The fate of his people rests in her hands.
When the penitentiary ship she’s incarcerated in gets sucked into an anomaly, Kira barely survives the crash onto an alien planet. Along with a handful of survivors, she finds refuge in the fiery city of Caldera alongside its Fire Valos inhabitants. But the sadistic experiments performed on her by the prison’s scientist make the heat intolerable for her. When the opportunity to go to the frozen city of E’Lek presents itself, Kira believes she’ll finally find her new home.
Duke is confused by the strange human female. Like him, she’s cold, made for the icy lands of the Northern Valos. Her resemblance with the Creators and questionable friendships raise their collective suspicions. Yet, only she can save their lost tribes condemned to an eternal slumber. As his heartstone warms for her, Duke is determined to prove to his people that despite appearances, Kira belongs with them… belongs with him.

Review By Bubbles The Book Pimp
Another fantastic instalment in the Valos of Sonhadra series brought to us by Regine Abel. 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
Regine’s previous installement if you have not read it is called Unfrozen and a review by Bubbles can be found Here
After crash landing in the space penitentiary on the planet Sonhadra five months earlier. Kira knew her life would change, initially living with a band of other survivors and barely surviving. When they are found Lucie another ( inmate ) and the fire Valos, they move with them to their city.
As a victim of experiments on the Concord, the heat of the fire Valos and the City in the Caldera was slowly killing her. So when the chance to visit the Northern Ice Valos come up, Kira knows she has to go. The iced city is her only hope for survival.
After setting out to find the city and becoming separated in a blizzard, kira stumbles across the lost tribes of the Ice Valos, its apparant that they have been mistreated and experiments on by the creators.
Duke has been searching for his family and the other I’ve tribes since he was awoken by the human Lydia, his friends mate and their bringer of life back to the frozen city of E’lek. With so many now awake he can focus on finding the others that are missing. What he doesn’t expect to find is a tiny snow fairy hiding out with them…
I am a unrepentant sci-fi romance lover. The original books in this series literally had my head spinning and my sci-fi hear singing with joy! A whole new world of inhabitants and species to learn and discover and this book does not disappoint! 💚💚💚🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
I love the fact that we get to know more of the Valos story and meet previous charachters again… their continuing story was one that focused on trust, in oneself in others in the future… a true page turner.
It’s fantastic seeing how after so much hurt and hardship, how the Valos and humans have worked together to move past the hurts of the past and focus on the future. Accepting of others differences despite the similarities between the humans and the creators.
Despite her concerns, I found Kira to be a wonderful female lead.. with her fears and jealousy ( over Duke ) she was a realistic breath of fresh air when most female leads are written to perfection with no foibles. I loved her inner comments and thoughts about Lydia when duke was explaining his history!! 😂😂😂
Duke is now in Bubbles Book Boyfriend Harem…as if he had a chance to escape my notice with his wonderful caring and protective nature!! 💚💚
