Title: Frost Fire
Author: Olivia Rivers
“Magic is just like love, Allai. It won’t wait for permission before it destroys you.”
Like sand in an hourglass, Allai’s future is dwindling away. She’s spent her entire life fighting the Mages who threaten humanity, and dreams of someday eradicating magic. But all it takes is an anonymous phone call for the truth to spill out: Allai is the one thing she despises most.
She’s a Mage.
Though ancient law mandates Allai’s death, she still has one last chance of survival. His name is Drake Rhaize, and he swears he can lead Allai to a sanctuary for Mages. Allai hasn’t seen Drake in years, but she remembers him as the Demon boy who used to hold her close and softly whisper that he’d keep her safe. But Drake has changed since then: He’s now suspected of murder, and has been out-casted for betraying his own kind.
While Allai doesn’t trust Drake, she has no choice but to put her life in his hands and hope he can get her to safety. Because Allai’s father has hired a pack of Demons to bring her back to him, dead or alive–and Demons never stop the hunt.
Olivia Rivers is a high school student, a literary agent intern, and an obsessive-compulsive reader. She has a slight obsession with Kootenai County in Idaho, and she’s pretty sure life will always be awesome as long as Irish accents exist. She lives with dysautonomia, a chronic medical condition affecting her nervous system. Portions of proceeds from her “Tortured Elements” series go toward supporting youth with dysautonomia.
What I Thought:
Frost Fire was a first for me. It was the first demon book I’ve read. I don’t know why but for some reason I just never explored that type of world until now. Little did I know how much I could get sucked into a story like this one. Frost Fire opened my eyes up and I would be more likely to try more books like this now!
The characters were simply amazing. I envied Allai for living in such a unique world with all of these hot demons around her, even after everything she’s been/going through and keeping it together. Drake, oh my… was he swoon worthy or what? Girls you have been warned! But hands down Luke was my favorite I just wanted more of him.
One thing I especially loved was how all the demons were described. A lot of the time, while reading about fictional creatures, authors tend to over describe to the point that it’s confusing to picture in your mind. However I didn’t have that problem at all. Rivers did an excellent job at creating these astonishing creatures!
There was plenty of action and drama with a splash of romance mixed in. It won’t disappoint. Teens or adults and girls or guy, there is something for everyone. I would recommend you to read Frost Fire!
One last thing I have to mention… I have to give Olivia Rivers high praise for writing this book. Not only is this her debut novel but did you know that she is also a high school student?? Frost Fire is written with such elegance of an experienced writer you would have never of guessed. Olivia has a bright future ahead of her and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!
