Review of Silver Frost by Kailin Gow

Synopsis: "Breena, the beautiful half fairy, half human princess from Oregon, has ascended to her rightful place in Feyland, as Queen of the Summer Kingdom. Secretly in love with her intended Winter Prince Kian, now Breena is faced with the realization of war, and the possibility of Kian as her greatest enemy."

My Review: Well I am going to have a hard time getting through this review, about as much as I did getting through the book. Its a shame because there is just so much potential there but the characters just drive me batty. I swear the MC, Breena, is bi-polar or something, she gives me whip lash with her crazy moods and ideas. All through the book it talks about how mature she is and how she wants to be a good leader and dedicates every thing she has to the people, but no matter how much it is said in the book, more than half she is just a selfish brat who only thinks of herself and her love for Kian. Gow has even done away with most of the subcharacters that I liked in the last book, which was really my only hope for enjoying the rest of the series. I hate to give such a bad review but there are just too many flaws for me to look past. The spelling errors and misuse of words drove me up a wall, I may just have to take a red pen to the next one.

My Rating: I really can't find much I did enjoy about the book except potentially great ideas that never get to come out fully. I have to give this one One Paw and a Stump Wag. I have the next book in this series and will read it but I won't be getting any more of this series.

This book was read for the Mount TBR challenge


  1. Hey! I've read a book with a "bipolar" MC and I know exactly what you're talking about. It's so freaking annoying! Sorry this one didn't live up to it's potential.

    1. It drives me up a wall, I am thankful I only have one book left. It really is a shame because there is so much potential with different characters it might have pulled together.
