“Frozen Fire,” by Tim Bowler

“Frozen Fire,” by Tim Bowler is one of the most satisfying and thrilling books that I have read in a long time.Book Cover of Frozen Fire by Tim Bowler

The story begins with a mysterious phone call in the middle of the night. “I'm dying,” the voice begins, and at that moment Dusty is drawn into a supernatural mystery that will change her life forever. A strange boy has come to the small town of Beckdale. There are many stories about this boy, but everyone who has seen him or met him agrees that something isn't quite right about him. They say that he has skin, hair and eyes as white as snow. They say that he can read minds, that he knows things that there is no possible way for him to know. But they also say he possess a strange and sometimes deadly force that has killed in the past, and some are convinced that he is the culprit responsible for a series of strange rapings across the country.

Soon Dusty is pulled in two directions. She is attracted toward the boy and the mystery surrounding him, but there are others who want him dead and are hunting him down. With the whole town against her and a deadly group of vigilantes hunting her and the boy down she must choose which side she stands on.

“Frozen Fire” is without a doubt the most thrilling story I've ever read. Throughout the book there is a tense feeling of mystery and the unknown. Tim Bowler's descriptions and dialog are impressively solid, and the brief sentences that he uses have an alluring and rhythmic effect that adds to the story's psychological suspense. As events come to a head, the amazing climax of the story left me literally in awe. I have read thousands of books, and I must say that “Frozen Fire” is among the very best. This is one book that you must read.

I agree. The ending of "Frozen Fire" is rather sad. Thanks for reminding me, because I realized that I forgot to add a "Sad Stories" tag to this review.

i agree the ending was realy sad and i was in tears and i don't usualy cry at bookor movies.

i wish tim lrft room for a follow on that would have been cool

BEST ENDING TO A BK I AV EVER READ

I think that Tim Bowler did a great job of stretching the emotion out. Usually a book as exciting and thrilling as this one ends up with the bulk of the emotion at the beginning, and then quickly becoming over done. But "Frozen Fire," was, I feel, artfully balanced to have just the right amount of suspense throughout.

And the ending is perfect, just as you said. :)

I agree it's the best book I read in a while, but I didn't like the ending because the was gone and he is my favorite character. Besides that it was a great ending =D

NathanKP said...

I think the sad ending is what really gives this book its power. Right from the start you know that there is no way it can end happily, and if Tim Bowler had tried to end the book in that way it wouldn't have been as strong.

The ending indicated that Josh was the one who raped several girls (including Angelica)and "the boy" was his ghost coming back to make things right. Josh felt guilty and suicides (beginning of book phone call)

Book was pretty bad. That Tim guy doesn't know how to end his book in a satisfactorily way. People who think think this book was good, have not read 'real' literature. The plot was not very gripping and dragged on quite a bit. The author does not know how to make a compelling storyline or interesting characters. It is almost like a 8th grader wrote it.

I overall love this book 
Since I stayed up just to finish reading
because of the suspense of seeking out such a
mystery that only one must find themselves ;)
Even I nearly cried of the somewhat unexpected ending
