The Ice Bride Reviews
I first read this as part of the Married. Wait! What? Anthology. Photojournalist Betha survives a plane crash in a deserted part of Canada and is rescued by twins Raynor and Grim. They take her back to their cabin where they live with their mother Freya and their older brother, Fenris. They are Jotnar or Ice Giants from the line of Odin and Thor, and they recognize her as their skoai (their bonded). This is a problem because she is human and the Elders will see her as a weakness and kill her. After an incredible afternoon with the twins, the Elders do show up, burn the house to the ground, injuring the guys, leave-taking Freya with them, and returning Betha to her old life. When she awakens in the hospital, she's told she was found in the plane's wreckage and that it was all a hallucination. It's not so easy for her to return to her old life with the memories of her husbands. And in the meantime, her husbands are training to take on the Elders and get Betha back. Ripley is an incredible author. She can move between contemporary and mythical better with ease. This is another brilliant example. The backstory, the world-building, the characters are all exceptional.
Betha crash lands and ends up rescued and married to the Jotnar brothers. I liked the mythology and the concept about souls reaching for each other. Freya (the guys mom) made me laugh. Proserpina always writes strong, independent female leads, and Betha is no exception. I would love to see more stories in this worldI voluntarily and honestly reviewed an ARC of this novella when it was in an anthology
SweetI discovered Ripley Prosperina when I read her first book in the Searchers series and I've been in live ever since. Her characters are just so likable and realistic, even the ones that turn into ice giants. The boys were unbelievably sweet and I really liked Bethas spunk. Also, their mom was just awesome. My only complaint was how short it was. I think it could have been a good bit longer and more fleshed out, but it wasn't a deal breaker because I enjoyed it as is too.
This is a short reverse harem tale set in the unique fantasy realm of the Jotnar or frost giants. I don't know these stories, but it is based in the rich Norse mythology and I loved seeing something new.Ripley Proserpina's heroines are always really strong women, which I just love.Fun read, totally recommend it and would read more in this setting.
I read this previously in re anthology Married! Wait! WhatBetha is a photo journalist, her plane crashes and she finds herself married to three ice giants, I found this story to be unsual and exciting and I loved this storyThis was such a great read I highly recommend
I was excited about this story. I've loved all of Ripley's books so far and I went into this one with the same excitement.But for some reason, I couldn't get into it.The beginning had me confused, but the further I went into it, the less I wanted to read.The writing was well-done and the characters seemed greatBut for whatever reason, it didn't catch my attention.Maybe in the future I can come back to it and appreciate it better.As for now, it wasn't for me.
