A gripping, hair-raising mystery about a boy not of this world, and a girl determined to protect him.
Dusty doesnt know anything about the boy who mysteriously calls her one night as he attempts to commit suicide, then startles her with all the personal things he knows about her and her lifelike the disappearance of her brother, Josh. All she knows that there is something terribly alluring yet dangerous about him at the same time. Her curiosity drags her into an out-of-this-world intriguing mystery that makes her enemies and drives her to her tomboyish limits.
For there really ARE a lot of things strange about the boy. Like how he knows all of these intimate details about people. Or how he disappears without a trace. And then there are the stories that the angry mob from other towns tell, of the boy having a certain hold over girls and then raping them, of him disarming or killing living beings with just one wave of his hand.
Dusty doesnt know how to feel about this boy. Her family, the cops, her friends, the moball are telling her to stay away from him, she is only going to implicate herself if she continues to mess things up so that it looks like shes helping him. But all Dusty is certain of is that the mysterious boy is the key to finding out what happened to her brother Josh, all those many years ago.
And for that, she cant stop getting involved, until her very life is in mortal danger.
FROZEN FIRE is interesting a fairly well-written. A lot happens at once, which may confuse some readers, but it is a worthwhile story, with a satisfying ending.
