The Ice Queen, Paperback
4.5 out of 5 (2 ratings)

Description

Alice Hoffman is at her electrifying best in this fairy tale for grown-ups.

The story begins with a little girl who makes a wish one snowy night and ruins her life.

She grows up with a splinter of ice in her heart until one day, standing by her kitchen window, she is struck by lightning.

Instead of killing her, this cataclysmic event sparks off a new beginning.

She seeks out Lazarus Jones, a fellow lightning survivor.

He is her opposite, a burning man whose breath can boil water and whose touch scorches.

As an obsessive love affair begins between them, both are forced to hide their most dangerous secrets - what turned one to ice and the other to fire.

The Ice Queen is a haunting story of passion, loss, second chances and the secrets that come to define us, if we're not careful.

Hoffman is one of my favourite authors and this tale of fire and ice doesn't disappoint. The heroine is struck by lightening and her heart is frozen; she meets a man also lightening-struck who can burn things with his bare hands, and they embark upon a passionate but tragic affair.
