I know many things. What I am capable of, what I will change, what I will become. But there is one thing I will never know.
The veil I've worn from birth carries with it a terrible loneliness, a suppression I cannot imagine ever being free of.
Some things never change...
My mother will always hate me. Her court will always shun me.
…until they do.
When the peace delegation arrives from the savage world of Glacium, my life is shoved wildly out of control by the handsome Prince Kedrick, who, for unfathomable reasons, shows me kindness.
And the harshest lessons are learned.
Sometimes it takes the world bringing you to your knees to find that spark you thought forever lost. Sometimes it takes death to show you how to live.
Warning: cliff-hanger ending! Suitable for mature young adult listeners due to swearing.

If I'm completely honest this is the first audiobook I have listened to but I adore the series and thoroughly enjoyed listening to it walking to work, at the gym, making dinner and so on and so forth. I struggled to get passed the accent of the narrator at first (especially when it came to the swearwords) but I was captivated by the story line from the beginning to the end. This is not just the best audiobook I have come across but also one of the best fantasy series I have read to date.
Olina is my favorite character because her inner strength is incredible. She is courageous, kind and simply bad ass.
I feel as though Sanjay deserves a special mention. Every book needs a Sanjay.
This question is ridiculously hard. I cant come up with anything that would do the book justice.
"Full of adventure!"
I loved every second of this story! Fantasy of Frost is a story that is an adventurous tale about a young woman destined to be a ruler. Falling in love with the wrong man and taken to a different world has changed everything she has ever known. I love the amount of emotion that Kelly St. Clair is able to draw out of her characters, which makes it easier to connect to the story. I have read the books prior to listening to the audiobook and both are amazing! The narrator does a brilliant job with this book.
Olina is a young naive girl that contradicts herself with how wise and open minded she is. Amanda Dolan did such a great job capturing the spirit and strength of Olina's voice. This is one of my favorite books and it was so much fun listening to it. I didn't loose focus at all, Amanda kept me engaged with her lively voice. Just as Kelly keeps you invested in the story from the very first line. I would recommend this to anyone who loves fantasy. Great book. Great narration. Can't wait to hear more.
Fantasy of Frost is easily the best book I have listened too in years!
The young lady overcoming her societies introvert tendencies to seek love.
very good clear voice and reading.
the entire book is a stand out to me.
wonderful book and great author!
I was hoping for a bigger explanation to the veil but overall loved the book and Amazon needs to get the next two books in ASAP!
"I couldn't stop listening!"
I loved the way the author, Kelly St. Clare, had so much to tell. Everytime I had, as a listener of this audiobook, the urge to know something. And when that something was revealed; there was something else I was yearning to find out.The story constantly kept me on the edge of my seat!
In the beginning, I had a little difficulty with the narration, perhaps as this was my first audiobook (in English, my mother tongue is Dutch). But after a couple of chapters, I really got comfortable with the narrator and her calm voice was a good start of a relaxing end of my day, with the audiobook.
Living a veiled life can have many disadvantages. But when you're the main charachter in this book; iyou learn how to turn those disadvantages into advantages and mystery.
I can't wait to read/listen to the second part of this sequel!
*Audio copy of book was received in exchange for an honest review*
First I need to say, I'm not usually a fan of YA stories, or fantasy but after reading the blurb, I was intrigued. Boy, am I glad I listened to my instincts here. I really enjoyed the book. The characters are genuine and not as far fetched as they could have been.
Lena is a girl, well a princess, the tatuma of her world who is put in a bind when she falls for the prince of the other realm. That is offset by tragedy and then, as if life doesn't suck enough, she's taken prisoner.
That status doesn't take long to change though. She grows on the people around her, even becomes friends with them, all while keeping up a vigilant watch out for a killer, and trying to keep herself out of harms way.
The poor girl has been burdened with the task of staying hidden and not knowing exactly who she is for so long that once the time comes to unveil herself, she all but falls apart. That resolves into her need for answers. A trail is set upon to find answers which will take her from the comforts she has become accustomed to.... and lead her into a path of unknown consequences.
"I wouldn't let my teen listen/read this book"
I am thinking of getting the second book in this series because I would like to see where the story goes.
Not sure I would because of the use of rather bad swear words that was not needed.
When Olina removes the veil and sees her face for the first time.
Not on the big screen but might on Amazon or Netflix.
Parents beware. If you don't allow your children to use bad language or try and limit their exposure to it, don't let them near this book. The use of the f work happens too many times to be overlooked. Before anyone jumps on me about what I am saying please remember that this is how the book hit me and therefore MY opinion of the book.
