I was out of my comfort zone reading this novel, but I have read and loved all of Marie Symeou's books so I felt this would be something special. I was not disappointed ! Marie is a highly sensitive person, a healer and a lover of animals. As I began to read FROZEN IN TIME I felt the author was taking me on a journey, a unique and insightful quest into the mind of a vampire. Has this ever been done before ? Not by a writer like Marie who has a precious, rare gift of seeing the sparkle of of good and beauty in the darkest of minds.
I enjoyed the story and found the mythology complex and fascinating, especially in the way Marie has given it a creative twist, and the way she has given the exotic characters endearingly human qualities. It's a rich. deep and satisfying read, and it's the first book of a trilogy. Wow. You are a brilliant writer, Marie.

FROZEN IN TIME

First, let me say that I totally loved this book! Right from the very first chapter it gripped me and I really couldn't put it down.

I don't think there are many novels about vampires set in ancient Greece. And, since I have a very keen interest in those times, I really wanted to read this. Having already read this author's other novel, Age of Dreams, and loving her writing style and that novel, I couldn't wait to get reading.

The well-written and intriguing prologue sets the tone for what the reader has in store in this great novel. The opening tells us that Philip is a soldier in Alexander the Great's army and that he is already tired of war. He is obviously grieving for a lost love, and in his highly intoxicated state (due to Alexander's generous offerings of wine for his army), Philip is seduced by an evil vampire (Scylla) who is disguised as his dead wife Amaranthea. She makes him a vampire and then it's instant action and it's straight into chapter one, which takes us back to how Philip and Amaranthea's relationship, and how Scylla enters their life.

The characters were really well-drawn and I liked the little flashback scenes that told me a little about each character. I found that these were done with great success and did not interfere with the story at all. It helped me sympathise with the characters more, even the villain of the piece - Scylla.

I loved the fact that this novel is told from the vampire's point of view (even though it's written in third-person). We get to experience what it's like to be a vampire and what it means to be immortal. I found myself sympathising with Philip and his pain after the loss of his dear wife, who dies in childbirth.

At times it was kinda hard to follow, but the book was interesting.

Philip is very much in love with his wife, when she dies in childbirth he is heartbroken and joins the army. There he falls under the spell of a woman who appears to look a great deal like his deceased wife. It turns out to be the blood drinker Scylla, after she turns him Philip is determined to destroy her.

Meanwhile his wife is reborn as the Swan Lady, Sirona, in the enchanted paradise of Demar, he goes there to get branches from a tree that only grows there and falls in love with her. He begs her to wait for him to return from turning Scylla to stone. But while he is away she marries Finn and returns to the mortal world where she begins to age.

By the time Philip finds her again she is an old woman on her deathbed. He promises her "Death is not the end"

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting Time 16 Jan. 2012
By Denise K. Rago - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Set in Ancient Greece this novel lures you into the world of Alexander the Great and his half brother Philip, seduced by a monsterous creature, lost in grief after the death of his wife. Themes of immortality and death as not being the end of love are woven into a rich tale of betrayal and true love.
