    Kenyon is highly original

    Ms Kenyon is very skilled in developing a world you can believe in. Although it took me a few chapters to get into this book, it was an excellent read. This book borders a bit more on the fantasy side of sci-fi, but still very credible.

    Great Book

    This book has a great plot and excellent character development. It is about a group of would be emigrants returning to the Earth after failing to find a suitable planet elsewhere. The problem is that the Earth is being consumed by an ever-expanding growth of ice that threatens to encompass the entire planet. The most interesting aspect is how the environment (the 'ice') is both a realm and also a character of sorts. The ice has allies and enemies, although their interests are often at odds with each other.

    Maximum Ice will provide maximum fun to fans of science fiction

    For star road ship mother Zoya Kundara the circuitous journey from and back to earth last 250 years. She is the only original crew member still alive. However, the years of radiation while seeking a planetary haven has led to a barren population unable to reproduce itself. Since no planet was found, the shrinking desperate crew return to Earth praying that the plague that sent them solar finally ended. Though there has been no communication with earth in most of the time since they left, the star road crew have good reason to believe the plague is gone since ten thousand years have passed in earth time. <P>The Earth has dramatically changed as a quasi crystal defying the laws of physics dominates much of the surface. After a deadly first encounter with a cannibal witch queen, Zoya goes forward as an envoy to the apparent power, the ice nuns. Though Zoya seeks peace, the ice nuns and an enigmatic ally attuned to the ice like substance plan to destroy the space travelers and use their technology for personal gain. <P> Maximum Ice will provide maximum fun to fans of science fiction. The story line is loaded with action and several exciting subplots that cleverly tie back to the main trunk of the tale. The characters, including the enigmatic ice, seem genuine and earth a realistic cold, foreboding planet. Kay Kenyon allows her vivid imagination to go wild, but places her concepts into a cohesive, powerful novel that will send subgenre fans leaping for other creations by this talented author. <P>Harriet Klausner
