Finally, when a startling discovery challenges everything she thought was true about her life, Lia realizes exactly what she must do. Which was much appreciated, considering the tangled mess that was the political situation in this book.

I did have two issues. But Lia is startled to find that Gabe is empathetic and intelligent…and handsome. For me this book was a page turner; it’s one of those books where I sat down to read it, flew through it, and suddenly I was at the end wanting the next book immediately.

She’s got a different kind of courage, she’s not fearless, but has so much she’s fearful of, stuff that scares even the toughest villagers, but she takes charge in the face of her fears. In theory, Farthers and the people elpison live on Frost shouldn’t interact with one another. First, I have some exciting news!

Thorns (Frost Chronicles, book 2) by Kate Avery Ellison

Which I am not. Apr 23, Mitch rated it it was amazing. Hopefully i will get some answers to these questions ellizon the next book, which i’m going to start reading next! With intriguing developments towards the end, I’m certainly curious about the story’s procession from this point on. I guess the Watchers are what remains of what used to be, and it was even asked, “What is this ancient race” and “Where did they come from?

But some time’s it can be too late. I wish that they were more All in all, a great read that I oate recommend if you like young adult fantasy. Lia will sacrifice everything she has ever known for him, but in the end is it worth it or will it cost her her life and the lives of those she loves?


So yeah, I liked Lia’s character, the complex, hardscrabble world around her, and the political themes in the backdrop. But I felt the explanation at the end happened too quickly and was rushed through.

Evergreen branches coated in ice; the bewitching magic of falling snow; the delicious icy crunch underfoot; the solitary, yet peaceful, feeling that the world is quiet and wiped clean under a frosty blanket of new white; the thought that with the snowfall you have indeed managed to capture a single moment in time, if only for a instant frosf a world encased in snow.

My one complaint is that it was too short. Not to mention all the rich metaphors, symbols and feelings tactile and emotional that the author could have evoked using the world of fibers and cloth making. I can’t wait until the next one comes out!! I wouldn’t call the suspense nonexistent, it just wasn’t to the depth I was hoping for.

But when her sister finds a handsome fugitive bleeding to death in the forest at dusk, Lia surprises herself and does the unthinkable. So my biggest problem was with the characters. I easily felt the hardships, but I can’t say I was very perturbed by the events that occurred in the story. At least in the Frost they don’t have to be affected by the Farther politics. Her parents were killed by watchers. And she’s a very down to earth kind of character, so, it feels a little forced This is a must read book!

Back in the summer, I was approached by Delight Games about the company acquiring the text game rights to Frost.

The Frost Chronicles Series

But, not this family. She does not want to hurt her brother or sister so at first she is eellison about helping him but she just can’t let him die.


I’m guessing they were formed to help those the Farthers who don’t agree with the Aeralis, but how did they come to be? Additionally, I learned what the Thorns avedy and what their mission is, but I want to know more about them. I liked the characters, though.

However, I feel like there’s a lot more to him than what’s been given to the readers thus far, and I’m dying to know the ellisn to all my burning questions. And oh how i loved it! The only minor critique that I have is that it was a little on the short side.

INT 1 2 Oct 15, But if things are tough for the regular folks of the Frost, they are definitely the toughest for Lia Weaver and her siblings. Fortunately for me, the romance makes sparse appearances. I enjoy tweaking my covers when I have multiple books to play with–it gives me the ability to built a cohesion among the covers that I can only guess at when designing the first book in the series since the covers are somewhat informed by their contents.

But something about him compels her to save him, and she soon learns that the truth isn’t nearly as black and white e,lison her village leaders might have her believe. But when her sister comes elkison with an injured one Lia’s mother mode kicks in and she nurses him back to health. Giving shelter to the fugitive could get her in trouble. Now, I’m happy to tell you that the app “choices game” version of Frost is available for play!
