ICE SONG is a book full of interesting characters, intriguing plot and a fresh spin on a future world from debut author Kirsten Imani Kasai. With a broad stroke of her pen, she delivers a stirring story of experiments, environmental degradation, and more that will capture the readers’ imagination and take it to the stars.

ICE SONG introduces the reader to a world full of dangers and beauty. Sorykah Minuit is the only woman aboard the ice-drilling sub and she is harboring a secret, one that could get her killed. When her twins are abducted by a madman bent on experimenting with them, she races alongside Soryk, to save them before it is too late. Will her secret come out along the way? I was intrigued by the premise of this story and it turned out to be a really engrossing read. I loved the lyrical way this author introduces her characters to you and Sorykah is a unique individual in a world gone mad. I won’t give away too much but suffice to say, this story really grips you and the secondary characters keep the story flowing smoothly.

ICE SONG is unique in it’s’ premise and this author definitely keeps the tension on high as the reader navigates the twists and turns within the pages. From the first to the last page, this author kept my imagination in overdrive and I was sad to see it end. ICE SONG is a wonderful book to while the afternoon away and I look forward to reading more from this author in the future. If you are looking for a different take on a futuristic, then grab ICE SONG and get ready to blast off to another world.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
