I'm surprised there are no reviews for this yet, as "The Frost Chronicles" is really engaging and a cut above many of the dystopian YA novels out at the moment. I read both Frost and Thorns in the span of a day, and while that's not unusual for me, it's definitely been a while since such a series has left an impression on me!

The world Ellison has crafted is mysterious and beautiful--she hasn't just fallen back on the "Oh, we're in the ruins of [insert major U.S. city here]" lazy world-building that seems to dominate this genre. While the underlying theme may not be terribly original, its presentation feels very unique and lets the story stand on its own. The characters are all multidimensional and relatable. Lia's far from perfect (despite her new paramour's protestations to the contrary...) but her devotion to her siblings despite her frustrations with them makes for a sympathetic and fundamentally likeable heroine.

Ellison is a very articulate writer, and her prose is mature enough that I almost hesitate to categorize this as YA. Almost... the drawn out constantly hinted at--but never addressed until the end--romance of the second book occasionally exasperated me. Especially compared to the much more subtle romance in the first novel. There is a far more fascinating plot to be found in the political intrigues working their way up to the Frost and the rapidly-encroaching military rule. In contrast to that, the over-wrought exchanges between Lia and Adam just seem needlessly added in to provide the obligatory love triangle. I like romance as much as the next person, but I definitely would've liked to see more action with the actual plot in this book.

First I must tell you that I'm 62 years old and have been an avid reader all my life. I have read quite a few "end of the world" books lately and agree with some who say that they seem to run along the same line most of the time. Strong girl who doesn't know she has power that saves the world. I got interested in this type of book after reading Hunger Games. The Frost Chronicles are not the usual strong girl with powers. She is strong when it comes to her brother and sister and has a strong sense of right and wrong. She wants to help people who have been under the control of a horrible government and is not aware at first that the government that she lives under is just as horrible in it's own way. She meets a boy that she falls in love with but they can't stay together and she saves him in Frost. This book is the second in the series and talks of the changes in her life and a new..... well I won't go there. You'll just have to read it. I highly recommend this book.

With the love of her life gone Lia strives to carry on with her parent's legacy of the Thorns. She still has her doubts about the organization but with the growing oppression of the Farthers and her growing bond with Adam it is the best way for her and her family to survive.

I really liked Lia in this one. She seemed to grow as a person and I really liked her relationship with Adam. I also really liked how the story is progressing. The unraveling of the secrets is interesting and the storyline is really unique. All I kept thinking was that I wanted to give Ivy a Gibb's NCIS slap over the back of her head.

this series is without a doubt one of the better dystopian society examples that has recently pervaded the YA genre. Ellison takes a rather simple idea and fills these short books with tons of imagery and descriptive language, a very thorough and enjoyable plot, and immensely relatable characters. I'm hooked!

I really like this concept and where the story was going - building in complexity as the characters' world view grows. However the simple (and predictable) dialogue and superficial exploration of the characters makes me feel as though it's incomplete. Perhaps a good teen novel but not for me.

Same as the other books in this series: Not the deepest, most complex, or life altering book by any means, but a good story that I read all the way through. It could do with a little more character development. The main character is a little inconsistent in some ways...

I have finally found an author who measures up to the marvels of Cidney Swanson. Surprisingly - or perhaps not? - she, too, is an indie author. Other similarities between the two: their breathtaking book covers drew me in where the back cover copy left me skeptical. Both women focus more on series than standalone novels. Finally, both write in forms of the speculative genre, be that science fiction or dystopian.

Of course every book has flaws. The Frost books had a few typos, and the fourth book had a couple of minor inconsistencies with the rest of the series. (Example: a book referred to as The Winter Parables in the other books was called The Snow Parables in book four. Not a huge deal.) The author kept mixing up peak/peek and, more commonly, pour/pore. The first book got a bit sensuous, but that actually faded out for the most part. (Not the romance - definitely not! - but the toeing-the-line-between-okay-and-not.) There was one random curse word in one book, which I think just missed editing. (Today's cursing didn't really fit the story world.) Other than that, though, the writing was spotless. Glorious vocabulary, a perfect blend of showing and telling, a strongly designed story world, unique and individual characters...

Speaking of characters, they're basically the heart of these books, and most definitely the best part(s). Whether you like a person or not, you come to love the author's brilliant depth and voice for each unique person, no matter how small their role. Who can Lia trust? Why is he acting like that? What does she want? Everything comes down to motivation, just as it should, and the motivations here are not lacking.

There is a love triangle that develops a little less than halfway into the series... but oh, how beautifully it was written.
