Blog Tour Stop: FROST by E. Latimer (Giveaway + Interview!)


I'm super excited to be part of the blog tour for Frost! Without gushing about it endlessly, Frost was the first story I read on Wattpad (which in turn, through a long series of events, led me to Patchwork Press) and I fell in love with the story and E. Latimer's writing! It's been such a privilege to watch this become a book and I'm really happy to have the chance to interview Erin about it. If you've not got yourself a copy, you really should!

Synopsis: 


Megan Walker’s touch has turned to ice. She can’t stop the frost, and the consequences of her first kiss are horrifying. 

When her new powers attract attention, Megan finds herself caught up in an ancient war between Norse giants. One side fueled by a mad queen’s obsession and an ancient prophecy about Ragnorak, the other by an age-old grudge. Both sides believe Megan to be something she’s not. Both sides will stop at nothing to have her. 

Fire or frost. It’s an impossible decision, but she’ll have to act soon, because the storm is coming.
