Frostbite by Casey Lea – Review


Blurb:

When the ice takes your friends and then comes for you, what do you do?
Amber Grace has spent countless lives preparing for battle, but her time has finally run out. She’s mortal now and can only hope that her enemy is close. That when the monster comes to devour them all, she’ll still be alive and able to offer herself instead. All Amber has to do is keep herself safe, but one thing the Universe never guarantees is safety. Forced from hiding and trapped on the Rim with the criminal scum of every interstellar species, Amber finds herself truly living in a way she hasn’t for millennia. Suddenly her choices are more than equations and the potential of billions killed must be balanced against protecting her friends. Amber finally dares to embrace her last life, but a single mistake costs everything she has won. An ancient evil reaches through the chill of space, to freeze everything it touches. Now the ice is coming… and it’s not alone.

My Review:

It’s a rare series that can make sense when dropped into the middle of it. I haven’t read IceFlight yet (Though I’m adding it to my ”TBR” pile), but Casey Lea crafts an imaginative and easy-to-follow universe that allows easy integration no matter where in the series you stop in.

I found this story incredibly engaging and wonderfully delicious in its complexity – and yet, incredibly simple to follow. A young man, escaping his over-protective mother. Another young man seeking family. A woman who wants the best for her family, and another seeking to save the universe. Simple, elegant characters that make the world of the kres, t’ssra and Harvesters one that speaks any language.

I have to say, my favourite scene was the final one, in the Court room, while searching for a new ruler of the kres race. I just thought it was so funny for Zak to be acting like a goofy teen during such a time of crisis and argument – popcorn and all.

5/5
