Delaney has been kidnapped by aliens. Again. After only a month back on Earth with her hotnew alien boyfriend Ruckus, the deadly and devastatingly handsome prince Trystan has dragged her right back to his planet.
While some girls may dream of winning a prince’s heart, Delaney just wishes this one would leave her alone. Instead, she finds herself at the center of both a tense political battle between two alien kingdoms and Trystan’s romantic attentions, both of which are absolutely ruining the life she’s built on Earth. Not to mention the fact that she’s about to be crowned queen of a planet she’s barely even visited. Just another day in life of an ordinary human girl.
I just couldn’t get enough. I had a hard time putting Between Frost and Fury down. I just wanted more, more, more, and the only reason I didn’t finish it in one sitting, was because it was 12:30am, and my eyes started to burn. When I woke up at 8:00am, I snatched it off of my nightstand, and refused to get out of bed until it was finished. Guys, this series is THAT addicting.
More than meets the eye. In my review for Amid Stars and Darkness, I said that I was intrigued by Trystan’s character. Now after finishing Between Frost and Fury, I’m completely obsessed. Delaney tries so hard to hate Trystan, but slowly, and at first unwillingly, she sees that he’s not all bad. Trystan’s a tough egg to crack, and when he finally starts to, Delaney acknowledges that there’s some justifiable reasons as to why he became so cold. Trystan starts a journey to redemption in Between Frost and Fury, and I can’t wait to see more of it in book three.
Sorry Ruckus, it’s not you, it’s me. I was a total #relaney fan in book one. I thought that Delaney and Ruckus were cute together and had great chemistry. Now after reading Between Frost and Fury, and I feel so bad saying this, I’ve decided to ditch #relaney at the train station so I can jump on the #drystan train. Delaney and Trystan spent a lot of time together in this book, and because of it, I felt like Relaney built a deeper, more passionate connection with Trystan than she ever did with Ruckus.
Great character growth. #Drystan aside, I’m glad that Delaney spent some time apart from Ruckus in Between Frost and Fury. She relied on him a lot in Amid Stars and Darkness, and by being on her own more, she got stronger, wiser, and more independent.
Sometimes I love being wrong. When I first read the description for Between Frost and Fury, and it said that Delaney was being brought back to Xenith to be queen, I thought it was pretty obvious why and how. My assumptions were slightly right, but mostly wrong. I loved the surprise/twist!
If you like hot aliens, romantic tension, and clever, cheeky, strong heroines – you’ll love The Xenith series!
I dare you to go get book one asap so you can fully understand why I can’t get enough of this series.
