I really like this series, that being said Ice Storm is my least favorite novel in the series. The narration was OK, I really enjoy the job Ms. Sands does in the later books and just don't enjoy the other narrators as much. This is the problem with picking a different narrator to preform different books in a series. She really had a difficult job, Killian's accent is a conglomeration of every accent ever and Isobel has an British accent except when she doesn't, like I said not an easy job.
The storyline had some minor issues with me. Going into the book I was unmotivated because I didn't feel connected to Isobel like I had with previous characters. She is complex and emotionally compartmentalized and although her background was explained in detail she didn't seem as mulch-dimensional as the other committee members had, to me. Killian also I don't feel like I really got to know, which in a weird way fits with his character. There were times in this book where it just didn't make sense to me that characters would do what they did and the motivation just didn't make sense, I had never felt this way during previous books. I did really enjoy how this plot pulled many of the other characters back into the spotlight, I really appreciated that. I would still recommend reading this book if you are following the series.
