    • I loved this book and can not wait until the third book releases City of Death I love the characters and how the book continues to try and capture the same people How the catch up to them and then some how loose them I also like how the keep trying and trying to catch up and are there together for each other In my opinion I liked the first book because it first introduced you to the characters and what is going to happen Because in the second book it seems that the characters change.



    • Laurence Yep pulled it off again, with another amazing book in the city trilogy keep it coming, I running out of good stuff to read.



    • Pretty good A little less cohesive than the previous book, but I really dig Laurence Yep s earnestness about mythology and arctic wildlife and everything, really Plus Bayang having to struggle against her star crossed parental feelings for Leech is hilarious She just wants to be his mom


    • Stuck in Canada Post forever seriously, this book took almost two months to get to me , City of Ice was one of those books I was dying to rip into I loved City of Fire and was dying to dig into of the adventure.Although filled with the same sweeping fantasy vistas, the same characters and the continuation of the same story, City of Ice wasn t as enjoyable to me as the first part City of Fire My main gripe was I didn t feel the same draw to his characters I did in book one Three of the 5 compani [...]


    • CITY OF ICE still has the creativity and fantastic world building of CITY OF FIRE, but suffers a little bit from mid trilogy malaise Scirye and her companions continue to struggle with the morality play of working together and deal with magical forces beyond their comprehension, and they continue to chase the villains that threaten the world as they know it Luckily, their adventure into the arctic offers thrilling new landscapes, new mythologies, and new friends to meet along the way.As fascinat [...]


    • The plot line was ok, but I didn t really see any developement in the events I mean, the entire book they were out in the ice and they didn t do much except meet Uncle and almost get eaten by that old hag So the plot line was flat I spent time than usual just trying to slog my way through this book Not sure if I m going to read the last book in the trilogy Some of the things that happen in this story just didn t make any sense or didn t have any relation to the mainplot event i mean, the dancer [...]


    • This second book in the trilogy was an improvement over the first It was smoother and easier to read, and it moved along steadily The characters are fully developed and three dimensional, and the story itself is likewise well developed and well crafted Enjoyable, and not a bad read at all.


    • This was a good sequel to City of Fire It is the further adventures of Scirye, Kles, Leech, Koko, Bayang, and some new characters They are continuing the quest to find Roland.


    • This was definitely better than the first book in the trilogy, but still not well written the plot is good, but how we get to the plot points not so great.
