Reviews of Summer of Frost by L.P. Dover

Samantha Clysdale reviewed on Dec. 10, 2013

I received this book in exchange for an honest review from Lovers of Paranormal.

This is far my of all 3 I have so far read. Drake a Summer Fae who can transform into a dragon falls in love with a Winter Fae named Sorcha in his dreams. He and Sorcha must find a way to bring the dark sorcerer down to his knees. There is lots of betrayers in this book. I could not put this book down. I devoured this book for breakfast.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review (Lovers of Paranormal ). All opinions of this book are of my own and not anyone else’s, and they are just that opinions.

So I have spent the last week or so reading and reviewing these books, and have come to the conclusion that they are pretty good. They are starting to flow really nicely and the pace is getting better in that sense. They are not boring books to read at all. I just with that there was more. That there was more I don’t know, depth to them. I want to know MORE about the characters, what make them tick. Why they are the way that they are. Don’t just give me these wonderful characters and not say anything about them.

I want to know MORE about where they are, what are their surroundings like, are there trees and mountains? What about lakes and rivers? What I like about this book specifically is that Sorcha isn’t a lady to take for granted and she will kick ass if need be. I like that she is strong willed and knows what she wants. What I don’t like and it seems to be a theme with these books, is the fact that she keeps putting them in abusive situations.

Am I looking forward to reading the next and last book in the series? Yes I am.
Thank you to L.P Dover and LOP for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book!

Summer of Frost is the 3rd book in the Forever Fae series by L.P. Dover. As before, we get to return to the world of the Fae, and with each new court you enter a world full of beautiful characters that you can’t help but love! You will get to see interaction with all of the characters involved; past, present and future – allowing you to stay in touch with old favorites and keeping you wanting more for the new ones. It picks up with Drake the Dragon Fae and Sorcha from the Winter Court. Sorcha is a strong leading female who is very outspoken and very capable of taking care of herself – which is something I really look for in a book!

I wasn't sure how the author could make the following stories better, and different, but she certainly has!
L.P. Dover has become one of my favorite authors!

I received this book for an honest review from the Lovers of Paranormal Group.

Stars: 5+++

Overall: This book was an incredible adventure & romance. It had fighting, witty one liners, really good sexy loving, dream sharing & even some Dragon flying. Also I loved that in each book that main heroine gets tougher and stronger. Sorcha doesn't need any man to defend and take care of her. I LOVED THAT

If I told you I wasn't excited for this third installment in the Forever Fae series, that would be a complete sham. I have been waiting to see if or when Drake, the eldest Summer fae Prince was going to come to the party and Summer of Frost did not disappoint. We first met these two and felt their pull toward each other in the second book and that's where we pick up this book with another visit to the Winter Ball, this time focusing on Drake and Sorcha, the only princess of the Winter Court. The attraction is instant, but it takes a while for these two to truly come least in the real world. You see, Sorcha is a dream walker and can enter others dreams and interact with them, which she does every night with Drake, but he doesn't know that these passion filled and secret brimming dreams are very real for him and Sorcha. What will happen when he finds out? And of course what plans does the Dark Sorcerer have to get a hold of Sorcha's powers to complete his take over of the Land of Fae? You will find out in Summer of Frost!!

I really love this series and really can't get enough, but I'll be honest Drake has interested me from the very beginning so I was thrilled with him getting his own book. There are so many different reasons to find him fascinating beyond the fact that he is this hunky warrior future King of Summer. He is passionate, fair and HE IS A DRAGON! What? Dragon? Yes, dragon! That was just so awesome to add to the mix of the ever growing number of fae creatures in this world! It's just another in a long list of really cool powers these characters seem to be adding to the mix. This ranks up there with Kalen's wolf pack for me and it was a really fun way to solve the problems that arise for these characters.

Now as much as I could blather on and on about Drake all day long and never stop, Summer of Frost is very much Sorchas' story. She is another kick-ass female to add to all the others and I am thrilled with that. I love that she can beat up the men and handle that spear of hers like nobody else. She is in control of her future and has the stubbornness to keep everything on track. She can be more hardheaded than sometimes Drake wants her to be, but so do the other women in Forever Fae so she fits right in with Calista and Meliantha!

Outside of the two main characters, my favorite part of this story was I felt the change from the first two. The Dark Sorcerer was in this story much less than the first two and that was refreshing. It wasn't the same thing repeated (i.e. betrayal-capture-rescue-happily ever after) We switched it up and made it more about finding a way to kill said Sorcerer instead of just rescuing another princess from his grasp. Plus, I felt Sorcha made the most direct of sacrifices for the good of the whole land in this one and that was something completely different. I'm not saying the other two lacked sacrifice, but this was deliberate and calculated versus being forced upon in a moment of crisis. It can be tough when you start to get this far in a series because you don't want a story to be redundant or not be unique and Summer of Frost excelled in so many ways.

I would have loved to hear more about Sorcha and Drake in this story, but I say that after all of these books. There's just not enough time or pages to write it all down, I'm sure. However, there was one quote that caught my attention that I wanted to know more:

" I love you, Drake. I spent my whole life living in my mother's shadow until you came along. You brought me a love so scorching yet tender that I was bound to be melted by it. "

THAT right there I wanted elaborated on. We never really talked about her relationship with her mother or even her brothers. What makes Sorcha so tough and stubborn? What would make her say something like that? I would have loved to hear a story that made her hide her harp playing abilities and why she is so hell bent on being able to take care of herself and fight the men.

I can not wait to read the conclusion to the Forever Fae series and I will be so sad at the same time. I have really developed a love for these characters and the world they live. Even though the formation of a new Land of Fae will mean the end of a series I would consider one of my favorites, I am looking forward to Brayden and Ariella's story and the epic conclusion!

Look out best seller list this book is on firer!!!! R2R (LoP) I was given this book in exchange for my honest review

Ms Dover books is like coming home to an old friend and end up meeting some exciting new ones.
Sorcha ask Calista what would you do if could see Merrick again? What wouldn't I'd do be the question. First, I'd thank the heavens and the stars for allowing me that honor, and second, I'd tell him that I missed him. This is true friendship and the lines that blew me away.
Sorcha came out fighting out of all the females in all the books so far, her red hot temper was the best.
Can you say fatal attraction that only thing I had in my mind when Alston was around, someone need to start screening these men better.
Drake was sex on a stick with something a little special in him, but you will have you read the book to find out.
I did not put this book down until I was finish reading it, that how amazing it was to me.
I am giving it a glowing 5 stars and will recommend it to everyone. If you have never read anything by L.P. Dover you are in for a treat her stories are amazing you will not put this series down until you are done!!!

Standing room only for her books :)

Summer of Frost by L. P. Dover

Eating 5,000*****

This book was provided from the author ion exchange for honest literary review.

I fell in love with this series from the first pages of Forever Fae. Each time I read the newest installment, it becomes my new favorite. This one blew me away.
Sor is a kick butt female. She has it al. She's beautiful but deadly in a fight. Fearless but has a heart that is endless. Simply amazing. Drake is on every way her bipolar opposite. He is sexy and swoonworthy with a fierce edge. He goes all out for anything and everything her believes in. These two are a delicious combination.
This book is a great blend of action, romance, suspense and betrayal. I absolutely could not put it down. I read it straight through neglecting the entire world around me. It is that good.
The characters are so deep and real they become friends you feel like u have known for life. The plot is jam packed from page one, and doesn't stop even at the end. I want to read Ari's story right now. Even the grammar is perfect.
This is one of those books you would be a fool not to read. I recommend it for ages 18+ because some of the scenes will leave you a good way.
