It's a tricky situation when you're really looking forward to reading a book and it ends up being a disappointment. I normally post my reviews fairly quickly after reading, but I put off writing this one for some time because I was so conflicted over my feelings.

The thing is, I really enjoyed Stork, the first book in this series, for several reasons: the strikingly original paranormal concept of a girl who is destined to be part of a mystical order of women, the fresh and funny voice, the cute r...more
Erin (Bookish in a Box)
As with all second novels, I approached it with a little bit of caution and, I'll admit, procrastination, but as soon as I started reading, the happy feeling that Stork gave me while I was reading it enveloped me. Frost isn't a happy, sunshiny, summertime book, but something about it makes it a joy to read, like I know that I'm in capable hands and that Wendy Delsol is going to give me an adventure I won't forget.

As with Stork, we're following Katla as she navigates her duties as a Stork, a stud...more

First Impression:
My husband's family is from Iceland, so I am very familar with many of the Norse and Icelandic folktale and customs. It was great to actually see something completely different in the YA genre. Plus, I ADORED Stork. When I saw that the sequel was coming out, I knew I had to read it.

While Reading:
Frost picks up a little bit after Stork finished. Kat is getting use to her Stork abilities. Her mom and Stanley are excited about the baby. And her and Jack are going strong as a couple...more

This book was a bit more predictable than the first, but part of that is due to the fact that I was familiar with the folk story/fairy tale that was a main plot feature for this book. If I hadn't been familiar with The Snow Queen (and if the cover jacket hadn't given so much away!), I probably would have been surprised more when reading this book. So, my advice to you is don't read the cover jacket—you'll enjoy the book more.

Again, my favorite parts were the Nordic folk stories. I was unfamiliar...more

I loved Stork and the magical element and rich Norse and Jack Frost mythologies that Wendy brought to life in her story. She does the same thing with Frost, but adds another great spin on a fabulous mythology, The Snow Queen. This added a whole new depth to the story and series. I liked how she introduced it into the series.

I'm a sucker for well written story that takes an existing mythology and makes it their own, and Wendy has a talent for doing that. She brings the right amount of magic into...more

After gobbling up STORK, the first novel in this series, I picked up FROST. I had looked at reviews on Goodreads and noticed that some readers had wanted more about the Stork Society and in general had other expectations. THROW AWAY expectations. I loved this continuation of Wendy Delsol's Icelandic folktale, bringing to life THE SNOW QUEEN in such a creative and enthralling manner. This novel focuses a lot on Jack, but fans of Jack and his special powers will love it. The integration of the fol...more

Frost takes on a wild ride from America Mid-West, to Iceland to Greenland with a good dose of Norse Mythology thrown in to spice things up. In Stork, Katla comes to understand that she is part of an ancient society of Storks, women who can place souls with to-be-mothers. She also falls for Jack, as in Jack Frost, a fellow teen in high school who also is coming to terms with his magical abilities, in this case it's changing the weather. Stork sets everything up and leaves Frost to be purely adven...more
Gabrielle Carolina
Frost is another fun, fairytale-esque trip through legends with Katla LeBlanc.

Stork fans will adore this sequel and the new complications to Kat's already wacky life as a soul-placing being of myth.

Kat is, as always, immensely fun to live vicariously through; even if you have to don a pair of extreme snow boots you'll enjoy every minute of this wild ride, to Iceland, and beyond...

Long Review TK.
Stefani
Superficial and cheesy, but I do love the Icelandish twist on everything. There are a ton of pop culture references (my favorite was along the lines of "as awkward as Diversity Day at Dunder Mifflin"), so this will be dated soon. Bonus: the girl rescues the boy! Hand to girls who want romance and adventure.
Rachel
Book 2 in the Stork series, I was really looking forward to reading it.

Cons: Swearing. I was really wanting that Jack and Kat saving the world together kind of deal but no there was that whole thing with Brigid. (So hopefully in the next book?) The whole mixture of legends, storys, etc. It was a bit confusing. The "prophecy". Seriously?

Pros: Jack, the way he was near the beginning and end. Penny, she's such a good friend. Kat, she is a relatable character, mostly. Julia. And Leira, the baby.

Not as much love as the first one, but still SO MUCH LOVE.

Previously Published on my blog: Welcome to Larissa's Bookish Life


The Good:

I still LOVE the world Wendy has created and I love that we never know what she has in store around the corner. Katla’s voice as a protagonist is amazing as well and you can’t help but be completely enthralled by her plea.

The Bad:

I really loved Jack in Stork, but I don’t know, I feel that maybe we need another strong male lead to create some tension in the story? I enjoy plot lines where the main couple’s love is tested b...more

Review Posted on Reading Lark 10/18/11: http://readinglark.blogspot.com/2011/...

I absolutely loved Stork so I was super excited to get my hands on this sequel. Spending more time with Kat and Jack was high on my priority list. I didn't really go into this expecting anything other than more myths, engaging writing, and fun characters. Frost certainly delivered on this front and was an excellent sequel. I didn't instantly love it like I did with Stork, but once everything was said and done I loved...more
Kelli (I'd So Rather Be Reading)
Do books ever make you hungry for a certain food or thirsty for a certain beverage? Or do they ever make you wish you were in a different season of the year? Frost made me long for winter's chill (we are currently experiencing daily temperatures of 95-103 degrees here in Southeast Texas) and it made me thirsty for hot cocoa. Wendy Delsol's imagery and description were so detailed, so intricate, that I found myself wishing for the trappings of wintertime.

In book 2 of this trilogy, Kat is settling into Minnesota and is happier than ever now that Jack is officially her man. With her first soul delivered to an expectant mother, she is getting used to being a Stork and enjoying the special powers her cold-resistant boyfriend brings to the table. However, when Brigid Fonnkona, an environmental scientist (so she claims), arrives in Norse Falls and lures Jack away from Kat by inviting him to go to Greenland as a research assistant, Kat’s world turns up...more

In Stork, Katla moves from California to Minnesota and discovers she's part of a mystical union of women (aka Storks) with special soul-gathering and -dispersing powers. She also meets and falls in love with Jack, a descendent of Jack Frost, gifted with his own weather-controlling powers. Now that's a power couple. As Frost begins, Katla wishes for a white Christmas and Jack overdoes it with a snow storm so powerful it attracts the attention of world-renowned (and drop-dead gorgeous) climatologi...more
Shannon (aka Readergirl)
Let me start out by saying that I really loved Stork, so I was really excited about reading the sequel. Although I did enjoy the book, all in all, I felt that it didn't quite live up to my expectations. Delsol's writing was just as good as I remember, and the characters just as likeable, but at the same time, I felt like there were so many missed opportunities in this book to further develop them, and their individual storylines.

I always have a hard time with storylines where some chic comes alo...more

I know I'm in the minority, but I actually liked this one better than the first.

Truly Bookish
Stork was such a cool book. Katla, the main character, was a spunky girl who was struggling in a fish out of water situation after moving from stylish California to cold Minnesota. The book was a really fun read and I loved the Norse mythology, not something that find a lot of in YA. Additionally, the romance between Kat and Jack is so sweet!

Frost is an equally fun read. Portions of the story - the main storyline featuring Jack, Kat and Brigid - is based on Hans Christian Anderson’s The Snow Que...more
Katryna
What a great sequel! Though not as good as the first, it was still pretty darn awesome.

I'll start off with why I did not give this book 5 stars. The idea of the 'Snow Queen' just seemed kind of cheesy to me. I know, I adored the first book about Storks, but I can't handle this one? Well besides that I found a lot of the events predictable.One other thing is that I felt like for this story it was just a little too long, I didn't find that there were many boring points, but it could have been shor...more

Katla LeBlanc, a member of a secret society of women called Storks, finds herself drifting apart from her boyfriend Jack, a descendent of Jack Frost, when a beautiful young climate researcher appears and recruits Jack for a research trip to Greenland. Once in Greenland, Brigid and Jack go missing and it’s up to Katla to rescue him.
There are many different elements at play in this sequel; ancient Norse legends, Hans Christian Anderson inspired elements of fairy tales, Icelandic myths, and superna...more
Kimberly
So I did enjoy this book but not as much as stork. I was really hoping for a lot more "meat" to Katla's new society and powers which is not what you get in this sequel. This book focuses mainly on her romance and their problems and jacks power and brings in a whole new slew of folklore. If youv'e read it, you can see parallel lines of "the snow queen" in frost. I enjoyed the book but it didn't do for me what a sequel should. It's not really a stand alone book but its not really quite as connecte...more

Wendy Delsol’s FROST, is the sequel to her YA debut STORK.

Just as Katla LeBlanc is getting used to use her gifts, she’s suddenly left with a lot of responsibilities. With Hudla in coma, new people coming fur-lined Brigid who seems to take interest in Jack and mysterious Ofelia who seem to be appearing strangely on her family’s needy times, her suspicions increase, trusting people and her own instincts prove difficult. Decisions to make, choices to choose, involving her loved ones, Jack, her f

I really am enjoying this series. It is different than your average werewolf/vampire/ghost story. To see my review on Stork, go HERE.

So, the saga continues, but this time, it is Kat’s turn to save Jack.

I really love Kat. She is quirky and very funny. Jack is awesome too, but this book was full of heartache to see what Kat has to go through to save the man she loves.

There are more characters introduced to us in this book. We meet some more of Kat’s family when she takes a trip to Iceland with her...more
Courtney (Fuzzy.Coffee.Books)
Was it everything I'd hoped for in a sequel?

What I liked: 1) Once again, I adored Katla. I think she's a fantastic heroine and manages to be heroic in style! Katla and I would totally be friends in real life. And the development from book one to book two was really great. Katla's not a static character that doesn't learn and grow. She's alive and real, and really gave me someone to relate to. She's also sort of hilarious. 2) In Stork, I wanted to learn more about Jack, to have more of a reason t...more

wow its been awhile since i did a review because of school but i will be doing them again. so recently i read frost and here are my thoughts:
Pros:
-Kat is still quite likeable if not more in the second book
-her relationship was sweet in the very beginning of the book
-different myths/tales are explored further and we get to see a bigger picture of the story behind the storks
-Kat gets to go on an adventure
-a lot of references to the snow queen story(very obvious ones)
now for the bad news,

After the drama of finding out that she’s a Stork, a member of an ancient and mystical order of women, and that her boyfriend, Jack, is a descendent of the Winter People able to control the weather, Katla Leblanc is delighted when all signs point to a busy and peaceful Christmas. That is, until the snowstorm Jack summons as a gift to Katla turns into the storm of the century, attracting Brigid, a gorgeous scientist who, in turn, attracts Jack. Between the school play, a bedridden, pregnant mothe...more

I’m not quite sure how I feel about Frost. On the one hand, I enjoyed Katla’s growth as a character and the epic journey that occurred, but on the other hand, the story moved much too fast. At times, I felt as if some pages were missing or I somehow missed them because we’d seemingly jumped from one thing to another completely.

So first, the characters. Kat seemed to grow quite a bit since Stork. That’s not to say she didn’t show growth before, but this time it was just a little different. I can’...more

Katla LeBlanc settles into life in Minnesota, after discovering she’s a Stork (a mystical group called to deliver souls). Her boyfriend Jack understands unusual powers as he’s a descendant of Jack Frost and able to control the weather. When the mysterious Brigid shows up to research climate change, most everyone is taken in. Not Kat. As Jack is swept into Brigid’s research effort in Greenland, Katla becomes increasingly suspicious – or is it just jealousy? When Katla learns that Jack has disappe...more

The Scoop:
Katla Leblanc is a stork--she delivers unborn souls to their rightful womb. Her boyfriend Jack Snjosson is, in the most general of terms, Jack Frost. But we learned all that in the first book of the series, Stork. Katla is still a stork (and second in command) and still head over heels for Jack. Katla and Jack are spending their first Christmas together and it isn't as white as Katla would have expected in Minnesota. As his present to her Jack creates a light snowfall that they take a...more
