Great beauty hides dark secrets…

Seventeen-year-old Anastasia Lockhart has never led an easy life, but when she starts getting into serious trouble, she’s sent to live with her grandparents in Cedar Falls. The small, picturesque town hasn’t changed since she visited four years ago, with one exception – the presence of a handsome, mysterious boy named Frost. Despite warnings from her grandparents and friends to stay away from Frost, Anastasia can’t deny their attraction, and the more time they spend together, the deeper in love they fall. Unfortunately, Frost has a secret that is beyond Anastasia’s wildest imagination, and she soon finds herself in the midst of a supernatural legend that has haunted Cedar Falls for years.

Can Anastasia and Frost’s love really overcome anything, or are their fates much darker?

Review3.5

Positives:

Frostbitten is a well written book. What really makes Frostbitten a good book is Heather’s writing. I can’t stress enough on how much I liked it. It’s a lovely book that has all the elements a paranormal book should have. Right from the beautiful and stubborn young girl to a gorgeous and loyal werewolf, from a caring BFF to a rich and jealous bitch (who makes Anastasia’s life a living hell!) The mystery involved is also quite good.

I really liked Cedar Falls and I’d love to get answers about it’s past in the next instalment.

Negatives:

Even after liking this book I can’t ignore 2 facts. First, that it was really hard to connect with the leads. I mean they are well-explained and all, but still they felt very far-off. And secondly, this book has some really odd similarities to Twilight: A girl whose life is hell, meets a gorgeous guy who takes comfort in solitude, and falls in love with him. She finds out about him being a shape-shifter and then accepts the truth in no time. They they stand together against the world. Overall it’s totally like Twilight except for the fact that Frost is a werewolf and secondly he was unaware of his past.

Conclusion:

I understand that as this is the first part, establishing the basics is very important and in this book it’s been done quite neatly (well, except for the characters.) I guess that the next part is going to be better, so I’m looking forward to read it 🙂

  1. So often, in a series, the author has to establish all of the characters. That can lead to a less interesting read. I’m happy that she was able to establish the characters and make it interesting to read.

  2. The writing being great is such a large part of enjoying a book though. I hope the other things that you didn’t like in this one are taken care of in the future since the writing is done so well. Not connecting with the characters is a big deal. Great review!

  3. As soon as I read the blurb I was thinking ‘this is a twilight knock-off!’ But once I read your review and that you liked the writing, it made me look at it a second time. I think I’ll be seeing where the author takes the series before reading it myself – I don’t want to just rehash twilight, good writing or not.

    1. Yea, that’s for the best. I told my other readers as-well to wait for the next book to be reviewed. If it’s good enough then this one will be worth reading, if not then it won’t be an idle choice!
