Green’s White World trilogy, which starts with Iced, has a truly kick-butt and take-names heroine. Thirteen is an ex-slave who can dish it out when it comes to hand-to-hand combat, acrobatics, tenacity, surviving ice-age cold, and ice sailing. People skills, not so much. Her life aboard an ice-sailing boat is immersive, and the details build the world more completely without overpowering the story.
There is a lot of action in this book and you'll definitely want to read it if you've read the other two books. I found this book a bit darker, and I wish a certain character's motivations and relationship could have been fleshed out just a bit more. I know it was done to be mysterious, but it left me feeling a bit dense, as if I were missing something in the subtext. That said, I'm still very glad I finished the trilogy. I hope there are more stories that will be written in this world.
When we last left Thirteen, Cord, and little Miyu, they had liberated a slavers' ship and were heading for Helado, the city-on-a-volcanic-island where Thirteen hoped to find and rescue her sister at last. Hot on their heels was Helado's navy, headed by Prince Céfiro, who has sworn to win his father's favor by bringing in the Ghost -- the pirate who preys on Helado's most profitable industry by attacking slaving ships and setting the slaves free.
Cord has no interest in going to Helado, for reasons he is trying to keep secret. But he knows where Thirteen's sister is, and Thirteen has demanded that he take her to her. So when the navy catches up to them at last, he does the one thing he knows will reunite the sisters.
To tell you what he does would be a major spoiler. Suffice it to say that Green provides her readers with more than our fair share of twists and turns. Thirteen, Cord, and Miyu are affecting and engaging characters, and I couldn't stop reading until I reached the final page. If you're a fan of dystopian sci-fi, I highly recommend the entire Chronicles of White World series.
I love Thirteen, Cord and Miyu, they are wonderful characters in a fantastic story with plenty of plot twists and turns. I would recommend this book to everyone, hurry out and buy it!
