Overview

Grace Lynn Stevenson is an eighteen year old girl who recently moved with her wealthy, but busy parents to a new city. She's popular, pretty and rich - what more could a girl want? But deep down, she's sad, lonely and plagued by nightmares. When she meets Sebastian Caldwood at her new private school, she's inexplicably drawn to him and his strange tattoos. Sebastian always gets what he wants - he simply has to wish it; but he's fighting his own inner demons, and struggling to remember a past that eludes him. When he remembers that he is much older than he looks, he realizes that he's seen many people live and die, including Grace.

Once Sebastian realizes his true nature and finds what he has been searching for the past hundreds of years, he also realizes that it is now up to him to protect Grace from the dangers that have plagued them throughout eternity.

    Fantastic Read

    Grace lives a life of privilege. More often than not, that life isn't all it's cracked up to be. Her family has done well to uphold their image. Grace is popular, beautiful, talented, and so much more. She's got a popular boyfriend who comes from a good family as well. Little does Grace know, something is missing. And when she meets Sebastian, a boy no one is sure of, she starts to see life in a different perspective.

    I wasn't sure what to think of Grace when the story first opens. Was she going to be one of those snobby popular girls I never cared for? When Sebastian approaches her during her free period while she is working on her art, she isn't the nicest to him. Though as the book goes on, Grace changes her mind and feelings about Sebastian. The more time she spends with him, the more Grace realizes that the life isn't all about keeping up an image, being perfect, and being around those with wealth and power. Though family and friends disapprove of her new friend, Grace doesn't care.

    Sebastian was a mystery to me. He intrigued me, kept me wondering who he was and where he came from. He's different, and not afraid to embrace that. There are those at his school who don't treat him well, but he's not the kind of guy who cares about that. He's sweet and protective of Grace, and his character kept me drawn into the story. He shows Grace new things, and as time went by I realized just how much I liked her after all.

    Written in Grace's point of view, this book has a paranormal element to it, but it took me a bit to figure out what that was. There are characters I loved and there were some I wasn't too thrilled with. The emotion from Grace and Sebastian had me flying through the pages, holding on for a touching and beautiful ride. Amber Frost is haunting, charming, and amazing. Though it is young adult, people of all ages have an opportunity to enjoy a wonderfully written story that will leave you breathless.

    If you enjoy reading in the paranormal genre, and if you like romance geared towards the young adult age, then don't hesitate to grab a copy of Amber Frost. Let this magical story steal your heart.

    Review from Blkosiner's Book Blog

    I am able to connect with main character before I even know her name! I can sympathize with the whirling thoughts and feeling like something is missing. As well as trying to live up to parent's expectations, which I am sure is a pretty universal thing.

    And then I start to hate her a bit. The awesome looks, seemingly perfect boyfriend, artistic, family has money. But then I am snapped back to the fact that she feels empty, hollow- I have felt that before and no matter who you are or what you have, that is a horrible sensation.

    The intrigue starts right away when her thoughts and drawing is interrupted by a mysterious guy she has never noticed before but is supposedly in her class. He has an accent and he is beautiful so I am sold pretty much right away and want to find out more. Compared to him, when seemingly perfect boyfriend enters the picture I want to smack him J

    Him and the other people of the popular crowd are stereotypical, but well written- jocks, superficial (at least at surface) girls. The way they are in the spotlight makes me really glad that I was never there even though I often wished I were popular in high school and still do sometimes.

    Grace is obsessed with Sebastian- wanting to find out more. Actually looking forward to seeing him and finding herself smiling. I can totally see why. He says heartfelt things, and he also says strange things, that I want to know what is going on. There is obviously something paranormal with the forgotten pieces of his past and the strange events that happen. It is fun to watch unfold, and I was constantly looking for a free moment to read so that I could see what would take place next.

    The romantic suspense and tension is well set up. She writes beautifully and there was one scene I (well, Grace, but you know what I mean) was expecting a kiss and didn't get it. I felt let down- that is a mark of good writing. Suzi's writing not only draws me in, it is lyrical. In this, some words and phrases are repeated close together, but it doesn't distract. My attention was drawn there, but it served to amplify what she was getting across. The plot moves wonderfully, showing me the action, the sweet moments, and the moments of processing.

    I am so frustrated in Chapter 8 but once I finally understand it makes it all the more romantic and selfless. Yeah. I know. Vague and frustrating, but if you read, which I hope you do, you'll understand. I am a fan of how Grace questions things, not just blindly accepting and not caring. Though her decisions are driven by love, they are not solely based on it. She also holds to her morals and I like that she doesn't compromise based on how love and physical intimacy can make you push those lines so easily.

    When the mystery slash paranormal aspect is revealed, I expected something of the like, but that did not lessen the impact or effect. I still had many questions about how it works. I can't say much else past this without giving spoilers, but it all leads up to an amazing conclusion. Pain love, past lives, danger, and sacrifice for those you love!

    I really enjoyed this one, and definitely recommend for everyone to pick up a copy.

    You won't put this one down!

    Amber Frost, a novel by Suzi Davis, is a very exciting teen love story with a unique paranormal twist. The novel centers on Grace Lynn Stevenson - an eighteen year old who on the surface seems to be living the dream. She comes from a very wealthy family with high social standards; she is beautiful, smart, popular and, of course, has the handsome, popular boyfriend on her arm. However, Grace is not happy - far from it. She feels trapped in a world where everything is fake - even herself - that is, until she meets the very bizarre Sebastian Caldwell. The story that unfolds between Grace and Sebastian is one of friendship, adventure, self discovery, and love. As Grace struggles to break free from the confines of her upper class life, Sebastian struggles to remember who he is..what they find out is what neither of them had expected.. This is a wonderfully written book with truly unforgettable characters; a young adult novel that will keep much older audiences captivated as well. Once the book is opened, you will find it difficult to put down. This is a fantastic read and highly recommended! The ending even leaves the door wide open for a continuation that I will anxiously await!! I received this book as a review copy for Book Divas, but Suzi Davis now has a permanent spot on my "authors to read" list!!

    A Tale to Remember!

    Amber Frost - Suzi Davis Ebook. Dec 2010 Book Divas
    Young Adult; Paranormal

    5*****

    What a great tale!! "Amber Frost" by Suzi Davis, published in Dec, 2010, is a young reader novel, though I as a rather 'mature' adult quite enjoyed this novel.

    Very well written, "Amber Frost" is a tale of a complicated young love - with a fabulous paranormal twist. The characters are awesome and the story's continuous buildup came to a great end - while leaving room for book 2 - I hope. I for one will be watching for it!

    I received this ebook for free to review from Book Divas. I am a member of Book Divas, Librarything, Goodreads, Black Velvet Seductions and the Penguin book club.
