“A Dream of Ice” by Gillian Anderson and Jeff Rovin (Simon & Schuster, 2016)

Gillian Anderson and Jeff Rovin are back with the second book of the EarthEnd Saga, A Dream of Ice. The stakes have been raised to a whole new level. While tensions are heating up in the world, a mystical link has been discovered with an ancient civilization known as Galderkhaan.

Renowned child psychologist Caitlin O’Hara is now part of this mystical link that stretches back through time and is not exactly understood. But with it Caitlin is able to help these children now, healing their minds and severing their links with this past world. And yet as she is helping those in need, she can sense that there is someone watching her; someone who is linked with Galderkhaan. And this someone is also after her son.

Meanwhile Mikel Jasso, an unusual character who works for a mysterious, clandestine organization and is always used to getting results, is in Antarctica. He knows the power and importance of the mysterious artifacts that appear to be part of this ancient lost world known as Galderkhaan. In a crevasse in this frozen land, he goes down deeper, sensing something important is down there. What he finds will change the world forever.

A Dream of Ice presents the two plots of Caitlin O’Hara and Mikel Jasso on separate tangents that will ultimately be linked. Caitlin’s storyline starts off interesting but stagnates a little, while Mikel’s continues to get more and more interesting. The second book in the series is a little weaker than the first, but continues to open up the world and the complex plot, making the reader wonder where it’s going to go next in the third book in the series, due out September 2016.
