Goodreads Synopsis:

Every young witch looks forward to her first Solstice Stones. The pride of representing her coven against the warlocks. The rush from her first taste of dark magic.
But a few short minutes into the Stones, and Lily’s lifelong dream turns into a nightmare of pain and regret. Betrayed not once, but twice, her restraint snaps—with dire consequences. 
Lily is wracked with guilt and on the run from the powerful Congression, when her broken confidence is further shattered by an ugly secret from the past. As her options dwindle, Lily is forced into a distasteful alliance.
Will she be able to find her way back to the light? Or will darkness consume her before dawn's new day?

My Thoughts: 

The Cover: The cover is very much the same as the first two, but with a darker shade. Lily's orange fiery eyes are kinda scary and the frosted lilies along the edge give a dark and ominous feeling.

The Plot:  Holy!! Although this book didn't have that total addiction for me, it was still very well written and entertaining. There were some totally unexpected twists and turns. Without giving anything away, I am so glad some things turned out one way and so sad other things went other ways. Devil's Frost brought such a variety of emotion—anger, wonder, joy, frustration.

The Characters: Again, Heidi's characters are very well written. Lily and Logan continue to develop as they learn things about themselves and each other. Chance and Orchid continue to be favorites. They didn't go in the direction I had hoped they would, but they both played pretty big parts in the story. And I am so confused as to which side some characters are on!

Is it Worth Reading?:  Yes! Yes! Yes! This chapter in the Spellspinners of Melas County is definitely worth reading; the plot just gets thicker. Were is Heidi going to take us next? I can't wait for Book 4, but in the meantime I highly recommend Devil's Frost. But, if you haven't read Witch's Brew and The Gleaning, read those first. Devils Frost gets 4/5 crossbows.
