Taking the hero's road is a hard one, especially when a prince’s first duty should always be to his future princess.
Reed and I have loved Zelie for years, but the age gap—and her stupid boyfriend Ren—made anything other than friendship appear impossible. When Ren screws up, my brother and I are ready to make a move. But which one of us gets the first kiss?
Life is sweetberries and cream, until my boyfriend dumps me only days before our class reunion ball. My parents are too busy worrying over their endless war on ogres to notice or care. Looks like I’m going to be single forever.
When Reed and Ronin Elmray start coming around, I attempt to laugh off their advances. But the troublesome twins aren’t playing around, and I’d have to be blind not to notice they’ve grown into attractive adult males. I know better than to fall for their flirtations, even if they’re experts at making me shiver in all the right places.
After years of pining after a female elf who treated me and my brother like pesky younger siblings, Zelie’s resistance is wavering. But the fun’s about to end. Ronin and I have a responsibility to use our elemental powers for more than snowball fights. Saving elves is a calling rife with danger and Zelie’s not one to sit around waiting forever.
Another good addition to the series. I wanted to give this a 5 star review, but felt like it was missing a few chapters or something -when she moves closer to the twins & tells the twins she pregnant (we never get the shock & awe out of the twins!) & her parents, too. It jumped from her thinking she would have to tell the twins in person since she didn't tell them in letters like she promised to do, to her suddenly getting a job in a different town with no explanation of what went down in between that. I felt disoriented enough to flip back to see if I jumped some pages or something. I also wanted to know what really happened to destroy the dance, was it that person who was mad at her or what? That mystery was never solved. The story was light & enjoyable, almost tame to some of the others in the series, with not a lot of anger, angst or drama, and the twins are super sweet mangos, and the ménage romance is super sweet berries.
Oh how much fun this was! ALL THE FEELS!! i laugh and cried happy tears! Plenty of laugh-out- moments! There is this one favorite scene of mine with the siblings that had me dying!! I was crying from laughing so much! It made me miss my own siblings 😂💙 For anyone who love their annoying siblings and cousins, this one is for you! You will appreciate your love and family a little more! ☺️ And remember those sweet memories till the end of time. Because even if they are gone.. the memories will stay with us forever. Thank you for this. 😉 #TeamTwi
Oh sweet mangos!! How I love this family!! They absolutely have my heart! It's amazing to be reading the next generation's stories! I find it very delightful to read about the parents, aunts and uncle that were so entertaining in the first series. I have to say that The Ice Twins is captivating! I immediately wanted to see how everything would play out. I'm very detailed oriented in my reading expectations and can be quite a harsh critic. My one issue keeping this from a five star rating is that we don't see a big emotional reunion with exciting news revealed. After everthing I felt cheated that that was missing. Everything was building up so beautifully and then... I'm not sure what happened. I'm excited for the next book, because I truly can't get enough! I absolutely adore this very talented author and love reading her work. It always lifts my spirits when I get to begin a new tale from her.
This book as soon as I started reading took me away from my everyday reality and stress to a new world in which I could escape for awhile. It moves along at a great pace, has characters that you will fall in love with and want to know ore about. This book is an amazing read and needs to be read as well as the others in this series. They are amazing. This needs to be on your TBR list, no doubt about it.
I love all the characters. But my favorites are the Twins Reed and Robin. They’ve loved Zeke forever but life has gotten in the way. Now she’s single and it’s time to make a move. Zelie has started too notice how attractive they’ve become. Other than saving elves they wonder who will get the first kiss. She isn’t about too leave things to chance. She’s grabbing with both hands what she wants Twins. Melody is a firecracker of the first kind and I cannot wait for her story. Yummy read.
XXX, adult content reader discretion advised. So not as naughty as the rest of the series, still steamy. Zelie and the twins story has been in the making for a long time. Read and Ronin have wanted her since they realized girls don't have cooties. They always get what they want with a little mischief along the way!
Favorite Quote: "Ronin could sleep through a thunderstorm or a train wreck . . . or a train wreck in the middle of a thunderstorm. So annoying. If anyone ever tried to murder him in his sleep, he’d be lucky to have me nearby to freeze the last breath from their lungs before they ever got within an inch of his lazy ass."
Twins are usually a handful. Twin faelf (half fae-half elf) princes with ice elementals are definitely a handful. Good thing Zelie is just the elf to handle both of them. The Ice Twins has plenty of mischief, laughs, some heart ache, sexy time with gorgeous twins, a sassy little sister, ice magic, and portaling to the strange and fascinating human realm. (I wouldn't mind portaling with the twins. I like their idea of a vacation.) I enjoyed reading this book. It felt light-hearted and fun. I recommend The Ice Twins.
Another great story added to the Royal Conquest Saga, “The Ice Twins”. Twins always share right? Ronin and Reed definitely share everything, including loving the same elf, Zelie for years. The boys (really men) finally get the chance with Zelie. Author, Nikki Jefford does a great job writing the story of the twins and their chance to win the love of Zelie. It’s heartwarming, emotional, and always full of humor. I really enjoyed their story and it has been fun to see Ronin and Reed grow from young ins to men throughout the other books. Don’t miss this story.
What's better than one Elmary male, two Elmarys and better yet twins. I absolutely loved Reed and Ronin, they may be my favorite Elmary males since Liri. They are funny, sexy, loyal and caring. Oh and Zelie is my girl. I loved how she didn't hesitate to take what she wanted in life. And what she wanted wasn't one but Twin Elmarys I liked the twins' love of life and how when they made up their minds nothing could stop them, and how they stuck together.
Oh and Melody 😲 she is such a little sassy pants. She reminds so much of my daughter, so girly and a spit fire. I adored the relationship the twins had with Mel. I cannot wait to read Melody's story. I think she may be the wildest Royal heir of them all. Thank you Nikki Jefford for giving me another world to visit to help distract from the crazy on I currently reside in. This book was a fun and much needed escape and adventure. #TeamTwin
I can't explain just how excited I was when I saw the title of the upcoming books and read "The Ice Twins". Reed and Ronin have made me laugh since they were little troublemakers in Holiday Crown and The Golden Prince and thanks to books I can be the pervy woman that lusted after their father and now them too at an appropriate age. LOL. I digress. The Ice Twins was everything I wanted and more. The fact that they are finally at an age where Zelie can no longer overlook them, Fraya and Melody's place in the story, and the amazing twin bond and their powers just blew me away. Definitely one of my favorites and I'll be very sad to see the saga end soon.

So much love for The Ice Twins. Every time I read the next book in the next generation series I love the lead more than the last and Reed and Ronin are no exception to that. I think I could of read so much more about their story. I loved that Fraya was in it more too. I heart Zelie so much and really loved seeing the age gap considering I am six years older than my husband. Melody had be between laughing my ass off and shaking my head scared that my 11 year old was heading that way, smh. I can’t wait to see how her older story turns out. Can I have another Ice Twins book please?
I love these side stories about the offspring of the original series. Zelie, Ronin, and Reed make the perfect trio in this exciting new installment. If you like fantasy, love triangles with a twist, and/or a set of sexy twins. You will love this novel!! Only one more book and the series ends. Honestly. I’m not ready. These stories have been a breath of fresh air in a genre that needed someone to take a risk. Nikki Jefford takes a risk in all her novels by introducing plot lines that are unconventional, yet are executed flawlessly. Another 5 star read.
Of this series. I love it so much. I love watching the characters grow and get their happily ever afters. I’ve followed this series since it stated in The Monster Ball and I cannot believe there is only one book left. If you haven’t read the series yet, you need to! It’s amazing!
This story is such a fun read! Fans of this series will enjoy another hilarious and heart warming tale from these wonderful characters. Reed and Ronin pull out all the stops to try and convince Zelie that life with Team Twin is what she needs. 5 stars ❤️
