Cressenda knows how to survive. With her sled dogs as her only companions, she’s spent the past ten years hiding in the snow covered wilderness from the oppressive regime of the Affinity. When a routine trip to civilization takes a turn for the worst, Cressenda is forced to take refuge with the enemy or lose her life to the frozen countryside.
But Beckett, a Guard of the Affinity, is more than a man in uniform. His desperate need to help Cressenda escape both- the blizzard and the Affinity- makes her feelings for him all the more troubling. Will Beckett be true to his word and set Cressenda free? Will her heart let her leave after all they’ve shared?
Frozen Heart drops readers in a unique world from anything we have ever known. Without much detail I was not certain whether this was supposed to be a imaginative world, or if this was supposed to be a futuristic novel. Either way this did not hinder the understanding of this story, and it was an excited read. Crassandra was a independent and strong character. I was impressed with the drive and determination; while living a life of almost complete solitude. The romance that entails was bitter sweet. While not entirely realistic it was easy to let this story carry you away in a cloud of hope. Being so short it proves fast and easy. It was a very nice display of talent from Annabelle Blume, and it leaves me curious if what we will see next from this author.
