Review Tour: Frost Fire

Today I'm reviewing Frost Fire as part of the review tour hosted by Xpresso Tours.

Frost Fire  (Tortured Elements, #1)
Author: Olivia Rovers
Publication date: November 20th, 2012
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
“Magic is just like love, Allai. It won’t wait for permission before it destroys you.”

Like sand in an hourglass, Allai’s future is dwindling away. She’s spent her entire life fighting the Mages who threaten humanity, and dreams of someday eradicating magic. But all it takes is an anonymous phone call for the truth to spill out: Allai is the one thing she despises most. 

She’s a Mage. 

Though ancient law mandates Allai’s death, she still has one last chance of survival. His name is Drake Rhaize, and he swears he can lead Allai to a sanctuary for Mages. Allai hasn’t seen Drake in years, but she remembers him as the Demon boy who used to hold her close and softly whisper that he’d keep her safe. But Drake has changed since then: He’s now suspected of murder, and has been out-casted for betraying his own kind. 

While Allai doesn’t trust Drake, she has no choice but to put her life in his hands and hope he can get her to safety. Because Allai’s father has hired a pack of Demons to bring her back to him, dead or alive–and Demons never stop the hunt.  



Frost Fire starts with just the right tone. Allai is dealing with nightmares resulting from being attacked by Drake. As Luke tells her she is the one who needs to stop them so starts the story of a girl who has no idea the insane turn her life is about the take. She goes from fighting Mages to protect humans to discovering she is one. She has to decide whether to leave or die and her decision takes her on an odyssey that includes reuniting with a boy she no longer trusts.

This book is a real page turner. If you enjoy the paranormal this book is for you. Olivia builds a rich complex world that you'll want to dive into. But on the flip side for  someone who's been so well trained Allai can be a bit too much a damsel in distress sometimes. Yet this doesn't overshadow Drake or make Allai unlikable. Luke is also another character who cares about Allai even if he does it in his own snarky superior way. Drake the demon boy who's willing to protect her and her nemesis including her own father keeps the excitement level high. Frostfire is an exciting book and if you want to read more go out and buy a copy.
