Giants of the Frost
- By: Kim Wilkins
- Narrated by: Edwina Wren
- Length: 15 hrs and 10 mins
An epic saga of love, fate and betrayal.
Victoria has chosen career over love, but starts to question this decision when she finds herself working at a remote weather research station on a tiny island off the coast of Norway. In this world of midnight sunshine, the Old Gods still watch the affairs of humanity - one of them has become fixated on Victoria, certain that she is the reincarnation of a woman he fell in love with over a thousand years before.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Shorter... it was unnecessarily drawn out in places, far too meandering.
And **SPOILER ALERT*** I found the ending miserable, depressing & unsatisfying, it ruined it for me.
What does Edwina Wren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Great accent & characterisation
If this book were a film would you go see it?
maybe, I think knowing the ending in advance would make the story more enjoyable in this case. I've never read a fantasy with such a miserable ending before & it grated against what I was expecting & I actually felt quite cross! I read fantasy to escape the **** in my own life, I don't need stories to depress me further. But if I knew what I was getting into then it's different. I think it would make an excellent adaptation, particularly with the renewed interested in Norse mythology of late.
