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)-- on hiatus :(

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

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. :)

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

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
Shannon (aka The Tale Temptress)
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

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
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

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.

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.

While I only skimmed the second half of book 1, I skimmed nearly all of this one. I was just curious about the plot and how things would end up. Admittedly I’m curious about something for the last book, but I can hold off on that for a while. Got other books checked out from the library that I need to read.

I thoroughly enjoyed the first book, so I was very disappointed to find out this one was no good. The plot was not great, and the story veered from what is its strongest asset--the Stork Society. The protagonist's sense of humor, which I loved in the first book, felt too fabricated in this one. Probably won't pick up the third book.
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

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

In the second installment of Stork, Frost will...definitely surprise you. In Stork, I was left confused at what was happening in the beginning, what Katla really had to do with her Stork-ish duties. In here I was hoping for maybe a little more of a explanation but I never got that because you're immediately plunged into a new adventure. Wait, scratch that. You aren't plunged, you're dragged into a new adventure between Katla, Jack, and a mysterious impromptu appearance from a stranger. The begin ...more

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
Because of Stork's unique nature, I had very high expectations for its sequel Frost. It exceeded those expectations exponentially, wrapping up all I loved about the first novel and improving them to provide an exciting new adventure for Katla and her friends. From the setting to the story to the mythology, Frost is a winner!

Katla is back and is stronger than ever in this new installment. After the events of the last novel, she's more confident in herself, trusting her own instincts even without

Frost is the much awaited sequel to Stork. The novel is loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen. The main focus of attention in this novel is Jack, Katla's boyfriend. This may be slightly disappointing to readers who were expecting further development of Katla. Jack has a fierce desire to understand and control his own magical ability. Jack and Katla are slowly beginning to have a deeper relationship when Brigid arrives on the scene. Brigid comes to Minnesota due to a gift from ...more

This seriously can’t be the end to this series/world/whatever. Seriously. I enjoyed it way too much. With “Frost”, Delsol proves that “Stork” wasn’t just a one-off success, but a sustainable (ironic term here, but let’s continue anyway) world that could probably produce quite a few books to come.

So we pick up with Kat and Jack and the rest of the crazy “Stork” world, and things aren’t exactly going to plan after a rather tragic accident scares our happy couple into a dark spot where before every

Fans of Wendy Delsol's first book, Stork (Candlewick Press, 2010) will want to read this sequel, but they may be disappointed. The writing seems forced and there are multiple plot lines which detract from what captivated readers of Stork: the Nordic mythology and romance between Katla and Jack. Katla is descended from an ancient order of mystical women, and Jack, who controls the weather, endeavors to impress

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

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.
