Today it’s my turn to be on the tour for Prisoner of Ice and Snow by Ruth Lauren. I can’t stress enough how exciting this YA book is. After the first few pages I knew it was a winner and a cracker of a new series.
Firstly here is a little bit about Prisoner of Ice and Snow.
Valor is under arrest for the attempted murder of the crown prince. Her parents are outcasts from the royal court, her sister is banished for theft of a national treasure, and now Valor has been sentenced to life imprisonment at Demidova, a prison built from stone and ice.
But that’s exactly where she wants to be. For her sister was sent there too, and Valor embarks on an epic plan to break her out from the inside.
No one has escaped from Demidova in over three hundred years, and if Valor is to succeed she will need all of her strength, courage and love. If the plan fails, she faces a chilling fate worse than any prison …
An unforgettable story of sisterhood, valour and rebellion, Prisoner of Ice and Snow will fire you up and melt your heart all at once. Perfect for fans of Katherine Rundell, Piers Torday and Cathryn Constable.
Prisoner of Ice and Snow is similar to Prison Break in that it involves genius ideas from the brave and determined Valor on how to break out of Demidova, an icy prison of hell. It’s full of action from the very first page and it just keeps coming. I read it in a couple of days but could have easily read it in one sitting.
The author has lots of tricks up her sleeve, Prisoner of Ice and Snow is the start of something big I’m sure. Cleverly written, strong characters, a freezing cold setting that will chill you to the bone, what more can you ask for?
I was willing Valor all the way through the book to get her sister out of prison. The relationship between Valour and her sister reminded me of the sisters in Frozen. The strong bond that no-one can get in between.
As I’ve said previously I have nothing but praise for this exciting series, and cannot wait to see what the author has up her sleeve for the next books!
I’ve decided to give Prisoner of Ice and Snow by Ruth Lauren 5 out of 5 stars ( I would have given it a 6 if there was 6 stars!)
