4/5 Review: Cursed by Ice: The Immortal Brothers by Jacquelyn Frank


 
As punishment for plotting with his brothers to steal immortality, Garreth is suffering a freezing torment until the end of time. Again and again, his fierce fighter’s physique is frozen into a chiseled ice sculpture, his heart hardening like a diamond in his chest—only to thaw and resume the chilling torture. Until, like his older brother Dethan, he is offered a reprieve from a goddess—in exchange for his allegiance in a celestial civil war.

Garreth lives to fight and fights to live. But while laying siege to an embattled city, he finds another reason to go on—a beautiful warrior woman named Sarielle, who commands a mythic beast through a mysterious and powerful bond. Terrified of her strength, the city rulers have kept her captive, and now she refuses to submit to a new master. As Garreth seeks to unleash her passion and melt the icy resistance of her heart, will he become her ultimate salvation—or lead them both to greater destruction?

My Thoughts/Review: OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!! This story had me on the edge of my bed all weekend. Once I started reading it I could not put it down. It starts with a slow build up which I totally loved. It took me on a ride that started with sadness to tears to wonderment to outright anger. The emotional roller coaster was the best thing about this story because you were rooting for Garreth and Sarielle and then you were like what the heck?

 This story held me captivated because Jacquelyn Frank does such an awesome job of weaving something new into her story. Yes it is about immortal warriors, but HOT DAMN what Warriors they are. He is a cursed man, who has fallen in love, but knows that he will not claim Sarielle when he is tied to the gods for all time. The sex scenes are intimate and revealing oh so Sexy.

To say I was thoroughly surprised at this book is an understatement. Not really in the reading mood, I started the book only to become immersed in the story. Frank's imagination has created an amazing world. Her characters are amazing and fun and yummy. ooooh so yummy! Even with his hot and cold emotions, you will just adore Garreth. Frank keeps you guessing what will transpire between Garreth and Sarielle the entire time. The ending was well done leading into the next book of the series.

Cursed by Ice is one of those books that won't let go once you're done with it. I just finished the book and already I want to read it again. So full of mystery, romance and witty  references you are sure to love every word Ms.Frank has written.
