Cool book, but not sure if I would read it again. It was a little bit of a strange read for me. And the plot was kinda difficult to follow. Still I would recommend it to anyone looking for an interesting book to pass a rainy day.

A truly beautiful story with a strong leading heroine who is figuring out who she is, amazing similes, engaging story-telling, touching emotion and character experiences I can totally relate to, especially the heroine in particular.

Lots of twists but not extreme drama. Well written. I liked this book because it talks about stories, storytelling, and the power of them.

The twists and turns in this thrilling story took kept me in anxious suspense awaiting the outcome. Solveig is a worthy main character and the book wraps up with a very powerful ending.

I was slow to warm up to Icefall, and even when I did finally get drawn into it I didn't end up liking it nearly as much as I wanted to. As much as I *should have* liked it, based on all of the other readers who have loved it and a…

Great sense of timing, with the tension ratcheting up chapter by chapter.

I really liked the Clockwork Three, so when I noticed this on the shelf with the same author, but a really different sort of story, I wondered. Yes, it's a completely different idea than the Clockwork Three, but the author's writing has…

Long story short (so to speak) when reading Icefall you believe in Kirby’s characters, relationships, setting, and the ability of the heroine to learn and grow. Mr. Matthew Kirby debuted as a middle grade novelist last year with his…
