"The plot stayed with me the entire time. I could see everything happening in my head while I read the book. It never got boring and it was quite anadventure to go on! The characters were so interesting as well. I can't wait to see what more develops for the characters and their adventures!"

The story was very enjoyable overall. It starts off slow, not in a bad way though, and builds very naturally to a tense and frightening halfway point, only to sky rocket towards its conclusion. Like others I wish we had a little more insight as to how the mages came to be, or how things will heat up between them and the humans, but as we all know this is book 1 of a trilogy, so all will be revealed in time. With that said I thought Frost Arch gave us plenty to chew on as we wait for book 2 later this year. I'm very interested to see what decisions and events that took place in Frost Arch will carry over into the next book. Flamethroat, book 2 of the trilogy is right around the corner, and I am excited to follow Avalon on another adventure!
I don't want to be completely harsh as I understand this is a self-published novel by someone trying to follow her passion. I can sympathize. But I'm still pretty disappointed in the book, regardless.
As others have mentioned, there's the general grammar and spelling errors throughout. Sometimes it was clear the author pulled out a thesaurus to find big words to insert when more simple descriptions would have fit the overall tone of the book better.
I go back and forth trying to figure out if this book is supposed to be for tweens or adults. Most of the scenarios have a very teen-like approach and then at some points she throws in an alarming adult situation that just doesn't seem to sit easily with the rest of the content and feel.
I am continually irritated by the heroine's complaining about having bad luck when clearly she makes continuous stupid decisions over and over and over. "Hey, I was told not to go up there. But I just can't help it, I'm going up there. Oh no, I got found out! Why me? What did I do wrong?" The only person victimizing her is herself.
I'm going to take the rest of these books to the local used book store. I'm pretty disappointed with them. I do imagine that the author will get better with more practice - and especially if she gets the assistance of a great editor. She's got unique ideas, just needs more practice pulling them all together in a more engaging manner.

My bad, different authors, but so much better the the fire mage book I previously reviewed.
I would score this 3.5 stars and round it up to 4.
I often find that some women authors tend to over compensate with women, making them into godesses who can't do anything wrong, while men appear so dumb.
It was nice to read a book that balanced the sexes and didn't over compensate.
I thought the ending of this book was a bit drawn out, could have been refined a bit more, but on the whole a nice read.
Couple of grammatical errors, you're instead of your most of the way through the book and towards the end found myself having to add some prepositions to complete the sentences, but on the whole nothing like some of the books I have read and reviewed on kindle.
As this is a trilogy, I look forward to reading the next book.
