Frost Series by Liz DeJesus Reviews Only Tour- Mel's review of 'First Frost' & Giveaway

First Frost
The Frost Series Book # 1
By-Liz DeJesus
Publication Date- June 22, 2012
Published By- Musa Publishing

Fairytales aren’t real…yeah…that’s exactly what Bianca thought. She was wrong. 

For generations, the Frost family has run the Museum of Magical and Rare Artifacts, handing down guardianship from mother to daughter, always keeping their secrets to “family only.” 

Gathered within museum’s walls is a collection dedicated to the Grimm fairy tales and to the rare items the family has acquired: Cinderella’s glass slipper, Snow White’s poisoned apple, the evil queen’s magic mirror, Sleeping Beauty’s enchanted spinning wheel… 

Seventeen-year-old Bianca Frost wants none of it, dreaming instead of a career in art or photography or…well, anything except working in the family’s museum. She knows the items in the glass display cases are fakes because, of course, magic doesn’t really exist.
She’s about to find out how wrong she is.


First Frost is the first book in the Frost Series by Liz DeJesus.  What little girl hasn't sat around wondering if the fairy tales we all know and love were true stories at one time? I know I did. This book seemed to be something I'd really enjoy. I like it when I'm right. 

The narrative is in the third person, but we see things from the main character, Bianca, and her nemesis, Lenore's points of view for the most part.  Getting inside their heads made this a very fun read for me.  The characters were all unique and easy to relate to.

While the story is packed with action, I wasn't surprised by much that happened.  It was still an exciting and enjoyable read, though. Action, humor and terror all combine with the strong bonds of family and friendship to make this a must read. I can't wait for the sequel.
