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!!!
While there is plenty of adolescent drama and hints of love triangles to satisfy most girls, Ellison brings it to the next step. Not only does she give you hope in the midst of her characters' desolation, but she gives us the gift of a sensible heroine. Lia Weaver must put aside her youth to care for her crippled twin brother and ditsy sister. She has blocked out many of her emotions in order to become strong. When love knocks on Lia's door post, she doesn't swoon and lose herself in the romance. She keeps her focus on what's most important, her family and people.
Frost leaves you with many questions, such as the origins of the Watchers, the fate of our hero and above all, what challenges the Weaver's will face next.
Frost is unlike ANYTHING I've ever read before, and I fell in love with it from the first sentence. Seriously, I don't know how Kate does it, but she has effectively enlisted me as a die-hard fan at this point. The whole concept of the story is so different, so fresh, so freaking awesome that I couldn't put it down!
The main character's quite the strong young woman. Lia has to take care of her family after the deaths of her parents and fulfill the weekly quota in order to feed herself and her siblings. They live in an area called the Frost, where everything is frozen and lifeless, and staying out after the sun sets marks you as prey of the Watchers. This world captivated me since it's so unlike anything I've read about.
And then there's Gabe! *girlish squeal* Gosh, is he adorable! Gabe is a fugitive that Lia and her little sister Ivy take in out of pity for him. And Lia starts to get attracted to him despite her promise to herself to never love someone that way. Because when you love someone and you lose them, the pain is unbearable. The moments between Gabe and Lia were so heartstopping, and sometimes when they would interact, I was literally smirking and thinking, "Ha! I knew he'd kiss her eventually!" Such a cute couple! I hope things work out for them.
All of the characters were so interesting, too! From Lia and her siblings, to Gabe and the Farthers, to Cole and the Mayor and Lia's best friend Ann. All of them are so interesting, and I only wish this book would've been a little longer so we could learn more about them!
Kate's writing style is freaking fabulous as well. Her gift for story-telling has roped me in, and her characterization and plot construction kept me willingly prisoner as she wove this story together. Getting my hands on Thorns as soon as I can!! :D
