Ice Kissed by Amanda Hocking
Imagine all you thought you knew about yourself and the world you lived in was not as they seemed. Bryn wants nothing more than to fit in and be the warrior/guard her heart and skills say she is, but being a half-breed, working twice as hard as everyone else may not be enough. Bryn may also be in danger from unknown corners and she is unsure of who can be trusted. Top that off with her emotional tug-of-war going on in her heart and her world is in constant turmoil. Is she to be with Ridley or do their dreams and actions clash too much? Will Bryn find the answers to her questions or will she only find heartache and more pain?
Amanda Hocking has created another world, filled it with characters who are unique, although sometimes too easily read, so I thought, until a few surprises kind of jumped out at me! Always good with the action scenes, Ms. Hocking’s tension build up and vivid descriptions are often lifelike, making her fantasy come alive. Ice Kissed has all the signature markings of Amanda Hocking, but I was left with so many half answers and new questions, I was surprised when I reached the end of this journey. That said, I do believe book three will make up for them all!
I received an ARC edition from St. Martin's Griffin in exchange for my honest review.
