Overview

The invitation to join the secretive Guadel should have been the fulfillment of dreams Va'del didn't even realize he had. When his sponsors are killed in an ambush a short time later, he instead finds his probationary status revoked, and becomes a pawn between various factions inside the Guadel ruling body.

Jain's never known any life but that of a Guadel in training. She'd thought herself reconciled to the idea of a loveless marriage for the good of her people, but meeting Va'del changes everything. Their growing attraction flies against hundreds of years of precedent, but as wide-spread attacks threaten their world, the Guadel have no choice but to use even Jain and Va'del in their fight for survival.

Publisher's Note: Frozen Prospects is a YA Epic Fantasy book, and is the first novel in the Guadel Chronicles Series which is written so that it can be safely enjoyed by teens and adults alike. Frozen Prospects is followed by Thawed Fortunes.

The Guadel Chronicles: All the scope of an epic fantasy combined with the action of a sword and sorcery book!

Meet the Author

Dean started reading seriously in the second grade due to a competition and has spent most of the subsequent three decades lost in other people's worlds. After reading several local libraries more or less dry of sci-fi and fantasy, he started spending more time wandering around worlds of his own creation to avoid the boredom of the 'real' world. Things worsened, or improved depending on your point of view, when he first started experimenting with writing while finishing up his accounting degree. These days Dean has a wonderful wife and daughter to keep him rather more grounded, but the idea of bringing others along with him as he meets interesting new people in universes nobody else has ever seen tends to drag him back to his computer on a fairly regular basis.

I was given this book for free from the author to read and leave an honest review. I later purchased the book because I enjoy his writing. This is a wonderful YA fantasy. This is the first in the series. What a good, well-written story. Va'del is an orphan and an outcast that is beaten and bullied by others in the community. Jain lives in a world of ice and snow in the caves. The Guadel are looking for apprentices to learn magic and how to enter minds. Dean Murray has come up with such a different and interesting story. The beginning is a little slower paced, but all development of the story to come, which is exciting and you won't want to put it down, so stick with it. This is another well-written story that will let your mind easily see the characters and become immersed and part of this book.

Interesting story concept. The names hampered the reading flow until used to them. Plan to read the second book or this one will leave you unsatisfied. This is not a stand alone.

A romantic thriller about an orphaned teenager, his angst and adventure. Epic ended too soon and unresolved leaving the reader wanting to pick up the next volume.
