Dark Frost by Jennifer Estep
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Will pause reading this, as the next books are too expensive, bought this together with the short story and the first 2 books cheap enough as an Omnibus, although I already owned the first book (also bought at a bargain price, thanks to Bookbub).
As with the second book, this is more like 3.5 rounded up to 4.
No love-triangle and no insta-love! Sex is mentioned and talked about, but happens mostly off-page, at least they do not ignore teenagers having sex, also there is some gay romance, but in this book only a little, with more probably coming in the later books.
MC grows more mature and sometimes a little more sure. She makes some tough choices for the greater good, she recognizes that not everything can be solved alone by her, that she has to tell others and seek their help. No real help from the goddess, although sometimes she gets some hints from her - but never what she asks for.
A few twists, and I did not guess all, a good sign.
While the action is ok or sometimes even very good, at this point (looking back over the 3 books and 1 shorty) it is not on the gripping level as, say Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy series.
Recommended, and I will read the next books, but not too soon, as I long for more gripping stuff.
