What you’ll find at my stop:

If Gabe and Lia had Twitter, a short conversation between the two characters.
But first…
A little on the book!

In the icy, monster-plagued world of the Frost, one wrong move and a person might end up dead—and Lia Weaver knows this better than anyone. After monsters kill her parents, she must keep the family farm running despite the freezing weather and threat of monster attacks, or risk losing her siblings to reassignment by the village Elders. With dangers on all sides and treachery just one wrong step away, she can’t afford to let her emotions lead her astray. So when her sister finds a fugitive bleeding to death in the forest, a young man from beyond the Frost named Gabe, Lia surprises herself and does the unthinkable.

She saves his life.

Giving shelter to the fugitive could get her in serious trouble. The Elders have always described the advanced society of people beyond the Frost, the “Farthers,” as ruthless and cruel, and her village has nothing to do with them. But Lia is startled to find that Gabe is empathetic and intelligent…and handsome. She might even be falling in love with him.

But time is running out. The monsters from the forest circle her farm at night. The village leader is starting to ask questions. Farther soldiers are searching for Gabe. Lia must locate a secret organization called the Thorns to help Gabe escape to safety, but each move she makes puts her in greater danger. Is compassion—and love—worth the risk?

Lia’s Twitter Name: @FrostGirl1
Gabe’s Twitter Name: @BarnDweller

How cute is this convo?

    The book sounds good!! Love the little Twitter convo:) Thanks for the post and giving me one more book to add to my wish list :)

  2. Doodle

    I would sacrifice most for Love, but not all.

    Twitter convo was great!

  3. Kelly

    Of course I would risk it all! It would be harder to grieve then die fighting for the one you love!

  4. Jacquelynne

    I think I would, lol. I am a diehard romantic & I think if you have someone to come home too every night that loves you & you love them, then you can get through anything! :D

    I love the twitter convo! SO cute!

  5. Megan

    For crazy, mind-blowing, once-in-a-lifetime love? Oh course! For the potential of love, probably not (what can I say, I'm not a gambler).

    Of course I would if its your one True Love/Soul mate you both can overcome anything with your love

  8. Krista

    I would risk everything for love. And my husband did he married me even though his family wanted him not to because of religion and we are still in love after 11 years. More and More everyday.

  9. Christina

    LOL, no. I definitely would not risk EVERYTHING for love. I'm not really a big risk taker, and I certainly would not just leap into something like that…I don't think. But, then again, maybe if I met the right person, I would change my mind.

  10. Becca H

    Hell yea I would, if that person was my soul mate.

  11. Kaerah


  12. I have and I'd do it again in a heartbeat!


    LOL @ the Twitter conversation. I haven't seen these since Finnick's Facebook wisdoms.

    Thank you for the giveaway.

  14. Hollie Georgiana

    I've never heard of this book before reading this blog post but it sounds amazing, and I think to get me to risk everything for love the boy would have to be pretty amazing!

  15. Mariah

    I would if it was true love, not this bogus high school i love you after a week kinda thing. True love deserves risks and heck those risks may pay off in the best possible way!

  16. Becky Weiner

    HMMMM I would risk almost everything but not the whole shebang for love. :-)

  17. Amy S.

    Yes, everything except the safety of my children. This book sounds so good! This is the first I have heard of it. Thanks for the chance to win a copy, signed even!

  18. Kali Skittles

    Not everything…but maybe a lot of things. ;)

  19. Depends what I would have to risk if it was someone else's life no, but anything else then yeah I would.

  20. Shadow

    This sounds great! And yes, i would sacrifice everything for love. :)

  21. BookmarkBelles

    of course i would ;)

  22. Suz Reads

    Probably…Love does make the world go 'round!

  23. Hushed Paradox

    I don't think I will risk everything for love. That seems so despertate. I will risk everything because of love though.

  24. FireStarBooks

    I would absolutely risk everything!!!

  25. Leannessf

    Yes, I would risk everything!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  27. The Howard Family

    There is nothing greater than love in this world so yes I would risk everything because without it there wouldn't be anything left to risk.

  28. Michelle

    That would be hard to do, but if I found someone I really loved then I think I would risk everything for them.

  29. Stephanie

    I'd like to say I would, but…I'm not sure. I guess I would have to wait till I was in the situation!

  30. Savannah

    I would risk almost anything…and thanks for the giveaway

  31. Mag @ Geek Chic

    Love conquers all, do yeah, I think I would.

  32. Tiffany Mahaffy

    I never answered your question sorry! Yes I would do anything for love!! Is there anything stronger than true love?

  33. Persephone

    Probably not. I'm not a hardcore romantic at heart.

  34. Veronica W.

    I would like to think so but I think it's situational.

  35. skinnylove

    Well, I don't know if I'd do everything for love. I've never really been so much in love with someone.

  36. Ula

    Anything for my soulmate.

  37. myheroin

    I think I would, but on the hand,I think it all depends on the situation.

    of course

  43. Passing Pages
