In this sequel to STORK, Katla Leblanc has to employ her grit, spirit, and special gifts to rescue the boy she loves.
After the drama of finding out that she’s a Stork, a member of an ancient and mystical order of women, and that her boyfriend, Jack, is a descendent of the Winter People able to control the weather, Katla Leblanc is delighted when all signs point to a busy and peaceful Christmas.
That is, until the snowstorm Jack summons as a gift to Katla turns into the storm of the century, attracting Brigid, a gorgeous scientist who, in turn, attracts Jack. Between the school play, a bedridden, pregnant mother’s to-do lists, and keeping an eye on her aging grandfather, Katla doesn’t have time to question Brigid’s motives or deal with Jack’s increasingly cold behavior.
But Katla’s suspicions mount when Jack joins Brigid on a research expedition to Greenland, and when the two of them go missing, it becomes clear that Katla is the only one who can save her beloved Jack from the Snow Queen who holds him prisoner. Adventure, romance, and myth combine in this winter escapade for teens who like a bit of fire with their ice.

I still LOVE the world Wendy has created and I love that we never know what she has in store around the corner. Katla’s voice as a protagonist is amazing as well and you can’t help but be completely enthralled by her plea.
I really loved Jack in Stork, but I don’t know, I feel that maybe we need another strong male lead to create some tension in the story? I enjoy plot lines where the main couple’s love is tested by stronger forces and all, but I felt that Jack was too easily compelled and after all that he made Katla go through he simply wasn’t grateful and apologetic enough.
I don’t think this is something negative about the book per say, but it’s definitely something that made me annoyed, along with Katla’s single-mindedness about Jack.
The Young Hearts:
As I said about above, the romance left me unsatisfied in this one. I like Jack and all, but maybe there is someone out there that is better for Katla?
That is something I feel Wendy Desol did extremelly well! Great plot, world buiding and adventurous journey for our leading lady.
All in all, Frost was a great and one-sitting read for me and it definitely made me hunger for more from this world an characters. It’s originality and characters have what it takes to take you into the story and not let you go and I will be eagerly waiting for the next book in the series.
