Review by Hibiscus

Destiny waits for all… especially a headstrong princess.

Royal blood can take a princess only so far in life. Sooner or later destiny will sweep her off her feet. If she’s lucky, he’s tall, blond, fun to push around, and helps her save their ice ball planet from a killer comet.

This book reminded me a little of the old Flash Gordon movies and the planet Frigia. Nordia is an ice planet where everything is white and cold. Noreen is the older twin Princess and also The Profetia who is destined to marry the One and conceive the first male heir.

I enjoyed the characters of Noreen and Gunnar. Despite the fact Noreen was spoiled when she was allowed to run away at sixteen to avoid marriage to Gunnar, I thought it was clever that she used her skills to increase trade with other countries and send goods to help improve life on Nordia. I thought that Gunnar was very patient to wait ten years for his bride to come to him. I loved his idea of being pure for his Profetia. I smiled as he tried to explain it to Noreen.

The use of Odin and Thor and other Norse gods throughout the story was also very cleaver. It was cute how the Clash of Thor’s hammer sounded when the Profetia and Chosen One find each other and when they conceive. I laughed when the crew called to make sure everything was fine in the transport as they heard the clash and saw the transport rocking.

There are a lot of very good minor characters all of whom are fleshed out and play important parts in the story. I loved Noreen’s twin sister Coreen, they always talk to each other in their minds. Then there was Hollis, Noreen’s ex-beau. It was funny that he claims to be married to Noreen through some weird ritual on the day before she left him. When he followed her to Nordia, I felt that there was something more to him than meets the eye.

Lest I forget, there is the small matter of a comet coming at the planet Nordia. I thought the way they figured out how to save the planet was ingenious. Even Doctor Zarkov could not come up with a better plan.

The love between Noreen and Gunnar was very touching. He had been planning with her father for ten years and been supplied with books on how to tame Nory. Some of Gunnar’s methods had me wishing I was Nory. I melted when he stepped on the broken glass from the shower door to carry Noreen to safety. And the lovemaking in the Arbor and resort. Wow.

For a story that takes place on an icy planet, there was a lot of heat. I highly enjoyed the hot story of Frozen.
