Frostbite è quello che io definirei un buon libro ma senza infamia e senza lode. È un bel libro, senza dubbio e David Wellington sa scrivere molto bene ma, aldilà di questo, non lascia strascichi, né sfavorevoli né entusiastici.

Prima di tutto dobbiamo dire che, almeno per quanto mi riguarda, la trama mi aveva tratta in inganno ed era leggermente forviante. Quello che mi ero realmente aspettata era un libro dove la Lupa in questione, Chey, si ritrova ad essere cacciata dal Lupo che l’aveva trasformata. Non mi aspettavo certo un paranormal romance né un urban fantasy ma credevo che avremmo visto il confronto fra un Alpha che vuole far fuori la Lupa che lui stesso ha creato e non certo… beh, evitiamo di spolverare tutto il libro.

Un aspetto assolutamente positivo è che Wellington gioca bene con i colpi di scena anche se, diciamola tutta, pochi sono caduti nella bugia della povera avventuriera smarrita che ha propinato a Powell. Era ovvio che ci fosse di più.

La genesi dei licantropi inventata da Wellington è originale e piacevole. L’idea della maledizione, nel vero senso della parola, la duplice essenza del maledetto, il Lupo che odia l’Umano… E che dire dei frammenti in cui la narrazione passa al Lupo? Semplicemente superlativi.

Direi che sono stati i punti in assoluto più belli di tutto il libro! Ecco perché credo che, se la cosa fosse rimasta al rapporto odio/amore/necessità/diffidenza fra i due lupi di Chey e Powell il libro avrebbe acquistato un altro valore!

Wellington è bravo! E’ freddo e deciso e primitivo quando parla della bestia e abbastanza umano e confuso quando narra le vicende degli umani, peccato che abbia perso un po’ nel volerci inserire la caccia da parte dei Bob, ex compagno profittatore di Chey, ai Lupi.

Diciamo che il punto che ho apprezzato meno, credo, sarebbe dovuto essere quello di maggior tensione. Sto proprio parlando di quando Chey viene tradita dagli umani e finisce per trovarsi fra l’incudine ed il martello. Tra chi ha tradito e chi l’ha tradita. Non saprei, forse avrebbe potuto svilupparlo meglio, dare più importanza al Lupo, ad entrambi i Lupi.

Questo è, ovviamente (che lo dico a fare), il primo libro di una saga. Vedremo come evolveranno le cose ora per Chey e Powell.

Frost Bite By David Wellington ( Warning this Contains a little bit of a spoiler)

Let me just explain something way back I posted Frostbite by David Wellington.Never got around to finishing it! Well I finally had gotten around to finishing this novel! Wow ... One word to describe this whole series would be REMARKABLE!

It's a novel about a girl named Cheyenne Clark. Who lost her father in a horrible death by a lycanthrope (Werewolf) - (Shape shifter). She ventures out in to the Arctic on her own to complete this soul mission of her's.Only to find herself face to face with a Lycanthrope.But when Chey tries to get away she gets scratched. Now this curse is passed on within herself. Now what will she do with herself?
She is out in the woods in 0 bellow weather and no means of contact from the outside world! Her cell has no bars for reception . She then stumbles upon a man mystically sitting around a campfire.
Who is this guy ? Where did he come from? Who is he?
You have to read it to find out the rest! This book only took me awhile to finish because of my day to day life. But I will tell you that if you have the time read it! Its really a page turner type worth it !!You wont wanna put it down ,read & keep reading ! David Wellington you did it again like The Monster Trilogy.
I am now on the 2nd one of the series ,[Image]
Overwinter , can't wait to read it!

If you enjoy a werewolf story different than others out there, then this is for you. Forget the werewolves who can retain humananity while in wolf form, or the ones who walk among us, for this is about the primal beast you become when you are cursed to be a werewolf. Chey's story builds throughout the book, with the real story beginning in the middle. My only problem with the story was the easiness of Chey's acceptance. I can't say more without spoiling the book. This was a great read that I could not put down and finished in 48 hours. ( )

Love this series ! Chey wants to find revenge on a werewolf for her fathers death. Only to have to curse of the wolf affect her own life now. Face to face as one of them. Highly recommend this series ( )
