Set in modern-day Canada, Frostfire ushers us into the magical world of the Kanin – one of the five breeds of trolls. (Yes, this story is about trolls.) Our story is told by Bryn Aven, a strong-willed, 19-year-old tracker aspiring to become one of the Hogdragen (an elite guard that protects the Kanin kingdom).  Bryn has been sent on a mission to collect the person who is next in line to the Kanin throne, a changeling. While trying to get the changeling, Bryn has a run-in with the last person she ever thought to see – the exiled Konstantin Black.

When the Skojare Queen goes missing, King Evert sends Bryn and Ridley (her attractive boss) to Storvatten to locate the her and investigate the wealth of jewels there. Things in Storvatten seem enshrouded in mystery, and Bryn and Ridley are prevented from investigating the situation too closely. When Konstantin shows up, yet again, it appears that he is more involved than ever. Bryn discovers that he is working for the most wanted man of all the Kanin.


This book kept my attention, with an interesting perspective on trolls, a nice amount of love interest, and plenty of action. I would recommend this series to fans of YA Fantasy.
