4/4.5 stars Upon starting Amber Frost, I was thinking that it was beginning to be a little predictable. Wrong. The storyline is fresh and new to me and It was refreshing to read a book with a different sense of paranormal if you will.

Grace Lynn Stevenson has recently moved with her wealthy and busy parents to Victoria. Her father has been promoted to a partner at a law firm and with that status comes money and greed. She was enrolled into the prestigious Craigflower Academy.

Grace is a standout

I am able to connect with main character before I even know her name! I can sympathize with the whirling thoughts and feeling like something is missing. As well as trying to live up to parent’s expectations, which I am sure is a pretty universal thing.

And then I start to hate her a bit. The awesome looks, seemingly perfect boyfriend, artistic, family has money. But then I am snapped back to the fact that she feels empty, hollow- I have felt that before and no matter who you are or what you hav

Thank goodness: a YA paranormal set in the charismatic Pacific Northwest that DOESN'T have vampires or werewolves in it! I was drawn right into this book, and especially had an iron grip on my e-reader during the last few chapters (you know, the part where you're going, "No! You have to get back together! Come on!!"). At the start, okay, sure, I had a glimmer of skepticism about how Grace, our main character, could be so down on her life when by her own description she's beautiful, smart, rich, ...more

Wow! It is not often that a book causes me to laugh out loud and later weep until I can't see the words. OMG! Where is book two?

It is set in Vancouver, BC. That is part of its charm. But it begins with a young lady that you probably won't like. A richy B****. You'll wonder why you keep reading. What slowly dawns on you is that girl is only responding as she was taught, as had been impressed on her since birth: Be a good girl, do as you're told, stay a quiet mute. Hmmm, where have we females hea

Thank you, Ms. Davis, for a story that kept me guessing and wanting more. My suppositions about Sebastian were so off the mark - thank you for not making it predictable. I enjoyed Gracelynn's transformation and can't wait to see what happens to her charming mother. I immediately thought of my favorite Disney villianess, Maleficent, when she appeared. The characters were developed and well-thought, though I had to laugh at Clarke - I knew so many of those in high school; nothing changes, does it? ...more

Love love LOVE this book! I was not a fan of paranormal books until reading Amber Frost and now I think I might be hooked. Everyone needs to read this one, whether you like the genre or not. It is rated as young adult but I believe it will appeal to many age groups.

I didn't want Amber Frost to end...thankfully it is part of a series so the story will continue! I found myself putting off errands and chores so I could keep reading. After going to bed I would tell my husband that I couldn't sleep a

Young Adult; Paranormal

5*****

What a great tale!! “Amber Frost” by Suzi Davis, published in Dec, 2010, is a young reader novel, though I as a rather ‘mature’ adult quite enjoyed this novel.

Very well written, “Amber Frost” is a tale of a complicated young love - with a fabulous paranormal twist. The characters are awesome and the story’s continuous buildup came to a great end - while leaving room for book 2 - I hope. I for one will be watching for

Awes-mazing. This kind of mystical magic with an ethereal and esoteric atmosphere is exactly my kind of book. I admit that I just can't help myself. It's just such great fun to lose yourself in the pages of a good book. Cute mysterious guy, check. Cool MC, check. Magic, check. Intensity heightened by the agony of being a teenager, check. Danger, check. I'm sold. This book was so totally in harmony with my perpetual inner teenager that I am going to read the entire series. Susie Davis is definite

I picked this book for the obvious reason, it had my name in the title. But seriously, this book was engrossing and I could barely put it down for a second! I stayed up much too late last night finishing it, even though I was supposed to be writing. (Shh, don't tell my husband) If you haven't read it, do. You won't be disappointed! Can't wait for the sequel!

The story is about Grace who is from a well to do family. Her parents has high expectations of her, the most popular guy in school is her boyfriend and she strives to be the perfect daughter to parents that only care about appearances. But its all a façade as Grace is not happy with her life. Then one day she meets the very mysterious Sebastian Caldwell. Sebastian opens her eyes--she’s happy with him and can finally break free of all the expectations from everyone around her. But Sebastian has t ...more

Sigh!!!! This is going to be hard for me! Just to start I want to state I won this book. I have a hard time giving a rough review to someone who was generous enough to give me the book for free. That being said I feel the author would want me to be honest, so here goes.

I did not really like this book:( It took me so long to finish it because it was excessive in everything. From it's description of Grace's beauty to the dew on the grass. I kept falling asleep while reading it. I even wanted to ju

I am always admiring and envious of those who are able to write a story containing so many intriguing, congruent details that I wonder how one ever came up with it, nevertheless kept track of it all. I felt the same way with this book, especially as the true beginning is yet untold (which we don’t find out until the end), however, all the particulars fall into place perfectly as if the story was already fully written and clear and we are simply missing a huge part of it.

I loved the concept and w

I'm more then half way through and just can't bring myself to finish it. Maybe one day but definitely not now. The main character is just incredibly annoying and completely shallow, despite the authors attempt to show otherwise. It takes forever for the story to actually take off, and everyone just seems winey. She ends up saying they get along because they're both good people but at the same time we constantly see her turn the other cheek when one of her friends is being rude or mean to someone ...more

What did I think? Amber Frost by Suzi Davis has written a young adult magical romance like no other. For me the first little bit was slow and I wondered if I'd get in to it. But when Grace Lynn Stevenson meets Sebastian things begin to change. There is magic, chemistry, mystery and more. Lots of twists Suzi Davis does a great job of keeping you on your toes or reading.

Grace Lynn is in the art studio drawing these crazy images and wondering what is wrong with herself. Grace Lynn is quite the lea

Amber Frost, a novel by Suzi Davis, is a very exciting teen love story with a unique paranormal twist. The novel centers on Grace Lynn Stevenson – an eighteen year old who on the surface seems to be living the dream. She comes from a very wealthy family with high social standards; she is beautiful, smart, popular and, of course, has the handsome, popular boyfriend on her arm. However, Grace is not happy – far from it. She feels trapped in a world where everything is fake – even herself – that is ...more

I'm really trying to make it through this book. I think the author has an interesting idea but so far it has been poorly executed. This entire story consists of the main character sounding like a complete idiot. Here is some of her dialogue: I'm so beautiful, and rich, and everyone loves me and wants to be me; I have the perfect popular boyfriend, and everyone is jealous of my life! Seriously, then it switches to: My perfect boyfriend wasn't so great, but we'll still be friends while I throw awa ...more

Interesting new twist on the paranormal teen romance genre. Combine memory loss and immortality with desire based magic and past lives. Shake it up with present day over-privileged teen angst and fleeting memories of past lives and this looks like a fun new series
The BookWhisperer
Suzi Amber creates a very magical world of love and sacrifice. While a slow start the novel picks up in intensity and intrigue. The main characters are charismatic and attractive. Grace being the picture perfect beautiful young girl; surprising carries a heavy load of doubt and darkness that will allow readers to relate to her character. Sebastian on the other hand is unique and mysterious that will grab readers with intrigue. Honestly I had a hard time not picturing this character as a young J ...more

Review Posted on Reading Lark 6/14/13: http://readinglark.blogspot.com/2013/...

Amber Frost is the story of Grace Stevenson, a gorgeous and wealthy eighteen year old, who lives in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. I have to admit that part of the appeal of this novel was the setting. Victoria is a gorgeous place and I could totally see magic really lurking in the shadows. Grace has a seemingly perfect life, but being from a well-to-do family has its drawbacks. Her entire life is decided based o

Grace Lynn is perfect in every way. She's gorgeous, rich and is dating the most popular boy in her new school. She's in the "in crowd" and appearances mean everything to her. She never has a hair out of place and no one is ever aware that she could possibly be unhappy or stressed in any way. Unfortunately, she is unhappy and the pressure of being perfect is weighing heavily on her. Her boyfriend is less than attentive and it's clear that she's well on her way to being nothing more than his troph ...more
Megan Lillian
In my opinion, this book was not well-written. The appearance-driven narrative distracted me time and again. The reader is bashed over the head with endless descriptions about our protagonist's beauty, and though it's a primary theme that this character is unhappy in a life that revolves around image and conformity, her own value of people and things seems to be based on image. It seemed to me the author herself (more than the character she has written in Grace) is conflicted between ascribing t ...more

A girl shackled by the expectations of her wealthy parents, an intricately tattooed boy who is as intriguing as he is mysterious and a burning love steeped in ancient Celtic lore.

18-year old Grace Lynn Stevenson has it all. She's wealthy, gorgeous, hangs out with the elite crowd and is dating the school's most popular guy. Every girl's dream, right?

Yet for all that, she's plagued by strange dreams and a desperate and suffocating sense of loneliness that she would like nothing more than to escape

This book was very up and down with me. I would start to really get into it and then I would just get irritated with the story. I felt Grace was kind of happy being unhappy. She seemed to always want what she did not have. She wanted Sebastian but when she got him she started missing her old friends. Like when she had to go sit with them at lunch. Then when she fully accepted the outcome of what it meant to be with him she started to resent him and when he made it right she started complaining a ...more

A YA romance. It is a paranormal but there is no shape shifting or wolves, or vampires, or other typical paranormal characters. The characters are human. The two main characters, Sebastian and Gracelynn are caught up in happiness, wanting happiness, and finding confusion in such happiness. They are lost to each other and found. They are confused as we all were as teens.

There is an air of magic. I don't want to give spoilers, but it was a very interesting take that will draw you in. The reader wa

This was a very good book. Beautiful love story although very PG rated for 2 people who are "old souls" and are both adults. I certainly can appreciate the nobility of wanting Gracelynn to stick to her morals but considering the depths this book showed in their relationship, I would have liked to have seen a much more physical connection. Not that it needs to be tons of sex and cursing, it is just a very squeeky clean book. Not very realistic in this day and age by any means even if they are in ...more

I was given this book by the author for an honest review.

Best part of the book: WOW! What a unique story line?!!!! Gracelynn is from a wealthy family, goes to a very private school and has all the right friends. However, in an art class, she meets Sebastian Caldwood and the story just goes from there. The issue of the story is that Sebastian is special. He has "abilities", its not magic (per se) but he can be very persuasive with people. Gracelynn begins to hang out with Sabastian more. All this
