    WHAT? THAT'S IT??? You can't do this to me I demand a second book So many unanswered uestions Ugh fine But just remember I haven't dropped this yet I will get my second book You are love Frost You are the epitome of it You are the warmth it carriesI'm telling you those things think they're alive Frost Can you imagine? Being trapped inside a wall for all eternity? The darkness that envelops you and not glimpses of light? It must be like vein buried aliveAt one point they came across a rotting severed finger that still had a ring on it There was a pair of baby shoes practically new the laces still tied Wedged within a large crack was a doll ragged but still smiling Despite her growing anxiety Frost smiled backThis book was so friggin creepy I loved it Then he grabbed the flower from Frost's hair and fed it to one of the broots and Frost felt her heart shatter into a million little piecesIt broke my heart multiple times What what makes people become like that? she asked No one knows Frost It is just the way of this worldCan that happen to me?It happened to your motherIt left me speechless He pulled her in close kissing the top of her head with great force 'I love you little girl I love you than anything and that's why I'm doing this So I can always be with you So I can always help you I'm never leaving Never' Frost nodded and her father wiped a year away from her eye 'Now put them on and go read whatever book you like best Read your favourite one and let the story do what stories are supposed to do Let it take you far awayAnd it was truly breathtaking 3 One of my new favourite books ever I loved it Highly recommend I to anyone and everyone Please check it out A beautiful 5 stars 3

    25 starsThis book has a really cool concept but it was so slow and in my opinion poorly written It was pretty predicable and I didn't connect with the characters at all Everything seemed plain I really liked the concept though and there was a lot of cool ideas through out the book But this book just wasn't for me Maybe if you're not a critical reader you'll like this book a lot than I did

    Frost knows full well why she's spent her entire life cramped in a tiny apartment and why she's never met another human aside from her father She even understands why he expressly forbids her to go out and find medicine for her dying pet After all their city is a ruined wasteland and is a hunting ground for Eaters and robots gone rogue any other human caught outside is fair game But her father isn't exactly her father not any Technically his memories are giving the orders from their old robot servant that he uploaded his consciousness into as he was dying and now that tech is malfunctioning so sometimes her father fades away and the robot's personality rises back to the surface When Frost learns that there may be medicine across the city that could save her pet she's willing to do anything she can to rescue the only living thing in her life Hopefully her first journey outside of books and windows won't be her only journey Frost by MP Kozlowsky is a YA post apocalyptic sci fi novel is a twisty ride featuring humans vs robots vs cannibals conflict in a ruined cityscape which explores what it means to be human I took note of this novel as soon as I saw it around the blogosphere months ago and I'm glad I finally got the chance to pick it up It's easily one of my favorite post apocalyptic YA novels that I've read this year The novel really left me in suspense and kept me turning the pages as uickly as I could I just had to know about the characters their world everything There's plenty of action and twists and turns to keep me invested Frost is a very intriguing character For a good deal of the story she is the only human a few of others are introduced later against a backdrop of a ruined city robots in various malfunctioning states and what they call Eaters We're with her near constantly so her struggle to stay human in a crumbling world and do everything she can to ensure the survival of herself and her loved ones is right at the forefront of the story In regards to the humans vs robots vs cannibals these elements of the story are fascinating Of course I found myself most interested when it came to the topic of the robots especially considering the situation with Frost's father Without giving away spoilers when Frost was younger he uploaded his consciousness into a chip that was inserted into their robot servant For all intents and purposes he now has the body of the robot That is up until a malfunction causes the robot to rise to the surface and causes her father to disappear sometimes We get to see other robots who are attempting an uprising against humans to see what their idea of humanity is is pretty fascinating In regards to the cannibals Frost refers to them as Eaters at first I was thinking that they're strictly zombies but I wouldn't uite call that the case I'd say that they're definitely along the lines of cannibals instead Either way Frost finds herself right in the middle of what is still basically a robot uprising and zombie apocalypse Overall Frost is a twisty and entertaining new YA novel that's a must read for fans of YA sci fi dystopian and post apocalyptic novels It's also a novel that provides an intriguing commentary on what it means to be human over the course of a character's journey that simply begins as a mission to find medicine for an ailing pet As much as I enjoyed the novel I wish I knew right now if it's just going to be a standalone or if it's going to be the first in a series I want to know if we're going to get a bigger picture of this ruined world or not because I want to see these characters again If you enjoy James Dashner and Moira Young with a hint of Isaac Asimov I have a feeling you'll want to be introduced to MP Kozlowsky's Frost

    Um ok Just realized I never reviewed this book and it's been a year lolBut my general thoughts have been and still are this was an enjoyable book The main character is a bit annoying but I loved the multiple plot lines and the world building 😊 For a while I thought there would be a second book but never saw anything come of it? I'll still keep my eyes open just in case If there was a second book I'd definitely pick it up

    A post apocalyptic world slowly laid out and explained as the story moves along is the backdrop for a story of human love and hopeFrost a teenage girl is losing all of her loved ones In an attempt to save her beloved pet the last thing she can physically cling to she leaves the relative safety of her apartment to risk the streets of a city torn apart by the Days of BedlamThe people she meets along the way and the horrific sights she endures fight against the hope she carries within her Nothing can diminish her love for her family her pet and even the strangers she meetsIn the end we see how she has slowly been preparing for a new reality that does not take away but merely adds to her character and embodiment of true and noble desiresAimed at YA readers I feel this would connect with teen readers better than tweens but is still suitable for around 6th grade and up Profanity is sparse with perhaps 2 mild utterances Sexual content is absent with merely a lingering kiss after a heroic rescue Violence is the most prevalent element but still limited and described in broad terms The author could have easily inserted graphic material but reigned it in to keep this work accessible to a younger audience I received a free copy of this book from Goodreads giveaways and have reviewed it honestly

    This was so slow It was an interesting idea but unfortunately poorly executed The ending was not what I wanted after reading all of that I received an ARC in order to write an honest review for School Library JournalThe following is the review written for and published in School Library JournalKozlowsky MP Frost 341 p Scholastic October 2016Gr 7 Up Described as a dystopian fairy tale Kozlowsky’s novel will appeal to many genre YA readers Sixteen year old Frost must cross a treacherous landscape in order to save her beloved pet from death accompanied by her robot caretaker Out of the apartment she lived her life in Frost discovers the Eaters and rogue robots that plague the world after the Days of Bedlam Frost must fight her way through many obstacles to reach her beacon of hope the BatteryWhile written as a YA novel this will appeal to younger readers as there is very little strong language and any violence is not overly descriptive The main character does feel younger than her years which could be attributed to how she grew up There is wonderful world building but the pacing is slightly off Certain events happen very uickly while others drag out There is also a disconnect between the storylines with the Eaters and the robots It feels as if two different worlds were pushed together Readers may also assume this is a fairy tale retelling which it is not It is instead a new “fairy tale” for the modern ageVERDICT An interesting twist on commonly used themes in pop culture today but has a disconnect between the two ideas Good for younger tweens or teens looking for dystopian fiction

    I don't like won't read zombie books but I decided to make an exception with this book because robots The idea of a world with both robots and zombies rather 'eaters' which are different from zombies because they can talk and still somewhat control themselves and their dietary cravings and even appear normal intrigued me This was a bit slow for my liking There are parts where I not only doubled the speed but I also thought about dnf ing it I'm glad I finished it though Something happened at the end that I wasn't expecting but I really liked it In fact I think when that 'something' happened I liked the book much And I love the coverAll in all it was okay It showed potential and I'm hoping the next book utilises that potential However I would NOT recommend the audiobook The narrator's voice was fine but the redneck voices bugged me That said redneck voices always bug me But than that it was the robot voices that really annoyed me Probably didn't help that I had increased the speed Needless to say I will be reading the next book Is there a next book?? Not sure but I would read from this author

    This book was absolutely wonderful I had thought it would be cheesy and cliched but the book fleshed out pun fully intended right from the beginning Best book of the year so far

    Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Talesuick Dirty First read of 2017 and unfortunately a disappointing one at thatOpening Sentence In the middle of the bombed out room flickered a small fire and near it sat FrostExcerpt NoThe ReviewIn Frost we see a young girl who is almost an orphan in a land being overtaken by robots or ‘broots’ I say almost because although both her mother and father are dead her father built robots and somehow left a piece of him inside one so that sometimes the robot is just that a robot But other times it speaks to her like her father did like an engineered ghost To begin with Frost is stuck in a room by herself until she decides to venture out into the dangerous world against the advice of the robot father Once she’s out there it’s problem after problem and she essentially sees a chaotic world with only a faraway light known as the ‘battery’ to give her hope for her dying petIt is definitely a depressing read especially when she finally meets another human a boy her age called Flynn only to be taken from him straight to the evil genious himself the Good Lord John It was a bizarre read showing that although the war was against the robots it was humans who created the incredibly intelligent robots to begin with Unfortunately for them the robots were too intelligent and soon enough realised that they were superior so no longer had use for the humans I found it a little scary because technology is becoming increasingly advanced so the story doesn’t seem that far off a potential reality But let’s not go down that road for nowFrost’s love for her pet and her determination to make him better was sweet Even when she’s starving her pet has next to no hope of survival she refuses to leave him behind At times her love for her pet surpasses the love for her ‘ghost’ father which is sad but made sense because her pet was the only thing around real enough to merit her emotional investment until Flynn arrives Flynn also has a similar sad story But unlike Frost he hasn’t been sheltered his entire life from the cruelty of the robots He’s experienced it first hand and as a result has had to fight to survive on his own from a very young ageShe liked seeing him smile seeing his kindness break through Moving toward him she noticed that every time she took a step closer he took a step back his display of hostility uickly breaking down It was a sort of dance and Frost wished there was music Or at least music s she’d always imagined it to sound likeThe concept of war against advancing technology is one I’ve read too many times and unfortunately there wasn’t anything uniue in this book that would make me recommend it as a read The book took me a lot longer to read than I anticipated and though the ending had a few surprising twists it wasn’t enough to make me enjoy the story overallNotable SceneIt was what she had been teaching him all along Hope was the last spark of life When everything else in you died – when your world has collapsed and your love is gone along with your humor and your empathy and your understanding; when your beliefs have dried up and your motivation has been depleted and your will has been shattered; when you believe you have absolutely nothing left; when you feel the deep hole in your soul the emptiness – there lies the smallest of sparks that will start the largest of fires hope It was in him still All this time he thought it was goneFTC Advisory Scholastic Press provided me with a copy Frost No goody bags sponsorships “material connections” or bribes were exchanged for my review

    An intriguing dystopian novel filled with suspense on every page From the Eaters to the robots to the Good John Lord page turner till the end The main character Frost is a likable young girl who just wants to save her dog Romes and she is willing to risk everything to do it After the first chapter I was hooked The suspense of the Eaters grabbed me and the journey Frost embarks on with Romes and her protective robot Bunt sent me on a roller coaster ride that I didn't want to end MP Kozlowsky continues to astound with this dystopian tale of mayhem determination and hope Kozlowsky has an amazing talent and a brilliant mind
