Fire in Frost by Alicia Rades
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Got an email on a day when it was available for free, so I snatched it up. When it was updated (as Amazon does that) on March 15, 2017 I just finished the Trilogy "Penryn and the End of Days" (Susan Ee)End of Days and felt like reading something lighter so I started this on the day it was updated.
Strange combination, parts of the story (no sex, very little romance), seem for a younger audience, but the main problem is very real and mature: abuse of a spouse, physically but not too many details. The MC is well written, younger, and just grows into her powers, fumbles with the problem and how to help. Very well written how she feels along till the solution, also with working together with people she knows and trusts, even if she is not sure if all believe in her power - which she just learned of herself and does not know to the full extend what she is capable of.
Recommended, but only 3 stars as I think parts could have been more mature, maybe the next books will grow into it (just bought the next 3 books, as they where not too expensive).
Though I must admit I might have given 4 stars (rounded up from 3.5), just as easily.
