Following on from the adventures in Frostfire, Ice Kissed is the second instalment in the Kanin Chronicles by Amanda Hocking, set in the same fantastical world as her 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.
Her character-driven books, which feature trolls, hobgoblins and fairy-tale elements and keep the pages turning, have generated an excitement not felt in the industry since Stephenie Meyer or perhaps even J. K. Rowling

Drew me in and kept me hooked ... It has action, mystery and, thanks to a feisty heroine and brooding hero, there's a good deal of romantic tension
