Frostbitten by Heather Beck
Publication date: 23rd June 2014
Can Anastasia and Frost’s love really overcome anything, or are their fates much darker?
I always enjoy reading about wolves (Call it a Lupine fascination) so this one was no exception. The story revolves around Anastasia. A teen with a troubled past and a strained relationship with her mother is sent to live in Cedar Falls with her grandparents. She is initially not happy to return to this small town of her childhood but soon she starts to try to blend in. Everyone seems welcoming but there is a secret she can tell that everyone is hiding. And then she meets Frost, a name just as mysterious as the owner. Even though she is warned countless times by her grandfather to stay away from him she just can’t help but be drawn deeper into Frost’s world. When rumors of the Cedar falls urban legend begin to come true, its up to Anastasia to decide on what she wants to believe. She also knows there is secret Frost is keeping from her will this new found love be able to withstand the truth Anastasia desperately seeks.
What did I think? This was actually a really great story but it just took me ages to finish the book. To be honest I got bored somewhere in the middle because Anastasia was just so super stupid.
I found the story a bit unrealistic because Anastasia was making decisions that any normal 17 year old would not make. Read it for yourself and tell me what you think.
I didn’t like that the family kept secrets as this caused more harm than good.
I really liked Frost, he was just super dreamy and who wouldn’t love someone like him. He just seemed extra clingy although I guess with the way he was brought up I can understand it.
The story moved a bit slow at the beginning, I enjoyed the final 30% of the book as that’s where the action and fun stuff was happening.
A great end to the book and I won’t lie I am keen to find out what will happen and I think the author is holding out on some secret with Anastasia. I kept expecting some revelation, but that’s just me so you can imagine my disappointment.
An overall good read would recommend if you like a good supernatural read.
