Summary: 
It’s been three months since the Winterians were freed and Spring’s king, Angra, disappeared—thanks largely to the help of Cordell. Meira just wants her people to be safe. When Cordellan debt forces the Winterians to dig their mines for payment, they unearth something powerful and possibly dangerous: Primoria’s lost chasm of magic. Theron sees this find as an opportunity—with this much magic, the world can finally stand against threats like Angra. But Meira fears the danger the chasm poses—the last time the world had access to so much magic, it spawned the Decay. So when the king of Cordell orders the two on a mission across the kingdoms of Primoria to discover the chasm’s secrets, Meira plans to use the trip to garner support to keep the chasm shut and Winter safe—even if it means clashing with Theron. But can she do so without endangering the people she loves? Mather just wants to be free. The horrors inflicted on the Winterians hang fresh and raw in Januari—leaving Winter vulnerable to Cordell’s growing oppression. When Meira leaves to search for allies, he decides to take Winter’s security into his own hands. Can he rebuild his broken kingdom and protect them from new threats? As the web of power and deception weaves tighter, Theron fights for magic, Mather fights for freedom—and Meira starts to wonder if she should be fighting not just for Winter, but for the world

Overview 


Long story short? I am really disappointed in Ice Like Fire. I expected a lot more then what we got. It seemed repetitive and nerve grating. Of course I'll read the third book because I have hope left and the way Ice Like Fire ended off gives some promise of some awesome shit going down in book 3. 

Full Review Coming In: September

  1. I agree with you 100%! I actually wanted to DNF so many times. I thought the King of Summer was hilarious and it needed more of him. The last 140 pages felt so much more like the first book. Such a disappointment. I am interested in reading the last book though.

    1. I loved the Summer king. I wish things played out differently in many aspects. I am looking forward to the third book but I am also a little more guarded in what to expect.
