“It kind of reminds me of Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark but the Young Adult version whereas the writing and school setting reminds me of Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy.”
~ Under the Covers

After reading the first book of the spin-off series, I was curious enough to know where the story started so I decided to go back and read this series. I’ve been a fan of Jennifer Estep’s writing for a long time now and I have to say that this series definitely falls in line with the rest of her excellent quality.

Firstly, I was most intrigued about the heroine, Gwen in this series. She’s a whole lot different than Rory and I think that’s a good thing. My favorite thing about Gwen’s character is the fact that she thinks a lot like a normal teenager. These days, I feel like Young Adult books are becoming more Adult in nature. The themes tend to be more complex and are all about great responsibility that you can easily lose sight of the true essence of a Young Adult novel. Gwen’s narration and the trials and tribulations that she goes through in this novel are something a normal teenager can relate to and for me, that’s what makes me love this series so much. It captures the Young Adult essence, but still has the quality of a excellently written novel.

The other thing that I think sets this series apart from others is the variety of paranormal species that are present here. Gwen is a Gypsy, but there are so many other species here that it will cater to everyone. It also gives the author so much room to play. It kind of reminds me of Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark but the Young Adult version whereas the writing and school setting reminds me of Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy. If you’re a fan of both authors, then you’re going to enjoy this one.

TOUCH OF FROST definitely has me intrigued and I will definitely be looking to read more of the books in this series.
