Happy Book Birthday to Frost by Wendy Delsol!
Katla LeBlanc is no stranger to the extraordinary. In fact her everyday life has begun in many ways to mimic that of a somewhat mixed up modern day fairy tale. While on the outside it may seem that she lives a relatively normal teenage existence in the small remote town of Norse Falls, Minnesota-deep down there’s a part of Kat’s life even she herself can hardly believe exists.
You see Kat is a stork, a secret member of an ancient society charged with the gift and duty of placing the souls of unborn babies with the appropriate “vessel” or mother. A legacy passed down from her Icelandic ancestors, this gift of both prophecy and power is still new to Kat as she learns the ways and beliefs of those who have come before her.
And as unbelievable as that may seem, it’s not the end of the uniqueness that is Katla LeBlanc. The newfound love of Kat’s life is also a mythical being brought into reality. Jack, the gorgeous boy who not only controls Kat’s heart but on occasion the weather itself is none other than a direct descendant of the legendary Jack Frost. Their relationship has quickly become that of legend as well as they find that they seem to be linked by an almost cosmic-like power. However the powers that bind them seem to also be charged with danger as enemies emerge.
As readers of the first novel in the series will recall being involved in a romance of magical proportions has its advantages but can Kat and Jack withstand forces beyond their knowledge? As both the Storks and Jack’s somewhat unpredictable ability come upon hard times, a new unexpected enemy may threaten not just their love but also the world, as they know it. When a un-earthly new visitor comes to town Kat must learn to trust her instincts and be ready for the fight of her life as all she holds dear hangs in the balance.
In her sequel to Stork Wendy Delsol has once again beautifully woven modern day life with ancient legends and fantastic fairy tales creating a story of adventure, romance and undeniable readability. Frost proves to be not only be a worthy addition to the series but may even surpass its predecessor in its precision of both the everyday world and the magic that lies beyond.
Once again the characters of Delsol’s creation shine in this newest book and the world, which they inhabit, only becomes more and more real to its readers as the story continues. A fast placed and expertly written plot will keep readers enthralled until the very last page of Frost and hopefully will open doors to another installment in this unique series.
