"Her character-driven books, which feature trolls, hobgoblins and fairy tale elements and keep the pages turning, have generated an excitement not felt in the industry since Stephanie Meyer or perhaps even J K Rowling "

Frostfire is the first book in the spin-off series from Amanda Hocking's Trylle trilogy.
The focus is on the Kanin troll tribe and Bryn Aven, an outcast half-blood who as a tracker is determined to rise in rank and one day work for the Kings Guard, and protect the Royal Family.
When a wanted Kanin fugitive Konstantin Black who has a history with Bryn, is found to be attempting to kidnap high ranking changelings before the trackers can retrieve them, Bryn is determined to capture him once and for all.
With a possible forbidden romance between Bryn and her boss Ridley on the horizon, there is much to love in this new series.
With appearances of characters from the Trylle series spread throughout the story, there is something here for old fans as well as new ones, and while I do recommend reading the Trylle trilogy first you could read Frostbite without having read the previous books.
I love Amanda's writing style and I can't wait for the next book, while this didn't exactly end on a cliff-hanger it seemed to end suddenly and left me anxiously needing book two.
Drawn in from the first page, this was an exciting, action packed story with intriguing characters and an extremely enjoyable plot.
The second novel in the Kanin trilogy is Ice Kissed, from the international bestseller Amanda Hocking.
Bryn Aven is still struggling with her burgeoning relationship with Ridley. She's also set on completing her mission to find the missing Skojare Queen. But when they do finally discover what happened, Bryn finds out that things are much more complicated than she'd originally thought.
And as she gets closer to the truth, Bryn is framed for the murder of the Kanin King himself. She ends up on the run, as home holds too few answers and no solutions.
"Oh my gosh!! This was better than the first one!! I could put it down! I was grounded from reading it, for a few days, becasue I was reading instead of doing my chores...and it was all worth it! AMAZING!! I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK!!!!" Journie
