In the icy, monster-plagued world of the Frost, one wrong move and a person could end up dead—and Lia Weaver knows this better than anyone. After monsters kill her parents, she must keep the family farm running despite the freezing cold and threat of monster attacks or risk losing her siblings to reassignment by the village Elders. With dangers on all sides and failure just one wrong step away, she can’t afford to let her emotions lead her astray. So when her sister finds a fugitive bleeding to death in the forest—a young stranger named Gabe—Lia surprises herself and does the unthinkable.
She saves his life.
Giving shelter to the fugitive could get her in trouble. The Elders have always described the advanced society of people beyond the Frost, the “Farthers,” as ruthless and cruel. But Lia is startled to find that Gabe is empathetic and intelligent…and handsome. She might even be falling in love with him.
But time is running out. The monsters from the forest circle the farm at night. The village leader is starting to ask questions. Farther soldiers are searching for Gabe. Lia must locate a secret organization called the Thorns to help Gabe escape to safety, but every move she makes puts her in more danger.
Is compassion—and love—worth the risk?
I have actually been super excited for this book AND this blog tour. Eeek! I adore the cover to this book. It's beautiful, totally wintery ( is that even a word???) and gives off just enough mystery to such me into the story. Like...maybe there's a lot more going on beneath the books cover!
I loved the main character Lia. She was strong, fierce, but she was also loving and kind. She was a fantastic mix of everything I want in a heroine and I really enjoyed reading her story. Gabe was a likeable character, and I liked their relation ship. Although I seriously wanted to see more of his character and Adam's as well. Other than wanting more of the boys, I thought the character's were really well written.
I loved the way the story was written with the incredible mysterious plot thing going on. It kept me racing through the story to find out what will happen next. Which made this story fly by even faster! There were so many surprises and things I didn't see coming. I gasped and hid under the covers biting my nails the whole way through. This book had an incredible creepy factor that I seriously ate up! haha
This book was such a quick read for me. Partly because its short, and partly because it's written so well you just can't put it down. Part of me wanted it to be much longer so I wouldn't have to put it down so soon. All in all Frost was a really great story! It was well written, it moved quickly and I loved it. It was mysterious, creepy, and utterly fantastic! I highly recommend reading it!
