Book Review: Surviving Ice

Title Surviving Ice

Series Burying Water, book 4

Author K. A. Tucker

Release Date October 27, 2015

Ivy, a talented tattoo artist who spent the early part of her twenties on the move, is finally looking for a place to call home. She thinks she might have found it in San Francisco, but all that changes when she witnesses a terrible crime. She’s ready to pack up her things yet again, when a random encounter with a stranger keeps her in the city, giving her reason to stay after all.

That is, until Ivy discovers that their encounter wasn’t random. Not at all…

This is the last book in the Burying Water series. It's also my favorite of the series.

I love Ivy. She's tough, fierce, and independent. She's sassy and funny. She makes no apologies about who she is. Underneath that hard exterior is still a girl that has feelings (even if she can't exactly express them). I love that Ivy's personality didn't change when she started falling for Sebastian. She didn't lose her fierceness and turn into a puddle of drippy love goo. It's fantastic to see a character stay true to herself while falling for her love interest.

Speaking of love interest, Sebastian is a pretty great one. He's sexy and mysterious. He's guarded just like Ivy is. He's used to be alone and independent. And just like Ivy, Sebastian doesn't turn into a puddle of drippy love goo. He's a perfect fit for her and I loved them together.

The story was interesting, but it did feel a little slow sometimes. The great characters are enough to carry it through the slower times, though, so I wasn't put off by the slight lulls.

K. A. Tucker's work is still some of my favorite reading. Even though this is the end of this series, I hope to read more from her in the future.


5 out of 5 stars
