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.
My Thoughts...
I've yet to find a book by Kailin I don't like and from her track record so far I don't think that's going to happen.
Bitter Frost is the first book in the Frost series, a fast paced, entertaining read, which is a great debut to what seems to be a great series.
Pretty much right from the start we're into the action, Breena wakes up on her sixteenth birthday and from that point forward life will never be the same.
After an incident at her home after school she discovers that Logan her best and only friend is not exactly human and neither is she.
And those dreams that she's been having for as long as she can remember about a boy named Kian and his sister Shasta , she has dreamed of them since they were children, they were both promised to each other to marry, but a war between the Summer Court and the Winter Court (where Kian is Prince has nullified their marriage promise) she finds that they're real and he saves her and takes her into Feyland, where he acts cold and indifferent towards her.
She discovers that there is a warrant with her name on it and Kian has arrested her to take her to the Winter Court to be seen by the Queen.
And so their adventure begins through Feyland and constant attacks and kidnappings, which only add to the drama and excitement that this book delivers.
I can't wait to continue on with this series and see where Breena, Kian and Logan's adventures take them, and after the ending in this book I'm eager to find out how the ending resolves itself.
A great read and one I suggest everybody checks out.
I give this 4/5.
