Audible Editor Reviews

Having established itself as a landmark of contemporary fantasy, Giants of the Frost finds itself a worthy suitor in the haunting strains of performer Edwina Wren - at once forceful and sensuous. After settling in at a remote Norwegian research station, scientist Victoria Scott soon begins to suffer an uncanny sense of déjà vu, followed by nightmarish visions. The source of these disturbances is steeped in centuries-old Pagan religion - its divine workings beyond the grasp of Victoria's scientific sensibilities.
Wren's voice-acting style is refreshingly unique and strikingly convincing, as she personifies stuffy Norwegian scientists, coarse yet mystical deities, and the incredulous heroine, chased by ancient demigods. Moreover, Wren's lilting, ethereal airs heighten the chilling atmospherics and ancient echoes that haunt this tale at every turn.

Fabulous!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is a fantastic tale of love and fate, with very believable characters brought to life by the narrator who uses many different voices and accents. I found this book whilst searching for more from this narrator, having heard other books of hers and in doing so discovered an author who I shall definitely keep an eye on.
