Original Review by Mommy and We
Once again, Michel Prince has amazed me with her writing. I got the chance to work with Michel for the first time with Chrysalis, her YA Paranormal Romance. This time, she offered me the chance to read Frozen. A much darker, much sexier (right up my alley!!) Paranormal Romance. I loved it! I'm always telling you how I like it if a book pulls me in as one of the characters. She did that and more as Kiriana and Nye ventured down their paths to be together.
Nye was a slave in the 1800's who, tired of being a whipping boy, committed suicide. He was given the chance by the angel Gabriel to become one of the Frozen; to fight demons on Earth. One day while fighting a demon bringing a bantling through, his partner, Dilana accidentally shoots Kiri, who is out on a run, in the leg with a poisoned arrow. Nye, knowing immediately that for some reason he can't let her go, brings her back to the compound to heal.
Their love develops, but there are many obstacles to overcome. Kiri is HIV positive because of a lot of bad choices in her younger years. Nye can't bring himself to feel it's "right" to touch a white woman, let alone love her. Can he really take her as his other?
As we follow Nye and Kiriana, we meet several other characters including Kiri's best friend, DJ and we also get to learn about the demons and get the story from their point of view.
I love a story with a twist and boy, did I get one close to the end!
The Frozen is well-written and should be at the top of your to-read list. The sex scenes are detailed, so it's not a book for everyone but if you're like me, it's PERFECT for you! I can't wait til the next in the series!
Synopsis: You close your eyes and finally make the decision to end your life only to have him show up. Gabriel, here to give you a second chance at salvation. They say he’s an angel, but then again, they don’t have to serve under him. He offers you a chance to be a member of the Frozen, a group of demon hunters. Serve your sentence and you can ascend to heaven. Refuse? Well, the punishment's been clearly laid out in the scriptures. It’s a last chance. But when your body is frozen in time, can your heart still beat?
Nye, a former slave who lost his love and was tired of being under the control of another, ended his life in 1859. His stubborn ways kept him under Gabriel’s thumb and from ascending to Heaven. Feeling that a woman was the cause of his downfall, Nye hasn’t had the urge for a woman for over a hundred and fifty years. Knowing he has less than seven years left until he earns salvation, he's staying on the straight and narrow – until a woman gets caught in the crossfire during a demon hunt.
Receiving devastating news, Kiriana moves across the country only to get caught up in the world of The Frozen. With each passing moment, Nye and Kiriana are pulled into an attraction that could be their ultimate demise. Or their greatest salvation.
All the while Damarion, is leading a group of female demons as they try to protect the demons sent from Hell to obtain the souls of humans. Being assigned to Earth as a punishment for crimes against the royal family, Damarion learns that there are dangers within his coven trying to take him down and stop him from returning to his love, still trapped in Hell. A love he was so sure was true...
