Title: Ice Like Fire
   Author: Sara Raasch
   Format: Hardcover
   Release Date: October 13th, 2015

     It’s been three months since the Winterians were freed and Spring’s king, Angra, disappeared—thanks largely to the help of Cordell.

     Meira just wants her people to be safe. When Cordellan debt forces the Winterians to dig their mines for payment, they unearth something powerful and possibly dangerous: Primoria’s lost chasm of magic. Theron sees this find as an opportunity—with this much magic, the world can finally stand against threats like Angra. But Meira fears the danger the chasm poses—the last time the world had access to so much magic, it spawned the Decay. So when the king of Cordell orders the two on a mission across the kingdoms of Primoria to discover the chasm’s secrets, Meira plans to use the trip to garner support to keep the chasm shut and Winter safe—even if it means clashing with Theron. But can she do so without endangering the people she loves?

     Mather just wants to be free. The horrors inflicted on the Winterians hang fresh and raw in Januari—leaving Winter vulnerable to Cordell’s growing oppression. When Meira leaves to search for allies, he decides to take Winter’s security into his own hands. Can he rebuild his broken kingdom and protect them from new threats?

     As the web of power and deception weaves tighter, Theron fights for magic, Mather fights for freedom—and Meira starts to wonder if she should be fighting not just for Winter, but for the world.

My Stance:

     Ice Like Fire is on nearly everyone's watch list, if it's not it should be. I need to read the first book soon, and while it's on my list I am not sure where it's going to happen. For a book of faeries and a world of magic there probably won't be a better book this year. So this is just a no-brainer, and an immediate purchase.

     So onto this book, and having not read the first, maybe there's a bit spoiled, but the overall plot I don't know yet, so maybe. There is just so much going on in this synopsis, in fact there is almost too much. I wonder if it almost requires you to read the first book? if so that's a good thing, I love books that carry over and make the reader want to go onto the next book immediately. I need a good series to binge read again. So I am not going to even try to touch the synopsis. I will say though that it sounds good, I don't understand much of it, but that's fine, just makes me want to read the first book sooner.
