Summary of the Book:

Stranded on a collapsing frozen lake, two 14-year-olds find themselves trapped in a mythic entity’s uncanny hunting grounds.

Despite being horrified by the idea of taking even a single step onto the ice, Falc, a shy newbie to northern ways, tracks his erratic grandpa to a seasonal ice fishing shanty town atop Lake Blackbird. Falc unexpectedly bonds with the quirky community of fisher-people, including a chainsaw-obsessed ice sculptor and Aiyanna, a tobogganing-daredevil from school. But when new friends and family all vanish, Falc and Aiyanna must begin a desperate quest for survival, plunging after the community into a frigid labyrinth of mystifying ice fishing hole portals… the domains of a terrifying presence and lurking secrets. 

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. There was just something about this vivid tale that just pulled me in. I wanted to know what happened at each step of Falc and Aiyanna’s adventure. They were going through a lot in this story. It was a bond that kept them going together. I could almost hear the ice and what was happening to them with each turn of the page. That is really saying something about the way the book was written. I have to say that it came to an end a little too soon for me. I wanted more and for it to keep going.

My Rating of the Book: 4 1/2 Stars
