Wow. I really loved Frostfire! This is definetely ZM's best book so far. Reasons why:

The writing is beautiful, as are the setting and characters.
Frost, is at first scared and feeble, uncontrollable strength coming to her only when she is possessed by a dark battle-raged wolf. She joins the hill guard, falls in love and confronts her past and becomes the confident heroic badass with an axe she was destined to be. She is a brilliant faulted coloured lady who develops beautifully throughout the novel. The action scenes are great, as are the relationships. When I read the blurb, I thought: Oh no. Another respectable author has stooped to the dreaded love triangle. Groan. Sigh. I read the book anyway because I really like the author and God am I glad. It's predictable but oh so nicely done. There is Luca, the golden boy, who she immediatly falls for and then there is the dark tortured Arian who hates her on sight but slowly shows her his soft side and understands and cares for her. It all sounds quite familiar BUT. What makes this one good is that all the characters are honest and have real reasons and feeling behind their love. And the relationship between the two boys is also very interesting. I really came to care for the characters and the story and I liked that there were different nationalities and colours living together in this fantasy world and a few ladies who like ladies included. Did I mention that Frost can really hold her own in fight and that every character was wonderfully imperfect (even Luca, just).

Great read! :)
