Pros:great prose, great plot, believable characters

Cons:it wasn't long enough! (just below 400 pgs)

Born in Ice is the second book of the Born in series by Nora Roberts and it's my favorite of her books so far! I am usually not into the typical romance novel with those wind blown hair people on the cover. Born in Ice (and many other books by Roberts) is much more than just a romance novel. It's about family relationships, culture, community, sisterhood, and beautiful scenery to top it off!

I have never been to Ireland, but after reading this book, it makes me want to go visit the beautiful countryside of the West County. Born in Ice's plot is not straight forward (except for the fact that you KNOW they are going to get together!), and as the second book in the trilogy, it further establishes some issues brought up in the first book. There is also further character development, which is what I think made that book so spectacular - you believe in the characters. They seem like everyday people that you can see yourself meeting. Brianna Concannon the book's heroine is truly a woman that I admire. She is strong, capable, cool as ice, but passionate about the people that she love.

Another thing that makes Robert's book so interesting is her clever and snappy dialogue. Through out the book, I kept thinking to myself, "I can see her saying that", or "I can't believe she said that!", and sometimes the romantic dialogue just puts a smile on my face. Every time I am reading the book, my boyfriend would ask me, "what are you smiling at?". The romance scenes in this novel is HOT! Yet it's not trashy or too explicit, which leaves plenty to the imaginations!

Although I love the first book, Born in Fire, I think the plot of Born in Ice was better and more believable. I also like Brianna's character a lot. She was sort of a mystery in the first one but you will get to know her better in the second book.

After reading only three of Robert's novel, I am already a fan. If you've read her recent book, Jewels of the Sun, which also takes place in Ireland, you will love the Born in series.
