Publisher's Summary

Sorcerer Percival Endicott Whyborne and his husband, Griffin Flaherty, have enjoyed an unprecedented stretch of peace and quiet. Unfortunately the calm is shattered by the arrival of a package from Griffin's brother, Jack, who has uncovered a strange artifact while digging for gold in Alaska. The discovery of a previously unknown civilization could revive the career of their friend, Dr. Christine Putnam, or it might kill them all if the hints of dark sorcery surrounding the find are true.

With Christine and her fiancé, Iskander, Whyborne and Griffin must journey to the farthest reaches of the arctic to stop an ancient evil from claiming the life of Griffin's brother. But in the rough mining camp of Hoarfrost, secrets fly as thickly as the snow, and Whyborne isn't the only sorcerer drawn by the rumors of magic. Amidst a wilderness of ice and stone, Griffin must either face his greatest fear or lose everyone he loves.

    "For diehard fans only"

    I've enjoyed the series until this installment. Far too much time was spent in the first half explaining the previous books. This was pointless since the dense plots defy easy explanation and sound ludicrous as presented in brief. The supernatural story here was boring. Finally, not enough sex. Lol. A fan could skip this book and not miss a thing of interest. New listeners please start from the beginning, not here. Overall, a definite miss.

    "Very solid continuation of a great series."

    Hoarfrost mostly is business as usual, but in a good way.
    It spins on the threads of plot delivered before, it adds some new, it gives more hints and explores further...
    If you liked the previous books, you will also like this, I would say.

    I can really only lay my finger on three things I did feel could have been better (or more to my liking) but none of it is really something missing, it is actually more what I would like for the next ones.

    1. No direct appearance of Whyborne senior, I always liked how the father son relationship was worked since it always managed to subtly show that it was more complicated than just the usual "terrible father".
    2. Griffin mostly on the receiving end.I just think that he makes the better dominant partner all in all, or it might be that it is that the dynamic in the first two books was more easy to relate to me personally as a gay man.
    3. A bit less horror. Continuing the trend of book five in particular, it is more conciliatory towards the "eldritch horrors", which is not bad, but I do hope we get something really alien and scary again.

    Other than that, it had good new characters and a very nice building of suspense, since it kept me guessing to what exactly was going on, making it both logical and vague enough to make the guessing fun.

    It also elaborated more on magic in a sensible way, I especially liked that it managed to give Whyborne a difficult opponent while still staying true to characterizing him as especially powerful, that was something I really liked since it is easy to mess that up.

    I hope we will hear a lot more from Whyborne and Griffin in the future as well!

    The narrator also kept up his good work, I do really hope I may hear him in other books too, I like his style and voice for gay fiction and supernatural stories both.

    "Step aside Indiana Jones"

    Out of all the stories in the series, this was the best. It has everything.

    "Loving every minute! "

    Once again Jordan L Hawk and Julian Simmons have brought the world of Whyborne & Griffin alive. The love story woven in through the mayhem is one of the one of such sweetness and hope. It's such a fun and brilliant ride every time I listen to these stories.
