Cover time! It's so pretty!!! Omigawsh it's so perfect. It's mysterious but it exudes some clues about the story and that's the color that I think Emma's hair is and it's just perfect. The colors, everything. I love the font especially.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
This book was one of those that I finished in like a day - it was seriously, crazy good. I had no problems getting right into the story. I wish that books 2 and 3 were about Emma and Cormac. I ship them so hard. I really want Cormac for myself, but, well.
I have to say that I like all the magical things that happened and all the powders that they used. I really like when books have original magical systems, it reminded me of Harry Potter in a way. The Goblin Market was like Diagon Alley in my head for some reason.
Either way I loved the book and while I still think that there are way too many loose ends for Emma's story to be over (Book 2 is in Gretchen's POV, so I'm guessing 3 is going to be in Penelope's,) I'm looking forward to it. October can't get here fast enough.
Theodora is way off her rocker, and the ending with her still confuses me quite a bit, but still.
So much happened in these 496 pages and I still wish there were 500 more. Miss Harvey's writing is clear, descriptive and it lures you right into the story. I'm so wrapped up in the plot line that it all blends together, almost like it happened to me. I think this is called a book hangover. Yes, that's where I am right now.
All I can say is that this gets 5 triquetras and I'd give it 10 if I could. You need to pick this up.

4 and a half stars
The premise and the world building here were great, and I really loved the story that developed. I don't like the way Emma and Cormac treat each other; they sometimes make each other weaker rather than really loving each other. Its more of a puppy love situation. I really loved Theodoras storyline. I hated the descriptor that "their tongues touched." And the author used the phrase more than once!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Magical, thrilling, romantic, and full of surprises, A Breath of Frost was a brilliant YA read. I absolutely loved this book! Everything about it was amazing. I've read books by this author before and absolutely loved them. This book definitely doesn't disappoint.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Emma was a lovely heroine. After living a fairly normal life, her world was absolutely flipped upside down when her magic was released. But, she stayed strong and held her own, even as she was faced with things she never even knew existed. I really liked her. I thought she was a fantastic character.
Cormac was Emma's love interest and he was a total sweetie. Though he lived within the society of witches, he didn't have any magical power of his own. But, don't let that fool you. He held his own in a world of magic and proved that he was strong on his own right. He was wonderful.
The romance was on the light side, with the story being more focused on the witch issues at hand, but it still played a significant role. Emma and Cormac were so sweet together. They were both strong and they made one hell of a team. I thought they were lovely together.
The other characters were also great. Gretchen and Penelope (the cousins) were both wonderful. They were strong and clever and I really liked them both.
The mystery of why Emma's powers were locked up was brilliantly done. I loved how the story of her mother's past and why she did what she did was done. Her story was brilliant and heartbreaking on its own and it definitely held a few surprises. I thought that was wonderfully done.
The plot was fast paced. I was hooked the entire way through. There were tons of thrills and the mystery had me on the edge of my seat. I never suspected who was behind the trouble with the Greymalkin Sister and why this person was doing it. It totally blew me away when I found out. I really enjoyed the story and the ending wrapped up the issue of the Sisters, while leaving things open for the next book. I can't wait to see what's coming up next in this brilliant series.
A Breath of Frost was a fantastic YA historical/paranormal romance. It had magic, romance, mystery, surprises, and thrills. I loved every bit of it! Lovers of YA, magic, or romance, this is a book you have to read.
