Frost by Kate Avery Ellison is one of the most stunningly and vividly written young adult novels, that I've personally read in a while. With every flourish of her pen, she writes with such imaginative personality. The world of the Frost is a terrifying monster filled icey frigid place, with gorgeous scenery and very real threats of dangerous attacks. It's intriguing lyrical prose will pull you into the story that Kate Avery Ellison magically weaves and ensare you in its web holding you there until the last page has been turned.
Kate delivers a bright young daring herione, who isn't afraid to the unthinkable and defy the rules by taking in a young fugitive found bleeding to death in the forest by her sister. Gabe is anything, but a "Farther". He's kind, caring, empathetic, intelligent, and incredibly handsome. Lia soon finds herself attracted to him and quite possibly falling in love with Gabe, as the two grow closer. There is so much compassion and love exchanged between the two, that their romance is breath taking and beautiful. They are both in danger and it seems as though time is slipping through their hands as grains of sand slip through an hourglass. There's only so much time before the "Farther" soilders find him, the villiage Elder's figure out that Lia's been harboring a fugitive all this time, it's as if she's racing against the clock to get him to a secret orginzation called the Thorns who can help him.
The dystopian world that Kate Avery Ellison has created is hauntingly beguiling and indescribably melancholy. This stark dreary world is brimming with chaos and danger, twisting around every corner, that will definitely find you on the edge of your seats. It is a novel that many fans of dark dystopia is sure to enjoy.
