My name is Savannah and I’m the founder Books With Bite. Books have always found a way to my heart with great literature and adventure. Though I may not be a teen, I wish I could be!
So I started this book looking for some good thrilling action. I got just that.
Plot: This story revolves around the woods, a snow storm and some unexpected run in with some trouble. I really liked the pace of the story. One minute its going they way I think it is them BAM, change. The plot is very thrilling with the mysterious of the woods, survivals and of course disappearances. All the characters bring something to the table. Either it’s their keen instinct for survival, their mysteriousness of who they really are and the storm that keeps on getting worse.
Characters: This story also plots out a very good teen thrill-like movie. The chapters flow well with bits of the characters of who they really are coming out little by little. I admit that my suspensions of what was really going on was flying through my head. Like is he the killer? Where did the other girl go? How did he get there so fast? So many questions/motives going through my head that I was thoroughly entertained.
Ending: Now the ending didn’t quite catch me by surprise sense I had my suspensions right, but I loved the way the plot lead up to it. It gave me this rush of excitement to know what is about to go down!
My only gripe is the slight stockholm syndrome. Then again, everyone was lying not saying who they really were so I think I can get past this little tidbit.
Overall, this is a great thrilling book. I would recommend this book for older mature teens as it does carry on some gruesome scenes right from the start. Black Ice is an sharply written, well written thriller.
