Description

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 is hopeful and excited—with this much magic, the world can finally stand against threats like Angra. But Meira knows that 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 Jannuari—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 is woven 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.

Customer Reviews

Amazing

Again, with great politics, a new character who's just as boss as Meira if not more, and an epic plot with a twist. This book piles on suspense, and I now wonder if Meira can win without dying.

An excellent follow-up!

Received a copy from the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

ICE LIKE FIRE is an excellent follow-up to Sara Raasch’s debut, SNOW LIKE ASHES. We pick up about three months after the events of the last novel as Meira is coming to terms with her new role as Queen and attempting to rebuild her kingdom with the assistance of Cordell. Although it felt like a bit of a slow start, once Meira sets out on her quest, the pace picks up at a nice clip.

I appreciate the ways in which the author meticulously established and built the foundation for this new story. Raasch truly has a gift for laying out the pieces of the puzzle for the reader to work through alongside the protagonist. I was constantly kept guessing. This is a fantastic way to keep readers on the edge of their seats.

I noticed a few reviewers claimed that Meira’s behavior of fear and confusion were completely out of character, but I disagree. It’s important to keep in mind that this young woman just found out her entire life has been a lie—a person does not simply get over something like this in a matter of months. These characteristics are precisely what make Meira such a well rounded, relatable, and realistic protagonist.

All in all, a great read. There were some seriously awesome twists at the end that left me dying for more. I cannot wait to see how the trilogy ends!
