Review: Ice Wolves

Orphaned since infancy because of the war between the Ice Wolves and Scorch Dragons, twins Anders and Rayna relied on no one but each other.

But when the two line up to touch the staff of Hadda in order to avoid arrest for pick-pocketing, the worst imaginable thing happens.

Anders takes the form of an Ice Wolf when he touches the Staff of Hadda, and Rayna, that of a Scorch Dragon.

It shouldn't be possible.

It makes Anders wonder if he and Rayna are even related, but she is his life. Anders has to escape the city to save his sister, but to do so he must enter places he would never previously have dared set foot.

His new uniform is warmer than anything he's ever touched and his stomach is always full in this new world. There's even the chance he might make a friend of two. He could be happy here. Very happy.

When he learns about the the true meaning of the equinox Anders enters a race against time to save his sister from the Scorch Dragons.

Ice Wolves  is a rollercoaster of high action and intrigue with more than a touch of magic to spice things up. 

You won't want to put it down.
