I really enjoyed this book; I particularly liked the fact that it is a fantasy with the twist of having a dystopian setting. Avalon is different from most protagonists as the author has made her more realistic instead of perfect. She is quite selfish, she never thinks before she acts and she assumes that she can trust everyone. She has lots of flaws and I think that is what makes her perfect; she is a believable and lovable character. Frost Arch doesn't have much romance but there are lots of true friendship and the possibility for romance in later books in this series.
The only problem with Frost Arch is the occasional spelling and grammar mistakes as they were common enough to reduce my enjoyment of the book. I know that with self-published books it is almost expected that there will be some editing problems and I normally ignore them but there was just too many. If some more proof reading was done this book would definitely be worthy of receiving 5 stars as the characters, plot and writing are all superb.
Kate Bloomfield has done an incredible job with this book and I will most certainly be reading her other books in the future and I am looking forwards to book 2 of The Fire Mage Trilogy.
*I received this book in exchange for an honest review, this has not affected my review in any way*
My bad, different authors, but so much better the the fire mage book I previously reviewed.
I would score this 3.5 stars and round it up to 4.
I often find that some women authors tend to over compensate with women, making them into godesses who can't do anything wrong, while men appear so dumb.
It was nice to read a book that balanced the sexes and didn't over compensate.
I thought the ending of this book was a bit drawn out, could have been refined a bit more, but on the whole a nice read.
Couple of grammatical errors, you're instead of your most of the way through the book and towards the end found myself having to add some prepositions to complete the sentences, but on the whole nothing like some of the books I have read and reviewed on kindle.
As this is a trilogy, I look forward to reading the next book.

I enjoyed reading Frost Arch. The concept of an evolved species is novel one and well planned by the author. However, I did find some parts a little bit too drawn out.Published on 5 July 2013 by M Mulla
Lots of incidents, quite a good pace for the action. Characterisation of main character is quite good, subsidiary characters are a bit more sketchy. Read morePublished on 7 Dec. 2012 by Lynne Mackaness
An good story, nicely paced though lots of loose ends which I hope will be cleared up in the sequels. Read morePublished on 19 Jun. 2012 by wendyp817
