Hocking's latest will have no trouble keeping the rapt attention of thrill-seekers and romantics alike.” ―RT Bookreviews on The Kanin Chronicles
“Returning to the troll world of her Trylle trilogy, Hocking explores another tribe of trolls in this first book in the Kanin Chronicles. The novel's lingering questions and the author's knack for cliffhangers are reason enough to anticipate the next installment.” ―Publisher's Weekly on The Kanin Chronicles
“With a thrilling climax and a haunting resolution, Frostfire brings us back to the world of the Trylle with a bang. Fans of Hocking's previous titles won't want to miss it. Although the exposition initially bogged it down, the story soon took off, leading us to one of Hocking's best resolutions yet. I can't wait to see where Bryn's story takes us next!” ―The Teen Bookworm

This one left me wanting more and in desperate need of the third installment in this wonderful series. Due to the mild sex scene, I would recommend this one to teens ages 16 and older.
So we pick-up right were we left off, I mean literately it's just been one day since the end of Frostfire. Bryn is just a passionate as every about protecting the Kingdom, and because of this she is a little hard on herself. She works hard and is good at what she does but she sacrifices a personal life to do so. She believes that she can either have a life or have her career but she can't have both. It's funny how some people feel that, even at this day and age. However as time passes Bryn starts to realize just how strong her feelings for Ridley are, she also sees Kasper (her bf Tilda's boyfriend and her new partner on the case) and starts to realize that maybe she can have it all.
Kasper is part of the elite Hogdragen Guard, and as I stated before he is involved with Bryn's best friend Tilda. Kasper and Bryn are sent to the Skojare to help out after an incident occurs and windup involved in a mystery at the Skojare Palace. Through their time together at the Palace, Kasper and Bryn form a friendship. They work together well, and appreciate each other. They do the best that they can but things go totally awry. There is an attempted murder, someone being thrown in prison and total chaos ensues.
The royalty at the Palace thanks them but sends Kasper and Bryn back home and that is when the s*** hits the fan. Bryn figures out only part of the mystery and some totally unexpected events happen, right along with an totally unexpected ending. Ice Kissed was amazing and I cannot wait to read the third and final book in the Kanin Chronicles, Crystal Kingdom.
In short, the characters are flat and annoying, the plot is predictable (I guessed who the Main Bad Guy is since like, the second chapter of the first book), the "romance" is boring, and the Kanin way of doing things is pretty similar to the Trylle, so it comes off as same old, same old. Also Brynn is pretty hard to like. She's gruff and thick headed, and not a heroine I would necessarily admire.
If you, (like me) thought Trylle was really good, while some of her other novels have been pretty blah, and assume that because this series takes place in the same world it'll be the same caliber of writing, you assume incorrectly.
Amanda Hocking needs to get her stuff together.
