Title: Fire & Ice
Author: Michele Barrow-Belisle
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy Romance
Adventure wasn’t something Lorelei Alundra was interested in. Gifted with two other-worldly talents for singing and healing, she’s always shied away from her gifts and the spotlight, preferring quiet anonymity, over attention and fame. But when she meets the enigmatic Adrius, with his dark and dangerous mystique and eyes that peer into her soul, her uneventful life becomes irrevocably altered.
Adrius turns up in every one of her classes and knows more about her than any newcomer should. Including the condition of her mother who is suffering from a mysterious illness. Accepting his offer to help leads her into a terrifying and thrilling world, where Elves are even hotter than Legolas, and Faeries.... are nothing like Tinkerbell. Lose the butterfly wings and add a tattoo. The two magical beings are fire and ice opposites. One Lorelei can’t help falling for, and the other she's compelled to be with.
Now she’s trapped in their world, expected to prevent a war between witches and faeries, or forfeit her mother’s life. Nothing is what it seems. Not her family. Not the Fey. Not even Adrius, whose feelings for her balance precariously between danger and desire.
As secrets unravel and unsettling truths are revealed, Lorelei must fight to save much more than her mother’s life. One mistake could put the fate of his world— and her soul, in jeopardy.
But hey, no pressure… right.
Ok y'all I have to tell you how very excited I was to read this book!! I did a book blitz on it months ago so when I had the opportunity to review it, I jumped at it!! Let me just say the story is just as enchanting as the gorgeous cover. I was so enthralled with Fire & Ice I couldn't put it down. From the first page to the last word, you'll love every part of this book!
It's hard to be a teenager, poor Lorelei is proof of this. She just wants to stay keep her head down, stay invisible and get through high school. With the arrival of the mysterious ( & handsome) Adrius, Lorelei is swept into a magical world she never knew excised. Not only does this stranger know everything about Lorelei, Adrius tells her he's an elf prince and she is the missing fairy princess with the to save their world.
Does Lorelei trust herself enough to come into her powers and save an endangered world???
I know the plot seems intense and maybe far fetched BUT I promise all the characters and their magic will pull you in and make you believe the impossible. Fire & Ice is a delightful mixture of healing powers, love, secrecy, legends and so much more! If you love Fae and fantasy this is a MUST read for you!!! Enjoy!!
