cj Sez: Let me start out by saying I love action/adventure stories and mysteries, but perhaps I love historical fiction mysteries a bit more—Death in the Time of Ice incorporates all of those genres. I love it when an author expertly accomplishes the necessary world building, that sense of place that must accompany vivid and dimensional characterizations to keep my interest, and Kaye George does a superb job in this novel.
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I picked this book to review and was very pleasantly surprised. This novel is not a journalistic rehash of Neanderthal life in the midst of the Ice Age. Kaye George’s story includes all the events you could expect find in a modern-day mystery. It’s about murder, political intrigue, rejection, and love.
The story is about Enga Dancing Flower’s desire and struggle to be wholly accepted as a faithful and trusted member of her community. During her pursuit, Enga doesn’t shy away from the challenges of a hard life.
I enjoyed this coming of age story in the time of ice…it was never boring. The cover was appropriate to the title and well done. I highly recommend Death in the Time of Ice to other readers.
