Overview

When Cinderella's glass slipper is stolen, Queen Felicia sends her faithful steward Terrance to the real world to retrieve his love and witch-in-training, Bianca Frost. The power of the glass slipper, when paired with its mate, and in the wrong hands, could ruin the peace of Everafter. Bianca must gather every bit of magic she has learned in the past few weeks to find the slipper and protect her new love. Together, Bianca, Ming, Prince Ferdinand, and Terrance venture deep into the heart of Everafter to seek clues as to who has stolen the slipper and why. Along the way, they uncover what happened to the Seven Dwarves after Snow White married the prince, but also learn the awful risk of tampering with black magic and the high price that must be paid for magic, even when used for good. Bianca and Terrance's relationship is put to the test. Through the pain of suffering and loss, Bianca must determine if following her gallant boyfriend into his faraway world is in fact her heart's desire.

I read and really enjoyed book 1 in this series last year and hoped to get more from the characters so I was pleased when Liz contacted me again for a review, I of course said yes! We are back with Bianca Frost - quick recap - Bianca's mum runs the museum of fairytale artifacts, most come for fun not believing any of it is real but all of the items actually really belonged to a fairy tale character from history- Red Riding Hoods Cloak, Snow White's Poison Apple etc. Bianca now has a Link with 'Everafter' the world of Fairytales and after solving one catastrophe there she is home and hoping for some quiet time. In walks Terrence - her potential boyfriend who lives in Everafter, he has come to take Bianca back there, one of Cinderella's glass slippers has been stolen and the magic in them can be very powerful and dangerous in the wrong hands. Although it has been quite a while since I read book 1, everything came back very quickly, in fact the story stayed with me very well and I could still picture the museum etc before I even started reading again. It was like going back to a place you love but haven't been able to visit for a while, most things are familiar but there are also some new exciting differences to pull you in further again. You just know you're going to have a great time there. I liked the plot layout and the story behind the slippers. Bianca and Terrence make a great duo and really carry the story. I liked the interlude of humour from Prince Ferninand too, gave the book a real funny element as he is such a likeable character. We meet some new characters in Everafter - some of the 7 Dwarves, Bluebell a fairy with attitude and the Frog Queen. The world really takes shape and feels like you are stepping through the pages and journeying with them. The imagery in the writing carries you in and builds everything up. I found myself desperate to pick up the story again to know what happens next. It took me a little bit longer to read as it was an ebook which always slows me down, but it couldn't quell my enjoyment! Looking forward to more from Bianca and friends. Hope Liz has more up her sleeve for this series.

Reviewed by Rosie Malezer for Readers' Favorite Glass Frost is the second book in the Frost Series by Liz DeJesus. Bianca Frost is next in line to run the Museum for Magical and Rare Artefacts, which has been run by her family for many generations. When Terrance, the grandson of Magnus (aka the Big Bad Wolf), arrives at the museum from Everafter with a message that the Queen needs her help, Bianca heeds the call. Her parents reluctantly allow Bianca to go, on the condition that her best friend, Ming, is with her at all times. On discovering that one of Cinderella’s glass slippers has been stolen, Bianca and her loyal friends set out to discover who the thief is and to stop them from stealing the other, which is housed at her family’s museum. If the two slippers are united, it will cause much devastation. The chase takes them through many fairy tale landmarks such as an enchanted forest full of fairies as well as the home of the seven dwarves, before leading them through the portal to Earth and back again to Everafter. Bianca suffers injury, loss, and great sorrow, but she is determined to do everything she can to protect those she loves in both worlds, while trying to prevent the two glass slippers from being reunited. Liz DeJesus tells the most enchanting of all magical tales, encompassing some of the greatest fairy tales and blending them with dark magic, mystery and twisted realities which Bianca never knew existed until just a few months earlier. The characters in Glass Frost are so much fun and bring back many happy childhood memories. Facing your fear of the unknown and pushing yourself that extra mile to save those you love, regardless of the dangers faced, is a strong message in this second title. I look forward to reading the third book in the Frost Series to see what happens next. I recommend Glass Frost to young and old, who enjoy the magic of fairy tales with a twist, blended with humor, adventure, suspense, real life social issues, loss and sacrifice.

Glass Frost  By Liz DeJesus Where do I start? One thing I loved about this book was how it pretty much picked up right where the first one left off and not years later. This book is just as good as book one.  Bianca gets to meet the seven dwarfs and has to get Cinderella’s glass slipper back. Can she get the slipper before something happens to her or someone she cares about? You will have to read to find out. You will love this book. I loved it. 5 stars  A+

This book picks up right where the first book left off. Again, very well written and considerate of the characters thoughts/actions. I can't wait for the 3rd book to be finished! If you're looking for a great fairy tale mystery, this is your book.

I Received An ARC Of This Story In Exchange For My Honest Reveiw! This book picks up a little after First Frost left off. Terrance has shown up in Bianca's world because Queen Felicia ( Prince Ferdinand's mom) would like to speak to her. Doesn't take long after Bianca and Ming return to Everafter for the Queen to tell Bianca that Cinderella's glass slipper has been stolen and that she needs to find it and return it. Liz brings the readers back to Everafter for the second installment of the series. While a good portion of the action takes place in Everafter there is some that takes place in the human world. This is some good action that you don't want to miss out on either. We are introduced to a new place in Everafter and I love it. I would love nothing more than to build a little cottage right in the middle and kick out all trespassers. They call on old acquaintenances for help and they even make some new friends along the way. Lets not forget the evil witch because we know that a story isn't a fairy tale unless it has a evil witch. This series continues to grow and improve with each new book. I can't wait to see what happens next with the characters and series. Thanks Liz for an interesting and enjoyable read.

I was excited to see where DeJesus would take this story after the first book, and she didn’t disappoint one bit. This book was just as fun and exciting. Once again, DeJesus delivers a unique and fresh twist to the classic fairytales I grew up loving and I was fascinated by her imaginative take on things. This story brings us even more magical characters and the new adventure Bianca finds herself on takes her on an exciting journey through Everafter. Even though I wasn’t very fond of some of the characters in First Frost, they all quickly found a place in my heart and my affection for them grew throughout this story. Bianca matured and developed into a wonderful, strong MC. She was a serious force to be reckoned with. This story upped the ante on everything. The romance heated up (but stayed within the PG13 rating), there was even more action and adventure, with the collision of two worlds and even more evil witches, the magic was more exciting too. I loved every minute of it.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 unicorns - I really liked it!! ~ Action-packed fairy tale with lots of twists!! **Received the ebook as part GHB tour for an honest review. Okay, I definitely like this cover better than book #1, and it definitely makes you think Snow White.   I enjoyed this story and all the adventure, but it was still something I could put down at night to sleep even though I think I like this book more than book #1.  I really love the creativity it takes to make a whole new story from old fairy tales and that this is a good series. I love Bianca because she is courageous and adventurous, but she is also very kind and caring.  Bianca is like a magnet for trouble which makes for an exciting read.  Along with Bianca, you still have all your other favorites Rose, Ming, David, Terrance, and Prince Ferdinand.  There are some new villains, and you meet the families in Everafter.   Again, I hope this book comes out in paperback because I want to add it to my classroom library.  I think the kids are really into fairy tale twists. If you enjoyed the first book, you definitely don’t want to miss out on this adventure.  I can’t wait to see what Liz cooks up next for everyone.

Glass Frost lets us meet some new characters and new villains. We're placed in some new situations as well. I enjoyed meeting Snow White's Dwarves the most. I love how the First Frost Series not only brings fairy tale characters that we've all grown up with to life, but it brings them into the present in delightful ways. Liz DeJesus has put together this world so well that it's easy to imagine it's existence, and I want it to be real. I'm anxious for more! Glass Frost by Liz DeJesus was provided to me by the author for an honest review. The opinions are my own.

You know the feeling when you have your favorite flavor of ice cream sundae and it has a lot of chocolate syrup on top of it, and then you add lots and lots of sprinkles, marshmallows and rice crispies to it and then you add some more chocolate syrup again? Well, that’s what I felt when I read Glass Frost. It’s like all the things that I love was put into one. This series right here is the reason why I love fairytales again and it made me love it even more. Glass Frost by Liz DeJesus is the crème of the crop when it comes to fairytale mash-ups. A week after what happened in First Frost, Terrance came to the mortal world to tell Bianca that the Queen Felicia of EverAfter wanted to speak to her about an important matter. So along with her side-kick/ best friend, Ming and her knight in shining armor, Terrance, Bianca went to EverAfter again to meet the Queen. There she was presented with a mission; to retrieve one of Cinderella’s glass slippers and prevent the other one from being stolen. You see, Cinderella’s glass slippers have the ability to grant its wearer’s desire. That’s why it’s pretty lethal if it went into the wrong hands. And that's the start of another awesome adventure that will test not only Bianca's ability in witchcraft but also her desicion-making skills and her willingness to sacrifice and to do everything in her power to protect the people cared about. It's evident that Bianca's character here has matured not only in her craft but also as a teenager. She still commits mistakes and dive into trouble head first but she's more responsible now, she thinks about her actions and how it would affect the people around her. She also proved to me once again how brave and selfless she was when she led the bad guys away from the mortal world and into EverAfter to protect her mother. The rest of the gang, Terrance, Ming and Prince Ferdinand, also got matured especially Prince Ferdinand who showed a great deal of his leadership skills and justness while in their journey. But Ming was not so sure if she can handle the stress of long distance relationship with Prince Ferdinand. Ming was also scared to death of the idea of becoming the next queen of EverAfter especially after she experienced the torture of wearing a corset. Meanwhile, Terrance and Bianca's relationship is still going strong and after what they had been through in this mission, it's going to be much much stronger. My favorite part of the story was when Bianca and the others, met three of the seven dwarves. It was a bittersweet meeting. It's twenty different kinds of awesome, if I may use Ming's signature dialogue. But it was also kind of sad because they all waited for Snow White to comeback but she never did because she was captured by Lenore. And when they saw Bianca they thought she was Snow because of their resemblance but they were disappointed when they realized the truth. The way that they talk about the memories that they had with Snow White, makes me so emotional. I can clearly hear the longing in their voices while they reminisce the past and it's really breaking my heart. I'm just comforted with the fact that they will soon see her and that they are eager for that day to finally come. Overall, this is a really great read! If you love everything about fairytale, you will definitely enjoy this one. And if you think your fairytale belief has died a long time ago, then this book will revive that. I'll certify this as a MUST-READ and highly recommended to everyone.

Glass Frost is a fantastic follow-up to First Frost! I liked the first book well enough, but I loved this one. There is more depth to the characters, lots more action, and some very hilarious scenes! I honestly cannot wait for the next book in this amazing series. I've always loved fairy-tale retellings, but a series set in a fairy-tale world? That's just awesome! I loved reading this book even more because I recently watched the first two seasons of Once Upon a Time. If you're a fan of that show, this is definitely for you. Bianca is finally safe at home with both her mother and her father, whom she rescued from Everafter, the fantasy land. But Terrance, her boyfriend (who lives in Everafter) shows up at her house, and things start to get interesting. The queen needs a favour from Bianca, but no one knows what it is. Bianca travels to Everafter with Terrence and Ming, her best friend, and find themselves in the middle of another adventure with Prince Ferdinand. There's loads more magic in this book, and we learn more about all of the characters as well as about Everafter. It's really cool to see how much Bianca has grown from First Frost. She's accepted the fact that she's an incredibly powerful witch, and the descendant of Snow White. She still jumps head-first into trouble, despite the warnings she's given. But I love her bravery and stubbornness. She's very adventurous, but also very wise. She's rational, and I like that she makes good decisions. Bianca is one of those YA characters that you can't help liking and relating with. She's not annoying, she's not whiny, and she's not stupid. And there are very few YA heroines I can say that about! Bianca is really smart, and her quick thinking usually saves her from some terrible fate. I loved how prominent Terrance is in this book! We didn't see that much of him in First Frost, but in this one, his relationship with Bianca really grew. He's sweet and funny, and just so freaking lovable. And of course, really skilled too. I love how much he cares for Bianca - it's evident every single time he interacts with her. Bianca can always feel safe with him, because that's the kind of vibes he gives out. He's definitely not your typical YA guy, but I love him. Ming has always been an awesome best friend to Bianca, and I wish there was more of her in Glass Frost. In First Frost, she seemed to be really into the adventure, but I guess one was enough for her, because she's really reluctant to go back to Everafter. Despite the fact that Prince Ferdinand is there. He and Ming had really hit it off in First Frost, and there's definitely a lot more between them in this book. But Ming kept running away from it! She doesn't think it can last, and I didn't like the fact that she was hurting Ferdinand by doing so. He's amazing, and he deserves someone who will always be with him. Speaking of Ferdinand. He's absolutely hilarious! Nothing like a prince at all. He's like a teddy bear, he really is. Of course, he's tall and strong and all princely-looking, but he's very immature. But he has a really kind heart. Everyone can see what a good king he would be. I love his bromance with Terrance - it's epic! They're best friends, always together, and always watching out for each other. Oh, and there's a part where Bianca brings these two back to the mortal world with her, and I loved all the scenes where normal technology awed them so much! “And I will be able to have a conversation with you from anywhere in the world?” Terrance asked.“That’s right,” David replied.“Incredible. And it will sound clear, as if we were standing next to each other?”“Correct.”“Amazing.” Prince Ferdinand sat on the floor playing with the DVD player. He laughed every time he pushed the open/close button. Terrance sat beside him, doing a poor job at stopping him. “Why is the little square man under water?” he asked, and a tiny spray of food flew out of his mouth, behavior not fitting of a prince.“Because he lives under the sea,” Bianca replied as she sat on the couch.“In the pineapple?”“Yep.”“Fascinating,” he replied and turned his attention back to the TV.Okay, those may have been too many quotes to share, but come on, they're absolutely hilarious! Especially in context. As you can obviously tell, the last one is about Spongebob Squarepants. Anyway, the quotes just basically reiterate my point about how awesome these two guys are. I know I've been focusing almost fully on characters in this review, but I can't help it. They're what makes this book so awesome! But the plot is also definitely amazing. There's a hell of a lot of danger in this one. People almost die, some actually do, and there's fighting and suspense everywhere. There are some very intense moments, and some lighter ones. I love the balance in this book. Everything is paced really well, and on the whole it's great. Liz, I'm eagerly awaiting the third book! *Thank you to Liz DeJesus for providing me with an ARC for review*
