Carol Beth Anderson ´ The Frost Eater The Magic Eaters Trilogy #1 KINDLE

A lonely princessA flying teenA kidnapped girl who only remembers what happens at nightSeventeen year old Princess Nora is a frost eater who creates magical ice Her royal life is luxurious but stiflingKrey West has a rare magical talent when he eats feathers he can fly His one go This is the beginning of what looks like it will be an epic YA fantasy series from Carol Beth Once I got past some of the cheesy points of The Frost Eater I really enjoyed it You just have to get past the way our characters got their magic and a few other nuances that felt awkward to me But hey there are dragons So get past the initial cheesiness and it pays off Plus you get to look at this gorgeous cover Cheesy at First The opening chapter feels like a scene from Frozen No joke our leading teen girl “eats ice” and can produce pretty snow and ice magic just like Elsa She’s even a princess just to put the icing on the cake But here’s the thing once I got over the way our magic users “fuel up” by eating certain items I loved the magic It’s interesting uniue and yet familiar so it took me very little time to slide into the magical lore I really like that the magic runs out; like your strength and stamina do Which brings me to cheesy issue number 2 These people are Earth humans whom got magic in a way they aren’t sure of and live on a different planet than Earth I’ll leave of the details out for you to discover on your own; but essentially the construct is this is a post apocalyptic human existence with a lot of fantastical magical twists The humanEarth connection felt unnecessary to me The history is mostly irrelevant in book one but maybe it plays a part in the future books? I’d have preferred Anderson just built her own world and didn’t include humans or Earth at all Great Series StartThere is a lot of story to tell here still We get a semi end; but it does lead into a cliffhanger for book two out Sept 2020 A lot is unknown about why certain magic works what caused major past events and a multitude of other things I assume and it feels like Anderson has a plan and will reveal and as the series moves on which is very exciting Characters I was really enamoured with all of our characters; but I held a personal preference for the manly guard that is one of our four teenage main characters We get glimpses of events and thoughts from each POV; but the majority of the story is told via our lead princess There was a moment where I felt like pieces of The Frost Eater were reminiscent of A Curse So Dark and Lonely which I loved; however these are teen characters and there is of a YA basis and feel here Additionally the romance story is far from the main focus Romance Plot The Frost Eater is definitely in the YAteen genre So be prepared for our characters to have multiple love interests first kiss excitement and all that teenage lustlove stuff Thankfully the romances aren’t the core story; they are of a driver for a couple plot points and flow naturally given the close proximity and deadly circumstances our characters find themselves in; never mind a lack of people and friends our princesses age to interact with The actual plot is politically driven and Anderson keeps the reader guessing who is involved throughout None of the instances felt convenient my usual complaint with YA books and everything doesn’t go “as planned” which is important to me in a story; because nothing goes as planned in real life Additionally Anderson ensures to have details another sustainment of life including bathroom needs food water sleep etc No one is seemingly indestructible and injuries don’t heal magically until they are healed with magic lol; and there isn’t really a replacement for sleep This attention to detail makes the story feel real for me and I appreciate that Anderson gives them a place throughout Overall The Frost Eater is a solid YA fantasy choice Especially given it’s an indie book I’m surprised that Anderson hasn’t been picked up by a major publisher as she has a number of series that are well done and deserve to sit on a shelf next to today’s hyped YA fantasy picks Although as I write that I realize she has perhaps kept herself indie to keep some control; but I’m speculating If the introduction and way our characters fuel up their magic was a little less cheesy this could just reach a five star rating As always four stars from me means it’s a solid read and I would recommend it to others with small caveats; in this case our Frozen start has to be pushed through but otherwise I believe most will enjoy this series introduction It’s definitely worth the 0 price on KU And uite affordable in other formats making it well worth trying out to see if it’s for you I’m now counting down the days to September 2020 for book 2 Please note I received an eARC of this book from the author via BookSprout This is an honest and unbiased review

The Frost Eater The Magic Eaters Trilogy #1Al is to find his missing girlfriend Zeisha He thinks someone in power abducted herKrey’s daring feats of magic earn him an invitation to the palace Craving adventure and friendship Nora offers to help him find Zeisha He’s desperate enough to accept though he hates the monarc I received an early copy of this book from the author and am leaving an honest reviewObviously I devoured this book read it in 2 days I found myself sucked in to the post apocalyptic life described in Cellerin I particularly enjoyed the animals that played parts in the story Made it feel like than just “earth re imagined” The characters their flaws their uirks their growth throughout the story their friendshipsrelationshipsbetrayals are what really drew me in and kept me engrossed in the story I found myself as I was reading trying to predict how certain characters would react to things because I felt like I knew themI don’t want to give away anything so please forgive my vagueness but the action in the book is perfectly paced and I’d deem the book appropriate for my 6th grade daughter and plan to stock copies in our grade school library for the 6 8th graders Yet though it would be appropriate for that age level I truly loved it as adultThere are a lot of unanswered uestions and conflicts to be resolved I eagerly await the second installment
