Frost (Frost #1) by Kate Avery Ellison
About the book:
In the icy, monster-plagued world of the Frost, one wrong move and a person could end up dead—and Lia Weaver knows this better than anyone. After monsters kill her parents, she must keep the family farm running despite the freezing cold and threat of monster attacks or risk losing her siblings to reassignment by the village Elders. With dangers on all sides and failure just one wrong step away, she can’t afford to let her emotions lead her astray. So when her sister finds a fugitive bleeding to death in the forest—a young stranger named Gabe—Lia surprises herself and does the unthinkable.
She saves his life.
Giving shelter to the fugitive could get her in trouble. The Elders have always described the advanced society of people beyond the Frost, the “Farthers,” as ruthless and cruel. But Lia is startled to find that Gabe is empathetic and intelligent…and handsome. She might even be falling in love with him.
But time is running out. The monsters from the forest circle the farm at night. The village leader is starting to ask questions. Farther soldiers are searching for Gabe. Lia must locate a secret organization called the Thorns to help Gabe escape to safety, but every move she makes puts her in more danger.
Is compassion—and love—worth the risk?
This book has been on my Want-To-Read List for awhile, so I was very excited to have the opportunity to read and review this book! Frost is a dystopian, fantasy, romance novel. I loved every minute of it! Kate Avery Ellison has a way of writing a book that draws you in from the first page and holds your attention through to the end of the book. I felt like reading Frost was effortless and went by very quickly! I loved Lia and her strength and love of her family. She had courage and bravery to face frightening situations so she could protect and care for her family. She began to evolve in her opinions and emotions as the book progressed and I liked this, as most humans change due to time and circumstances. The description of the Frost was perfect, at times I almost felt cold while I was reading! The ending is open for another book and I look forward to reading it! Frost is a four and a half star book for me!
You can pick up this book at amazon or barnes and noble.
I received this book for free. This is my honest review.
