Did I enjoy this book? I did, but not as much as the Trylle trilogy.

Bryn is a pretty good character. She is determined and she works hard. She’s good at what she does, but she is young and naive and more often than not it shows . . . especially in the end. I’m not going to tell you what happened, but the ending does not strike me as something a tracker who wants to be a member of the royal guard would do. I’m just saying.

While I loved being be back in the Trylle world, I didn’t love the pace of this book. It was slow. The kind of slow where I put this book down, read other books, and then decided to pick it up again. It wasn’t a book that I had to read beginning to end in one sitting. However, I will continue with the series. I do want to know what happens next.

Would I recommend it? Yes, but not if this is your first Amanda Hocking book. I would definitely start with the Trylle trilogy.


Have you read Frostfire? What about the Trylle trilogy




About the book – from Goodreads: Bryn Aven is an outcast among the Kanin, the most powerful of the troll tribes.

Set apart by her heritage and her past, Bryn is a tracker who’s determined to become a respected part of her world. She has just one goal: become a member of the elite King’s Guard to protect the royal family. She’s not going to let anything stand in her way, not even a forbidden romance with her boss Ridley Dresden.

But all her plans for the future are put on hold when Konstantin– a fallen hero she once loved – begins kidnapping changelings. Bryn is sent in to help stop him, but will she lose her heart in the process?



Happy 2

  1. […] I said in my review, Frostfire was a slow read for me. Frostfire was building to something, but I wasn’t sure […]
