Everyone in Vallen knows that ice wolves and scorch dragons are sworn enemies who live deeply separate lives. So when twelve-year-old orphan Anders takes one elemental form and his twin sister, Rayna, takes another, he wonders whether they are even related. Still, whether or not they’re family, Rayna is Anders’s only true friend.
This book was amazing!!! I loved it so much and cannot wait for the sequel!!! This is the first book by Amie Kaufman that I’ve read where she’s not co-authoring with someone. I loved the writing style, plot, and characters. I also loved how the most important relationship in this book was that of the twins.
Ms. Kaufman’s writing style was brilliant! I loved how talented Ms. Kaufman was and how she always wrote with hope. This is Ms. Kaufman’s first book that she hasn’t co-authored with anyone on and she did great. Her writing is so different from when she co-authors. I loved how well Ms. Kaufman described everything and how she wrote dialogue. Her writing is exquisite and I hope that she writes more books that are not co-authored. Ms. Kaufman’s style is very addictive and I can’t wait to read another book by her, co-authored or not.
The characters were perfect!!!! I loved Anders so so much!!! He was so sweet and pure and I loved him with all of my heart. Anders and Rayna had a great relationship and I was so happy to read a book without any romantic intent, whatsoever. There was a lot of love between siblings and I was all for that. I loved how sweet all of the characters were and can’t wait to read more about them. Lisabet was an amazing side character and she didn’t get enough credit for all the help that she gave to Anders.
The relationship between the twins was so sweet!!! It reminded me of the relationship I have with my sisters, except it was more peaceful. I loved how Rayna and Anders looked out for each other. It seemed like something that normal siblings/twins would do. I loved how Rayna and Anders planned. Their rules were very interesting and I would like to think that I would have made up something similar if I was on the streets with my siblings. Rayna and Anders were very different but they worked together well and I admired them for that. And, for own their moments of brilliance that only happened when the other twin was around.
The plot was amazing!!! If you were following my reading this book on Goodreads then you know what I am talking about. I was engrossed in this book from the first page when Rayna and Anders were talking about pickpocketing. The plot was very well written and Amie Kaufman is evidently a very talented author. This book also was able to divide the planning and action. But, for once, I think that there was a little bit more planning than action. All in all, I can’t wait for Ice Wolves #2.
This book was excellent and I can’t wait for the sequel!!! I highly recommend anything by Amie Kaufman. I got the summary from the Library of Congress. Remember to fill out my survey. You can find the link to it on my About page. Thanks for Reading!!! Have a Great Day!!! -Annalee and Buttons
