On the whole, I enjoyed White as Frost. The story is a fast read with an easy, flowing plot. The setting is beautiful and I craved more of the details!! I would have loved to continue reading about the details of the places and history, which are honestly usually parts of books that are least important to me. Hopefully we’ll get to explore more of that!
The thing that makes this book a solid pretty good for me instead of an OMG is that I didn’t connect much with the characters. Rose and Neeve and Thorne are all nice characters. But they don’t go past nice for me. It could be that I just wanted to go a little deeper into everyone, like I wanted more detail from the rest of the world. It could be that they’re younger and maybe I’m past the point of being able to connect with younger characters (how depressing!). Hopefully we’ll get to know everyone better and more meaningfully in the next book. I DID think Rose was very well written, in the sense that she wasn’t instant wunderkid and she also made some very typically teenager decisions. I really appreciated that!! It’s a rare thing for main characters to actually act their age.
I think this is a solid first book in a series that was light and fun. It would be a good read for a range of ages, especially people who like magic and fairy tales and adventure. I look forward to the next in the series!
