Ice Land - Betsy Tobin The longer I sat on my review for this book the more I felt I should give it 4 stars instead of my original 3, so I did.

At first the book was a bit difficult to get into. It is written in the present tense which, being uncommon in novels, was a bit jarring at first. Once I got past that, I found that the prose was quite lovely and well written.

The book primarily follows Freya and Fulla in alternating story viewpoint chapters and includes a few viewpoint chapters for other characters as well. In the end all the stories intertwine quite well, but there's a fairly long build up to it. I probably spent a good 75% of the book wondering how the two stories were going to intersect each other. Once the story picked up it was a very fun read.
