Book Review: Frostfire by Amanda Hocking
Frostfire by Amanda Hocking
This is a wonderful young adult novel that will appeal to a wide range of ages. Bryn is the heroine of the story and she belongs to the hidden tribe of Kanin. But she is only half-Kanin, her mother is from another tribe, and as a person of mixed blood she stands out in her community with her long blonde hair, pale skin and blue eyes.
She is working towards becoming a member of the elite guard who protect the Kanin royal family, and she is determined that nothing will get in her way, especially not a forbidden romance with her boss, Ridley.
But her current job is that of being a tracker, and she regularly goes out into the regular human community, who are unaware of the existence of the various tribes and their special powers. Things become dangerous and complicated when Kanin children in the regular human world are kidnapped. To make matter worse, the person doing the kidnapping is Konstantin. He used to be her hero and she adored him from afar – until the day he tried to murder her beloved father.
Amanda Hocking has created a fascinating world, with its own set of rules and regulations, and unique way of life. Bryn is a strong female character, determined in her goals, but also vulnerable when it comes to affairs of the heart. A very enjoyable read and I will look forward to the next in the series.
