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.

I really loved the first book in this series, Stork. So I was super excited about Frost. Frost didn’t let me down at all but it didn’t meet the very high bar that Stork set for me. I just didn’t enjoy it as the first book. My favorite part of Frost and Stork are the legends and myths that are worked into the storyline. It really adds something special to the books.

Kat is just as awesome as she was in the first book. I love how confident she seems to be in trusting her intuition and following her gut. It really seems like she is growing into herself as a stork. I really felt for her for pretty much this whole book. It just seems like it stunk to be her. Jack was being so standoffish for so much of the story and it really bugged me. Once I figured out what was going on (even though I had an inkling early on) I accepted the reason why and I guess that excuses him but I still wanted to see him do more. I thought he was kind of a jerk up until the end of the greenland trip and then even after he didn’t do much to make it up to Kat. I just wanted to see some more of the Jack that I saw and loved in Stork.

The best part about Frost was the story of the Snow Queen. I thought it was super interesting and I loved seeing all the icelandic legends. If you enjoy mythology or legends, especially norse ones you should check out the Stork trilogy.
