Ice Kissed
(Kanin Chronicles #2)
Amanda Hocking 

First - The Blurb:

The second novel in the Kanin trilogy, from the international bestseller Amanda Hocking.

In this series, we return to the world of Hocking's million-copy bestselling Trylle trilogy...

Bryn Aven is still struggling with her burgeoning relationship with Ridley. She's also set on completing her mission to find the missing Skojare Queen. But when they do finally discover what happened, Bryn finds out that things are much more complicated than she'd originally thought.

And as she gets closer to the truth, Bryn is framed for the murder of the Kanin King himself. She ends up on the run, as home holds too few answers and no solutions.

Second - The Tease:

I went over to him, and without hesitation, without thinking, without worry, I kissed him, knowing he would kiss me back just as hungrily. And he did not disappoint. He wrapped his arms around me, pulling me to him, but I didn't feel close enough. I pushed him back until he hit the wall.

Ridley stopped kissing me long enough to smile crookedly as I started to undo the buttons of his shirt, but even that quick separation felt too long. Then his fingers were in my hair, and his lips were on my mouth, and I didn't know if I'd ever wanted anything as badly as I wanted him.

I have read many of Amanda's books, and I must say, she never disappoints. The fantasy worlds she creates are easy to picture as are the characters who are always interesting and diverse. Captivated by her original Trylle Trilogy, I was very keen to delve into this new series, which although related, is set some time in the future. 

In Frostfire... things progress a little slowly. In Ice Kissed... they move much faster. Filled with more intrigue, mystery, romance and action, I really enjoyed the second instalment and am looking forward to moving onto the third to see how it all ends for Bryn and Ridley.

My rating: 5 out of 5

  2. That's quite a tease, Marilyn. And this is YA?!? ;) I've had Hocking on my nook since the first of her Trylle series was released...I'm pretty sure for *free*! Of course, it's still buried in the depths of all the books on my nook. But I'm thinking I should unearth it, huh? I'm happy to know that she didn't disappoint you. I'll definitely move her up in the queue. :D

  3. That was intense and so good! I love the passion :)
