by K.T. Munson and Nichelle Rae
Fire and Frost; no two nations have ever been so divided. Only two bridges across the great River Gora connects them and their long standing hatred. When spring comes early, the Frost Nation looks upon the Fire Nation with suspicion. Soon they will discover that the rising rivers, warmer temperatures, and the earthquakes are all a result of something far more terrifying then each other. When the world seems to turn against them they will only have each other to look to. Can they put their differences aside long enough to fix their planet? They must or face extinction.
EXCERPTS (Exclusive Excerpt):
Clutching her cloak tighter at her throat as she reached the top of the iceberg, Thea looked at the endless cold white that surrounded her, and at that moment, she hated everything.
“Hey,” a deep voice said.
Thea looked up and saw the Frost Knight making his way down some crevasses and pillars of the iceberg and coming toward her. His eyes were dark and his expression lifeless. Thea clenched her teeth, seeing he was very lightly clothed while she was doing everything she could not to shiver in several layers. He didn’t even have gloves on!
“My name is Kirill,” he said, stepping up to her. He was tall, almost intimidatingly so. Thea came up only to his chin.
“I know who you are,” she replied shortly.
Kirill pressed his lips together in annoyance. “And you are?”
She almost didn’t want to tell him, but figured he might need her name over the next month. “Thea,” she said abruptly.
He nodded once. “The basic signals you’re going to need to know are, ‘Shallow Port,’ which means we’re entering shallow water on the left side. ‘Shallow Starboard,’ which means…”
“Let me guess, shallow water on the right side,” Thea said flatly. “There’s also ‘shallow water ahead,’ which means we need to adjust our course into deeper waters. Lastly, ‘trouble a vast,’ which means something is wrong. Am I right?” Kirill’s jaw started working and Thea locked her eyes on his. “I have sailed before. We have an ocean and a river, just like you do.”
Thea saw Kirill’s lip twitch. “The iceberg is about four miles under the surface of the ocean, so depths—”
“So depths greater than four and a half miles, no less, are safe to pass through,” Thea finished for him and glared. “I’m not a simpleton, you know. I can read your Queen’s instructions that she sent.” Thea wanted off this iceberg right now. She turned away to head back down the stairs to her boat so she could be brought to one of the ships pushing the back.
Behind her, Kirill sighed heavily. “More insolent than I imagined.”
Thea’s head spun around, looking at him with wide eyes. “Excuse me?” She stalked back toward him. “What did you just say to me?” Kirill didn’t respond, his face remaining impassive as she stepped up to him. “Let’s get one thing straight, you are not my commanding officer. I don’t answer to you, you got that?”
Kirill glared at her. “You may not answer to me, but you will listen to me if you want to survive this trip.” His eyes traveled over her warmly bundled form with disgust. “You’re clearly going to need all the help you can get.”
Thea’s heart raced with rage, and she held up a finger at him. “Keep talking, frost flake, and I’ll pitch you right into the ocean.”
His eyes narrowed and became dangerous as he brought his face down closer to hers. “The ocean won’t kill me…”
