Embers in a Dark Frost is the first in a new 2-part series by Kelly Keaton. This is not a Young Adult book. I would put it in the New Adult Fantasy genre. It follows a young woman named Deira, who is a half blood. She is shunned because of the human blood that runs in her veins. She leads a sad, lonely life of a servant and doesn't realize how wonderful she really is. The world building is wonderful. The world of Innis Falls is slowly dying, and the author does a good job of capturing that. The writing and descriptions are done beautifully. The hero in the story is Balen, the King of Sydhr. He meets Deira and knows without a doubt that she is the red haired halfling who is described in the prophecy. She is supposed to journey with Balen to find the light that will save their world. Deira is reluctant to go on the dangerous task because she doesn't believe that she has any powers. I liked seeing how she became a more confident person throughout the book. She is very easy to relate to and a very likable character. The character of Balen is swoonworthy. He is a tough, fearless, handsome warrior. He is also the first person to treat Deira with the respect she deserves. He doesn't condemn her for not being like everyone else. Their relationship builds pretty slowly. They have great chemistry together. There are a few steamy scenes, but it's not too descriptive or erotic. There is a cliffhanger ending that will leave you very frustrated. Fortunately there is a second book that should be coming sometime in 2013. I think that anyone who is a fan of paranormal romance would really enjoy this book.

Good story- it had a nice well developed plot. The length of the book was around 800 pages which was an added bonus for me. Cant wait for the next book in the series.
