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
LilyCat (Agent of SHIELD)

Although I liked the series progression and how the details mirrored the Snow Queen, I didn't like a few things about the story. First of all, how Katla contacts the little boy who got killed in the snowstorm wasn't really related to anything, (view spoiler) I'm glad the YA genre has finally created a book that follows a fairytale not many people have heard of, not counting Frozen.

Brigid was a great
Book Review originally published here:

The story is inspired by the Snow Queen, one of my all-time favorite fairytales. I liked the first book, “Spork” a lot, because it had tons of original elements and although paranormal, it gave a refreshing twist to the concept. The sequel was a bit more predictable, but the Nordic folk stories were very intriguing, like the frost giants. Katla’s new skills are a little over the top though, and with the whole new rang

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

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

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

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

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

Umm.... Currently, I am 80% dissapointed and 20% speechless.
If Goodreads allowed a lower rating than a 1-star than I wouldn't hesitate to rate it that way.

After reading Stork I was actually very excited to continue the series. But let me tell you, Frost was such a dissapointment.

The begining was OK... But then one thing led to another and then, I was so close to adding this book to my dnf list because I did not want to continue this story but a part of me was curious.

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.

1st read: Hating the cliffhanger (the mess with the sister), mainly because "Flock" isn't out until October. Can't wait to see how THAT mess is handled.

Delsol did a good job of incorporating the Snow Queen story into the book, though now I"m wondering who was actually in charge of the ice & snow world in Norse legends. :)
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.

I had a hard time getting into this book. It's start seemed excessively drama-y and overly dramatic, and the tragic-all-consuming-love story playing out seemed a little over the top for me. I would have given this book two stars (especially since there was very little of the "storking" occurring, for which this series is named - why make that a focus if it always seems to be an afterthought in the plot?), except about half way through it turned into a pretty awesome (and unexpected) fairy tale r ...more

I am pleased to say that I enjoyed this volume in the series as much as I did the first. The author brings us a whole new group of paranormal creatures, myths and aspects in this book and continues in being a truly original in a world of mostly similar paranormal type books.

I enjoyed learning a bit more of the Icelandic myths and stories and the way the author brought those myths to life seamlessly into the story she'd already begun in Stork. I found myself enchanted even more by our main charac

Fun, fun, fun! Love how she incorporated several fairy tales and legends into this one! Love Kat, love Jack, love all the characters old and new! Can't wait to read #3!
Very good. Many people think that this is a horrible sequel, but I beg to differ. It really portrayed Katla very well. The descriptions of Brigid were stunning. Also, am I the only one who noticed that Brigid rhymes with Frigid? You'll just have to read the book to find out why this makes sense...

Although it was more focused toward Jack and not Katla or Leira, it still was interesting. I also didn't like how it made the dad look like a nice man although he, well, cheated on Katla's mom. In truth
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.

I found myself getting very angry as I read this book. Even now my hands are shaking. Let me just say that if I were Katla I would have smacked Jack so hard he would've forgotten his own name. Then I would have probably attacked Brigid to an inch of her life. I mean who talks about another woman in front of your girlfriend and then doesn't even think it's a big deal?
ooh I still want to smack him so hard. Stupid boys. Jack does not know how lucky he is to have Katla instead of me for a girlfriend
Carrie Slager
t took me a little bit to warm up to Stork because of Katla but by the end I liked the story enough that I was willing to read the second book. I had bought the entire trilogy on a whim anyway so why not? It certainly sounded a little more action-packed than the first book. In a way it was but in a way it was also slightly disappointing.

My whole impression of Katla in Frost was essentially ‘meh’. She’s changed a little bit from the first book in the sense that she’s no longer as stuck up and is

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

Review Posted on Reading Lark 10/18/11:

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

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

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

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

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
