Author Kirsten Imani Kasai has created a rich world in her first book Ice Song. I found myself mesmerized by the genetic mutations that have changed the world, and the society that has evolved around these differences between unaltered humans, those with animal genes and characteristics, and the Traders. I was drawn in by the amazing descriptions of the people and places forming this story. I found myself wishing this book was longer. This is an amazingly strong first book, and I look forwards to reading more by this new author in the future.
Armchair Interviews says: A stunning debut fantasy about love and the ties of blood.
