Review: A Hint of Frost (Araneae Nation #1) by Hailey Edwards

on Oct 10, 2012
Genre: Fantasy / Romance

Review: A Hint of Frost was amazing!

The story revolves around a young woman named Lourdes, who is forced to become the leader of her people, the Areneidae, when her parents are murdered. When the traitor is identified Lourdes must follow her new mate, Rhys, to avenge her parents. 

Lourdes was a lovely main character to follow. It was incredible to see the sacrifices she made for her people. She was very brave and yet you could understand how overwhelmed she was. I really enjoyed the relationship between Lourdes and Rhys. Th fall in love slower than most novels but it was better because you could tell how they made their unexpected situation work. 

The fantasy was quite unlike most books. Mainly the Areneidae Clan, who are able to spin silken thread from their fingertips. The world that Hailey Edwards has created is unique and intriguing! 

One small note, at times I wasn't sure where the characters were, space wise, sometimes I wasn't sure if Lourdes was close to Rhys or far away, that sort of thing. Perhaps a little more description would help the reader picture that a little easier. :)

Overall, I loved A Hint of Frost and will definitely be reading it again!
