Ice like Fire - Sara Raasch

#2 in the Snow like Ashes trilogy
young adult, fantasy
I thought that the first book was great
fascinating characters, a special world and several unexpected developments
this second book had all of the above
and still I struggled with the story
everything seemed to be one big build-up for the final book
some drawn out story elements, the romance, annoyed me
at times I felt as if the story from the first book was told again in a new setting
middle book syndrome
oh how I dislike you
I want every book in a trilogy to be equally important and good
to add something essential to the series
to be a story that needed to be told
now I wonder if a duology with two big books wouldn't have been better
I will read the final book
but I'm no longer that excited about it.
