Publisher's Summary

After years of running, Quinn has finally found a town to settle down in while she searches for the man who tore her life apart. Despite her every intention not to, she's started to put down some roots and make friends. However, the small bit of solace she's found is quickly shattered when a group of vampires walk into the bar where she works and turn her life upside down. 

Looking only to stop for a few nights and have a good time, Julian never expected to stumble across someone like Quinn. Determined to keep her free from the vampires looking to use her as a weapon, Julian is stunned to discover himself starting to care for the mysterious woman with a dark past she's unwilling to reveal. It doesn't take him long to realize that the vampires after her are only a part of the problem. This quiet little town is hiding a violent secret of its own; a secret that not only threatens the town, but Quinn in particular.

Terrific Story & Narration🎧 A Fascinating PNR!

This book is action packed with interesting storylines that I found captivating from start to end. Erica Stevens created an imaginative and fascinating world where vampires are real and live amongst humans. Some of these vampires are like no other, they have their own unique powers while others are just ordinary blood suckers. The world dynamics amongst the vampires is changing, there is upheaval and some are trying to gain power which puts both vampires and humans at risk. Julian, a vampire is working with a team where each has their own supernatural power. They are working to get rid of the evil trying to take over. They meet Quinn an extraordinary being turned vampire, she plays down her powers and lives her life as an ordinary human tending bar at night. Julian takes a liking to her, he is curious about her and her powers. They find out she is being hunted by the evil ones, they want her for her powers, they can be used to gain power. Julian and the others will protect her. Quinn also has her own secrets and a vendetta, she wants the vampires responsible for killing her family. There is never a dull moment in this book, from the heartbreak Quinn suffered to the drama of the current time, there are twists, angst, some suspenseful moments and some heartfelt ones. Erica Stevens, thank you for another great story, I am looking forward to see what comes next for these great characters.

I listened to the Audible edition, narrated by the talented Meghan Kelly. She is a wonderfully entertaining storyteller and voice performer. She brings these characters to life, gives each their own distinct voice and personality which makes it easy to follow the story & everyone in it. She does an amazing job projecting the emotions of the characters as well as the drama of the story into her performance. It is always a pleasure to listen to her work, she has a great ability to enhance an already great story another level. Thank you for another great listen🎧

The best listen I've heard of in a while

This story was absolutely amazing. I loved all of the characters but Julian has my heart .Quinn was a perfect strong female lead . She was smart and not controlled by her urges . The narration is the best I've heard from meghan Kelly also. The performance and and story was a perfect combination .I also read a review on Amazon that this is a spin off .I honestly couldn't tell that it was but decided to go back and read the origin series. It took less than 48 hrs and now I have a permanent smile on my face. I now love Julian even more and can't wait for the rest of his story to come to Audible .

I requested this audio copy with the understanding that I would leave a honest and unbiased review .

Loved it!

I had waited for the audiobook release of Frost Burn for a couple of years. It was definitely worth the wait, I wasn't one bit disappointed. The writing was great with fascinating characters and an engaging plot that had it all, action, romance, mystery, prophecy, etc. — I relished every minute of it.

Stevens has written a riveting and suspenseful vampire romance, that captivates the reader/listeners within the first paragraph. The supernatural world and its culture are unique, and the vampires each have extraordinary abilities. I loved the main characters, Quinn and Julian. From the moment they lay eyes on each other, the attraction was there, but not insta-love. Their trust and feelings are built gradually and in working progress.

Meghan Kelly's performance was wonderful. She did an excellent job of voicing both male and female characters. Overall, Frost Burn was amazing, and I can't wait for the second book in the Fire & Ice Series.

I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

My Two Pennies

Meghan Kelly is incredible when it comes to the narration for this story. The passion and emotions poured into these characters are not only felt though the words but also heard throughout the book and each individual person stands strong with their own voice. I have read reviews that said this is a spinoff from the Kindred Series which I have not read yet but I definitely want to look into now that I’ve been introduced to Quinn and Julian. I was taken on an exciting adventure in this PNR story and was not lost in the slightest starting off with Frost Burn as my first book. This story is filled with non stop action and adventure that has a strong storyline and will keep you on your toes throughout. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series and learn more about all of these characters.

I loved this book and narrator

I wish they had not changed narrators for the 2nd book. I would also like it if Audible would add the 3rd book to this series, " Scorched Ice" , to the collection. The book is available, it has not been added to audible yet though. The good thing is that the 2nd book ended on a good note without a bad cliff hanger.

2.5, round down

2.5, round down (slightly spoilerish)

Honestly, I just didn't like this. I thought Julian was an arrogant a-hole and Quinn a bit of a limp rag. It's not that she was a weak heroine, there just kinda didn't seem to be much to her. I didn't feel their relationship grow and I was often annoyed.

What's more, the book starts with the mystery of Quinn's origins and why vampires are after her. Then, it immediately swerves off into an unrelated and immensely less interesting human investigation. The fact that these two end up being related is merely luck on the part of the characters and felt like nothing more than a manipulation of the plot on the part of the author.

I do want to address the fact that this is the first book in a spin-off series. I have not read the original series, but Frost Burn's synopsis assures me that I don't need to have read it to enjoy Frost Burn. I call BS on that. Yes, I could follow Frost Burn. But the characters and events of The Kindred Series are so often referenced that I 100% felt that I was missing out on vital information. What's more, Julian so often reminded the reader that he'd been a bad man that I believed him. That's part of why I didn't like him. Maybe if I'd read the previous series and seen his moral transformation I would feel different. And there is absolutely no character development of side characters. I assume that is because they are known from the previous series. So, I recommend reading The Kindred before this.

Lastly, I think I have to give in and accept that I don't like Meghan Kelly's narration style. That's not to say it's objectively bad, just not for me. I've listened to several of her books and while they are competently done, I find I just don't like the way she voices people.

All in all, just about nothing worked for me about this book.

Note: I received an Audible code for a copy of this book. I chose to listen and review it.

Enthralling and Surprising

I thoroughly enjoyed every part of this amazing story. The characters made me easily fall in love with them. The wonderfully original and unique storyline held my heart captive the entire time. I hope to read more from this fabulous series very soon.

Meghan Kelly once again kept me enthralled with her amazing performance. I never fail to find my attention and heart enthralled by her incredible passion and talent for the wonderful work of incredibly creative authors. I loved every second of this unforgettable adventure.

Not your everyday vampires

This is a great fast paced story. It really took me on a ride and I didn’t know what was going to happen next. The characters were multi level and the author had me hoping for the best for them.
I did listen to this on audio and Meghan Kelly did a wonderful job. She really helped draw me into the story with her different voices.

Capturing

A great narration to a capturing story! This book was wonderful and I found myself really being able to get lost in the characters. The narration was absolutely wonderful and made it so easy to follow along with different voices for each character!

Action-Packed Paranormal Romance

This is a standalone book, however, there were references to characters from another series that would have been helpful if I would have known. It was by no means a deal-breaker though for enjoying the story overall. This book is a HEA no cliffhanger romance between Quinn and Julian that is romantic and fast-paced. Although this book never had any open-door sex, it was still good if you like romances, not super cheezy like some others can be. I would recommend this audiobook to anyone who enjoys romance, vampires, and paranormal romance in general.

Meghan Kelly did a great job narrating the book.

Frost Burn

If you like PNR then this is for you.
If you have read/listened to Kindred (another series by the same author) then you will recognise the characters.
Can't wait for book two.

Frost Burn

Quinn and Julian was meant for each other. Although they had met by chance it was fated. This PNR was a great addition to my library and looking forward for more in this series. Megan Kelly did a magnificent job as always.

Definitely One for Your Audiobook Library!

"Frost Burn" was my first paranormal book and 1st book that I listen to that was by Erica Stevens and narrated by Meghan Kelly. I totally enjoyed this particular book so often, that I haven't noticed I never written a review for it until now; crazy huh?


Erica has a great handle on doing paranormal books, especially when it involves vampires and other creatures in that genre. She was able to give us Drama, Mystery, Thriller, Suspense, and a little Romance. I never felt lost or unsure about the direction Erica was leading the story or the characters.


The narrator Meghan Kelly has a God's given gift in character's voice storytelling. I was able to distinguish each characters voice to be who she wanted it to be. She never waivered, I liked that about her. I recently listened to a book and I was very disappointed with the narrator. Not only with the voice but also the narrator you could tell that she did a lot of changing up and pauses + heavy breathing in between which became very disturbing so it was nice to hear one that sounded very professional as Megan did; she work the microphone very well I was very impressed with her skills.


I've learned that Erica Stevens has turned "Frost Burn" into a Series, with "Arctic Fire" being Book, 2 in "The Fire and Ice Series" which it's out in Audible now. I looking forward to listening to it next, because I always felt Quinn and Julian's story was far from being over. I recommend this book for sure, to be part of your listening pleasure!

I started listening to this audio and found myself really enjoying the story. It was a bit different from other vampires I have read.
I haven’t read the original series this is s spin off from but easily picked up on the story.
There’s plenty of violence and a bit of romance too.
All in all a good listen. I may carry on with the series at some point.

4 1/2 stars ⭐️

I would rate this at 4 1/2 overall stars. I like Meghan as a narrator, but it seems that a dual narrative would have fit better for this book. She did a decent job, just some of the narrative for Julian in my opinion fell a little short of her talent. I’ve read the spin off series a few years ago, so I knew the background of Julian and understood him well. However, if you don’t have that background knowledge you could feel lost at times. Although Erica does touch briefly on it in this book. If I didn’t feel that understanding to be vital, I would have given this story a solid 5. The heartache felt at the end of this book will definitely have you picking up book two ASAP!

Interesting storyline with lots of potential

I really liked the premise of the storyline. It's interesting and has a lot of potential. I feel like, even though the author says you don't need to read the series that this is a spinoff from, that I would have enjoyed it more if I had. There is a lot of reference back to the other series and its characters. It causes a bit of a disconnect if you're new and just starting with this series. I'm hoping that future books will focus more on the current characters and storyline and reflect less back on the previous series.

Meghan's performance was both good and not great at the same time. Her female characters and basic story reading are great. She has a good tone, lots of inflection, etc. Her make voices on the other hand are just so dull in comparison. If she read her male characters with the same enthusiasm she does her female characters, it would have been a really good performance.
