Review: Embers in a Dark Frost by Kelly Keaton

Embers in a Dark Frost

Published November 8th 2012
Note: This book contains sexual content.

The Fire Breathers have come. The Underworld calls. A choice must be made…

With her feared half blood and flame-colored hair, DEIRA D'ANU is a constant reminder of human betrayal and the war that claimed the light from Innis Fail. Now, darkness and frost creep across the land, strengthening the Lord of the Underworld. War is imminent—an allegiance with the Fire Breathers is vital. When their champion, Balen, sees Deira, he believes she is the key to finding the light and stopping the dark frost....

But the Underworld calls to Deira, tempting her to turn her back on a world that never cared and betray the champion willing to sacrifice everything to keep her safe and save his world from darkness.

Embers in a Dark Frost is my first High Fantasy New Adult. This genre seems to be growing and blowing up everywhere. I devoured this book and ended up wanting more!

I started reading Embers in a Dark Frost and at first I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it. The main character, Deira, felt a little erratic to me. It wasn’t until maybe six chapters in that I was able to keep up with her and quickly began to love her. Diera turned out to be a strong character that just needed a bit of time to figure herself out.

Of course my favorite, FAVORITE, thing about this novel is the romance. I can’t really say much about it because it’s one of those that as a reader you aren’t sure if it’s a good thing or a bad thing until closer till the end. I still don’t know if it’s a good thing or bad thing and I finished the book weeks ago. LOL! I will say, though, there is a huge twist to the romance. A twist, that after reading and thinking about it days later, I actually enjoyed a lot. I think it will definitely bring out all kinds of emotions in readers. I know it did for me!

Another great thing about this book is how easily it was to follow. The world building was great and the characters will make you wish they were real. There really isn’t anything negative I can say about the characters. They were consistent, realistic, and progressed a lot throughout the whole book.

Embers in a Dark Frost is definitely a great start to an amazing series. I can tell already that this is going to be one heck of a crazy emotional rollercoaster, and I am going to sit back and enjoy every minute of it. Downside? Waiting for the next book. I wish authors had multiple hands and brains so they can work on more than one book at once! LOL!

A Good Choice for Reading!

4.5 out of 5 Stars!
