Fire & Ice
Fire & Ice - Patty Jansen I received a free kindle copy of Fire & Ice (Icefire Trilogy) by Patty Jansen in an Amazon promotion for review. I gave it four stars because it kept my attention & I wanted to learn what would happen next.

It was a world where 'Imperfects' were left on ice floes to be eaten by polar bears. They were able to see the icefire. Tandor, the grandson of a former king has been saving them to help form a revolution against the current regime.

Icefire evidently acts like high dosage radiation since it singes the skin & can cause death.

I hoped that the character Carro would be more ethical but considering his background with the Eagle Knights & his chronic rapes by higher ranking Knights did enough damage to tip him into mental illness. He also betrays his friend Isandor who had managed to become an Eagle Knight in spite of the imperfection of missing a lower leg which he disguised with icefire.

The Servitors were created by the removal of their hearts & they became blue (or invisible) automatons bound to do the will of who held their hearts.

Overall it was an interesting storyline & it ended with a cliffhanger. I will likely read Icefire Trilogy #2 in spite of several typos or grammatical errors.

Watchers Web (Return of the Arghyrians, #1) by Patty Jansen
Watcher's Web: Return of the Aghyrians - Patty Jansen

Kindle freebie introducing a new series by Patty Jansen (I've read but not reviewed some of her books before, note to self, fix that, and I enjoy her writing.)

 

Jessica has a weird ability, not entirely under her control, that has more than once gotten her in serious trouble. When the small plane she is flying on crashes although she survives fairly unscathed, two things seem apparent: It was her fault somehow, and ... this is not the Australian outback bush they were flying over before the crash. And who, exactly, is this mysterious man she keeps flashing to in visions?

 

Jessica is right with the we're not in Australia anymore, Toto, but that's only the beginning.

 

It's hard to discuss this one without spoiling it royally, but it's a pretty good read. Nominally space opera/sci-fi it reads almost more like a PNR. The writing is top notch, but I had a few issues with the plot, so I'm not sure I'll continue this series. Well, I wasn't sure, but the second book apparently takes a different direction from this one, which sounds very interesting (following the "is he the bad guy or the good guy" from this book, along with a new female protagonist).

 

And for some reason, the cons list below ended up quite long, which masks the fact I really did enjoy the book, and it was a borderline 4 star.
