Book Description

31 Mar 2011 Kyndred Novel (Book 3)
As one of the genetically enhanced Kyndred, Lilah can read and control the minds of animals. Rescuing a group of kids from a wayward bear brings her to the attention of GenHance, the shadowy biotech company willing to murder to acquire superhuman DNA. After being drugged and abducted, Lilah wakes up handcuffed to a half-dead man in a refrigerated truck. Walker, a soldier critically wounded in Afghanistan, is brought back to life by Lilah's warmth and determination and resolves to protect and free her. But Lilah has more to fear than GenHance...

By Joanne K. Pilsworth VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
N.B. My first review of this book gave it four stars, which I changed to five stars after realising that clues were hidden in the book.

As with the previous reviewer, my first reading of this book left me a bit confused, as I could not see where the plot was going. However, a second reading of selected bits clarifed it. In that respect, I would say it is a lot like "Night Lost", the story of Gabriel Seran and Nicola Jefferson, from the Darkyn series.

Due to the unexpected identity of the hero of this story, I won't name names. However, I did understand how he came to be what he was, but the reader perhaps needs to be familiar with what happens to the GenHance character in 'Shadowlight' to understand how this could have occurred.

Originally, I was going to give this book four stars, because I thought it was a bit confusing. Ms Viehl has written a cracking story, and she does try to explain how things might have happened the way they are, without the reader having to have read any of her previous work. The loss of a star would be for the initial confusion. However, on a second reading, the book is peppered with clues as to this individual's identity, the most intriguing being when he and Lilah are discussing a name for him, and she suggests her grandfather's name. He is most emphatic that he does not wish to use that name. I won't say what the name is, but it is a major clue. Equally, tne start of the book gives an indication as to characters who may be involved, but it requires some consideration to work out the link. His recognition of a a weapon used by another character is a further indication. So several clues, but you have to realise what they are, and put them together so that you don't end up being totally gobsmacked by his identity at the end of the story.

I would advise that you either read this slowly, or read it at least twice!

I absolutely love (LOVE) this series, and I find each and every book beguiling, complex and compulsive - so I read them quickly, miss bits, then read them again to find all the bits I've missed and to explain everything I don't understand. Every one of these books has required a certain level of attention (you can't really skim them) in order to follow the layers of the plot.
So, we have here a story of a Kyndred (Lilah), who doesn't really know what she is until the very end of the story - although she does know that she can control both animals and people. Lilah meets a man who is being hunted by the Darkyn, but we don't connect him with this until the end of the book. In addition, Lilah is being hunted by another Kyndred, who needs her genetic material to help him live. Both of them are being hunted by GenHance, and someone else is being hunted by the Tresora. So far, so Lynn Viehl, and it all comes together at the end quite neatly.
Where it gets slightly confusing - or rather, not confusing but a bit perplexing - is how Lilah's 'man' has turned from the person the Darkyn pair are hunting into something else. Yes, it helps to know the Shadowlight background, but in Shadowlight this was made slightly clearer (if rather hurriedly) at the end of the book - actually, I found it unsatisfactory in that book as well, but it least it was 'clear-ish'. In this book it doesn't even hit 'clear-ish' - and then the Darkyn pair just accepts it in a few swift lines of dialogue along the lines of 'he doesn't smell like a Darkyn any more' and then off they go.
Given that the Darkyn have been sent by Gabriel to dispatch this individual, it's a bit perfunctory.
I have now re-read the book a few times, and the revelation of who this man is at the end of the book is still not handled well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, where is the romance? 7 April 2011
By Decca
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have read all the Darkyn and Kyndred books at least twice and I think this latest one is a weak link. Ms Viehl books have sometimes been a bit hit or miss but having really enjoyed her last Kyndred novel, I would say Frostfire is a miss.

The other reviews plot the story so I would simply say the weakness is in the "hero" - he is totally characterless, barely says a few sentences then within hours/days? the heroine is totally in love with him. We don't even have much of a physical description ourselves to identify why she does this. There is no chemistry or attraction, the scene where they first "do it", to put it politely, could have been written by a teenager in a biology lesson - insert A into B etc.

It is also immensely confusing as said in the other reviews. Who the hero turns out to be is meaningless if you have not read Darkyn books and even then, as he is so characterless, it does not tie in at all with the earlier story. And how he is turned/not turned is not revealed at all.

Ms Viehl broadens from vampires into werewolves with this novel but again, I was unsure for the heroines background - who exactly bit her?

Their powers were also unexplained - she talks to animals (and human minds) yet the descriptions between them often refers to heat and then his ice cold (the Frostfire of the title presumably) but this is again, never explained.

There is a lot in this relatively small book but too confusing to be enjoyed. Maybe it will make more sense of a second reading but a really good book should pull the reader back a second time to appreciate the layers, not to simply understand what went on in the first place.
