How do you save a girl from a deadly fate when you don't know how she's going to die?....

Wow, I think this story is by far my favorite one yet! Crystal was yet again, an amazing character. She is getting better with her abilities as the stories progress. I love how the author added some new twists to this story that I sure not expecting when I started reading. The author added a special twist to Sage and her mental pro

It was nice to come back to Crystal and her friends and seeing the culmination of everything that she went through in the first 2 books. It felt like a fitting ending to the trilogy (?) but who knows, there might be more books in the future.

While it was frustrating at times, I wish that there were more Crystal and Robin moments. They were my favorite in Desire in Frost, and I really wanted to see more of them, rather than basically be told about them. I guess the actual saving Sages' life was mo

Crystal has truly come into her own with her abilities. She has continued to help them grow and she is still determined to use them to help others.

When a ghost comes to her asking her to save Sage she knows she'll help her no matter what the question is how do you help someone you don't even know?

I love how mature she is and how invested she becomes in helping others when they cross her path.

I once again enjoyed going along the journey with her as she strove to figure out who Sage was and how sh

I just got done reading the Crystal Frost series, including a sequel short story, by the fantastic author @aliciarades . This was one of those recommended to me by Amazon, and it looked interesting. What an understatement! Rades may be one of the best new (to me) YA authors out there. Her character development and plot lines were great, and her new take on some familiar paranormal stories (psychics) really had me hooked. I finished this entire series in about 1 1/2 days; I could not stop reading ...more

Inspired by Forst was not what I expected. I had already read the other two books in the series and loved them. This book, however, had twists that surprised even me. This is my favorite book in the series so far. I love how far Crystal has come and how she has grown with her powers. She has been tasked with saving someone but has no idea how to save them or how they will die. Worse, she has to balance all this while her being there for her mother and helping with the wedding. Even better, Cryst ...more

Crystal has been getting better and better at using her powers and has almost mastered the little things. When a ghost shows up while trying on dresses for her mothers wedding, Crystal has to help her. The ghost (Melissa) asks Crystal to save a girl names Sage and she only has a month to do it in Crystal has also developed new powers to help her on her quests. There was some added twists in this story that were surprising to me. this has to be my favorite

An inspiring read!

How do you save a girl from a deadly fate when you don’t know how she’s going to die?

I think this is my favourite from what I have read so far - it deals with such an important issue and I hope everybody can take that message with them that the book conveys.

Lovely writing - I love how it flows so naturally that you get so engrossed in it, you forget everyone and anything.

Full of abilities, secrets, visions, psychics, ghosts, trust, friends, romance and family.

Perfect for reade

Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! I love how the mystery seems impossible to figure out in the beginning, but the author delicately added clues to help Crystal Frost and the reader figure it out by the end. I loved how the reader gets so much more in depth with Crystal's life. I also thought the ending was terrific! I agree with some of the other reviews; this had been the best Crystal Frost book yet!

Inspired by Frost

This series gets better with each installment. The characters are a lot more flushed out and dealing with the changes that occur within the story. I like how Crystal is changing and maturing at the same time as her abilities are growing. This is a solid, enjoyable read. I would recommend the series to fans of paranormal mysteries or paranormals in general.

Love It!

Absolutely amazing read. It's great to see Crystal embrace her ever changing gifts. It's also amazing to see how well her support system helps her. Can't wait to see if there are any more adventures that they will go through.

“She’ll take her last breath the next time you wear that dress.”

Months of passive paranormal activity leads Crystal to believe that her mother’s wedding to Teddy will go without incident. Crystal is on high alert however, after a ghost named Melissa, turns up in her fitting room while she’s picking out her maid of honour dress, with an ominous message warning her about someone’s impending death.

Upon investigation, Crystal comes to the conclusion that the girl in danger is Sage, a classmate of R

Again we began with Crystal Frost. She's in the bridle shop with her mom. She is trying on bridesmaids dresses. Crystal tries on several until one catches her eye. A beautiful purple dress, trying it on was very exciting, Until she notices a ghost. A young girl named Melissa. The ghost immediately tells her to save the girl Named Sage. Melissa says to Crystal "she'll take her last breath the next time you wear the dress" .Crystal is now confused as how to find Sage. She gave no real clues, or de ...more

This was a great continuation to the series and my favorite one so far! Crystal definitely has her hands full in this book between her new psychic abilities, helping with her mom’s wedding, and finding and preventing the death of a stranger named Sage. I love Crystal’s personality and how much she wants to help anyone in need. This book was less predictable and had more twists and turns which I really enjoyed. Although I love that Alicia mainly focuses on the mystery, I wish there was a little m ...more
So much pleasure to immerse yourself in the history of Crystal Frost, this series is a real favorite.

There is Crystal Frost who has adapted well to the supernatural except that months of paranormal use make her think that her mother's marriage would go smoothly. When suddenly a ghost named Melissa appeared during the dress tests as a bridesmaid. She's going to do everything she can to save Melissa's daughter Sage. Except it's hard to save someone when you don't know how they're going to die.

I started book one two days ago, finished it in 2 hours and searched frantically for the remaining ones. Two days passed before I finally found out I could just buy them on the kindle store. Sooo, I did. 4 hours ago, I bought the entire series and have already finished book 2 and 3. Tomorrow I intend to finish book four. And hopefully there will be more to come or more similar. (Maybe a into the future of one of crystals kids?) either way it goes. It is so well written and I was in a trance.

Another entertaining book in the frost Series. It is well paced and keeps the journey going with Crystal, her friends, and family. This book takes on the subject matter of abuse. As in all the books in this series, the characters are well developed and the pace is perfect. Crystal discovers new aspects to her ability and continues to develop her gifts. If you liked the first two books, you will like this one too. It is a very entertaining ya paranormal adventure.

No real review, as most of what I wrote for the second book also applies here. Felt like reading some fluffy PNR and so I did. Romance, but not sex. MC comes across as whiney and most times unsure, not my type of heroine.

Three stars, barely, not really recommended, for younger readers and fans.

Okay, so, first of all, this should have had multiple trigger warnings for people! Seriously!
Secondly, Crystal annoyed me every second of this book.
Thirdly, Emma never gets enough story time and is taken completely for granted.
I did not like this book at all. I am disappointed in it actually. I will be reading the last book in this series, and I hope it is better than this one.

I voluntarily read and reviewed a copy of Inspired by Frost from the author. Inspired by Frost is the third book in the Crystal Frost series and just wow this book was just so good. I just love this series so much it just has a way of drawing you in and I am so looking forward to reading the next book.

I have just finished reading this series of 4 books. 4 books in less than 4 days, need I say more?

A well written tale of a young, teenage girl who on reaching puberty, realises she has certain powers. These 4 books tell the story of her trials and tribulations.

Not going to say any more about these books, read them for yourself but make sure you read them in order.

Wow. This book was so much better than the last one. I totally loved the character developments. When I came to know the reason behind the title of this book in the last page, I was overwhelmed! Raised has done a really good job in crafting this literary (psychic) piece.

Thank you

This review worked. I’ve loved every second of these books. They make me feel that there are possibilities. Yes, I know they are fiction but they are the type that causes a reaction from me, be it sad or happy or a combination. These books give it all.
