Wooow… This book is by far the best I’ve read from this series till now. The moment you start reading the suspense starts building. Suddenly nothing is a given anymore, there’s so much scheming going on, so many mind games… I couldn’t do anything but turn page after page. I just had to know if everything would be alright. But I wasn’t left alone for even one second to catch my breath. There’s so much happening that this book will keep you on the edge of your seat, while sincerely hoping for a happy ending. And I loved every minute!
Gwen’s task is slowly but surely revealed, finally . Although a stare in the face, it still get’s more interesting by the minute. With Nike’s guidance on how to complete her task, it looks like it will be about many different kind of creatures, so I’m thrilled and curious how everything will go. Which mythological creatures will I meet along the way? What will their stories be? I can’t wait to find out!
Talking about Gwen, she sure had a grow spurt in Crimson Frost. Finally no more idiotic or thoughtless behavior. Only well-thought plans and successful operations, well… most of the time. But you can’t expect miracles, can you Anyway she’s back to the spunk-ass heroine I liked so much in A Touch of Frost. Someone who’s willing to do everything she can for her friends. Someone who has her heart in the right place and knows what to do in dire situations. Now I can finally see why Nike chose her ^^
4 HEARTS. I liked this book so much more than the others. Everything those lacked, I could find here. It’s a stunning story that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Cause it’s impossible to predict what will happen. And the only way to find out is by reading the next page. I was also very happy with Gwen, who made a tremendous improvement. No more annoying heroine!
