Frostbite - Richelle Mead After reading the first book, I was hesitant to continue the series. But thanks to a handful of secondary characters and friends telling me that it gets better, I went ahead and read the second. It was much better than I anticipated. I found Rose slightly more likeable her. However, I still think that Lissa is a very unlikeable character. There is nothing interesting about her. To me, the story still rests strongly on its background characters
