Bitter Frost Review

Bought it via kindle
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.

Bitter Frost, was the Award-Winning Finalist in two categories - "Fiction: Chick-Lit/Women's Literature" and "Cross-Genre Fiction" of the 2011 International Book Awards, where Kailin Gow won first place overall in Fiction Horror, joining winners from St. Martin's Press, Simon & Shuster, Zondervan, and Random House. She joins other winners such as Bishop Desmond Tutu and Rick Warren in the 2011 International Book Awards.

Kailin Gow's books has been recommended by the Parents Teachers Association, PBS Kids, and a Sr. U.S. Senator and her daughter. President Obama's daughter Malia has stated she is reading the FROST Series
I have been waiting eagerly to get my hands on the series for quite a bit now the cover art is truly eye catching and I have always been a sucker for a good fairy story.
Bitter Frost was very well written and I quickly tore through it. My only problem was that it seemed like a watered down version of Julie Kagawa’s Iron Fey series.
Don’t get me wrong, the two are not exactly alike, there are several differences that make this tale unique and just as good, but as I was reading it I could not help but feel that sense of familiarity.
Favorite Quotes:
1. Dreams, my mother always told me, represent part of our unconsciousness- the place where we share the true part of our soul, away from the rest of the world.
2. “That’s disgusting! “ I said. “I’m…in fairy heat?”
Favorite Charrie:
Luke. Werewolf vs. Fairy boy? NO contest. Lol
