Luna Lovebooks says…

Likes: While The Fire Within was a great introductory book, Icefire is the perfect beginning to the meat of the series. Lucy makes her first dragon – a wishing dragon. David names him and so the dragon becomes his, and after making a bizarre wish, things get a little crazy. This novel is a quick moving story that never quits with the intensity of the story and interesting plot devices never waver. I like that we get a closer look at the dragons and their personalities. We also get introduced to a few new characters – Zanna and Aunty Gweneth – that are both quirky and scary respectively. The element that I loved the most about this novel though is the fact that it has so much to do with the Earth and how all things are connected.

Dislikes: While I understood the path this novel was taking, I can see where it would be confusing to some readers. David suddenly can communicate with dragons, a new love interest is thrust on to the scene, and there is visions/time travel/alternate dimensions that can muddle readers minds.

I may a little biased again in the rating of this novel, but I have to give it 5 snowflakes.
