Publisher Comments:

For Cheyenne Clark, there's a bad moon on the rise . . .

There's one sound a woman doesn't want to hear when she's lost and alone in the Arctic wilderness: a howl.

When a strange wolf's teeth slash Cheyenne's ankle to the bone, her old life ends, and she becomes the very monster that has haunted her nightmares for years. Worse, the only one who can understand what Chey has become is the man–or wolf–who's doomed her to this fate. He also wants to chop her head off with an axe.

Yet as the line between human and beast blurs, so too does the distinction between hunter and hunted . . . for Chey is more than just the victim she appears to be. But once she's within killing range, she may find that–even for a werewolf–it's not always easy to go for the jugular.

Review:

"Nipped by a wolf during an Arctic camping expedition, Cheyenne Clark suddenly finds herself feeling ferally frisky when the moon is up in Wellington's far from routine werewolf tale. It turns out that Monty Powell, the loner who gives Chey refuge, is no ordinary guy, but the werewolf who turned her. But then Chey is no ordinary camper: she was sent to draw Monty out by a band of professional hunters who want the oil beneath the vast acreage Monty prowls — and to avenge the death of her father, whom Monty coincidentally slaughtered two decades before. Wellington (23 Hours) gets surprising mileage out of this tortuously improbable plot, hinging it on Chey's difficulty choosing between the gun-toting human mercenaries who are using her as bait and Monty, a victim of supernatural circumstances who understands her plight better than anyone else."

I loved this book. I have also read the second book, overwinter. They are both amazing books. Both very well-written and intense. The second book's ending made me ball and I cannot believe that it's over! I hope Wellington writes a third one. I'm only thirteen, but honestly I think these are the best books I will ever read. I feel that these books have an impact on me and they definitely wedged into my brain and I don't think I'll ever forget about them. Sounds cheesey, I know. But cut me come slack, I'm only 13! Again, I am absolutely inlove with these books.

Frostbite is fast-paced and full of action, it did not disappoint. The characters are interesting and the brand of lycanthropy in the book is so devastating to their lives that it's hard not to sympathize with them. The settings are fleshed out and vivid. The only thing I didn't care much for were the transformation scenes, they were just too simple. Otherwise, Frostbite is a fresh and fun new addition to the werewolf genre.
