I just finished the fourth book of the epic Fire and Ice series and I was both pleased and a tad disappointed with the book. While my review will not be unique or revolutionary and will sound similar to many othe reviews, I plod ahead...

The writing and the world building of this series are still outstanding. It is fun to read and the characters are all unique and well flushed out. I liked some of the new characters in this book, and will not complain that the story did not move forward as much as the first three books. My bigger complaint is not that the overarching story didn't move forward, it is that the story within the book never left me wanting more. In the first three books, when a chapter ended for a character, it took everything in me to not flip ahead to find the next chapter for that character to find out what happened next. I don't think that happened a single time in this book. The cliffhangers did not really stick with me until the final few chapters, and for that reason I would probably rate this book more of a 4.5/5.

I am looking forward to the fifth book, especially because the characters I am most interested in will be in that book. Still one of my favorite series of all time.
