    Between Frost and Fury is the second novel in The Xenith Trilogy by Chani Lynn Feener and is an exhilarating and enjoyable sci-fi tale that takes readers back into an intriguing and appealing intergalactic world full of colourful characters.

    Delaney Grace was only back on Earth with her new boyfriend Ruckus for one month before she was kidnapped by aliens; again. Now she is being held prisoner by the devastatingly handsome and determined alien prince Trystan who wants to use Delaney to enter into a peace treaty with his people’s enemies…..through holy matrimony. Trystan is sure the best way to unite the Kint and Vakar people is through a marriage and seeing as Delaney was technically the person he was bound to when she was impersonating the Vakar heir, Trystan is determined to make Delaney follow through with her promise. Stuck in the middle of a political battle between two kingdoms, Delaney must navigate Trystan’s romantic attentions as well as find a way to get back home to earth before she is named queen of a planet she desperately wants to escape. Yet as it becomes clear that Trystan’s plan isn't the biggest danger out there, will Delaney's loyalties change or will she continue to only be a pawn in someone else's game?

    Heading into Between Frost and Fury I was somewhat perplexed. I immensely enjoyed the first novel, Amid Stars and Darkness, and given it’s shocking cliff-hanger ending was eager to see what Chani Lyn Feener did next, but I was also worried. Not over the quality of writing or the excitement I was sure was to come with the storyline. I was worried about a potential love triangle. I’ve probably said this before, but one of my biggest pet peeves is the dreaded love triangle and I was afraid that this would become an issue within this story. Something that eventually came to pass….but boy if I don’t like the way in which Chani Lyn Feener writes this particular love triangle. If there’s one thing I hate more than love triangles it’s love triangles where I genuinely love both love interests. And this is what Feener has done with Between Frost and Fury!

    I very much enjoyed the relationship between Delaney and Ruckus in the first novel, but oh how my heart bleeds for Trystan in this instalment. It’s very rare that I switch teams after making my choice, but in this instance I may have to make an exception as there’s just something so captivating about Trystan. The depth and nuances Chani Lyn Feener explores and introduces within him in Between Frost and Fury truly make me adore the guy even if I can see why he continues to frustrate and enrage Delaney. I do feel like he deserves happiness so I'll be keen to see if he's the one to get the girl.

    Chani Lyn Feener has a likeable protagonist in Delaney who is sarcastic and fiery in all the right ways. She's sharp and quick on her feet and I've enjoyed following her throughout the trilogy so far although I do admit I very much appreciated the chapters and glimpses through Trystan's eyes in this instalment. This made it much easier to see where he was coming from and what he was feeling while still being able to stand with Delaney as she navigated the circumstances she found herself in.

    Between Frost and Fury builds to another climactic ending which sees Delaney come to some unwanted truths about her feelings and leaves the characters in a situation where they'll need to all come together to defeat a massive threat. Chani Lyn Feener leaves me dying for the third and final instalment, once again eager to see what will happen next with this thrilling trilogy.

    I just couldn’t get enough. I had a hard time putting Between Frost and Fury down. I just wanted more, more, more, and the only reason I didn’t finish it in one sitting, was because it was 12:30am, and my eyes started to burn. When I woke up at 8:00am, I snatched it off of my nightstand, and refused to get out of bed until it was finished. Guys, this series is THAT addicting.

    I just couldn’t get enough. I had a hard time putting Between Frost and Fury down. I just wanted more, more, more, and the only reason I didn’t finish it in one sitting, was because it was 12:30am, and my eyes started to burn. When I woke up at 8:00am, I snatched it off of my nightstand, and refused to get out of bed until it was finished. Guys, this series is THAT addicting.

    More than meets the eye. In my review for Amid Stars and Darkness, I said that I was intrigued by Trystan’s character. Now after finishing Between Frost and Fury, I’m completely obsessed. Delaney tries so hard to hate Trystan, but slowly, and at first unwillingly, she sees that he’s not all bad. Trystan’s a tough egg to crack, and when he finally starts to, Delaney acknowledges that there’s some justifiable reasons as to why he became so cold. Trystan starts a journey to redemption in Between Frost and Fury, and I can’t wait to see more of it in book three.

    Sorry Ruckus, it’s not you, it’s me. I was a total #relaney fan in book one. I thought that Delaney and Ruckus were cute together and had great chemistry. Now after reading Between Frost and Fury, and I feel so bad saying this, I’ve decided to ditch #relaney at the train station so I can jump on the #drystan train. Delaney and Trystan spent a lot of time together in this book, and because of it, I felt like Relaney built a deeper, more passionate connection with Trystan than she ever did with Ruckus.

    Great character growth. #Drystan aside, I’m glad that Delaney spent some time apart from Ruckus in Between Frost and Fury. She relied on him a lot in Amid Stars and Darkness, and by being on her own more, she got stronger, wiser, and more independent.

    Sometimes I love being wrong. When I first read the description for Between Frost and Fury, and it said that Delaney was being brought back to Xenith to be queen, I thought it was pretty obvious why and how. My assumptions were slightly right, but mostly wrong. I loved the surprise/twist!

    If you like hot aliens, romantic tension, and clever, cheeky, strong heroines – you’ll love The Xenith series! I dare you to go get book one asap so you can fully understand why I can’t get enough of this series.

    After reading Amid Stars and Darkness, I was

    . Like, jumping up and down in my room trying to get rid of some pent-up energy jonesing. And babbling to people around me about a frustration over fictional people that they just did not get. So by the time I finally got my hands on this book, I was drunk on happiness.

    After so much anticipation, and how high my expectations became for the sequel, you’d think the sequel couldn’t possibly be able to live up to what I wanted from it. But it did!

    (Sorry, Miss Chani, for putting all of my readerly expectations on you. And thank you for giving me everything I wanted anyway.) This is not a relaxing read. If you want to find the energy to train for a marathon, then read this.

    , which for me came primarily from wanting the EXACT OPPOSITE of what our protagonist Delaney wants. It’s a 

    . Perhaps I’m masochistic, but that’s exactly what I look for in a romance novel. I hate when they give me exactly what I want without making the characters work for it. Insta-love makes zero sense to me. 

    In the end of space drama part one, Delaney finally gets to go home to earth with a hunky new boyfriend. And at the end of part one, she is kidnapped to go back to dramaville by another hunky, though possessive, prince-of-enemy-territory. All she wants is her normal life as a human girl back. Which is EXACTLY what I DID NOT want.

    Possessive hunk-prince Trystan takes Delaney back to the planet she ran from to fulfill her role as the Vakar lissa (princess) because the real lissa Olena is a monster, and if she takes over, then Trystan will be stuck with her along with a whole planet of people who hate her. Also, if Trystan marries Olena, then there’s no one to protect Earth. Trystan would have no reason to stop his father from conquering Earth. Delaney is in the odd position of being able to protect Vakar and Earth because she’s technically representative of both, and Trystan is honor-bound to protect the home(s) of his spouse.

    I’m continually at odds with what Delaney wants, which is an unending frustration for me as a reader. She wants to go home; I want her to be a Vakar ruler. She wants Ruckus; I want Trystan. She wants everything to go back to normal. I want her to dive further into the rabbit hole. I hard-core judge Delaney for her decisions. Disney has conditioned me to believe that everyone wants to be a princess, so I just don't get her choices.

    She’s being offered (or rather coerced into taking) a two kingdoms and a hunky prince—oh, and sweet, priceless tri-world peace—and

    . I couldn’t disagree with her more, which resulted in a lot of yelling at the pages of this book.

    Delaney

    There’s so much focus on how Delaney is not like Olena, but what they have in common is that they both make selfish choices. There’s a clear void that needs to be filled with someone that cares about the welfare of the people from Vakar and Earth, but

    And technically they are, but the alternative is letting the universe go to war and she still won’t take charge.

    Yes, her selfish wants are a way of humanizing her and making us relate to her, but by the end, we still want her to be our heroine — to step up to the plate and be more than average, to fill the absent role and protect not just those she cares about but two whole planets of people who need an advocate. Delaney doesn’t walk all over people the way Olena does, but that just means Delaney isn’t human garbage. She needs more to set her apart.

    Trystan

    Her defiance and strength help us to root for her, but

    . His one selfish choice is Delaney, so he does make the questionable decision of kidnapping her. But Delaney’s selfish choice is also herself. The difference is that Trystan’s selfish choice means the freedom of three worlds whereas Delaney’s means freedom for one. But even his decision is understandable once you get where he’s coming from (or maybe I'm just rooting for him so much that I'll overlook his flaws). He’s got feelings he doesn’t quite understand, so that makes him rash, but he also knows that Olena ruling over anyone isn’t a good thing. He’s trying to be responsible and broker peace, and attempting a solution that works out for the greatest number.

    I understand how making kidnapping seem like the right decision can be a trigger point for some, but Trystan isn’t a perfect character. If this is a dealbreaker for you, then that’s understandable, but this is the second kidnapping episode so far in the series, so if you had a problem with it the first time, then you’re probably not considering reading the second. 

    Who to choose

    Just a

    . I'm not a fan of Ruckus. It's clear from the last book that he'll put his orders before Delaney, and I'm not getting the vibe that he believes there's any potential in Delaney as a leader. His feelings for her are legitimate, and sure he's a "good guy," but

    . With Trystan, she's on a path that gives her more purpose. Personally, I think that's just a better storyline. So yes, my Trystan love comes from a place of indulgence, but I also love the potential for a bigger story.

    But also, Trystan is just yummy.

    The whole time I’m yelling at her, telling her to accept her call to adventure, but she’s like, nah, I want to go home and BE VANILLA.

    We do get some payoff in the hero development department, but it takes FOREVER.

    The ending to the first book gave me jitters waiting for the continuation of the story, and completely unsatisfied with the enormity of it’s cliffhangery. The ending of this one left me looking forward to the next but still satisfied (though not completely) at the transition we’ve reached.

    I totally like Trystan

    more than Ruckus. (Who's Ruckus?) Ruckus was hardly in this one, which was amazing - especially since I am TOTALLY on Team Trystan!

    Sorry if this sounds like I am totally against Ruckus... It's because I am. Delaney is stupid for not seeing how Ruckus is not the right choice. Trystan is sooo much better, Delaney!! What are you thinking??? Make the right choice!

    After writing this, I feel better but I really do need that next book!

    The second instalment in the Xenith trilogy, Between Frost and Fury continues the thrilling and romantic tale of Delaney being kidnapped by aliens to be alien royalty. I swear this isn't trash, its a true blast to read. Amid Stars and Darkness and Between Frost and Fury are like junk food, you know they are not good for you but you just can't stop eating! It tastes so good! Delaney has once again been abducted by aliens, but this time it was on purpose. Trystan is obsessed with the sassy human woman that decided him for so long and captured his heart, and decided to simply take her back home. This, to the absolute horror of Ruckus, who also loves Delaney. As Delaney plots her escape, Trystan plots their future and Ruckus plots to save Delaney. Who will succeed? You'll have to read to find out!

    Addicting and just plain fun to read, Between Frost and Fury was just plain fun to read. It kept me on my toes and fully engaged. I love both Ruckus and Trystan, and I have no idea who I want to win Delaney's heart in the end! The characters in this series are so distinct and fun that I couldn't put the book down. I finished in one solid sitting, I loved it immensely, so clearly I recommend this book and this series. I give Between Frost and Fury the honest and excited rating of FIVE OUT OF FIVE STARS!!!

    Here is the deal: I liked this one. I really did. There is some solid - albeit occasionally predictable - political intrigue going on. Also, great world building. I really like Delaney.

    And, as previously established, I even like Trystan (in comparison with Ruckus.)

    I actually continued to like Trystan in this book. The author fleshes him out and even throws in some much needed POVs from him.

    I actually continued to like Trystan in this book. The author fleshes him out and even throws in some much needed POVs from him.

    The problem is....*drum roll please*

    It all feeds the love triangle. Honestly, YA authors, can we just call it quits on the love triangle for a little bit? Please?

    Because I would actually really like the relationship that developed in this book, except for the whole Ruckus thing. And honestly, can it even be considered a love triangle when Ruckus still has

    personality? It is like the author caught the vision for this romance between an earth girl and a murderous alien prince and then threw in another love interest for tension, but forgot to give the other love interest any character traits while she was at it.

    I really did enjoy this one. I'd read the third book (if I remember the first two well enough when it comes out.) It has more than a bit of a Hunger Games feel.
