City of Ice

City of Ice is a middle grade fantasy adventure, and book two in the City Trilogy, by Laurence Yep.

As I stated on Monday, I decided to wait on reading the first book in this trilogy, City of Fire.

Because I’m waiting, not skimming because of dislike or disinterest, I’m also waiting on the second book, City of Ice.

But for those of you who are interested, I figured I’d give you some information about City of Ice – though it’d be best to avoid unless you’ve already read City of Fire, because the less you know the better!!!

In an alternate version of our world in 1941 there are lap griffins, legendary Chinese warriors, Japanese folk creatures, dragons taking human form, and gods in disguise!

Scirye and her companions have pursued the dragon Badik and Mr. Roland all the way to the Arctic Circle, intent on avenging the deaths of their loved ones.

With help they chase their enemies across the desolate Wastes, determined to stop Mr. Roland from locating the second of the Five Lost Treasures of Emperor Yu. If he finds them all, he could alter the very fabric of the universe…

Many, though, who enter the Wastes never return…

Again, I have not read City of Ice, nor finished City of Fire.

The description certainly sounds like it could be fun, if written well!

I know it is out of the ordinary for me to post a review of a book I have not read, but I want to give it its due by presenting it to all of you bibliophiles for your possible reading enjoyment.

Let me know what you think!!!
