Goodreads Description:

Bryn Aven has always longed to be a part of the Kanin world.

Though she has no social status because she’s a half-breed, she refuses to give up on her dream of serving the kingdom she loves. It’s a dream that brings her to a whole new realm . . . the glittering palace of the Skojare.

The Skojare people need protection from the same brutal rival who’s been threatening the Kanin, and, being half Skojare herself, it’s a chance for Bryn to learn more about her heritage. Her boss Ridley Dresden is overseeing her mission and wants to help. He’s always been her most trusted friend—but as their undeniable attraction heats up, he becomes a distraction she can’t afford.

Brynn is about to discover that the Skojare world is full of secrets, and as she’s drawn in deeper and deeper, she doesn’t know who to trust. As she gets closer to Ridley, she realizes she may not even be able to trust her own heart.

Fallon's Review:

Thank you so much Amanda Hocking for providing me with a copy for review. This in know way effected this review.

Bryn and Ridley are back from their mission in Skojare. The Queen is still missing and both feel displeased with the lack of cooperation from the Skojare people. Bryn is determined to find out what happened to the Queen and this only increases more when the Queen reaches out to her telling her to find her. Of course Ridley and Bryn's releationship has never been a smooth one and Bryn messes up by telling the king that more happened in Skojare and it was not just Konstantin Black who was in the dungeon. Victor Dalig was the one who hurt her. This enrages Ridley. Bryn tries to explain but the damage is done.

Bryn and Ridley soon find themselves on another mission to locate the Skojare Queen. Their is tension in the air. Bryn keeps fighting her feelings for Ridley and it is only making things worse. She does not know how to give herself to the job completely if she has someone she loves. Soon they find the lake only whispered about and like a dream. The Queen has hid herself well and does not trust her court back home. The Skojare castle even though at time dingy on the inside is breathtaking.

The Queen seems to bond to Bryn and requests her to come to Skojare with her. If you thought the court was odd on the first mission things get weirder the second time Bryn returns. Konstantin contacts her and tells her to leave before she is killed. "Run. white rabbit."

Amanda Hocking did not disappoint with Ice Kissed. Sh brought up the steam in Ice Kissed that seemed to thaw even Bryn's cold appearance. I got to page 109 and was like OMG what. That was the point I knew I was not sleeping and had to finish this book. I loved every second and devoured it. I was happy that Ice Kissed did not seem to have as much of a cliffhanger ending. I am so excited to read Crystal Kingdom this fall. I have become a huge fan of Amanda Hocking.
