In the majestic halls of a crystal palace lies a secret that could destroy an entire kingdom…
Bryn Aven refuses to give up on her dream of serving the kingdom she loves. It’s a dream that brings her to a whole new realm…and the glittering palace of the Skojare.
The Skojare people need protection from the same brutal enemy that’s been threatening the Kanin, and Bryn is there to help. Being half Skojare herself, it’s also a chance for her to learn more about her lost heritage. Her boss, Ridley Dresden, is overseeing her mission, but as their undeniable attraction heats up, their relationship is about to reach a whole new level—one neither of them is prepared for.
As they delve deeper into the Skojare world, they begin to unravel a long-hidden secret. The dark truth about her own beloved Kanin kingdom is about to come to light, and it will change her place in it forever…and threaten everyone she loves.
Every time I open a book by Amanda Hocking, I am pulled so deeply into the world and story that before I realized it I have finished the book.
In Ice Kissed, we return to the world of the Kanin. Bryn still feels there is more to the disappearance of the Skojare
On returning to Kanin Bryn has to tell the King what really happened which leaves the king with no choice but to declared war on Konstanin.
Bryn continues to blames herself but there is something that makes her then that Konstanin isn't the enemy.
Then there is her friendship with Ridley. It's clear from the start that Bryn feels something but is to scared to become emotional involved. As this could cast her everything she has dreamed and work so hard for.
Where in Frostfire, Bryn was capable, but still appeared to be unsure of her self. But as Ice Kissed progress we see her grow to become fierce, determined and confident.
I loved being transported to the watery Skojare kingdom, along with the flirtatious, and somewhat sleazy prince Kennet.
Everyone seem to have a secret agenda. From the guards to king. But it is a testament to Bryn's character, that she refused to give up, or compromise her character.
Then throughout the story you have Konstanin popping in and out. As if he is trying to protect Bryn. He seems to always be in the background.
Though ice kissed will leave you with more questions than answers. It will create a incredible third novel.
This is definitely a series to add to your to read pile this year.
