    A fabulous erotic Demon World tale

    In Midarri, Xishu Huon is a quarter-breed, which means she is considered inferior by the Yama as that 25 percent is the lowly human. She was Prince Corum¿s friend when he was a young boy, but exiled to an orphanage once her tainted blood became known and her skill to somehow caused Corum to feel emotions, a taboo amongst the Yama.------------- Years later Corum has not yet met his soulmate as his eyes remain non black when the eyes turn, the Yama knows they have found their beloved. His royal parents worry for him so they encourage their offspring to accept a woman for his sexual pleasure and education. Corum has become known as the PRINCE OF ICE for obvious reasons, but he melts when he sees Xishu. As it becomes apparent that they are soulmates, adversaries continue Machiavellian plots to destroy the royals with Xishu their expendable pawn.------------ PRINCE OF ICE is a fabulous erotic Demon World tale (humans call the Yama demons) that grips readers once Xishi and Corum meet as young adults and never slows down (even for sexual encounters). Readers will enjoy this paranormal gender changing Roman Holiday with strong intrigue undercurrent as the Prince and the tainted commoner fall in love.--------------- Harriet Klausner

    Erotic with a capital E

    Holly definitely has a grasp of detail when it comes to "hot" subjects. The setting and plot were interesting as well. Every now and then I had to adjust to her mix of genres with this book, as periodism and futuristic content came together as unexpected "normalacy". However, the erotic thread throughout this whole book kept me reading!

    Plot from the back of the book

    If anyone's interested, here's the plot printed on the back of the book:
    "Humans like to call them demons, but the yama are and old and civilized race--far too civilized to fraternize with lesser beings, a view the highborn among them adhere to most stringently. It is only through plots and subterfuge that a quarter-human infant, one Xishi Huon, infiltrates a princely household. There she is raised side by side with Corum, the Midarri heir, whose own peculiarities make her his soul mate...at least until the whispers of their unnatural fondness lead her to be banished to an orphanage.
    Coming of age as a courtesan, Xishi excels in the erotic arts. But when Corum becomes her new owner, the relationship will test the limits of her gifts. Corum is the Prince of Ice now and not the sensitive boy she knew. If he succumbs to the temptations of ther human touch, their bond will defy every convention his kind holds dear. If he doesn't, his uncontrollable sexual needs might drive them both insane. Neither suspects what is happening behind the scenes, that the very plots that brought them together could end up costing them their lives."

    I really liked this book. Read it!!

    This book is another good addition to this series.

    Although each book can be read as a stand alone I think it helps to read all the series just for more info. This book has great character development starting with the two main characters as childhood friends. They are separated and both go through many trials before meeting back up as adults. I don't want to ruin the story for anyone but these two must face some rocky time but also have a great time together. This book is pretty HOT and STEAMY!! The next book in this series has character that were developed in this book and its predessor "The Demon's Daughter" and I can't wait.

    My Opinion....

    I believe this book is a good read. I especially fell in love with the demon prince who could be both cold, yet tender at the same time with those who were dear to him. He showd a vulnerability that was sweet.

    BUYER'S REMORSE!

    I hate this book with a fiery passion. It has terrible writing, mediocre plot developement, and dismal characters. Even the sex scenes are lackluster. This book was recommended to me because I like Kresley Cole and Richelle Mead, but this is nothing like those authors. I also hate that the main female character is a prostitute. I like my romance a bit less trashy than that. Save you're money, I wish I had.

    Wonderful concept & setting

    What I really loved about the story was the unique setting and cultural details. It was definitely not what I expected but it stands out as being one of the more memorable novels I've read. I was never aware while reading it that this was part of a series and I really appreciate that. Of the books in this series that I read after this, I consider this the best. The characters are interesting including Pandhir who immediately spikes interest though his story comes later. Of course the sex scenes are steamy and plentiful which is always a positive but it's a greater positive that I remember this story for much more than that. My only wish is that there were more like this.

    Hot romance at it's best....

    Oh MY! Where to start? Synopsis. ::Excuse me while I breathe here. OK, now a sec for thinking.:: This is one of Emma's demon tales. We get a more in-depth look at the yama culture and world as seen from the highest court. Think alternate Victorian society. Intrigue, plots and murder................ We watch as Xishi Huon is conceived, raised and banished to an orphanage. As Prince Cor is born, raised and loses his best friend. We watch as Xishi is trained as a pillow girl and is sold to Prince Cor. Since you could get all of that from reading the book blurb, I'm not giving away any spoilers. What follows is a love story (of the very HOT variety! The kind Emma does so well.) ...............You'll love these two characters. They leap off the page through their emotions. You'll feel each and every one of them right along with the character. Emma will put you on slow burn starting on page one and build you to climax after climax right through to the very satisfying ending. You'll be jubilant and wrung out. And very impatient for the NEXT chapter in the lives of these characters. ............... Can I start yelling now? WOWWOWWOW!!!!! Hot enough to fry eggs and romantic enough to break your heart. Don't miss it!

    Fresh, Clever and Sinful

    This is my first time reading anything from Emma Holly and I am very impressed. Surely we will see more of this clever writers work in the near future. (Let us hope!!!) Fast paced and chock-full of elegant intrigue, surprises and moments that will have you crossing your legs, Emma Holly has created a lush new world of passionate multi-layered and purposeful characters. The refreshing sexual freedom, heat and superb complexity of the erotic/love scenes made me wish they would never end. I believe Ms. Hollys future to be very bright should she continue along this road. Kudos to you Emma. You have a new fan.

    Not what I hoped

    Prince of Ice was not at all what I hoped it would be. The romance scenes made up the entire book. If there was one scene with some plot in it, it was somehow intertwined with sex in a, most of the time some not so romantic, way. One should not read this book if you have heard of the book and like the plot. The only reason why someone should read this book is if you are sexually frustrated. You will probably not be surprised that as soon as I finished the book (even the worst book I must finish) I threw it in the nearest trash bin.
