(ARC) Book Review (422): Frostfire (Kanin Chronicles #1) - Amanda Hocking

Frostfire (Kanin Chronicles #1)

Frostfire is the first book in the spin-off series from Amanda Hocking's Trylle trilogy.

The focus is on the Kanin troll tribe and Bryn Aven, an outcast half-blood who as a tracker is determined to rise in rank and one day work for the Kings Guard, and protect the  Royal Family.

When a wanted Kanin fugitive Konstantin Black who has a history with Bryn, is found to be attempting to kidnap high ranking changelings before the trackers can retrieve them, Bryn is determined to capture him once and for all.

With a possible forbidden romance between Bryn and her boss Ridley on the horizon, there is much to love in this new series.

With appearances of characters from the Trylle series spread throughout the story, there is something here for old fans as well as new ones, and while I do recommend reading the Trylle trilogy first you could read Frostbite without having read the previous books.

I love Amanda's writing style and I can't wait for the next book, while this didn't exactly end on a cliff-hanger it seemed to end suddenly and left me anxiously needing book two.

Drawn in from the first page, this was an exciting, action packed story with intriguing characters and an extremely enjoyable plot.

If you're after a great read, be sure to pick this book up.

I give this 4/5 stars.

Amanda Hocking is a lifelong Minnesotan obsessed with Batman and Jim Henson. In between watching cooking shows and drinking too much Red Bull Zero, she writes young adult urban fantasy and paranormal romance.

  1. I agree that it wasn't a cliffhanger, but was definitely kind of a sudden ending. Great review! You can check out my review HERE.
