Reviews for Cold Fury
Review from Esther's Ever After
This book intrigued me as soon as I read the plot synopsis. It sounded so thrilling and adventurous that I couldn't help but read it. I've never quite read anything at all like this novel. It's a thrilling and exciting and adventurous read that I'm so glad I took a chance with.
Reasons to Read:
1.One of the strongest female protagonists I have read about:
Sara is a main character that I really, really have to admire. She is incredibly strong and clever. She is placed in this really hard situation, and yet she manages to almost keep it fully together the entire time. While she does fall apart at one time, she is able to get back up again and keep moving forward. She knows when to attack her enemies and when to hold it back. While she is a really strong heroine, at the same time she is only a teenage girl. That side of her still shows through in some instances, which I felt made her feel more real.
2.Easy to understand:
I wasn't quite sure of how much I would be able to understand the parts about the Mob in the novel. I don't have a lot of background information on it, so I hoped that I wouldn't have to know all about it in order to understand. I was really glad when I started reading it, and all the things that were mentioned, were explained. It's good to have a litle bit of information beforehand, but I don't think that it's necessary for the book to make sense. Complicated situations I thought were explained fairly simply, which I was really glad of.
I will admit that the first third or so of this book goes by a bit slow. A lot of it is background stuff that happens way before the book's main plot. While it is a bit tedious, I was glad of it because without it I don't think that the book would make as much sense. I know that this novel has a lot of mixed reviews, but I think that it's really good. I would reccomend this to someone looking for a thrilling read.
