Frost Fire (Tortured Elements #1) by Olivia Rivers

“Magic is just like love, Allai. It won’t wait for permission before it destroys you.”

Like sand in an hourglass, Allai’s future is dwindling away. She’s spent her entire life fighting the Mages who threaten humanity, and dreams of someday eradicating magic. But all it takes is an anonymous phone call for the truth to spill out: Allai is the one thing she despises most.

She’s a Mage.

Though ancient law mandates Allai’s death, she still has one last chance of survival. His name is Drake Rhaize, and he swears he can lead Allai to a sanctuary for Mages. Allai hasn’t seen Drake in years, but she remembers him as the Demon boy who used to hold her close and softly whisper that he’d keep her safe. But Drake has changed since then: He’s now suspected of murder, and has been out-casted for betraying his own kind.

While Allai doesn’t trust Drake, she has no choice but to put her life in his hands and hope he can get her to safety. Because Allai’s father has hired a pack of Demons to bring her back to him, dead or alive–and Demons never stop the hunt.

"Frost Fire" is a YA Paranormal Romance intended for ages 14+.

Frost Fire is a “Good Reads and Good Deeds” book. All net proceeds for Frost Fire go toward the Dysautonomia Youth Network of America, a charity that supports youth with medical conditions affecting the nervous system.

At first I thought Allai was going to be a total BA. Then she just turned into this huge blubbering idiot. She's in a catatonic shock for what seems like half the book! Staring into space, not responding to anyone. Wake up, honey! You're being chased by demons and need to get your act together if you and Drake want to survive. And Drake's words describe Allai perfectly: "She was so pitiful, so helpless and sad." Yeah, that's basically what she's like throughout the whole book. She almost gets Drake killed at one point because she's too incompetent to respond to danger. Allai just stares at the fight while Drake is getting ripped to pieces, almost dying.

And Drake is hot one moment cold the next. I couldn't get a feel for the guy, which annoyed the crap out of me.

The only character I actually liked was Luke. he cared for Allai and would do anything to protect her.

I don't recommended this book. But just because I didn't like, doesn't mean you won't
