I was recommended Frost (a book written by M. P. Kozlowsky) by a friend, who said it was her favourite book. Maybe my expectations were too high. The world building works, and is interesting, but it is missing a lot of key points. There are many subplots, and though they are all intriguing separately, they don’t mesh very well. Another draft would’ve been useful to help tie everything together. The ideas are excellent, the execution is merely decent. Many of the plotlines are either unresolved by the end of the book, or hastily concluded in ways that could have been written better. Even the actual ending is vague, and the characters’ fate is still undetermined. The twist ending was unexpected, and makes sense when looking back at it, though a little bit more foreshadowing would have been nice. The writing itself is great, and the prose and descriptions are very good. Frost herself is a sweet character, with realistic emotions, goals, wants, and seems very human. Bunt and her father are also written well. Frost was a decent book, full of suspense and mystery, with a charming premise. If you don’t think too hard about it, Frost is a very good book. 3/5

The author of "Frost", M.P Kozlowsky wrote a very suspenseful, and thrilling book about a sixteen year old girl named Frost who only has her pet broot, her father, and a robot servant in her life. She loves her broot, but unfortunately, her beloved broot falls very ill. Frost knew that she had to save him no matter. So, she set out to find the medicine that can cure her pet. On her way, she meets some people who first seemed untrustworthy, but were later on proven nice. They joined her in finding the medicine. The entire journey is well explained and is fun to read. There are many fictional things in the book. This movie was a little boring at times, but new twists made it more interesting afterwards. This book could have been better with more real life characters instead of fictional. All the make believe things in the book distracted me as a reader from the main point of the book. I really liked the fact that Frost's father was in the robot father, and that he faded in and out at different times. Those were times when her father would guide her and try to help her. Overall, this was a good book to read but It could have been much better. I would recommend reading this book once. Rating- 3.5/5 @Vanilla of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Frost is one of the few books I’ve read that were written in third-person, and I’d assumed it was written in that view to differentiate from other books and simply make it easier for readers to follow along. What I didn’t realize until the last few chapters was that this helped build up suspense until the end, as that’s where Frost’s true identity and the novel’s purpose was revealed. The main reason why I wouldn’t call “Frost” completely original is because Frost’s plot seems cliché as its suspenseful scenes are always cut short by overused heroic acts or a swarm of zombie-robots, a storyline that has been around for a great amount of time now. However, I feel the need to acknowledge the subplots of the novel that were, in fact, inventive as they definitely raised the bar for thriller/action books. For instance, Frost had found out that the source of the devastation linked to her father, the inventor who created these zombie-robots. Because of that, John Lord forced Frost and her deteriorating father to perform a surgery that would make him stronger, while held at gunpoint. Overall, “Frost” by M. P. Kozlowsky was beautifully written and I can definitely say it’s opened my eyes to a much broader social level when it comes to evaluating other people’s thoughts and perspectives. Rating 3.5/5 stars.

Frost is determined to save her ill pet, even if it means going on a dangerous journey filled with "zombies" and rogue robots. Dystopian novel alert!

This book ended up being better than expected. I picked it up on a whim, thinking to compare it to some books with a similar idea of a future with robots. It exceeded my expectations.

This story tells the tale of Frost, a young teen who was trying to survive and save her ill pet Broot named Romes with the help of her father, who’s conscious is in a robot, named Bunt. They travel in seek of the Battery, a place supposedly free of the horrors around them.

Something enjoyable about this book was the fact that it was never overly predictable, it ended up surprising me. Never judge a book by it’s cover after all, especially with the depiction of a rose being held on the cover, making it seem like romance would be more prominent. I’m not complaining, I’m glad romance didn’t abruptly take over the plot.

The plot for this book is fittingly morbid for this prospect of this future, I enjoyed the character interactions more then usual in this type of plot. I was pleased that not all the interactions were pleasant, they are in the wasteland of the world after all. I was also pleased with the pacing of Flynn and Frost’s bond. The imagery and plot twists in this were brilliant! I hope for a sequel.

I would recommend this book to those who like suspense. Although not for those who like world building and wish for an ending that gives closure.

Even several days after finishing this, I still feel like I'm processing the story. I was drawn in by the cover, thinking I was getting another sci-fi fairytale retelling. Not at all! This felt more like a cross between iRobot and I am Legend to me. Frost is a great main character and it was fascinating to experience a post-apocalyptic version of our world with her, her pet broot, Romes, and Bunt, the robot.
