Book Review... Kelly St. Clare's Fantasy of Frost

Fantasy of Frost
The Tainted Accords, Book 1
400 Pages
Published: January 14, 2015


Fantasy of Frost is the first title in The Tainted Accords. 

I know many things. What I am capable of, what I will change, what I will become. But there is one thing I will never know...

The veil I've worn from birth carries with it a terrible loneliness; a suppression I cannot imagine ever being free of.

Some things never change...

My mother will always hate me. Her court will always shun me.

...Until they do.

When the peace delegation arrives from the savage world of Glacium, my life is shoved wildly out of control by the handsome Prince Kedrick who, for unfathomable reasons, shows me kindness.

And the harshest lessons are learned.

Sometimes it takes the world bringing you to your knees to find that spark you thought forever lost.

Sometimes it takes death to show you how to live.

Join Olina in this coming-of-age fantasy. 

Warning: Cliff-hanger ending! Suitable for mature young adult readers due to swearing.

:: Barb’s 4 ½* Review ::

*Audio copy of book was received in exchange for an honest review*

First I need to say, I'm not usually a fan of YA stories, or fantasy but after reading the blurb, I was intrigued. Boy, am I glad I listened to my instincts here. I really enjoyed the book. The characters are genuine and not as far fetched as they could have been.

Lena is a girl, well a princess, the tatuma of her world who is put in a bind when she falls for the prince of the other realm. That is offset by tragedy and then, as if life doesn't suck enough, she's taken prisoner.

That status doesn't take long to change though. She grows on the people around her, even becomes friends with them, all while keeping up a vigilant watch out for a killer, and trying to keep herself out of harm's way.

The poor girl has been burdened with the task of staying hidden and not knowing exactly who she is for so long that once the time comes to unveil herself, she all but falls apart. That resolves into her need for answers. A trail is set upon to find answers which will take her from the comforts she has become accustomed to.... and lead her into a path of unknown consequences.
