conversations that simply make the book. It's harder to empathize with Rose, because you don't fully get immersed into her thoughts.Yet, I think that's simply because it's a graphic novel and you can't cram it full, it just needs the important bits. Leigh Dragoon adapted it very well, and the witty thoughts are still there, making me laugh. It ...more

The storyline moved a little fast but then maybe that's the way it happens in graphic novel. It was my first graphic novel, and I just read the final fight 'cause that's where I had left the novel.

But on any case, they had perfectly depicted Rose, Dimitri, Lisa or almost any other character. Though the strigois looked kinda funny and too unrealistic, they did an amazing work with Adrian freaking Ivashkov!
I was already in love with that guy after the series, and watching him the beautiful aura,

I AM SO EXCITED! I ordered it off of Amazon a few days ago and it should be here within the week! I am totally obsessed with this series, and I know, I know for a fact, that this graphic novel will be just as awesome as the first one! :D I can hardly wait for the movie in 2013, but still, even then, I am going to be criticizing it so much because of how many times I've read the book, and the book series in general. However, as soon it's out, I'm going to go ape and buy tickets. I am so excited! ...more
Rose may have saved Lissa’s life in Vampire Academy but there are more threats on the Moroi Princess’ life. With the entire vampire world on guard, the school sends students to a luxury ski resort to try to keep them safe. Whilst St. Vladamir’s might be trying to protect their students it seems that trouble always seems to find Rose and her friends. With fantastic new characters and all the old favourites, Frostbite picks up right where Vampire Academy ended and continues with a lot of action an ...more

I pretty much felt the same way about this volume as I did about volume one. It was so much fun revisiting one of my favorite series in graphic novel form, but I was a little sad about how much is missing. I understand that this is a graphic novel but the story is EXTREMELY ABBREVIATED, so much so that at some parts I feel like someone who hadn't read the actual books would have no idea what was going on. A lot of the kick assery was missing as well, and it was mostly just romance (which I can't ...more
Mason getting killed was more horrific in the book than actually seeing it drawn out.

Το δεύτερο τεύχος της σειράς των novels συνεχίζει στο μοτίβο που προτίμησε στο 1ο τεύχος και επί της ουσίας, το αποτέλεσμα είναι παρόμοιο, με την διαφορεά ότι η ίδια η ιστορία αρχίζει να αποκτάει περισσότερο ενδιαφέρον, κάτι που ενισχύει αυτόματα και την αποτύπωση των εικόνων στο χαρτί.
Danielle (is trying to escape reality)
This one, just like the actual series, gets alot better. I still do not like the artwork of these much, but there was an actual explanation of the world in this one and the story itself is much more interesting.
Again, fans of the series should definitely check these out! They give a minds eye to what you are reading.
