"An emotionally intense book"
Jannia, who was raped and brutally attacked, can barely
stand to be touched. She is an emotionally scarred young
woman who hides her emotions deep within herself. She has
put on a harsh facade that few people try to penetrate. The
one exception to this is Emarr Dengas. Emarr is an alien
empath and former slave, who feels the emotions hidden in
Jannia and believes that she is his destiny. Jannia is
drawn to Emarr but avoids him, because of her fear.
Jannia arrives late to her friends' wedding and when Emarr
arrives, the wedding is over. He is so late, because he
saved a young girl of his species, who had been kept as a
slave. Jannia decides to help Emarr stop the person who is
selling his people as slaves. Emarr must somehow get
through to Jannia, stop the slaver, free his people, and
find the route to his home world.
WALLS OF ICE is an intense and engrossing science fiction
romance about two very scarred individuals. WALLS OF ICE
was so intense that, at times, I felt emotionally drained.
However, it was emotionally drained in a good way. I was
very involved in the characters' struggles and the ending
was very satisfying. I'm looking forward to the next book
in this series.
