    1. I learned by reading this book that "psychological thriller" means "a book where nothing happens". There are pages and pages and pages where the only action is the main character walking down a snowy lane. The text is all vague imagery of light and snow and heat and cold and endless obsessions over the character's missing brother. There is certainly some suspense - enough to keep me going up to the bitter end, even, but by then I was skimming and speed reading just to see if the story improved b [...]


    2. I have questions. Many questions.That's the thing - this book leaves things pretty open-ended, and the reveal you do get doesn't come until the very end.The main character was a little hard to relate to throughout. I didn't really understand why she just kept lying to everybody and keeping secrets that didn't seem to matter much and would only pull her into more trouble. I felt like there was some unnecessary drama as well, especially on her part.The writing was pretty good; it definitely gave m [...]


    3. The first page sucked me right in. Dusty, sitting alone in her house, far from any neighbors, receives a phone call from a mysterious boy who has just overdosed on pills and wants to hear a comforting voice as he slips into death. As they talk, the boy lets slip details that convince Dusty he knows what happened to her brother, Josh, who disappeared two years ago. In a panic, Dusty races out into a snow storm to find the boy and a clue to finding Josh.Bowler creates a taut, atmospheric thriller [...]


    4. Originally posted here.“I’m dying,” said the voice.This first sentence of Tim Bowler’s Frozen Fire will, right away, suck the reader in. It’s sets the ethereal and creepy atmosphere the book possess from start to end.It was the beginning of the mysterious phone call Dusty received at the night of the New Year. The caller, a boy, seems to know more than what he confess — information about his missing brother or to be more accurate, information only his missing brother knows. So Dusty, [...]


    5. I was truly excited to read this book at first because the beginning was so good. As the book went on I was looking for answers but I only became more confused. I wanted for it to have a good ending, but it didn't come!! I could not believe the ending because it answered nothing and I was so mad. I wasted my time for nothing. A few things I did not understand (and by few I mean a lot):1. Why does he not have any genitals?2. Why does he have those powers?3. Why was he following Angelica around?4. [...]


    6. As I read other reviews, many people didn't like this book because they didn't "understand" it and they couldn't decipher every little thing that Bowler formed into Frozen Fire. I believe that is what made this book amazing. In most books the plot it easily distributed and the end settles our heart with either understanding sadness or happiness. But not this book, oh no. Frozen Fire keeps the possibilities open so anything we can think, say, or come up with could be the reason onto why the boy e [...]


    7. ' "I'm dying," said the voice. Dusty clutched the phone. She had no idea who this was.'Well, with a hook like that who wouldn't want to keep reading? I certainly did, so much so that I bought the bookd now I wish I could give it back.The main premise is a very intriguing one. A teenaged girl named Dusty recieves a midnight phone call from a strange boy who seems to know intimate details about her, most importantly the fact that her brother disappeared two years ago. The setting of rural England [...]


    8. Alright, here goes nothing."I'm dying," a voice tells Dusty. Who is he and how has he gotten her cell number? Dusty wants no part of this strange boy . . . until he begins saying things that only someone who knows her intimately could say things that lead her to think he knows the whereabouts of her brother, who disappeared over a year ago.What you should do:1. Don't tell him your real name.2. Don't admit that he has information you want.3. Don't go outside looking for him.4. Call the police pro [...]


    9. Frozen Fire held just enough mystery that I wanted to read more and just a little scary that I was hesitant to. In a sense, I would call it a psych thriller and you have to be wary of these. Because sometimes they aren't good. They can be full of pages upon pages of words and still say nothing of value. Because psychs can babble if they're not good. But I felt like this one, IMO, did just enough right to keep me reading so that I could find out if Dusty would save the boy on the other end of pho [...]


    10. Pese a las criticas irregulares (sin un final definido, sin solucionar ni dar información respecto a ciertos hechos sustanciales, de y para, la trama), quería leerlo; SON DE AQUELLAS NOVELAS QUE DESPIERTAN UNA CURIOSIDAD ENGAÑOSA POR PARTE DEL FUTURO LECTOR. Y CUAL FUE MI DECEPCIÓN, POR QUÉ SIN TENER UNAS GRANDES EXPECTATIVAS, ME DEFRAUDÓ MÁS DE LO PENSADO. Y ES QUE ‘ÚLTIMA LLAMADA’, PARTIENDO DE UN INICIO Y TRAMA SEMI INTERESANTE, SE VA DESINFLANDO POR MOMENTOS, HASTA LLEGAR AL MÁS [...]


    11. In the novel Frozen Fire by Tim Bowler, Dusty is a fifteen-year-old girl living in the United Kingdom. Living with her overprotective dad, Dusty learns to stand up for herself and to not take anything from anyone. She learned all of this when her older brother, Josh, walked out two years earlier, and her “mum” had a nervous breakdown and walked out six months after. This book is a great read, and it has action, mystery, and a teenager’s struggle to stay sane.What I liked most about this bo [...]


    12. I picked this book up on a whim because the cover was gorgeous and intriguing and the summary had me hooked. Just as it says, so the story begins, and Dusty starts speaking to a strange boy who seems to know too much about her and claims he thought of a random phone number and it happened to connect him to her. This boy is definitely the heart and most interesting part of the story. At times the writing and plot grew bland while I waited for more news of him to surface. Oftentimes instead of the [...]


    13. I found this a really intruiging book. From the very first line of "I'm dying," it sucked you in. I liked that it was a kind of double mystery plot. There was the mysterious boy who somehow knew the protaganist, Dusty's phone number, as well as her thoughts, but there was also her missing brother Josh. As the mystery around this strange boy deepens, the plot of her brother's disappearence slowly begins to deepen to. It is definitely a book where things have to get a lot more complicated before t [...]


    14. This book was great. i was hooked in the moment i read the first line, which i always do when searching for new books."I'm dying," said the voice.i mean, how can anyone not be intrigued by that stonker of a first line?the rest of the book was thought-provoking, and i found myself spellbound in the troubled world of Dusty, Josh, and the Boy, who was a fascination all by himself. Tim Bowler was great at describing the world encircling Dusty and her friends, and i have never read snow being describ [...]


    15. Impulse buy gone bad. I was intrigued to see what a Carnegie Medal winner could do with a psychological thriller geared for a YA audience. Sadly, not much.The story dragged . . . and dragged . . . and dragged. Besides a few redundant chase scenes through the woods (I kept asking myself, haven't I read this part already? Without my Curious George bookmark, I'd have been desperately lost), and lots of agonizing internal debate on the part of the protagonist Dusty, not much happened. And yet, despi [...]


    16. A clever premise that never really gets off the ground. Alone at home one night, Dusty gets a call from a boy she doesn't know who tells her he's dying and seems to know a lot about her. Rumors and sightings of the boy cause mass hysteria over town, as everyone seems to think he's a rapist who escaped from a few towns over. Dusty, however, thinks the boy knows something about her brother Josh, who disappeared two years ago.I wanted to like this one, but I just couldn't get myself to care about t [...]


    17. I admit that from the very start this book gets you hooked. I don't think that I've ever read a book that literally caught me from the first line. After a certain point though, all the mystery and secrecy just gets more confusing. Not to mention that not much information is given to you in the first place. I don't know how many scene descriptions of snow and fog and cold I had to read before something actually happened. I couldn't take it anymore. I was getting this horrible feeling that things [...]


    18. I really liked that this book was a page turner, but the ending was very abrupt. I mean what kind of book ends with someone being on a stretcher and going back home. I felt bad for Dusty because she seemed to have idolized Josh and he turned out to be a rapist who committed suicide.As for the "boy" I expected him to give Dusty more answers instead of letting her down, I also felt bad that no one believed that the boy was innocent. I especially liked the theme of innocence and justice. Personally [...]


    19. I so loved this book!!! If you haven't read it you should add it to your shelf. This is the most awesomeness book with a mystery that must be lived with. To bad no one will ever know who the ghostly boy is who can do all these amazing stuff. But atleast Dusty's family knows what happened to her brother, Josh, at the end. Sad though but good ending never, saw it coming. I am just happy that everything has been cleared up, even though Dusty is living with a mystery that will never be solved.or wil [...]


    20. This book started out like Wolf Rider. A kid gets a call and someone totally unknown is at the end, threatening lives, whether it be someone or themselves. It appeared very interesting to me, until the boy on the other end could do a whole bunch of unexplainable stuff. Then there's this Josh kid who disappeared a long time ago and the main character goes looking for him since the boy on the other end can feel Josh. I didn't even understand the end. These two plots just didn't mix.


    21. This book was really creepy for the first three-quarters, and i thought the author did a really good job of maintaining suspense and keeping me engaged--until the last quarter, when the book just *dragged*, became repetitive, the protaganist's motivation was confusing, and the central conflict of the novel seemed completely overworked. I'm still not quite sure what happened in the end. Two point five stars for the convoluted ending.


    22. Nope. This book was lacking on so many levels. I really want the time back in which I was hoping somethingsomething would happen.


    23. I am not one to be scared off easily by a book or a movie. But this one gave me the creeps. Simple yet elegantly written!


    24. It was dark outside. Cobweb knew this even without drawing back the curtains. It was a strange, eerie darkness which seemed to envelop her as she sat on her bed reading Frozen Fire by Tim Bowler.Her room was unusually warm for this time of year. She could hear the snow falling outside, stroking at the window, conflicting with the heat of her room. It was as if the room was a new world, a different world. It was a world separate from the frozen one that loomed outside. After glancing quickly at t [...]


    25. It's a late winter night when Dusty gets a phone call. She knows she can't ignore it so as she picks up the phone the voice on the other end says, "I'm Dying." Dusty wants nothing to do with this boy but it seems as if he knows everything about her brothers dissapearence. How did he know all this personal details about her life and her brother? Dusty was determined to find out. As she goes on the search for the strange boy she starts to learn more and more about him. Stories have been going arou [...]


    26. I recently finished reading the book Frozen Fire by Tim Bowler. This book was a young adult novel and was 272 pages long. This book was about a girl named Dusty, and the questions she has about her missing brother Josh. Her family is broken, her mom walked out on her family when her older brother Josh went missing, leaving Dusty to live with her dad. After begging her dad to finally go on a date, she has the house to herself, until a mysterious phone call from a guy she doesn't even know comes a [...]


    27. In the past I tried reading this book, but never got passed the second or maybe third chapter. However this morning I woke up, made my self a cup of tea and ended up finishing the book in one sitting. It starts off with a girl named Dusty, receiving a phone call from a mysterious boy. The boy tells her he is dying because he over dosed, in order to kill himself. Dusty being frightened asks why he called and he tells her he just wanted someone to talk to while he slippedaway. The boy tells her a [...]


    28. Dusty doesn’t know anything about the boy who mysteriously calls her one night as he attempts to commit suicide, then startles her with all the personal things he knows about her and her life—like the disappearance of her brother, Josh. All she knows that there is something terribly alluring yet dangerous about him at the same time. Her curiosity drags her into an out-of-this-world intriguing mystery that makes her enemies and drives her to her tomboyish limits.For there really ARE a lot of [...]


    29. For Dusty it started with with a phone call from a mysterious boy.At first Dusty wants nothing to do with this strange boy who has been seen lurking around Raven's Fell; but when the boy tells her something about her brother Josh, whose been missing for two years, Dusty is determined to get to the bottom of this-despite the danger of the revengeful "ponytail" man.A physiological thriller, huh? was my first thought when I saw this at the library. I've never read one before, so I decided to try it [...]


    30. It's so beautiful! The cover really suits the story well! It'sSo Dark. And the reason why I got my hands on this book is that, when I flipped it open and to read the very 1st page-it automatically got me hooked! It was scary, that it makes me let out a quite scream, which kinda freaks the people around me when I do that. I kept on gasping as I make my way through different chapters that I can't help but to close the book when I feel like it was way too much for me to handle. But to summed it all [...]
