I eagerly look forward to seeing more of this Frost covered world Kate Ellison has created and seeing the different directions future books will travel in. I am definitely hoping for a closer look into the monsters and the ruins, as well as the futuristic steampunk-like land of the Farthers as well as what might lie beyond the Frost and the white border of the map.
I loved the fast moving suspense that kept me turning pages as well as the beautiful descriptions of this frosty land. I loved the relationship between Lia and Gabe and the honesty of loving.
I cannot wait to read the next one!!!
I typically read 5-6 books a week, on top of whatever else I am doing. So needless to say I go through books quite quickly. Luckily I have found some books that I love to read over and over, and The Frost Chronicles will be one of thoes!!
In this first book we are introduced to a young Lia, with her parents gone she is left taking care of her brother and sister and thier farm in the middle of the Frost. The Frost is unrelenting, unforgiving and full of dangers, with some wonders mixed in. As we begin to learn about Lia and her world there is a rollercoaster of emotions and interested that weave themselves into are imaginations. Living nightmares and things out of fairy tales all combine with a wonderfully well written story that transports you into the world of the Frost and the heart of the main character.
As a fan of main characters who are strong and tough and can hold their own against all odds while still maintaining their feminity I loved this book. Lia proves to the reader that she can take what is coming and keep going. At the end of the book I was immediately tapping buttons on my kindle to buy the next few books in the series.
This is a great read for girls, and women of all ages, with lots of imagination in a vibrant well written world unlike anything that I've read before.
This story mostly follows one of the Frost people named Lia as she tries to keep her family from losing their family farm. So when one of the `Farthers' shows up on the family farm, wounded and almost dead, Lia doesn't want to help him and prefers to leave him for the Watchers to eat. Against her better judgment, she decides to help the Farther and that sets off a chain of events that change Lia's whole world.
This was the first book in the Frost Chronicles series and it was a great beginning. The story of this whole little dystopian world was a good tale. Although part of a series, it did not end in a cliffhanger but did have a satisfying finish. Thank you Ms. Ellison! There were things that were not told in this story so plenty of stuff left for the next book.
I liked this book in that it reminded me of remote Alaska. It was easy for me to picture the Watchers as bears in the woods.
