Ice Wolves (Elementals #1) Reviews
This was okay I guess? Totally mixed opinions on this book
I loved Kaufman’s sci-fi book, Illuminae, and when I was given the opportunity to pick up her book at a book festival, I was quite excited!
I had very little knowledge on what the book was about other than it being a Middle Grade novel filled with Viking like magic. I went into the book blindly, which was quite nice to do since everything was a surprise.
We follow the story of Anders, who is an orphan surviving the streets alongside his twin sister Rayna. Due to a series of unfortunate events, Ra ...more
**I received an advance copy of this book from the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Thank you, HarperCollins!! All opinions are my own.**
May it be known, that even as I write this less than positive review, that I love Aime Kaufman. Not only does she seem like a really nice person, but Illuminae is one of my favorite YA Sci-fi novels of all time. So, while her young adult books have been enjoyable for me, I am afraid to say that the sentiment did not extend to her middle ...more
This was a fun, action packed but thoughtful read. I liked all the characters and the plot has definitely got me intrigued. It does read a little on the younger end of middle grade but it's still a good story and I liked it a lot. Looking forward to the next in the series.
Well, this was positively delightful! Amie has created a very fascinating new world, reminiscent of medieval Scandinavia but with a very diverse cast of characters and complete with a unique magic system. Not to mention the shapeshifting that is . . . well, very unique!
Really enjoyed this, and the only drawback is that, since I was sent an ARC from a giveaway here on Goodreads, I have to wait even longer for the next one!
3.5 stars! Pretty solid series starter, complete with interesting world and readable plot featuring some familiar tropes. While not necessarily a new fave, I am quite curious to see what happens next.

This was such a fun read! I'll admit I mainly picked it up because:
1. I love winter (look at that gorgeous cover)
2. yay wolves
3. DRAGONS?! yes.
4. POC kids on the cover
5. Amie Kaufman. Enough said.
So I didn't know a ton about the plot and thought the whole thing was SUCH a fun surprise.
The basic story is that Anders and Rayna are twins who live on the street and depend on each other. One day they find themselves in a crowd where kids are being tested to see if they ...more
I almost didn't read this when I saw it was middle school level. It's hard, I'm a well aged adult, yes well aged. I like to think I'm mature and need adult level book to be entertained. But, I really loved the Illuminae Files she wrote so I dove in. I am not not mature or this was really good writing. I loved it.
The story follows two orphans, twins as they struggle to live free in a world separated by war and hate. There are humans who need protection, wolves who provide it and dragons who cause ...more
