The descriptions are absolutely beautiful, you can picture each scene perfectly. The whole book has a warm, happy and uplifting feeling.

As a teenage author at the age of fifteen myself, I was extremely excited to read this novel. I had heard about Fire & Ice: The Elementals somewhere online and found myself a kindred spirit to the young author.

This book was so incredible! As soon as I finished reading it, I bought the second one!
The character and story development is really intricate and personal. It's very relatable, especially for young girls. Alice Hanley is a strong role model for both children and teenagers. Although the story is fictional, it contains many realistic points. Aisling is the new Narnia! (And that's saying a lo ...more
Vivid descriptions, rich prose, and thought provoking symbolism all contribute to the development of themes related to personal authenticity and courage. I look forward to reading Ms. Forbes’ second ...more
