I am not sure if you all have noticed that I have been currently reading Frost by Wendy Delsol or not, but I am sad to say that I finished it :[ It was one of the best books I have read in awhile. It made me cry, laugh out loud, get angry, as well as fall in love all over again with the hunky Jack Snjosson. Jack cannot only control the weather, but he can make any reader’s heart melt with his romantic side. Before I talk too much more about this book I want to share the cover and synopsis with you and then I will share why you should go pick up this book ASAP (which is October 11th) :]

Wendy Delsol’s FROST, is the sequel to her YA debut STORK.

After the drama of discovering that she’s a member of the Storks, a mystical order of women endowed with powerful abilities, Katla Leblanc is finally settling into her life in chilly Minnesota. In fact, the ex-California girl even hopes for a white Christmas. But Katla’s wintry wish unexpectedly turns into the snowstorm of the century, drawing the attention of Brigid, a gorgeous environmental researcher with an amazing array of fur coats and an unusual interest in Katla’s boyfriend, Jack.

Inspired by Norse mythology and Hans Christian Andersen’s THE SNOW QUEEN.

In case you missed my review of the first book in the series, Stork, check it out here.

Frost, was indeed ten times better than Stork. This had more of a race against time mythological story whereas in Stork, Katla was still trying to figure herself out and why she felt so close to Jack.

With most books, in today’s time, it seems like you keep reading the same story over and over with a little twist from author to author, but with Delsol it is completely different. Her books are completely original and I can’t help but to think that she has one extreme imagination that I wished I had. As I have read Stork and now Frost, I still cannot seem to predict what will happen. Once I predict something then the next page will change that prediction.

I guess to narrow my thoughts all down I would summarize it to this. Delsol you ROCK! I can only hope that there is another book or movie to be made from the epic adventure.
