Ice Kissed by Amanda Hocking

The sequel to Frostfire in the Kanin Chronicles trilogy...
So it finally came out in May, after the very disappointing ending of the first book - Frostfire. But this time it came back with a slightly big bang. Not only do we get to the bottom of the mysterious disappearance of Queen Linnea. But also that there is something much more going on, which corruption fills the air with a metal taste.
The plot itself is largely more focused compared to the latter first book, which really only took us in the direction in terms of background and context. There is a lot more heated passion between a few characters, as well as some expected deaths towards the end.
Luckily with this trilogy, all of the three books take place of being published within 2015. Therefore, it is not a long wait until we all find out how Bryn would end up.
Towards the end of the book, I must admit that I found it to become very addictive. As there was a lot of tension and action which took place. This is probably what I look forward mostly towards the third instalment which is due to be published in August, next month.
It was a good dramatic improvement from the first book, looking more into the backgrounds of certain characters and whether they would have any involvement with the ongoing mystery between certain troll tribes.
The protagonist, Bryn Aven I still find to be very much a replacement for Wendy Everly, of the Switched Trilogy, which if I was to be honest, I couldn't really seem to relate to. As the only big differences were that she is a tracker and not a part of the royal family, as well has blonde hair.

Overall Rating: ***
