Bitter Frost - Kailin Gow (Book 1 Bitter Frost Series)

(purchase it here)
All her life, Breena had always dreamed about fairies as though she lived among them...beautiful fairies living among mortals and living in Feyland. In her dreams, he was always there the breathtakingly handsome but dangerous Winter Prince, Kian, who is her intended. When Breena turns sixteen, she begins seeing fairies and other creatures mortals don t see. Her best friend Logan, suddenly acts very protective. Then she sees Kian, who seems intent on finding her and carrying her off to Feyland. That's fine and all, but for the fact that humans rarely survive a trip to Feyland, a kiss from a fairy generally means death to the human unless that human has fairy blood in them or is very strong, and although Kian seemed to be her intended, he seems to hate her and wants her dead.

I will admit that I read the description and thought why not? Sounds good. Well it really wasn't. I don't want to say it, but the description is very misleading. No in the book does "Kian" want Breena dead and he never once states such. He treats her with the utmost respect and citing knightly ethics many of the times. NOT that there is anything wrong with that, but it leaves for no antagonist. I really wanted to like this book but it was hard. I will read the second one hoping that the issues with this book has to do with it being the first one. In many places the dialog crosses the border to cheesey, as well as the entire book feeling rushed. The "villain" appears briefly and then is lost. The entire book is rushed and that would probably have to to with the length. At 81 pages this "book" is actually more like a short story.

The next story "Forever Frost" will make or break this series for me. I don't see how it has so many stars on Amazon to be honest. I personally don't believe it's worth the $8.99 they are charging for it. If you want to read it, borrow it from your local library.
