The Ice Queen

by Alice Hoffman

If you are looking for a book to grab your attention and shorten the hours of a long journey then this is the book for you!
It is a modern day fairytale set in America and the main character is unsparing and emotional detached until she meets with someone who has a catalystic effect on her life.
Alice Hoffman's writing style has a folklorish quality, it is clean and precise with a silky sheen of eroticsm cutting through its centre.
I found this book utterly compelling and it stayed with me for days after.

This book certainly grabs your attention and at times is quite harsh but overall is utterly compelling reading - I read this over a weekend and wouldn't have missed it for the world!?!
