Ice Like Fire | Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine in which we discuss our most anticipated upcoming releases. 

Title: Ice Like Fire (Snow Like Ashes #2)
Author: Sara Raasch
Published: October 13th 2015  by Balzer + Bray

Goodreads summary: It’s been three months since the Winterians were freed and Spring’s king, Angra, disappeared—thanks largely to the help of Cordell.

Meira just wants her people to be safe. When Cordellan debt forces the Winterians to dig their mines for payment, they unearth something powerful and possibly dangerous: Primoria’s lost chasm of magic. Theron sees this find as an opportunity—with this much magic, the world can finally stand against threats like Angra. But Meira fears the danger the chasm poses—the last time the world had access to so much magic, it spawned the Decay. So when the king of Cordell orders the two on a mission across the kingdoms of Primoria to discover the chasm’s secrets, Meira plans to use the trip to garner support to keep the chasm shut and Winter safe—even if it means clashing with Theron. But can she do so without endangering the people she loves?

Mather just wants to be free. The horrors inflicted on the Winterians hang fresh and raw in Januari—leaving Winter vulnerable to Cordell’s growing oppression. When Meira leaves to search for allies, he decides to take Winter’s security into his own hands. Can he rebuild his broken kingdom and protect them from new threats?

As the web of power and deception weaves tighter, Theron fights for magic, Mather fights for freedom—and Meira starts to wonder if she should be fighting not just for Winter, but for the world.


I hadn't heard a lot about Snow like Ashes, I was pleasently surprised when I loved it so much! I like how the author based the kingdoms upon seasons, I find it quite interesting. Even if there is a love triangle, I'm not too bothered about it yet, it actually made sense, even if I'm team Theron! Meira is such a strong character, all she ever wanted to do was for her kingdom. I'm really looking forward to see where this series is going, I'm sure it will be epic and I'll have a book hangover after this one!

Did you read the amazing book that is Snow like Ashes? What did you think of it? Are you excited for Ice like Fire? Which book(s) are you waiting for this Wednesday?


  1. I haven't read the first one but really really want to. I hope you enjoy this one as much if not more than the first one!

    My WOW:

  2. Snow Like Ashes was actually pretty hyped for a time! And yes, 99% of the fandom is on Team Theron, and I'm in the minority when I shout TEAM MATHER at the top of my lungs. Heh. ;) Still excited for this, though! Fabulous choice!

  3. The titles don't grab me....and neither do the covers, but the blurbs offer up some intriguing characters and plot lines, so thanks for sharing. Enjoy!
