    THIS FREAKING BOOK ADDED TO FAVORITES LIST PREORDERED WITH NO HESITATION What the hell am I going to say I loved this book so freaking much There were some sad things toward the end and I don t know if they can ever be mended but one can hope This book pulled at all of my FEELS I CAN NOT BELIEVE Coco Ma wrote this book at 15 years of age She s freaking amaze balls If I could write this good at 15 I would have been a star Hell, If I could write this good now, I could be a star Shadow Frost is the YA Fantasy book I never knew I needed THIS, is what YA Fantasy should be in all shapes and forms Yes, I have a few favorite authors and books in this genre, but damn Coco Ma just jumped right into my little capsule of favorite authors Okay, let me get to the book Holy crap on a cracker, let me keep this short and not give anything away Princess Asterin is a bad ss princess through and through She is NOT the sit around and let men fight for me princess Oh she has guards etc, but she conned all of them from a little girl to show her how to fight, pick locks, you name it She also has magic, but that s a whole other ball game Asterin is not ordered around by any man boy she fights her own fights and has some freaking amazing friends They all love each other and protect each other as much as they can There is a little thing at the end but it s just one of those horrible decision things No win situation But this particular situation has me conflicted I feel for both sides There is a monster demon thing going around killing people in Asterins realm This does not sit well will her so she tells her mom, The Queen, she is going out and killing the monster with her magic And no, she doesn t take any lip there either She has magic, she has friends with magic and she has a couple of new guards with magic And we are off Turns out not everyone on this journey is what they seem and this is not really a bad thing I love each and every person and all of the women are bad ssed in their own way THE PEEPS I LOVE AsterinLunaRoseOrionQuinlanEadricHarryTheir horses which seem to have a mind of their own at timesAmoux sword, just because it s Asterin s sword and it s a sword and a certain someone that is also a thing but I can t tell you about this certain someone thing There is a tiny bit of grimdark in this book There is some swearing Mainly Asterin calling a certain boy sshole all of the time There were times I had some good laughs with the comedic side to the story I m just going to shut up now because I m rambling Just read it and if you don t like it then fine But if you like bad ss chics who rule, you will love it Yes, some of the women throw the men around but so what, they all have fun either way There is also a little boy boy love if you want that as well Everything is well rounded in my opinion and I can t wait for a reread with the actual book in my hand I will leave you with a quote Now this is an uncorrected proof so said quote could change I would like to add a million quotes but I digress Enjoy Quinlan s fists clenched Asterin Get back here Orion felt her anger spike, as tangible as fire The princess whirled around You do not have the right to tell me what I can and cannot do, Quinlan Holloway This is my duty I will not let anything or anyone stop me from defeating the demon that took the lives of hundreds of innocent people my people And if I fail to avenge them, I do not deserve the throne Quinlan faltered I didn tI just meant that And further, let me remind you that you re here officially as a soldier serving my kingdom, and therefore under my command, prince or no You will obey my word or return to the palace The choice is yours But do not, under any circumstance, rule me With that, Asterin spun on her heel and strode away The dense foliage of the forest swallowed her in darkness in less than a second Thank you to Netgalley and the Pub for giving me the opportunity to read this awesome book Mel MY BLOG

    First thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for sending me a copy of that book I don t even know where to start hahaFirst let s talk about the story, the plot, the twistsI loooooooved the idea of this story, I loved the elemental magic I have a soft spot for it The plot is simple a princess with her crew going after a monster, a beast who is killing people They need to put it down fast Simple but it worked so much because it left the necessary space for plot twists and storytellingThe twists I feel like there was way too many twists in the book put there and there and there again I didn t understand to point of them all but the writing style made up for it because I really didn t mind them while reading the book.The characters I loved them all This is so weird because it has actually never happened to me to not have a preference I loved all the characters in that book, I loved them all We had a background story for each character I think the mutiple point of views helped with that as it felt natural I didn t feel as we were getting to many information about them They were also very different to each other.Asterin, the main character, the princess was a badass Luna, the princess friend doesn t remember her past, and struggle with her magicRose is the Queen of another kingdomOrion trained Asterin to be a warrior and he is pretty badass himselfEadric is Luna s lover such a cute little couple Quinlan is a brilliant warrior as wellHarry, a hunter who joined them laterSo I was so committed to the story from page one I have to be honest I was pretty impressed But I had some issues with the way the story evolved I feel like the characters relationships were going to fast Like they didn t know each other and then two days later they were best friends It juste didn t make sense to me And also the fact that we were reading one twists after another at some point made me questionned myself as if the author decided to change the story even if in the middle of it it s like the author had an idea of where the story would go and then in the middle of the story decided to change it a little bit But even with that I enjoyed the story from page one until the very last word The characters were likeable and I enjoyed reading about them The story had magic, a bit of romance, friendship, lies, truth, secrets, I really did love that world it was as easy to understand everything as easy to get lost in the story I love the elemental magic It was fresh, new, different and not clich at all Well useless to say that I cannot wait for the sequel

    There are some authors I love beyond their books I appreciate their humour, the struggles they have endured, what they stand for, how nice they seem as a person, or how they use their platform to spread awareness I don t think I have ever been as impressed by an author as I am by Coco Ma, however Not only is she a musical genius but she wrote this book when she was FIFTEEN YEARS OLD This book is such a strong debut novel and the young age of the author only goes to make it seem even impressive I feel inadequate Shadow Frost follows Princess Asterin Faelenhart She is not your typical lady at court, preferring sparring at dusk and honing her magical powers in secret than parading her figure or sitting meekly as the Queen would see her do But Asterin has been unknowingly training for a task ahead of her and the safety of the entire realm is at risk if she fails A demon is lurking, a plot has been hatched, and trust has been breached.This was such a consistently intriguing and thrilling read The magic that formed much of the initial focus was unique in its construction and it played its part inside a story line that was just as exciting to read about Asterin s fiesty nature made her an immediately relatable protagonist who I rooted for from the very first page The trials she faced allowed her to grow without losing her spirit and I was just as enamoured with her at the story s close I can t wait to see what this author has next in store, for Asterin and for the reader I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review Thank you to the author, Coco Ma, and the publisher, Blackstone Publishing, for this opportunity.
