I grew up reading books like The Babysitter Club and The Boxcar Kids. Now I read Romance, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Dystopian and any mixture of these all depending on what my mood is. I love Stephen King, Michael Connolly, JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Jane Austen, JK Rowling, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs and many others.


Ice - Sarah Beth Durst I was pretty intrigued with the storyline for this. I actually enjoyed about the first half or so of the book, getting to learn the new world and a different kind of paranormal young adult novel. But, unfortunately, that feeling didn't last through the book.

About halfway I really struggled to keep reading. It felt too much tell and not enough show. The first half, to a point, felt good. When Cassie started her trek across the arctic is where I felt the story change to where I didn't like it so much anymore. It's almost as if the story hit a brick wall and continued the story crippled.

The ending seemed abrupt. If it had played out a bit more, if we got to see the resolve of the book, I think I could have rated it another star. There were a few questions I had at the end that I didn't get answers for.

Overall, it's not a terrible book, but I think it could have been so much more.
