Game of Thrones meets Graceling in this thrilling fantasy, the heart-pounding sequel to New York Times bestseller Snow Like Ashes. This action-packed series is perfect for fans of An Ember in the Ashes and A Court of Thorns and Roses. 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. The last time the world had access to so much magic, it spawned the Decay. So when the king of Cordell orders Meira and Theron on a mission to discover the chasm's secrets, Meira plans on using 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 Jannuari--leaving Winter vulnerable to Cordell's growing oppression. When Meira leaves to search for allies, Mather decides to take Winter's security into his own hands. Can he rebuild his broken Kingdom and protect his people from new threats? As the web of power and deception is woven 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.… (mais)

Despite how much I loved the first book. I just couldn't get into this one. I don't know why. It might be the second book slump. Or maybe I just wasn't in a good place for this book at this time. I honestly don't know. I'll still continue on to the third book with hopes that the ending will be a better read. ( )

At long last, rebel fighter Meira has succeeded in regaining her country of Winter from the oppressive hold of Angra, the King of Spring. However, given the stranglehold her ally Cordellan King Noam has on the struggling country, it seems Meira - Queen Meira - has no choice but to watch her beloved kingdom fall again beneath another tyrant.

Overwhelmed with doubts as to her identity, wary of her magic, and all too uncertain of who to trust, Meira heads a desperate mission to find answers and allies in other kingdoms. While his Queen navigates the political territory, Mather finds his own purpose remaining amongst the commoners in Winter.

If it's been a while since you've read the first book, I highly recommend at least a brief refresher of the side characters. The supporting cast didn't seem quite up to par in Snow Like Ashes. They seemed more like convenient props than distinct personalities. Of course, part of this may be due to my initial confusion: "who's this again? *skims Ice Like Fire * oh right."

Meira's internal doubts were the main focus of the book, as her band wound its way across the continent. It just was not compelling. In a way, it brings to mind the first section of Mockingjay: a bit of moping, isolation, and weariness of personal relationships. However, as this is the second book, hopefully Meira will hold onto what conviction she finds for the final installment.

Interestingly, Mather and Theron flip roles in a way for this book, compared to the first. No, this is not a reference to the romantic tension. At first, we watched Mather slide from confident heir to lost soldier, stripped of his main identity in the midst of turmoil. Compared to his clear cut character, Theron was introduced as a warming presence, lovable for his conviction, intriguing due to his wavering political affiliations. Now, imagine this reversed. Theron becomes a reactive character, following the plot obediently. Oh, he definitely has his share of secrets and trouble, but overall his actions are reasonable. Explainable. On the other hand, Mather becomes the transformative personality. Alongside his homeland, the Once King must rebuild his confidence, rekindle a sense of purpose, and reconcile as best he can with his parents and political betters.

Final verdict: it's manageable, but hopefully the concluding book will be more like the first. ( )

This is another great tale and man did the Sumerians really get the raw end of the deal here. but it ended on such a great action packed scene. Though I our heroine thinks too much, she is still on Bad @ss on battle ground . . . Yes, I loved it like the first one and the third one I am sure to love as well
