Christina Dodd weaves an intricate tale of paranormal bliss and passion, in her newest release, Chains of Ice. John is one of the Chosen Ones. An incredibly rare and powerful group of individuals, who each have their own special gift. John's gift is his ability to wield strength and power. He can stave off attacks and control objects, with a sort of power force field. When a mission goes inconceivably wrong, leading to the deaths of everyone in his group, with the exception of him and the group's leader, he isolates himself from the world, within the wild. Genny has always allowed her father to call the shots in her life, even deciding her career path. These decisions, however, have never been made out of love, but rather by what would be most beneficial for him. Little does her father know just how drastically this final betrayal, disguised as a gift, will send Genny's life spiraling. When Genny Valente receives a gift from her father, which includes a wilderness trip to help scout out and track the coveted Lynx, she is thrilled beyond words. That is until she discovers the strings attached to the gift - the fact that she is to find John Powell and convince him to return to New York and his contracted duty to Gypsy Travel Agency. However, John has no intention of returning to a world that has left his heart, soul and life shattered. Those intentions begin to slip and weaken, however, when he meets Genny, whose life-force is incredibly strong and so difficult to resist. When a partial truth emerges, John's inability to trust changes both his and Genny's lives forever. Chains of Ice is the third in The Chosen Ones series by Christina Dodd, following Storm of Visions and Storm of Shadows. Each installment focuses on one of The Chosen Ones, telling their story. It is because of this that each story is able to stand alone, and can easily be enjoyed, without feeling as though there are bits and pieces missing. I absolutely sank into Christina Dodd's writing, her voice, style and characterization are superb and engrossing. The chemistry between Genny and John sizzle, at times the descriptions so vivid it was as though I could reach out and touch the characters and their surroundings. Feelings of empathy, anger, passion, heartbreak and desperation filled me, as I raced through the pages of Chains of Ice. The paranormal aspect of the story was nowhere near overdone. For me it was the perfect blend of mythology, paranormal and romance. In following with Ms. Dodd's excellent use of balance, in her writing, the heat between Genny and John is heady and sensual, without being overtly so. With that being said, I do have to be honest in saying that there were a couple of areas within the story, that left me scratching my head. I don't want to get into too much detail for the simple fact that I don't want to give too much of the story away. For me, there was one scene, near the end of the book, that just simply did not seem to fit with what was taking place around it. One other area, which seemed to lend a bit of emptiness for me, pertains to a two year gap, which takes place within the story. I felt that, perhaps, there could have been a bit more elaboration in this particular area. Please note that these incidents are in and of themselves and, as far as I know, are not the result of not having read the previous books in the series. Even with those two things, Chains of Ice is an excellent tale of love, paranormal, the ability

The conflict and sexual tension are so bizaar between the hero and heroine that at first I wasn't sure if I should root for them or wait for a dramatic falling out, but Christina Dodd definitely delivered with this book. I wasn't always sure what was happening between the two on a personal level, but the way they stood united was very entertaining to read.

My overall impression is that it wasn't quite as good as I expected, at least from Christina Dodd. Even though I didn't think it was her best it was still an entertaining read, I especially liked the dynamics between Genny and John. My first issue was with Genny's father. I wanted to know exactly what his story was, even if he was just a secondary character. The fact that I had a problem with that made me laugh because I've noticed I get annoyed most times when the story starts to drag but at the same time, I have this need to know everything about all of the characters. My guess is that I can't decide on anything, like normal : )Then I also wasn't a fan of the second "love interest" if that's what you want to call it. Maybe obsessive, crazy, homicidal maniac is a better description. I couldn't really tell you why this is but when I got to the "revelation" of this love, all I could think was "oh, here we go."Finally, when there is a supposed "death", I started losing interest altogether, and stopped caring about what would happen in the end of the story. I know after reading this, it wouldn't make sense to say that I still enjoyed the book, but when looking at the novel as a whole those three issues aren't that big.
