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.


The cover in no way accurately captures Brigid. She is one evil woman.

A very good climax. This book kept me wanting more with each page. I love the legends that are brought to life. It is nice that they aren't common legends to most. I would not wish her life on anyone else. Katla doesn't seem to have the most awesome or majestic powers. But she does have a fierce loyalty and determination to set things right.

Frost is a very nice sequel to Stork. I wonder just what Katla and Jack will get up to next. Just when you think they have seen it all something else magical steps out of the woodwork and sweeps them off on another adventure. Definitely worth the time to read this book.
