This book is an accompanying book in a series called A Song of Ice and Fire.
Adara is a winter child, shunned my other children, and kept at a distance by her family. But there is one for whom she has a connection with that no one would ever believe. Ice Dragons are rare, and feared as bringers of death, but for a winter child the Ice Dragon who comes to her every winter is her friend.
No one else has ever ridden one, no one else can even touch them without freezing to death, but Adara is different. And when war arrives, it’s her Ice Dragon who risks his life to come to her, in the middle of summer to fight Fire Dragons and save her.
A Song of Ice and Fire (more commonly known as A Game of Thrones) is a series for adults, but this book is ok for younger readers, and can be read on it’s own without having to read the other books which is why I’ve put the age that I have.
