The paperback cover is stunning! Hints of the story—frozen roses, a special mirror—frame a gorgeous ballet performer with Tower Bridge, the most iconic bridge in London, as the backdrop. All of the elements came together beautifully.
I highly recommend Ice and Embers to anyone who likes fairy tales. It's a great story for those who enjoy a bit of paranormal and steampunk with their romance, and especially for those who like stories set in the Victorian era.
Elysa & Kai...sigh...Kai....I loved this world and I adored both characters. I loved the love story and the twist at the end. I wish it had more of the "snow queen" but over all I just loved everything about this book. I wanted to be in this world for a while. Elysa is an actress and the Thames freezes which bring the 1814 London Frost Fair. Elysa performs at the Ice House Theatre, she is being courted by a gentleman that she is head over heals in love with but her BFF Kai that lives on the other side of her window isn't so sure about this gentleman since he wants to keep the relationship a secret. Kai is protective of Elysa but he allows her to do what she wants however you can tell he is in love with her. The story is loosely based on the Snow Queen fairytale. It's like you can sense the story underneath the wonderful story that she has created. I honesty hated when this book ended.
Overall, I thought this was an amazing story, I loved all the characters and the twist that I didn't see coming at all. I can't recommend this book enough. Between this book and her Curiouser and Curiouser book, I am loving her stories, I can't wait to read more from her.
I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes reworked fairytales - an increasingly common trend at the moment (though this is the first Ice Queen I've seen) - as its great fun to keep an eye open to spot elements of the original story's theme in this. It's also a great story for anyone who likes those set in Victorian times, paranormal elements, those with romance elements without being too slushy, and anyone looking for a standalone book that's a bit different.
NB I received a complimentary copy of this book, but I always give an HONEST review based wholly on my own opinions
The river Thames had frozen and London is celebrating the infrequent occurrence by hosting an event on the frozen river. Elyse is an actress performing on the ice. Kai is her best friend and a doctor. But things begin to happen that separate them. Elyse is being courted by a titled gentleman and Kai is ensnared by a captain whose boat is frozen in the river. Although thrilled by her new beau, Elyse still longs to see Kai. Will she find him or will he sail away when the Thames thaws?
A beautifully written story. Ice and Embers is a magical reimagining of The Snow Queen.
