How did I get the book? Won, Walker Books prize pack for the The British Books Challenge 2012.
First Impression: *bounce**bounce**bounce*
(Once I learned I’d won, I was hoping this was part of the prize)
Synopsis: Frost is cursed – possessed by a wolf demon that brings death everywhere she goes. Desperate to find a cure, she flees her home, only to be captured by the Ruan Hill Guard. Trapped until she can prove she is not an enemy, Frost grows increasingly close to the Guard’s charismatic leader Luca and his second in command, the tortured Arian. Torn between two very different men, Frost fears that she may not be able to protect either of them … from herself.
200words (or less) review: I love everything about this book. Everything!
I even love the love triangle and I dislike love triangles with a vengeance.
(Say that 3 times fast and you can have a cupcake.) 😉
When writing reviews I try really hard not to gush, given my fangirldom of Sunshine I actually thought I delivered a pretty balanced review on that book… – I’ll be gushing over Frostfire.
Gush 1: The writing.
Gush 2: The story.
Gush 3: Frost.
Gush 3b: The remaining characters
Gush 4: The relationships. I’m including all of them in this: friendships, family, love & hate.
Gush 5: World-building.
Gush 6: The ending.
Basically the blurb sounds great but the book is so much more than that and you need to read it. Read it!
Normal reviews will be resumed shortly.
