Ice on Fire: The Test of Our Lives Reviews
These books were just AWESOME. I can't wait for book 3. Seriously great read
3/9/17: So I read the first book of this series in 2010. I loved it. I remember absolutely nothing about it now other than that I loved it and that there was supposed to be a sequel that I waited and waited for and it never came. Today I was randomly meandering through my shelves and came across that book again, and thought I'd check to see if the sequel ever came out and yay! It did! So now I have to go back and re-read the first book (hopefully it holds up) so I can read it. :)
This such a great / fun read. I need to pick up the first book, and definitely look forward to the sequel. Excellent main and secondary characters. Loving the story.
Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book.Colm and Aidan have been together in this lifetime for two years. Their book of the previous lives has been a roaring success.Long dead mothers begin appearing in dreams, with a baby too.Colm and Aidan must travel to Vegas to find their destiny.This is book two, the sequel to The Rest of Our Lives. I strongly suggest you read that before this one. It’s not absolutely necessary to but I just suggest you do.I stand by what I said about Colm, in my review for the first book. I found him a weak narrator at points, more so here than the other book. He has a tendency to go off at a tangent, especially in the middle of a conversation. It was a little off putting.HOWEVER!I found this a much better read! It sort of creeps up on you when you aren’t looking, or when Colm is off on one. You don’t get the full picture of what’s going on, who the visions in the dreams are, all in one go. It slips and slides its way into focus. I loved that! I was plotting and planning ahead, some I got right, some not.And it’s not until THEY ( but not saying who) get to Vegas that it really comes together in a way I did not see coming at me. And I’m left hanging! Not quite a throw-your-kindle-at-the-wall ending, but very nearly. More a I-need-book-three-like-yesterday ending!And therein lies my problem. Because I don’t know if there is a book three or not! There should be, though. Because Colm and Aiden’s story is not yet done. They don’t have that happy ever after they have been chasing since the dawn of time. And they NEED it, they really do. I also want to know what part the others (again, not saying who!) play in them getting that happy ever after.So, please, Mr. Stone, book three???Even though it’s a weak first person, single POV, a much more engaging and interesting read than book one.4.5 stars.
3.5*The next part of Colm and Aidan's story. And if the first book was 'the past', this represents the 'now' - and I only hope there is a future as there are still lots of threads to continue and decisions to be made.Despite being the narrator, Colm felt almost absent at times, maybe because we were seeing events through his eyes rather than as a third party seeing all players.There are doubts, fireworks, more magic than you can shake a stick at, lots of Hank-isms, humour and motherly love.I think I enjoyed their past stories more, from book 1, but this was another engaging read.
