South Pole Station, a.ka. the Butt Crack of the World, any teenager’s worst nightmare, and home to free-spirit Ionia Sonberg.
To shake up her bland, boring, stuck-on-blah life, Ionia defies her uber-controlling mother and adds a companion droid, Den, to the supply requisition. The droid’s arrival takes Ionia’s relationship with her mom from toxic to Seventh Level of Frozen Hell.
Ionia and her droid escape the station by stowing away on a cargo plane bound for Mac Town, the biggest city on the continent. But just as she reaches her destination, a terrorist attack forces her to choose between freedom and family loyalty.
Den’s primary programming dictates that he please his mistress, but accompanying Ionia across the Antarctic tundra into imminent danger does not match the definition of pleasure in any of his manuals. Yet, his greatest desire is to keep her from harm, and he’s willing to risk his very existence to ensure her safety. Whether she likes it or not.
Together they must travel over Earth’s harshest terrain to uncover a secret that may save or destroy them both.
I really enjoyed this futuristic YA novel that kept me engaged in the world of Ionia, a teenager with the worst luck. Alongside her companion, Den, the two fight the roughest terrain and the biggest challenges as they fall into a world of pure evil.
I wish that there was more of a backstory to Ionia’s life and the futuristic life she lives in. But the storyline was very intriguing and catching as to where I read the entire book in one day/sitting. It was a very different story to what you would think this book is about and it’s more of an adventure and coming of age story rather than a romance. I also found the title of the book to be very clever as Frozen Hearts is set in Antarctica and truly fit the story.
I would recommend this book to those who love a good adventure story with a few twists and a great team!
