    I honestly never thought I d say this, but Frost is even better than Mist The stakes are higher, the romance isintense although still appropriate for MG readers , and the action is farexciting After spending two months far north, trying to open the iron camps and release their elders, Evan had to return to help the other Elven children, but he is not the lighthearted boy he once was Watching his parents and hundreds of other Elven waste away in the iron camps changed him, made hi I honestly never thought I d say this, but Frost is even better than Mist The stakes are higher, the romance isintense although still appropriate for MG readers , and the action is farexciting After spending two months far north, trying to open the iron camps and release their elders, Evan had to return to help the other Elven children, but he is not the lighthearted boy he once was Watching his parents and hundreds of other Elven waste away in the iron camps changed him, made him mistrustful of all humans, including Nell During those two months, Nell tried to go back to her usual, everyday life, but a part of her remained with the Elven and especially with Evan When Star comes to her for help, terrified and panicky, Nell is ready to do anything to save Evan s world She saw shadows start to move on his face, like last time when he d told her about his family in the iron camp This time, as he d told her how cold they d become, and how they d walked for days, hardly sleeping, snow formed on his eyelashes and frost on his face. The harps that are keeping the Elven world alive are slowly going quiet Without them, there will be noforest behind the mist, no place the Elven kids can call their own They would be forced to come to the human world, where they would surely be hunted down by the Watchers and forced into iron camps There are no adults they can turn to, only Nell and Evan.This time, the sweetest almost couple hadthan just prejudice and fear to fight they had to join forces against the cold hearted ice Elven A brother and a sister, Loki and Laki, showed up in Nell s little town and turned Nell s older sister and her friends into mindless servants While immune to their powers, Nell was still desperate to protect her sister Gwen In Frost, the world around Evan and Nell expanded evenand Kathryn James was really able to let her imagination run wild When she combined that with her beautiful writing, what resulted was a book that was rich and magical, gentle andsatisfying than any fairy tale.Nell was evenfierce and daring in this book, and rightfully so She did achieve the impossible last time after all Evan, while wounded and traumatized, still kept showing his sweet side, especially around Nell All the loose ends were tied in Frost so I don t think there ll be another book, but I can hope, right For someone who doesn t even read Middle Grade, I m enjoying this seriesthan I can put into words

    It was just as good as the first book, it had me at the edge of my seat almost the whole time and it was truly wonderful I love the characters and their snarky comments, and also how good the elven world is described with such ease that you can just picture it To sum it up, I really like these two books and will be reading them again in the future.

    Review posted at Amaterasu Reads And just when I thought Mist was a good read, the follow up novel wowed me a little bit .The story picks up some time after the events in Mist Nell s sister, Gwen, is safe, but something is different with her Gwen keeps on doodling an Elven s face on her notebook, someone she can t forget, Fen Evan s bid to free the Elven from the iron camps in Siberia has changed him, but the real danger arrived faster than Nell expected The Harps in the Elven land ar Review posted at Amaterasu Reads And just when I thought Mist was a good read, the follow up novel wowed me a little bit .The story picks up some time after the events in Mist Nell s sister, Gwen, is safe, but something is different with her Gwen keeps on doodling an Elven s face on her notebook, someone she can t forget, Fen Evan s bid to free the Elven from the iron camps in Siberia has changed him, but the real danger arrived faster than Nell expected The Harps in the Elven land are dying, and along with it comes a deadly, seemingly endless Winter and the emergence of the Ice Elven Nell must once again go into the Mist, her mission a little deadlier than the last time, and this time she s the only hope of the Elven world s survival.It was so nice to read of the old Nell onceShe s still a figure on the fringes of her sister s clique but unlike before, she doesn t wonder why it s like that Nell has accepted she s different, and that s not exactly a bad thing Despite of her panic attacks, Nell still had that spunk in her that I loved reading of in Mist One of the things that irritated me in this book though, is how Evan was after his stay in Siberia I know it must be hard and very frustrating, to have something you want to get to be so close and yet you can t do anything to get it But is giving Nell the cold shoulder helping him achieve his goal of saving his parents and younger sister It felt unfair, considering how Nell helped the Elven in the previous book.Kathryn James amped the action up one big notch in Frost The way the story flows is just something that will make you want to stick throughout Nell s adventure and never put the book down until you find out how it all ends What was lacking in Mist, that something that will make the readers feel that there s really a threat in the Elven world, is palpable in Frost The emergence of the Ice Elven, Loki and Laki, of two intriguing characters which will make one s perception of them change in a blink is definitely a plus in the story Are they a friend A foe I m still wary of them, but they both proved to be another great addition to the world of the Fay.Though Mist had it s predictably in a lot of the scenes, Frost sure took my breath away with some unexpected turn of events that Kathryn James added in the story The introduction of the Vanir in the story, the way Evan and Nell races against time to save a dying world while tackling distractions from both the Elven and the humans, all of that contributed to Frost being such a great read I enjoyed reading Frost a wholethan I did reading Mist, not just because of the great flow of the story, but because Nell, even Evan, and the rest of character has grown up, became a little bit wiser, stronger, braver and hadcourage to face the dangers the world has in store for them I loved how despite going through tough challenges and trials, of wanting to give up at times but pushing on no matter how big the odds are against them, there were moments between Evan and Nell that just made me feel how innocent they still both are and their budding feeling for each other certainly made me feel like they were still teens starting to discover amazing things like love, and first kiss amidst all of the dangers they re in.Loose ends tied neatly together, conflicts resolved, budding romances established, families united, a world saved, whatcan you ask for Kathryn James did a great job in wrapping up Nell and Evan s tale as well as that of the Elven world I wish there wasI wouldn t mind diving back into this magical, mystical world Kathryn has created onetime Maybe a Fen and Gwen spin off Because Gwen had a spunkiness inside of her that I wouldn t mind reading about Or maybe a short story about Loki, how despite being an Ice Elven, where everyone thinks you are heartless, you are still capable of caring for things and people that matter to you Reading the Mist series has proved to be an enjoyable experience Recommended for younger teens, and those who are older but want to experience the magic of being in a new fantasy world, this series is for you
