Fire and Ice (Faerie Song Trilogy)


Adventure wasn’t something Lorelei Alundra was interested in. Gifted with two otherworldly 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.

My Review:
Fire & Ice is a compelling story about love, lies, and a mysterious prophecy that could mean the end of Mythlandia. Only Lorelei can fulfil the prophecy and save this enchanted world from the evil Ice Witch. This story is a very detailed and complicated tale. I have to admit, that there were parts of the story that lost my interest. Weirdly enough, they were parts in the magical world. There was so much information to absorb, and so much to process that it left my head spinning and slightly disinterested in going on. The storyline was interesting enough, but I felt compelled to start skimming because there was just so much going on. I think it’s a good story if you have the time to invest in it. Like I said, the storyline is compelling and it is a great idea. I just thought it was too much for one story.
I wanted to love this book. I loved Lorelei. She reminded me a lot of myself at that age. Very quiet and just wanting to blend into the scenery. She was strong and she knew what she had to do, even if she had a hard time believing she was a fairy princess. I give this book 3 stars. It was a great idea, but it probably should have been at least two books.
