Enjoyable… Frost Line by Linda Howard #audioreview

Posted September 25, 2017 by Berls in Review / 4 Comments

For the most part I enjoyed the story and characters in Frost Line. And it’s nice to pick up a Paranormal Romance that stands on it’s own, instead of being part of a lengthy series!

What worked:

  • A fantastic start to the story! It hooked me immediately. I was so drawn to the the poor boy! I don’t want to spoil what happened, but I think most will be drawn in by what happens to him.
  • I like the very unique world – with the Tarot card “characters” being alive and real, with powers linked to their identities was so unique! I’m not very familiar with Tarot so it could have been complete rubbish or could have made sense as an extension of how their viewed. I have no idea.
  • The narration was pretty decent. I part read, part listened to this book and switching between mediums worked really well for me. Abby Craden was a new-to-me narrator that I wouldn’t mind listening to again.

What didn’t work:

  • Their way of figuring out the identity of “Uncle Bobby” was so haphazard – this was not detective work at all!
  • The very casual, unhurried way they acted felt opposed to the supposed ticking clock. On one hand we’re being constantly told that time is of the essence and, on the other hand, they are meandering around.
  • There is this shield Caine uses to hide Lenna and it only wokrs if they stay close… well, staying close for the shield to work more often felt like a contrived sexiness instead of an authentic reason or sexual attraction at work.

All in all, I found Frost Line enjoyable for it’s uniqueness and fairly compelling story. I’d recommend it as a fun, quick read.

3.5 stars pretty good

    • This was my first with Abby Craden, but won’t be my last. I kinda wonder of the switching back and forth made me not completely love her – but I certainly enjoyed her narration.
