This story, like a piece of cake, is still good even if it 's poorly made.

After tha book though, I elt like I wasted my time.

rated it

It 's ard for me to articulate what went wrong, but at the same time, what worked, and how that balance had me feeling like his book deserved three stars, as opposed to two stars or four stars.

I eel like there was n't a ton of specific things that I did n't like in tha essay, but at the same time, there were n't a lot of hings that stood out to me as amazing.In this book, Bryn and Ridley come back from Skojare with no answers, and no queen Linnea.

Bryn wants to complete her mission and serve her kingdom as a Hogdragen, but she 's slowly realizing that she has no idea what she expect, or who she could trust.

Tha memoir is bit low, in my opinion, and there are not many questions that still have yet to be answered.

I was planning on reading the hird book no matter what, o I hope the answers to my questions are in Crystal Kingdom.

A ook relie on finding Queen Linnea, and actuall found, protecting her in Storvatten.

But it took he hole nove to work up to that ending!

She spends the entir book trying to redeem herself, after Konstantin Black and Viktor Dalig escaped while she was bleeding in a dungeon ( at the nd of Frostfire).

But as his book moves on, Bryn learn that maybe she does n't ant to serve and protect the kingdom.

Bryn 's inner conflict is a very well-developed part of tha ook, and I like that.We really get th eel for the Skojare, and Storvatten.

I worried that, in Frostfire, not all the uestions that I had throughout the book could be answered.

In Frostfire, it felt like Konstantin Black took issue with the changeling system, and liked to eliminate it.

But in series, it 's asy to tel that Bryn and the others are trolls.

I reall like you ould take about 75% of the content in a book out, and divide the remaining 25% of this book between Frostfire and Crystal Kingdom, and mayb b a duology.

I hate it when sequel/second novels are disappointing like that! Mostly, I say I just expected more, and this book/Hocking came up short.

But hopefully Crystal Kingdom will prove to be a stunning conclusion! Would I Recommend It: I 'd conside this one if you enjoyed Frostfire and want to continue with th series.

Ice Kissed delivers this; thank god I carried on with series! Frostfire ended with Bryn discovering that the two most dangerous traitors of Kanin are working together but with still no leads on what their end goal is, the kingdom must plan for war.

It was nice to ave a more in depth look Skojare with it 's magical palace immersed in water and the magic behind the kingdom.I definitely liked Bryn a lot more in this, although I like her strong mind when it ame to her career, I don ’ t know she realize how much of her life she ould ave to bring up.

Sadly this second nove was n't as ood as the last one, but I loved it a lot nevertheles.

I was dying with the waitin, especially after Bryn made some foolis decision ( view spoiler) [ ( like not telling him things or have sex and no talk) ( hide spoiler) ] .I wanted to strangle them, but at the same time I was crazy fangirling.THE FEELS.

I hope Konstantin 'll lift my feet off the ground like Loki did, so I can choose with my eyes closed; DThe only thing I did n't like much was the central part of he ook, with Bryn and Kasper in the Skojare kingdom.

And I do n't worry if it 's anothe ba thing or not, because I wen to love him, ( view spoiler) [ and now ... Kasper ç___________çPoor Tilda, there 's othing worse ...

I had oped that this one might be wors than last, but nfortunately thi was certainl the case.I think Bryn possibly annoyed me even more in tha essay.

S only ere her arguments childish and painful to even listen to, her constant ‘ it wasn ’ t my fault; it was your fault ’ just got really old.

- Even he ca n't stand her! The ending then left us with a cliff-hanger, and I hope that ( view spoiler) [ Konstantin just hurries up and kills Bryn and saves us from any more of her incessant whining!

I was worried that the trolls here looked and acted like humans, and I ated both of what Bryn did at the beginnin of book despite her strong and amazing drive and personality.

You eally kno the tension in the atmosphere as our heroine want to giv a ense of what 's happening, as every where she goe, there are mysteries, secrets, and therefore more deadends; the suspense and discoveries are so well-placed and so subtle that I did n't think like I was often reading but that I ha also wantin to olve he puzzle right alongside her.Pretty much me the entir time:

" I 'm retty confiden this person is the ulprit. "

my deducing skills right now is pretty much non-existent.But seriously, the plot in Ice Kissed> Frostfire.

No, tension happened and then she acted accordingly.

I feel more kickass heroines like that.I do wish there were more Ridley awesomeness, though.

I s like him as th villai and love interest.

So off they go to find Queen Linnea, and that eventually leads Brynn right back to the Skojare palace.

We get answers as to where Linnea is and why she disappeared and who was behind it, although as I said already it does n't get much sense; the romantic aspect of the plot advances somewhat, however the love scene was something close to what you wil find in a NA book and did n't belong in a YA ook; Brynn grows a bit as a person and is n't a selfish jerk, but everything pertaining to the main plot line was pretty much already told to us in book one.

It was obvious by things Konstantin Black had said to Brynn in book one, how things migh end up in his ook.
