The main characters created by Robbi have great depth, with back stories critical to the unfolding of the central love theme. But this is also true of the supporting cast who are given interesting and accomplished lives and desires and interact With the story line in meaningful ways, making the personal level of the book well crafted and convincing. The science didn't need to be super detailed, it's melting ice, we can all get that, so the science becomes a part of the background without overwhelming the story, and provides the wonderful metaphors of thawing and melting that get paralleled in the physical and emotional themes of the story. Probably the most important thing was that I cared about the characters and became bewitched by the wonderfully human interactions between ttem. I super recommend this, it's a lovely story.
2,0 von 5 SternenThis Reads like a Love Letter to Greenland, not a Lesbian Romance. The Romance Entirely Takes Backseat to the Locale!

I spent page after page waiting for a romance to bloom and fall in love with, but after I was over 80% through the book, I knew I'd be disappointed when it finally arrived. I didn't care for Pipa's Asa flashbacks. I actually began skipping those chapters as I found them irrelevant to the main characters. To be honest, the Asa dreams bored me. I enjoyed the "idea" of Kelly and Jordan finally making it work, but I couldn't feel the need or the passion b/w the characters. It wasn't a riveting love story. At most, it was a fine description of Greenland's topography, geography, and it's cultural history. However, I didn't purchase or read this book to get a lesson on Greenland. I wanted a romantic love story first, and a nice location as the backdrop. Greenland is the star/main character of this book, not Kelly or Jordan. For that reason, I'm disappointed. It is well written, but I definitely need to begin a new title to wash away the poor taste in my mouth this book has left lingering.
I like the aspects of the history of the vikings, and how they had an impact on the natives of Greenland. I like that the stories are woven together, like past and here and now are in real life too. I also like that the way it is written, with the historical facts and the descriptions of the nature and the enviroment feels realistic, and gives me the urge to read and learn more about Greenland and the history of the island.
I enjoyed the story and learning about ice. The author did her homework on this one. The characters were nothing new, kind of the same ol' lesbians, in a different setting. I do like this author though and will continue to read her works.
