I haven't read anything by this author for ages & I'm so glad I've found her again, this spinoff series is equally as captivating as its predecessor!!
Pandora is a 20yr old Vampire that can hide herself by pulling shadows around her. It's a gift she's had since she can remember & certainly since before she was made a vampire aged 15yrs, by choice!! She is a master thief that uses her ability to free the slaves of the Head Vampire's, from different City's, whilst also making loads of cash doing daring heists!!
Something happened when her best friend & only love, Jax, turned 16. He & all of their enclave betrayed her but she's had her memory blocked as its too painful for her to face!! He finds her in NYC & through circumstance gets to spend 7days with her & she won't attempt to run from him. During that time he tries to convince her to take the Vampire Cure in Florida from the Conduits.
What will Pandora decide? Can she ever face what their betrayal was? Is she ready to stop running & see her Father again? Read this book & find out 😉
This is a really entertaining, gripping & at times edge of the seat read!! I've got book 2 'Freeze' downloaded & ready to read 😊
Titans and vampires, what a mix, a lot of mystery, unrequited love story, kidnapping and unexpected surprises chucked in. The invisible thief frustrating the Vampire overlords whilst her first love appears and causes mayhem to her life with a secret he can't tell her.... and her father wanting to kill her because of what she is and nobody will answer the question, then Sam appears and adds to the mystery. Looking forward to the next book in the serie
“...even a super-speedy vamp with the ability to disappear can't escape her own destiny.”
This is a neat book and Pandora (Dory) is a great character with just the sort of kick-a** attitude I adore. She’s gone through much pain and massive betrayal by her father (her mom having killed herself long ago), and pretty much everyone she knew including Jax, the love of her life. Dory goes through quite a ride in this first book of the Midnight Ice series in a plot that’s full of action, betrayal, thrills, and very much unpredictable twists and turns. The supporting cast is superb, especially the complex Jax who I suspect readers will never fully understand until the series ends, and the mysterious Sam who I am sure is going to be essential to the series. There’s a bit of a cliffhanger at the end here, and many more questions of huge importance left unanswered, but the ride is still worth taking and it’s fun enough that my “definitely worth reading” recommendation is unchanged despite how much I dislike that sort of ending.
PS: after the book ends there is an excerpt from the next book which actually helps - a bit - with the unanswered questions about Sam and takes much of the sting out of that bit of a cliffie at the end.
PPS: I’ve not actually read Kaitlyn Davis’ Midnight Fire series and can confirm that you don’t need to have read it in order to totally enjoy Frost. It is totally standalone, though I’m sure that I’ve simply missed crossover characters and plot elements that I’d have known if I’d read those books.
Frost is a Vampire book with a difference! It was so nice to read a Vampire book with a unique twist. I love Vampire books and this one in particular caught my eye. The cover is beautiful and extremely eye catching!
The 3 main Characters are Pandora who was once a Titan but now a Vampire Thief. Jax who belongs to the Titans a group of trackers, hunters, bolters, and other groups tasked with capturing any misbehaving supernaturals. They are responsible for making sure the supernatural world remained totally secret and separate from the human realm. Then Sam, who is a mysterious unknown force.
The story begins with Pandora and her journey as a Vampire Thief. She is on the run from the Titans and many Powerful Vampires who she has stolen from for earnings.
Pandora is approached by another vamp and asked to steal a sword from a very powerful Vampire. She accepts! Unbeknown to her it is a set up and things start to become a little sticky when she is captured.
It is here we get to meet Sam again. Sam tries to help Pandora to become one with her unique powers. We don't know who Sam is or why he stalks Pandora. But we do know he is trying to help her escape.
Jax is Pandora's childhood best friend. Before Jax became a Titan he made a promise to Pandora that he would refuse to become a Titan Tracker and run away with her. However unfortunately this was not meant to be.
Four years later Jax has been tasked with finding Pandora and bringing her home to the Titans.
Jax rescues Pandora and so their eventful journey begins.
Pandora is so fierce and strong. She knew exactly what she wanted and even as a Vampire she tried to save others which isn't the "norm" for Vamps.
Jax and Pandora relationship is very temperamental. They know each other so well, a little too well at times! There is a passionate chemistry brewing between the two of them and you can really feel the heat rise as the more time they spend together the more they sizzle. Which is becoming dangerous!
I loved Sam he was so mysterious and dark yet he had an undercurrent of power and masculinity and danger! Even towards the end I still don't know who Sam is! I wonder if he is Pandora's alter ego! But I can't wait for the next instalment to find out.
Kaitlyn's writing was so strong just what is needed when writing about vampires. I loved all the little twists. Pandora's unique abilities are so different they are exciting. I loved all the fresh supernatural characters the Titans and the Conduits they gave a different edge on the typical Vampire Hunter. The idea of a cure for Vampirism is exciting.
Every page I was hooked it was fast paced, Exciting, Action packed, Fresh and current, Strong exciting Characters, all the little twists and turns.
I CAN'T wait for the next book. It was left on a cliffhanger and I want more! I need answers!
Highly recommend this not just to fans of Vampire books but to anyone who likes fantasy and supernatural books. A fantastic, Fresh read, something for everyone.
I would like to thank the publishers for giving me the opportunity to read this great Book.
I received this book from the Publisher for a fair review via NetGalley.
Frost is a very enjoyable paranormal novel which is fast paced. It is set in the same world as the midnight fire series, I have not read them yet but it did not impact the story or my enjoyment of it. However, what stopped this book from getting a higher rating was that the story was predictable and not all that original.
Pandora is sassy and independent but is also hurting and is running from her past and while she is a thief, she is ultimately battling wrongs. Jax has good banter with Pandora and is protective but he is suffering from guilt. Sam is very mysterious and I felt I did not get to know him very well but I guess we will discover more in the next book.
This book ends on a cliff-hanger and I am looking forward to reading the next book Freeze. I would recommend Frost to fans of YA paranormal books.
I was lucky enough to be gifted an ARC of this novel, the start to a new series and one that I found an enthralling read. The heroine is Pandora Scott. She finally ran away from her home four years ago, leaving behind the titans with whom she’d never really felt she fit in with. The only person she had really related to there was her ex-boyfriend, Jax, a tracker who has now found her again. She’s changed dramatically since she left, she’s now a vampire who has upset many very powerful vampires as she used her ability to disappear and become one with the shadows to enable her to steal some of their priceless artefacts before releasing their captives . . . . Now, fate is catching up with her. Can she keep herself safe? Why has Jax come for her now? Can she protect him from her vampire enemies?
This is a fast paced, action packed paranormal adventure featuring vampires, conduits and titans. Apparently it is a spin off from an earlier series but I can vouch that you don’t need to have read that series to enjoy this novel. Having said that, I may well look it up once I’ve lowered my tbr pile! If you enjoy reading about people with very different paranormal skills involved good v evil battles with hidden agendas, like me you’ll also probably love this story, too!
As I began the book I though I knew what was going to happen... 'boy and girl save the world with a small amount of heartache along the way'... and wow, I could not have been more wrong. The main character, Pandora has ran away from her home with the titans to become a Vampire in New York. During her transition from titan to vampire all her previous memories had been locked away and the only thing Parndora knew was that she was never going back to her previous life. That is until Jax and the mysterious Sam arrive in her life. All the way though the book I found myself predicting where the story line would take me, and every single time I was very wrong. The twists and turns kept me hanging on every word, so much so I manged to finish the book in one sitting. I cannot praise this book enough, it was not what I expected at all and I desperate to get my hands on the next book in the Midnight Ice series, there is so much more I need to know about Pandora; why do titans really want her back? who is Sam and where does he fit in to all of this? Will Jax come good?
