A Breath of Frost (The Lovegrove Legacy #1) by Alyxandra Harvey

A Breath of Frost (The Lovegrove Legacy, #1)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
In 1814, three cousins—Gretchen, Emma, and Penelope—discover their family lineage of witchcraft when a binding spell is broken, allowing their individual magical powers to manifest. Now, beyond the manicured gardens and ballrooms of Regency London, an alluring underworld available only to those with power is revealed to the cousins. By claiming their power, the three cousins have accidentally opened the gates to the underworld.

Now ghouls, hellhounds—and most terrifying of all, the spirits of dark witches known as the Greymalkin Sisters—are hunting and killing young debutante witches for their powers. And, somehow, Emma is connected to the murders…because she keeps finding the bodies.

Can the cousins seal the gates before another witch is killed…or even worse, before their new gifts are stripped away?

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

A Breath of Frost (The Lovegrove Legacy, #1)(Source: I own a copy of this book.)
This was an interesting story about witchcraft, but the pace was a little slow.

I liked the characters in this book, Emma wasn’t afraid to do things that society would frown on, and Cormac was a bit of a bad boy, and a total flirt.

The storyline in this was good, although I did find the pace a little slow. It seemed to take a long time to get through this one, and even though the story was good, it dragged a bit. I liked the witchcraft storyline, and I l didn’t guess who the murderer was!
There was a little bit of romance, but it didn’t detract from the main storyline. I would have liked the romance to be a little more developed really, because I really liked Cormac.

The ending was good, and I’m looking forward to reading the second book in the series.
7 out of 10.
