Embers & Ice

Embers & Ice - Isabella Modra *Review copy provided by the author in exchange of an honest review*

I was pretty excited to start this book because of what happened in the first one. Even though my studies kind of got in the way, I still managed to find some time to read. Luckily, this book did not disappoint me at all. I think that this one was better than the first one in terms of action and plot twists. Speaking of plot twists, I'll try my best not to give away a lot about the story.

Hunter, after being devastated from losing Eli, was placed in ICE— an institution for people like her.There she met and made friends, allies and a possible love interest. Of course, if there were allies, there were also enemies. You can read that one as "mad scientist" and crazy-ass government officials taking advantage of their special gifts to create bioweapons. I honestly think that this was one of the best addition to the story. It made the book more interesting and a legit page-turner.

The third-person POV of the book seemed all over the place for me though, because I sort of had a hard time keeping tracks with what's happening to the characters but it added to the tension of the story so yeah, that was okay.

The cliffhanger at the end was a cruel way to conclude the book. I seriously need more. Really clever, Isabella.

Overall, the book is a really great read. It's better if you read this one right after the other especially if you hate cliffhangers.
