Reviews of Princess of Ice by Nadia Scrieva

Gur01 reviewed on Dec. 3, 2020

It took her century to kill her father who was sexually abusing her sisters. That too for some other reasons not for the abuse. sorry, if this could have mentioned earlier in the story description somewhere I could have not wasted time in this story line. Sexual abuse that too by own blood relatives is not an easy thing to handle, that these creatures handled for century, that is horrible. Insensitive writing I feel.

The princess seems to be an coward not an heroine. Don't like the way it sound, if put it like this way. But the author is giving these points as bits and pieces after a long read. So crossed many pages as I considered it as an interesting read. But can't process with the same interest after linking these things. It is irritating.

Welcome to Atlantis 2.0. Bigger, better, and more exciting.

From the first chapter of this novel I was hooked & intrigued. I was drawn in both by the author’s fantastic storytelling as well as her extremely captivating world. Her writing kept me enwrapped. I was entranced and couldn’t look away, needing to see what comes next. Scrieva was informative, building this fantastical underwater world, while remaining captivating and entertaining. As a reader I could visualise each aspect of every world visited and felt myself really falling further and further into the pages.

By the end of the novel I felt like I’d known Scrieva’s characters for many lifetimes. Her character development was so real and personal that the characters were developed as friends not just as individuals within the covers of a book. Their reactions and interactions were also so real that I couldn’t help but feel for them. Passions run high amongst the characters, adding to the intensity of the novel as a whole.

As a whole this was a brilliant series introduction that set up the world perfectly while entertaining readers and leaving them wanting more. I’m definitely going to be reading more by this talented (and Canadian) author and would recommend this to others without the slightest hesitation.

I must admit I started to read this a little reluctantly however I was soon completely captivated by the realism of the story and the depth of the characters. One of the best fantasy books I have read in a long time and the best and most plausible dealing with underwater civilizations. Thoroughly well researched with a fast moving plot and two fascinating main characters. In my mind a better read for sci-fi fans than Harry Potter as the witches and spells worlds have been done to ad nauseum.I hear Hollywood knocking...

We've all heard the mermaid myth: sultry sirens subduing sailors into a salty seabound sepulchre, if you'll pardon my alliteration. Ms. Scrieva uses a Darwinian approach to the lore that is refreshing and scientific. Her treatment of the mermaid mythos does not concern itself with an origin story as much as present the current day plight of the undersea kingdoms they inhabit. It follows the voyage of self-discovery of one rugged, experienced, Alaskan crab fishing boat captain who internalizes the death of a crewmate, an act which drives him to seek comfort in the arms of an exotic dancer. This association reveals to him a whole different side of reality, plunging him into the middle of an undersea war. The writing style is both rich and lofty, while maintaining a speed of action that moves the reader along at the speed of life. Having read the sequel, this first tome sets the stage for what is to be a sweeping saga. The characters struggle with the question of what it means to be human; neither providing simple answers, nor ceasing to open new questions. Personally, I cannot wait for the third volume. I'm not saying this will be the new Harry Potter, but only because it is not meant for children's eyes.

Harry Potter enchanted Wizards, Drowning Mermaids enchanted Mermaids. The vivid imagery and sharpness of the characters put you right into the story. I finished this book being thankful to live in Florida, because I wanted to take a swim! The author has a way of breathing life into the experiences you read about in the story that is utterly invigorating. In the way that Rowling ruffled our imagination with the possibility that wizards live among us and maybe *we* could be a wizard, Nadia has done this with Mermaids. The author keeps this majestic story grounded with roots based on fact, you can tell she put her research hat on in writing this story. I cannot wait to see where Aazuria's story goes with the groundwork that has been laid in this novel. I guess this is not the kind of thing you judge a book on, but it was so refreshing to read a thesaurus of the coolest, prettiest names I will ever come across in my life! I could not put this book down (or minimize it :P)! Reading it was an adrenaline rush from beginning to end with many twists characteristic of the author's work. The delicate relationship of Aazuria and Trevain was beautiful and dramatic! To truly appreciate the story and the characters, you really just have to dive in!
