BITTER FROST by Kailin Gow

Bitter Frost (Frost, #1)Bitter Frost by Kailin Gow

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

(from Goodreads)

All her life, Breena had always dreamed about fairies as though she lived among them...beautiful fairies living among mortals and living in Feyland. In her dreams, he was always there the breathtakingly handsome but dangerous Winter Prince, Kian, who is her intended. When Breena turns sixteen, she begins seeing fairies and other creatures mortals don t see. Her best friend Logan, suddenly acts very protective. Then she sees Kian, who seems intent on finding her and carrying her off to Feyland. That's fine and all, but for the fact that humans rarely survive a trip to Feyland, a kiss from a fairy generally means death to the human unless that human has fairy blood in them or is very strong, and although Kian seemed to be her intended, he seems to hate her and wants her dead.

I would say this book is about a 3.5/5*. I only say that and not give it anything higher because the book was so short.

Even though the book was short I believe it still executed the story really well.

The story starts off on Breena's 16th birthday. For as long as she can remember she has always dreamed about fairies and pixies and a place called "Feyland". The dreams would often leave her thinking about them long after she has woken up and she would end up doing paintings of parts of the dreams because they were still so vivid.

Her best friend, Logan knows all about her dreams and doesn't judge her or make fun of her. In fact, he is very supportive of them and seems to be very interested in them also.

Everything used to be only in her dreams until the day of her 16th birthday when she believes she sees a pixie on the side of the road when the bus drives by. When she reveals this to Logan he acts as if he believes her too when this should be just a bunch of nonsense. Since when do pixies exist??

The story really starts to take off when Logan comes over to Breena's house to make her a birthday dinner and they are visited by a pixie. And not just any pixie, but the "King Pixie", who tries to get Breena to come with him. And then before you know it, they are joined by a Fairie! And the Fairie whisks Breena off to Feyland where it seems everywhere you turn someone is after Breena.

Here is where you learn the truth about Breena and Logan, and you learn a little bit of history on Feyland. There is also lots of action despite the few pages that are in the book.

The characters are great and the storyline, although done before, is still told really well.

This is the first book in the trilogy and I will be definitely picking up the other two.
