Where have I been hiding? This book is the first time I have heard of this series or this author. It definitely won't be the last, though. I enjoyed it so much that I jumped on Amazon and ordered the previous books in the series so I could read those too. Here's hoping I enjoy them just as much!

Frostbound is part of The Dark Forgotten series, but it stands on its own very well. The author does a great job of introducing the world and the characters without making the reader feel lost. We're dropped straight into the action, but I never felt like I was scrambling to understand what was happening. I really appreciate an author who can strike a nice balance between bulky info dumps and leaving a reader to puzzle the world out on her (or his) own.

I really liked how the author turned some of my expectations on their ear. At one point Talia is held hostage. At first it was because Lore was keeping her until he found out if she was guilty or innocent, but then he didn't want to let her go for her own good. Instead of letting this go (as I've seen many, many PNR heroines do) Talia is angry and resentful. She also finds his plan to weaken her with lust (once again, something I've seen frequently in PNR) pretty insulting. Refreshingly, Lore's friends also tell him that he's not exactly walking the straight and narrow by "protecting" her that way. I really enjoyed that because too often I find myself frustrated by the heroines' abnormal reactions to some of the heroes' behavior.

Although there is a lot of witty dialogue and quite a few funny scenes, it's not all fun and games. Lore and Talia deal with some very serious issues and stressful emotions that added a nice depth to their characters.

I strongly recommend you read the previous books in the series (Ravenous, Scorched and Unchained) prior to reading this installment.

Wow what an awesome installment! The story was fresh and exciting. There was a bit less romance and more focus on the story in this installment which was nice. I also liked the fact that the author didn't fill the pages with useless and endless sex scenes but actually gave us a brilliantly clever story with plenty of off-the-wall humor. At times this book was so twistedly-funny I really laughed-out-loud.

Usually when I begin a novel, I have a hard time getting into it. This book hooked me from the very beginning and I was so immersed in the story, I completely devoured it. On occasion when I was forced to put this book down, I counted down the time until I could pick it back up again.

How ironic that the series is named Dark Forgotten series....especially since that's what it is according to Penguin Group publishers. I contacted the author and asked what the next book in the series would be and unfortunately she says none. The series is in limbo at the moment and only an immediate increase in book sales will determine its fate.

It would be a crime to lose a creative series such as this. Each book with supernatural diversity but written in the same universe and can be read as a standalone or in succession.

For those wondering what genre this series falls into, I would categorize it as a romantic dark urban fantasy, similar to Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress series.

I highly recommend this book to fellow dark urban fantasy readers and also hope that there will be a book 5.

I tried to like this book - really, really tried but I couldn't even get through the first 50 pages. Every other sentence is "Lore thought...", "Lore said...." "Lore felt...". Ugh. This story (what I was able to slog through) just felt forced. The characters didn't interest me at all - they just didn't suck me in. And when the story did start to pick up the author would so cleverly sneak in another "Lore (insert adjective here)..." and I just couldn't handle it . Maybe the book got better, maybe not - but I couldn't get through it.

Review Courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales

Quick & Dirty: Sexy, interesting and quite captivating.

Opening Sentence: "Till death do us part."

The Review:

Welcome to Fairview, USA. Take a walk down our scenic byways, and don't forget to watch out whom you talk to, for they might very well have fangs. You see, Y2K had a completely different meaning to the inhabitants of the world in The Dark Forgotten series. With the coming of the new millennia also came the coming of all those things that existed only in fairy tales and nightmares. Well, they were always there, it's just now they are upstanding citizens of the world, just like you and me. Well, sorta.

In Frostbound, we are introduced to Lore, a fine upstanding member of the community, and also Alpha of the Hellhounds, and at the time of publication, acting sheriff. When evil comes to his town, the hellhound protector half of Lore, and the abilities that come with his being alpha, won't let him ignore it. When that evil threatens not only his town, but also his female, well let's just say it gains his complete attention. But this is not your ordinary evil, and it will take all of his power, and that of his friends and family to overcome.

And Lore's lovely lady is English Lit teacher and tutor, Talia Rostova, who also happens to be a vampire. Talia is a newly turned vampire on the run from the one who turned her, against her will I might add. She is still coming to terms with her lot in life when disaster strikes rather close to home, in the form of the murder of her cousin, roommate and best friend, Michelle. While she makes the most likely suspect, being a vampire and all, we know she is innocent and so does Lore.
