Great beauty hides dark secrets...

Seventeen-year-old Anastasia Lockhart has never led an easy life, but when she starts getting into serious trouble, she's sent to live with her grandparents in Cedar Falls. The small, picturesque town hasn't changed since she visited four years ago, with one exception - the presence of a handsome, mysterious boy named Frost. Despite warning from her grandparents and friends to stay away from From, Anastasia can't deny their attraction, and the more time they spend together, the deeper in love they fall. Unfortunately, Frost has a secret that is beyond Anastasia's wildest imagination, and she soon finds herself in the midst of a supernatural legend that has haunted Cedar Falls for years.

Can Anastasia and Frost's love really overcome anything, or are their fates much darker.

The setting of Frostbitten is really pretty. It’s set in a small, idyllic town in Canada, in the midst of a wintery forest. For that aspect alone I already liked the book. I love it when books are set in some idyllic town in the middle of nowhere, they always spark my imagination.

Anastasia was overall a lovely character. In the past she had made some bad mistakes, hung out with the wrong crowd. But nothing that most teenagers won’t do. So when she is sent to live with her grandparents for the rest of the school year Anastasia is determined to get her life back on track. Some of the things that Anastasia had to face in her new school were sad. But I also had a hard time believing some of the horrible things that were done to her or said by her. I know that people, especially teenagers, can be cruel to each other. But this just seemed a bit unreal to me. In the end she also learns who her true friends really are and she learns to be herself again.
Frost is a really cute guy. He’s a bit of a mystery since no one really ever talks to him so no one knows anything about him. You could clearly see from the beginning of the book that he was a genuine nice guy. It was another good aspect of this book, since nowadays it seems like the girl always has to fall in love with the bad guy. So I really liked it that Frost was a good guy. But I kind of missed the development in their relationship. It happened way too quickly for me. Frost was also not developed enough for my taste. We still know so little about him and his past and family. I wouldn’t have mind if we got to know him deeper. But that might be the case in the second book in this series, I certainly hope so.

The action and the paranormal elements were well done in this book. The author has a really descriptive way of writing. So I had a very vivid image of what was going on. This definitely added to the suspense of the book. Near the end of the book the author also threw in some folklore, I really hope that she will explore this more in the following books. This series has a lot of potential to be great. So I hope that it will have a thrilling sequel.

Overall I really liked Frostbitten. It’s a good young adult paranormal read. I liked the characters, especially Anastasia, and I really would like to see how they develop in the rest of the series. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a new young adult paranormal read.
