Review for Frozen by J.E. Taylor - 4 out of 5
SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -
Will the ice queen keep her royal station, or will the fight for the throne end in a bloody battle?
Elsa must marry before midnight of her twenty-fifth year or lose her kingdom. The only problem is that no man in Bryggen can be near her without getting frostbite.
Kyle Bryggen, the founder of the kingdom Elsa rules, has been in hibernation for two hundred years, and now he is awake and wants his kingdom back.
They could be a match carved in ice, except every time they meet, they want to kill each other.
When a diabolical senator manipulates the law to his own purpose, Elsa must choose between the lesser of two nightmares.
One will lead to the ruin of her kingdom, and the other will lead to her death.
MY REVIEW -
This one is pretty dark, and it's not really a re-imagining of Frozen; it's more of a continuation. This one focuses on Elsa's life, and Anna is just on the sidelines. This takes place years after Anna has found her love, and Elsa is still Queen, but is being forced to marry or lose the throne. What's the point of being Queen if you don't have control over your own life? There's lots of despicable people in Elsa's kingdom. Elsa meets Kyle, and they have a fierce passion between them, but I missed the love that I like in my romances. That element is missing, they do have an intense connection, but I wanted more depth of feeling between the two. They are pretty brutal with each other. I liked that there is a shifter element added to the story, and I liked Elsa's ice power. Overall, the story is interesting and I like it. There were times that I wondered why Elsa didn't use her power during certain situations though, and she pretty much needed a male to save her, so that was a bit disappointing. Entertaining, darkish romance, and I look forward to more!
