Frozen by Erin Bowman Review

"The Heists were only the beginning.

Gray Weathersby escaped from the primitive town of Claysoot expecting to find answers, but what he discovered shook him to the core: A ruthless dictator with absolute power. An army of young soldiers blinded by lies. And a growing rebellion determined to fight back.

Now Gray has joined a team of rebels on a harsh, icy journey in search of allies who can help them set things right. But in a world built on lies, Gray must constantly question whether any ally—or enemy—is truly what they seem…"

Well, well, well. It is the sequel.. Finally. I kind of liked the storyline and the plot in the first installment, but it is always the sequels that go down hill. If the series go downwards at all.

Frozen is a crazy rollercoaster from the beginning to the end. It has nothing to do with snow, by the way. This isn't Elsa's story. Anyway, we start off with a full house. Gray's dad, Gray, Emma, the other girl, etc. This group will obviously lose someone. Or most of them. Come on! Any group this large will have somebody dying. unless they are trios. Go for Percy, Annabeth, and Grover. It goes on strong to the very end. It meaning the book, Frozen. No Percy or Annabeth or Grover. Anyway, let's move on. I have much to talk about.

Gray is on a search for more answers. Of course, that means there are more questions than answers. With his heart torn into two directions (two girls, in other words), he struggles (as always) to find the truth behind all the questions. His curiosity always gets him into terrible amounts of trouble. Including girls. His love and loyalty sadly blinds him to weaknesses like traitors and betrayals. And of course those kinds of things happen. No specifics though. Sorry, guys. No spoilers, remember?

The enemy is the Order. For those of you who haven't finished the first book or even read this series, you should stop reading right now. Major spoilers ahead! If you don't care or have no plans to read Frozen or its prequel, then continue right on. Carry on. That is the better order. Anyway, the Order is cunning. It adapts with every move Gray and his team makes. It is everywhere. >They are one enemy that is formidable. But that is the most obvious enemy. Traitors (Miss. Benedict Arnold) are what Gray and readers have to look out for. They hide among us, remember?

The ending leaves off strong. It is the end of the middle game. Soon, the end pieces will come and attack! Alright, I"ll stop talking in chess terms. By the way, I'm quite horrible at playing chess. Just not good. Always excellent at the beginning but never the end.

I'll stop talking now. Or typing. I'm going way off-topic.
