Ice like Fire is the sequel to the epic Snow Like Ashes book. The review to this book can be found here.
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
Oh my … I am lost for words. This sequel has been one of the most epic, devastatingly heartbreaking and delicious reads of 2015. May I just quickly take a moment now to thank the publishing house, Harper Collins for providing a early copy for me. Like this book has literally changed my views on fantasy all together. I don’t want to scare everyone entirely on it’s greatness, so I’ll sum it up in 5 simple reasons why Ice Like Fire should be your next read.
I’ll always fight for you. I’ll always keep you safe
There is still an us… There will always be an us
or when Meira said
I’ll play along, you arrogant pig. I’ll pretend to be an obedient little queen until I can crush you
I’d choose you if it wouldn’t unravel who I need to be
I’m not just me anymore. I’m a whole kingdom, and I can’t make mistakes.
Ice Like Fire was an addictive read, containing all the right ingredients producing an epic fantasy novel that will linger in your thoughts even after finishing the book. My rating for this book is illogical but Ice Like Fire has deserved each book rating. I have awarded Ice Like Fire with 7 out of 5 books. Thanks Sara for writing a novel that I have reread more times than I have fingers and toes. You are genius and I cannot wait to see what you have install for us in the last book… *cries* I can’t believe it’s happening. The trilogy is ending.
