Lira and Reyker have lost everything. Including each other. Lira of Stone watched her home burn and her clan fall beneath the sword of the warlord known as the Dragon. She believes the man she loves, a warrior who defected from the Dragon's army, is dead. Alongside her exiled brother and his band of refugees, she will fight the forces that conquered her island. But the greatest danger may come from Lira herself -- with the blood of banished gods running through her veins, she's become a weapon, and no one is safe from the power of her wrath. Reyker Lagorsson thought he was done being a Dragonman. That was before he saw Lira leap from a cliff and vanish into the sea. Determined to honor her memory by protecting her people, Reyker must feign loyalty to the warlord, undermine him at every turn, and seek alliances with renegade soldiers without succumbing to the battle-madness that threatens to possess him once more. When the Fallen Ones offer Lira a chance to defeat the Dragon, her quest leads her to a place she never expected Iseneld, the warlord's homeland. Her journey into the heart of the Frozen Sun will put her on a collision course with Reyker, costing both of them more than they ever imagined, and leaving her with a terrible choice: to save their countries, she must forsake everything she loves.

KINGDOM OF ICE AND BONE picks up where the first book left off. Lira and Reyker are separated and each believes the other to be dead. Their grief is palpable as they fight the monstrous gods in their lives. Lira was saved by the Fallen Ones, and she is beholden to their desires to be free- a task that seems impossible. Her powers have become unpredictable and she is unsure of so many things in her life, except her desire for freedom and to see Reyker again.

Reyker is back with his brother, Draki, the Dragon, who is a conqueror with magic that he uses for evil. Reyker is disgusted with him, but he recognizes him as family, resulting in an internal struggle as he watched Draki torture others and play with their minds.

This book is ultimately a book of battles and gets pretty dark sometimes. I really enjoyed getting deeper into some of the characters, the mythology of this interesting world, and the conflicts and internal struggles that appear throughout. The pacing is a bit slower at first but definitely picks up throughout the book as we get into the groove of the characters and this world, becoming quite engaging until the shocking conclusion.

I would definitely recommend this series for people who enjoy darker YA fantasies, such as FIND ME THEIR BONES and WICKED SAINTS.
