But the glittering winter landscape and the posh Idaho resort only create the illusion of safety. I think this book definitely suffered from sequel syndrome and it did not intrigue and excite me like Vampire Academy did.
A couple other things happen toward the end of Frostbite that I felt were super cop-outs, but I see why they happened and how that could shape future books. With another John Green book and a new movie directed by Tim Burton, there are some seriously amazing 2015 young adult book to movie adaptation to be excited about! Note: The release dates are subject to change or the movie could be in the early stages and be canceled completely. These books turned into movies 2015 are in the works but their exact release date is yet to be determined. Normally, Kenneally’s stories deal with high school problems with an underlying layer that brings a touch of seriousness to the stories and keeps things grounded.
It seriously pains me to give this review: This is a Hundred Oaks book you could absolutely skip and be fine. The Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer of Peter the Great presents a reconstruction of the 18th century empress's life that covers such topics as her efforts to engage Russia in the cultural life of Europe, her creation of the Hermitage art collection and her numerous scandal-free romantic affairs. Catherine The Great: Empress of Russia Catherine II championed the ideas of the Enlightenment during her 34-year reign. November 5, 2011 • Biographer Robert Massie explains how Catherine II read books to escape the misery of her unhappy marriage. Note: Book excerpts are provided by the publisher and may contain language some find offensive. Chapter 1 a€” Sophia's Childhood Prince Christian Augustus of Anhalt-Zerbst was hardly distinguishable in the swarm of obscure, penurious noblemen who cluttered the landscape and society of politically fragmented eighteenth-century Germany.
When three friends run away in an offensive move against the deadly Strigoi, Rose must join forces with Christian to rescue them.
The fresh excitement and newness of the first book was washed away, and nothing too unexpected or surprising was revealed.
Other interests include Downton Abbey, heat lightning storms, Harry Potter land and (begrudingly) one orange tabby. I wish I had better advice for you but while I realllly liked Frostbite, I’m discovering a trend with the VA books and my feels for them. I’m retired however I have read books such as Maze runner series, Divergent Trilogy, All of Terry Brooks books, Horns, Anne McCaffrey books, Fault in our Stars just to name a few. And even if it comes out decent, they’re just redoing what Twilight did (*ugh) and people have already had ENOUGH of that. So when Maya Henry said she wanted to be a rock star, she never imagined she’d get to shadow *the* Jesse Scott, Nashville’s teen idol.


He’s as gorgeous as his music, but seeing all that he’s accomplished is just a reminder of everything Maya’s lost: her trust, her boyfriend, their band, and any chance to play the music she craves. I love the town all the books are set in, and I especially love the flawed but relatable characters.
Jesse’s Girl just fell flat in comparison and is definitely the weakest of the bunch.
It’s by far the fluffiest of the Hundred Oaks books and the romance does have an insta-quality to it, which I forgive because of the chemistry.
When she became empress in 1762, she championed the ideals of the French Enlightenment during her 34-year reign over Russia. Possessed neither of exceptional virtues nor alarming vices, Prince Christian exhibited the solid virtues of his Junker lineage: a stern sense of order, discipline, integrity, thrift, and piety, along with an unshakable lack of interest in gossip, intrigue, literature, and the wider world in general. 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. Although the immediate action is interesting, the middle part of the book lets things drag.
She’s constantly on the prowl for hot guys, BUT she balances that with learning responsibility and restraint. With Harry Potter, I knew there would eventually be a showdown with Voldemort, plus the story follows Harry’s 7-year school term. I wanted more from Frostbite, but am willing to give the third book Shadow Kiss a try before deciding on whether to continue the series or call it quits.
These books are all set in the same town and high school but in span different times and years. For writing her own songs and being what 17, 18 years old, her inner dialogue read as surprisingly immature. This one is actually up at 3rd place on my favorites list out of the Hundred Oaks books (Breathe Annie Breathe and Catching Jordan are my top two). Born in 1690, he had made a career as a professional soldier in the army of King Frederick William of Prussia. 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!
They can all be read independently of each other, yet have characters from previous books pop in once and awhile. His military service in campaigns against Sweden, France, and Austria was meticulously conscientious, but his exploits on the battlefield were unremarkable, and nothing occurred either to accelerate or retard his career. When peace came, the king, who was once heard to refer to his loyal officer as "that idiot, Zerbst," gave him command of an infantry regiment garrisoning the port of Stettin, recently acquired from Sweden, on the Baltic coast of Pomerania.
There, in 1727, Prince Christian, still a bachelor at thirty-seven, bowed to the pleas of his family and set himself to produce an heir.


Wearing his best blue uniform and his shining ceremonial sword, he married fifteen-year-old Princess Johanna Elizabeth of Holstein-Gottorp, whom he scarcely knew. His family, which had arranged the match with hers, was giddy with delight; not only did the line of Anhalt-Zerbst seem assured, but Johanna's family stood a rung above them on the ladder of rank. Because she was one of twelve children in a family that formed a minor branch of the ducal Holsteins, her father, the Lutheran bishop of LA?beck, had passed her along for upbringing to her godmother, the childless Duchess of Brunswick. Here, in the most sumptuously magnificent court in north Germany, she had become accustomed to a life of beautiful clothes, sophisticated company, balls, operas, concerts, fireworks, hunting parties, and constant, tittering gossip.
The best he could manage was a modest gray stone house on a cobbled street constantly swept by wind and rain. The walled fortress town of Stettin, overlooking a bleak northern sea and dominated by a rigid military atmosphere, was not a place where gaiety, graciousness, or any of the social refinements could flourish. And here, a lively young woman, fresh from the luxury and distractions of the court of Brunswick, was asked to exist on a tiny income with a puritanical husband who was devoted to soldiering, addicted to rigid economy, equipped to give orders but not to converse, and eager to see his wife succeed in the enterprise for which he had married her: the bearing of an heir. But always, underneath, she yearned to be free: free of her boring husband, free of their relative penury, free of the narrow, provincial world of Stettin.
She had dealt with her pregnancy by wrapping herself in dreams: that her children would grow into extensions of herself and that their lives eventually would supply the broad avenue on which she would travel to achieve her own ambitions. In these dreams, she took it for granted that the baby she was carrying-her firstborn-would be a son, an heir for his father, but more important a handsome and exceptional boy whose brilliant career she would guide and ultimately share.
Johanna and a more accepting Christian Augustus managed to give the baby a name, Sophia Augusta Fredericka, but from the beginning, Johanna could not find or express any maternal feeling. A second is that Johanna was still very young and her own bright ambitions in life were far from fulfilled. Ironically, although she could not know it then, the birth of this daughter was the crowning achievement of Johanna's life. Had the baby been the son she so passionately desired, and had he lived to adulthood, he would have succeeded his father as Prince of Anhalt-Zerbst.
Then the history of Russia would have been different and the small niche in history that Johanna Elizabeth earned for herself never would have existed. No part of this excerpt may be reproduced or reprinted without permission in writing from the publisher.
