True rating: 3.5 stars.

Much improved over the first Zandria book. The characters are handled better, as are all aspects of the story. Still not up to what the author will do in her Library of Athena series, but solid nonetheless.

Most young girls want to live a fairy tale life. Ivy Patterson already did, once. However, she'd forgotten all about Zandria, her friends, and the evil witch she helped to thwart. Zandria didn't forget about Ivy. With a new threat looming in Zandria, Ivy is summoned back to the magical world to help uncover a mysterious plot and save her friends from the eternal cold that has swept across the land. This time, she's not alone and her friend from the Otherside, Lori, joins in on the adventure.

As with Christine Norris' other novels, this one is action packed, but maybe a ...more
