~+*+~ PROLOGUE ~+*+~

"Things die. but they don't always stay dead. Believe me, I know."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

"I tend to punch first and then find out who I actually hit later."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

"He's hot—like, the kind of hot that makes you stop walking on the street and get hit by traffic."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

"By the way, my name's Rose Hathaway. I'm seventeen years old, training to protect and kill vampires, in love with a completely unsuitable guy, and have a best friend whose weird magic could drive her crazy."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

~+*+~ CHAPTER ONE ~+*+~

"I didn't think my day could get any worse until my best friend told me she might be going crazy. Again."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

Rose: "How far away is it?" 
- Silently, I begged for it to be a really long drive. Like, one that would take a week. And would involve us staying overnight in luxury hotels. Maybe we'd get stranded in a snowbank, and only body heat would keep us alive. -
Dimitri: "Five hours."
Rose: "Oh."
- Rose Hathaway and Dimitri Belikov (Frostbite)

Rose: "You know what would really help?"
Dimitri: "Hmm?"
Rose: "If you turned off this crap music and put on something that came out after the Berlin Wall went down."
Dimitri: "Your worst class is history, yet somehow, you know everything about Eastern Europe."
Rose: "Hey, gotta have material for my jokes, Comrade."
- Still smiling, he turned the radio dial. To a country station. -
Rose: "Hey! This isn't what I had in mind,"
Dimitri: "Pick. It's one or the other."
Rose: "Go back to the 1980’s stuff."
- He flipped the dial, and I crossed my arms over my chest as some vaguely European-sounding band sang about how video had killed the radio star. I wished someone would kill this radio. 
- Rose Hathaway and Dimitri Belikov (Frostbite)

"Strigoi couldn't be out in sunlight. I didn't need to fear them, only Dimitri's anger."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

"There were bodies everywhere, bodies and blood."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

~+*+~ CHAPTER TWO ~+*+~

"No. No way could I have stayed calm in her place. I would have gone on a rampage. I would have screamed and kicked things. I would have hit anyone who tried to tell me things would be okay."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

"He (Dimitri) was invincible. A badass. A god."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

~+*+~ CHAPTER THREE ~+*+~

""How do you not know where the heart is? Especially considering how many of them you've broken?"
- Mason Ashford to Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

Mason: "Belikov is a sick, evil man who should be thrown into a pit of rabid vipers for the great offense he committed against you this morning."
Rose: "Thank you. Can vipers be rabid?"
Mason: "I don't see why not. Everything can be. I think. Canadian geese might be worse than vipers, though."
Rose: "Canadian geese are deadlier than vipers?"
Mason: "You ever tried to feed those little bastards? They're vicious. You get thrown to vipers, you die quickly. But the geese? That'll go on for days. More suffering."
Rose: "Wow. I don't know whether I should be impressed or frightened that you've thought about all this," 
- Mason Ashford and Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

~+*+~ CHAPTER FOUR ~+*+~

- I noticed a dummy with curly red hair. Suddenly, all the events from Stan's class came tumbling back into my head. I scowled. -
Rose: "Can I stake that one next time?"
Dimitri: "I don't think that'd be healthy,"
- Rose Hathaway and Dimitri Belikov (Frostbite)

~+*+~ CHAPTER FIVE ~+*+~

Tasha: "I've heard a lot about you, Rose."
- I gave Christian a dangerous look, and Tasha laughed. -
Tasha: "Don't worry, It was all good."
Christian: "No, it wasn't."
- Tasha Ozera and Christian Ozera (Frostbite)

Rose: "Did you (Tasha) start learning to fight before or after that happened to your face?"
Lissa: "Rose!"
- Rose Hathaway and Lissa Dragomir (Frostbite)

Rose: "If you'd teach me to swear in Russian, I might have a new appreciation for it."
Dimitri: "You swear too much already."
Rose: "I just want to express myself."
Dimitri: "Oh, Roza… You express yourself more than anyone else I know."
- Rose Hathaway and Dimitri Belikov (Frostbite)

~+*+~ CHAPTER SIX ~+*+~

Rose: "Shit."
Janine: "He's not here."
Rose: "What are you doing here?" 
- As soon as the words were out of my mouth, her appearance registered with me. A stretchy spandex shirt with short sleeves. Loose, drawstring workout pants similar to the ones I wore.- Rose: "Shit."
- Rose Hathaway and Janine Hathaway (Frostbite)

Dr. Olendzki: "What's your name?"
Rose: "What?"
Dr. Olendzki: "Your name."
Rose: "You know my name."
Dr. Olendzki: "I want you to tell me."
Rose: "Rose. Rose Hathaway."
Dr. Olendzki: "Do you know your birthday?"
Rose: "Of course I do. Why are you asking me such stupid things? Did you lose my records?"
- Dr. Olendzki gave an exasperated sigh and walked off, taking the annoying light with her. -
Dr. Olendzki: "I think she's fine,"
- Dr. Olendzki and Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

"I had a black eye. A freaking black eye. And my mother had given it to me."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

~+*+~ CHAPTER SEVEN ~+*+~

"Malicious or not, strong leaders always attract followers."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

Mia: "Wow. Talk about a face only a mother could love."
Rose: "Well, you're the expert on face injury. How's your nose?"
Mia: "It's better. Fortunately, it was only broken by a psychopathic whore and not anyone actually related to me."
Rose: "Too bad. Family members hit you by accident. Psychopathic whores tend to come back for more."
- Mia Rinaldi and Rose hathaway (Frostbite)

"Well, she 
(Janine) was talking to me. That's enough to make anyone lose their temper. And I accused her of sleeping with my dad because he was the soundest evolutionary choice."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

"Wow. What'd he 
(Christian) do to deserve that? Rescue orphans from a burning building? If so, you might want to make sure he didn't set the building on fire in the first place."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

"Who knew? Moroi have Roswell- and Area 51-type stuff. It's a wonder I'm not being studied somewhere to see if they can figure out the bond."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

"Maybe it was egotistical, but I knew I looked good. I wore a C-cup and had a body much coveted in a school where most of the girls were supermodel slim. And as I'd noted earlier, my face was pretty too. On a typical day, I was a nine around here—ten on a very good one. But today? Yeah. I was practically in negative numbers."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

~+*+~ CHAPTER EIGHT ~+*+~

Lissa: "Don't you think we're going to go to hell for this?"
Christian: "For this?" He played with the shirt's edge, letting his finger just barely brush inside of it.
Lissa: "No. For this." She gestured around the attic. "This is a church. We shouldn't be doing this kind of, um, thing up here."
Christian: "Not true. The church is downstairs. This is just storage. God won't mind."
- Lissa Dragomir and Christian Ozera (Frostbite)

Rose: "You got me a present?"
Mason: "Yup. But if you keep back-talking, I might give it to someone else."
Rose: "Like Meredith?"
Mason: "She isn't even in your league, and you know it."
Rose: "Even with a black eye?"
Mason: "Even with two black eyes."
- Rose Hathaway and Mason Ashford (Frostbite)

Dimitri: "Do not do that again."
Rose: "Don't kiss me back t

- Dimitri Belikov and Rose Hathaway (Frostbite

~+*+~ CHAPTER NINE ~+*+~

Rose: "Liss … I can't… you can't give me something like this."
Lissa: "Well, I certainly can't keep it. It's meant for a guardian. My guardian."
Rose: "You know, there's a good possibility I'll get kicked out of school before I can become your guardian."
Lissa: "Well, then you can give it back."
- Rose Hathaway and Lissa Dragomir (Frostbite)

Mason: "Man, I hope they let me carry an axe."
Rose - It was a comical and ludicrous idea, since axes were hardly convenient weapons to carry around. For half a second, the thought of Mason walking down the street with an axe over his shoulder lightened my mood a little.
- Mason Ashford and Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

"I also found it ironic that he 
(Mason) wanted to fight every Strigoi in the world but was afraid of my mother."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

~+*+~ CHAPTER TEN ~+*+~

Rose: "You're so delusional."
Mason: "Sane guys are boring."
- Rose Hathaway and Mason Ashford (Frostbite)

"Sweat isn't a bad thing. Some of the best things in life happen while sweating. Yeah, if you gettoo much of it and it gets old and stale, it turns pretty gross. But on a beautiful woman? Intoxicating. If you could smell things like a vampire does, you'd know what I'm talking about. Most people mess it all up and drown themselves in perfume. Perfume can be good…especially if you get one that goes with your chemistry. But you only need a hint. Mix about 20 percent of that with 80 percent of your own perspiration…mmm. Dead sexy."
- Adrian Ivashkov (Frostbite)

Adrian: "He didn't give you that black eye, did he?"
Rose: "He wouldn't be alive if he did. I got it during … practice. I mean, I'm training to be a guardian. Our classes are always rough."
Adrian: "That's pretty hot,"
Rose: "Punching me in the eye?"
Adrian: "Well, no. Of course not. I meant that the idea of getting rough with you is hot. I'm a big fan of full-contact sports."
- Adrian Ivashkov and Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

Rose: "Hey, Mia."
Mia: "Another guy?"
Rose: "Mia, this is Adrian Ivashkov."
Adrian: "Always a pleasure to meet a friend of Rose's, especially a pretty one."
Rose: "We aren't friends,"
Mia: "Rose only hangs out with guys and psychopaths,"
Adrian: "Well, since I'm both a psychopath and a guy, that would explain why we're such good friends."
Rose: "You and I aren't friends either,"
Adrian: "Always playing hard to get, huh?"
Mia: "She's not that hard to get. Just ask half the guys at our school."
Rose: "Yeah, and you can ask the other half about Mia. If you can do a favor for her, she'll do lots of favors for you."
Mia: "Well, at least I don't do them for free."
- Rose Hathaway, Mia Rinaldi and Adrian Ivashkov (Frostbite)

"You're one of those people who either has soul mates or mortal enemies, aren't you? No in-between."
- Adrian Ivashkov to Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

Adrian: "Rose Hathaway, I can't wait to see you again. If you're this charming while tired and annoyed and this gorgeous while bruised and in ski clothes, you must be devastating at your peak."
Rose: "If by 'devastating' you mean that you should fear for your life, then yeah. You're right."
- Adrian Ivashkov and Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

~+*+~ CHAPTER ELEVEN ~+*+~

Rose: "What's going on?"
Lissa: "Bad things, You'll approve."
- Rose Hathaway and Lissa Dragomir (Frostbite)

"Not bad—aside from the fact you would have burned my face off."
- Tasha Ozera (Frostbite)

Mason: "Is it true you were hanging out with Adrian Ivashkov?"
Rose: "I—what?"
Mason: "I heard you guys got drunk last night."
Lissa: "You did?"
Rose: "No, of course not! I barely know him."
Mason: "But you do know him,"
Rose: "Barely."
Lissa: "He's got a bad reputation,"
Christian: "Yeah. He goes through a lot of girls."

Rose: "Will you guys lay off? I talked to him for, like, five minutes! And that's only because he was blocking my way inside. Where are you getting all this?" Immediately, I answered my own question. "Mia."
- Mason Ashford, Rose Hathaway, Lissa Dragomir and Christian Ozera (Frostbite)

Mason: "Yeah…but even if you were with him…it's not like I have any right…"
Rose: "Don't you?"
Mason: "Do I?"
- Smiling back, I stepped forward and kissed him. -
- Mason Ashford and Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

~+*+~ CHAPTER TWELVE ~+*+~

Man 1:"...places where they have safety in numbers and can be easily guarded. And look how many of us made it here, children and adults alike. Why don't we live this way all the time?"
Man 2: "Plenty of us already do."
Man 1: "A couple of families here and there. Or a town with a large Moroi population. But those Moroi are still decentralized. Most don't pool their resources—their guardians, their magic. If we could emulate this model…" He spread his hands out. "… we'd never have to worry about Strigoi again."
Rose: "And Moroi could never interact with the rest of the world again. Well, until humans discovered secret vampire cities sprouting up in the wilderness. Then we'd have lots of interactions."
- Rose Hathaway, Man 1 and Man 2 (Frostbite)

"I hoped that if I had a homicidal look on my face, people would assume it was for Strigoi and not the woman currently addressing us."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

"And please don't insult us all by acting like the Moroi do a huge favor to the dhampirs by helping them reproduce. Maybe it's different in your family, but for the rest of us, sex is fun. The Moroi doing it with dhampirs aren't really making that big of a sacrifice."
- Tasha Ozera (Frostbite)

"This entire plan of yours to get more guardians relies on throwing children and the unwilling into harm's way, just so you can—barely—stay one step ahead of the enemy. I would have said it's the stupidest plan I've ever heard, if I hadn't already had to listen to his."
- Tasha Ozera (Frostbite)


"You're imagining things. Clearly, my stunning beauty has clouded your mind."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

"Never thought I'd live to see the day when I agreed with you, Rose. But sadly, I do."
- Christian Ozera (Frostbite)


"I'm trying to stop you guys from being any more idiotic than you already are! You want to help? Stop fighting each other! Ripping each other's heads off isn't going to save the Moroi unless you're trying to thin stupidity out of the gene pool."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

"Magic—especially offensive magic—takes a lot of self-control, and so far, you aren't impressing me with yours. I have more than you do, and if you knew me at all, you'd know how crazy that is."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

Adrian: "Don't worry. I told you, I'm not interested in her in that way. She doesn't look as good in a bathing suit. Probably not as good out of one either."
Rose: "Well, you'll never find out."
Adrian: "It's okay. I have a good imagination."
- Adrian Ivashkov and Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)


"I don't think anyone had expected Adrian to suddenly take an abrupt trip to Crazyville."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

"Good God. Men everywhere."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)


"Royal Moroi might make me uncomfortable, but smartass guys hitting on me didn't. I dealt with them on a regular basis."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

Adrian: "No surprise there. She's one of those people who can charm anyone she wants if she tries hard enough. Even people who hate her."
Rose: "I feel that way when I talk to you."
- Adrian Ivashkov and Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)


Rose: "This is silk. You could have ruined it."
Janine: "Good. Maybe it'll stop you from dressing up like a cheap whore."
- Rose Hathaway and Janine Hathaway (Frostbite)

"You make it sound like I was giving a lap dance in there. I just had dinner with Lissa."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

"You can't force love, I realized. It's there or it isn't. If it's not there, you've got to be able to admit it. If it is there, you've got to do whatever it takes to protect the ones you love."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)


Christian: "If you've come to apologize for her, you can just go ahead and—"
Rose: "Oh, shut up. This isn't about you."
- Christian Ozera and Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

Rose: "I know. But I don't want her to get in trouble."
Christian: "But you don't mind if I do?"
Rose: "Not really."
Christian: "You're a piece of work, you know that?"
- Rose Hathaway and Christian Ozera (Frostbite)

"I grabbed the Maglite and clocked him on the back of the head. He grunted and crumpled to the ground. He'd barely seen me coming, and despite the horribleness of what I'd just done, I kind of wished one of my instructors had been there to grade me on such an awesome performance."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

Christian: "Jesus Christ. You just assaulted a guardian."
Rose: "Yeah. I didn't know just how much you sucked at compulsion."
- Christian Ozera and Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

Christian: "So, how do we find them?"
Rose: "Maybe if we act like Strigoi, they'll try to stake us."
- Christian Ozera and Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)


"There's nothing worse than waiting and not knowing what'll happen to you. Your own imagination can be crueler than any captor."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

~+*+~ CHAPTER TWENTY ~+*+~

"The closest we got to freedom was heavily supervised— and extremely embarrassing—bathroom breaks."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

Christian: "Don't you get tired of hearing yourself talk?"
Isaiah: "No. Not really.
- Christian Ozera and Isaiah (Frostbite)

"Good God. What a noble lot. You're all Spartacus, aren't you?"
- Isaiah (Frostbite)


"Karma's a real bitch."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

"Yeah, she (Elena) really was whiny. I never would have thought a Strigoi could do that. It was almost comical."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)


"Dimitri didn't say anything when his turn came, but as always, his eyes spoke legions."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

"I knew it was going to be one of the Zen life lessons. Something about inner strength and perseverance, about how the choices we made today were templates for the future or some other nonsense. Instead he kissed me."
- Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)
