Publisher Comments:

From New York Times bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz and Michael Johnston comes this remarkable first book in a spellbinding new series about the dawn of a new kind of magic.

Welcome to New Vegas, a city once covered in bling, now blanketed in ice. Like much of the destroyed planet, the place knows only one temperature—freezing. But some things never change. The diamond in the ice desert is still a 24-hour hedonistic playground and nothing keeps the crowds away from the casino floors, never mind the rumors about sinister sorcery in its shadows.

 

At the heart of this city is Natasha Kestal, a young blackjack dealer looking for a way out. Like many, she's heard of a mythical land simply called “the Blue.” They say its a paradise, where the sun still shines and the waters are turquoise. More importantly, its a place where Nat wont be persecuted, even if her darkest secret comes to light.

 

But passage to the Blue is treacherous, if not impossible, and her only shot is to bet on a ragtag crew of mercenaries led by a cocky runner named Ryan Wesson to take her there. Danger and deceit await on every corner, even as Nat and Wes find themselves inexorably drawn to each other. But can true love survive the lies? Fiery hearts collide in this fantastic tale of the evil men do and the awesome power within us all.

 

“The mix of adventure and fantasy will have you addicted!”

—Seventeen.com

“A one-sitting read. The world-building in Frozen is absolutely addictive. You'll really feel like you're traveling through this frozen, post-apocalyptic country (with) the setting, the realistic characters and the fast pace.”

Romantic Times

 

“Fans of The Hunger Games will no doubt enjoy sinking their teeth into this exciting book.”

Synopsis:

Incarceron is a prison so vast that it contains not only cells, but also metal forests, dilapidated cities, and vast wilderness. Finn, a 17-year-old prisoner, has no memory of his childhood and is sure that he came from Outside Incarceron. And then Finn finds a crystal key that allows him to communicate with a girl who claims to live on the Outside.

Synopsis:

The powerful conclusion to Robin LaFever's New York Times bestselling His Fair Assassins trilogy.

Synopsis:

A supernatural coming of age novel—the first book in a dynamic and dramatic new series—about the shy Celia Balaustine and a mysterious group of misfits at her new high school, Suburban High.

Synopsis:

In the powerful conclusion to Robin LaFever's New York Times bestselling His Fair Assassins trilogy, Annith has watched her gifted sisters at the convent come and go, carrying out their dark dealings in the name of St. Mortain, patiently awaiting her own turn to serve Death. But her worst fears are realized when she discovers she is being groomed by the abbess as a Seeress, to be forever sequestered in the rock and stone womb of the convent. Feeling sorely betrayed, Annith decides to strike out on her own. She has spent her whole life training to be an assassin. Just because the convent has changed its mind, doesn’t mean she has.

 

Synopsis:

Enter the Graceling Realm and let it work its magic . . .

When Queen Bitterblue took the throne of Monsea, she was a child, and her advisers ran the kngdom for her. Now she is beginning to question their decisions, especially how they handle the legacy of her father Leck, who who ruled through his Grace—a special talent for mind-altering—and his taste for darkness and violence. Bitterblue needs to know Monseas past to lead it into the future, so she begins exploring the city sreets at night, disguised and alone. As she does, she meets two thieves, who hold a key to the truth of Leck's reign. And one of them, with a Grace that he hasn't yet identified, holds a key to her heart.

Bitterblue is unforgettable—a gateway to the Graceling Realm that braids together magic, memory, and romance.

This was a very original and imaginative story that was easy to get into from page one. Don;t be fooled however the deeper you get into the story, the "players" are not what they seem...

I'm sure everyone has watched a movie or read a book about people escaping prisons. In fact, that kind of plot is so overdone it has become a cliche. However, Catherine Fisher adds some spice to the old tale by introducing a prison that can think, talk and hurt people. And no one outside or inside the prison knows where it is at. Except the warden of Incarceron.

This novel has action and an intriguing plot. However, I found the multiple character perspective tedious and distracting in some parts. Also, while reading, I found myself more interested in Claudia, Jared and the Warden's escapades rather than Finn, Attia and Keiro's journey through Incarceron.

Overall, the novel started out well and progressed to a surprising ending. It could have been better but I think I will read the second book Sapphique.
