Publisher's Summary

After being kicked out of college due to false claims of plagiarism, Jason's life has taken a turn for the worse. Swamped with student loans and unable to pay rent, he is literally at his wit's end when he meets Guy Winters. Everything about Guy is fascinating: his lifestyle, his appearance, his generosity. So when Jason faces potential homelessness, he agrees to move in, but it isn't long before he realizes that Guy seems different. He's vague about where he works, the temperature is always freezing in his home, and his touch renders Jason breathless beyond what any passion should.

After a home invasion leaves a man dead, a horrifying truth comes to life. Guy isn't human, and another of his kind is in Austin, leaving trail of bodies in its wake that frames both men for murder. With Jason's fingerprints in the apartment and a gunshot that will have sent the police department scrambling, there's no time to explain. The only thing they can do is run.

    "Enjoyable"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Definitely! I enjoyed both the story and the narrator


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I think the book is fine as it is


    What about Joel Leslie’s performance did you like?

    I thought he did well portraying all the characters in their own way


    Do you think His Touch of Ice needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes. I would love to see more of what happens.


    Any additional comments?

    I have to say there was one point where I actually laughed pretty hard. And it wasn't even intentional. It was an editing error with the audiobook. The narrator messes up a line about 2/3 of the way in and he stops and says "Oh my GOD I can't..." Then he starts the line over and gets it correct. But still that one burst of annoyance was so unexpected it made me laugh.

    **A free copy of the book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review**

    "Very entertaining, a great story"
    What made the experience of listening to His Touch of Ice the most enjoyable?

    how easy it was to get involved on the story, also how easy was to undestand what was going on. English is not my first lenguage and i was able to undestand it well enough, i didn't get lost on who was talking since the change of voive was very clear.


    What did you like best about this story?

    the plot, it was very unexpected, full of twists and action


    Which scene was your favorite?

    there wasn't one, there were severa of favorite scenesl, mostly the ones when a major plot twist was explain, like the moment before they runaway or when Guy explain some stuffs to Jason but I'm not going to say more to leave the review free from spoilers


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes, but i didn't have the time so ot took me a while. When i could i try to listen to as long as possible.


    Any additional comments?

    Yes, it was a great plot and i will be looking for a sequel becuase i want to know what will happend next.

    "Awesome Narrator!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of His Touch of Ice to be better than the print version?

    The narrator was really good at changing his voice to match the characters, and probably more creative about it than I would have been reading it to myself.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the lore of the Kaldr.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I enjoyed the parts when Jason and Guy were on the run.

    "Great paranormal adventure"

    I was given a free audiobook copy by the author. It was quite a good paced adventure story. Guy is Kaldr, an ancient race of ice people who can 'glamour' humans into doing what he wants. Jason meets Guy when life has been hard and he is about to be homeless. Before they could really connect Jason's bad luck hits again and they get caught up in someone killing people and leaving them frozen, you get the gist.
    I liked the story it kept me interested and the twists and turns worked well. The only thing was the narrator had a mellow tone which I felt didn't always suit 'escape' scenes, but overall it was great.

    Any additional comments?

    This story turned out to be so much better than I though it would be! Love, betrayal, survival, violence, sacrifice. I hope part two of this story comes out soon.

    The description of the Kelder was absolutely beautiful! I hope the ext book has an image of her on the cover with Guy and Jason.
    Awesome story!

    And Joel Leslie knows he's my shinning star! ⭐️💫

    "Great story and narration"

    I really enjoyed this paranormal listen. Initial;y it starts out with Jason picking up Guy in a bar to just have a one night stand. Then the story morphs into a story about how Jason's life is going to hell in a hand basket and Guy tries to help him out. Then it morphs again into the paranormal action/ adventure / mystery propelling Jason into Guy's world; which is based in Nordic legend. It kept me riveted to my earphones with the twists and turns. Granted, there were a few TSTL moments and sappy romantic declaratiosn, but that didn't take away from the enjoyment for me and I loved the drama. My main issue is whether to read the next book or wait for the audio version; because Joel Leslie really puts in a great performance.

    Story
    "Just different enough to be intriguing"
    What did you love best about His Touch of Ice?

    Honestly, the narration. I love the different voices and tones Leslie uses when conveying a story. I must say that the story itself is just different enough to be intriguing.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I was very interested in the Kaldr and why Guy fled.
    Jason's story, not so much.


    Which character – as performed by Joel Leslie – was your favorite?

    Amadeo, one of Guy's fathers.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and I did.


    Any additional comments?

    There were a lot of holes in the story, many times when it didn't flow well from one chapter to the next. But Leslie still managed to capture my attention and hold it from start to finish. I really like stories where the vampire like race, the Kaldr or the cold ones, feed off something other than blood. Sexual energy is very powerful, and I love it when an author can bring that into the story and make it believable.

    "Interesting but not best narrator"

    The story is interesting with an new paranormal race and an entirely new take On werewolfs. So that part i enjoyed very much. Also, the armish feel of the community that the kaldr lives in is an interesting idea. All in all the Universe the author created is very Well thought off. That being Said i would have liked the author to expand the story and i get that the first part where the MCs meet is just an intro to the rest of the story, but i still Think it should have been longer with more Build up to both the murders in the City and relationship between the MCs. It would have been a good tease if the human senses something "wrong" for a while instead of only one Day between moving in and being On the run. I almost Got the feel i was listening to the abridged version, which is a shame when the story idea otherwise is very good. And i do Think the narrator is wrong for this story - he is not exactly bad but his voice does not portrait the range of emotions the High adrenalin scenes should and i Think he detractes from the overall feel that is surposed to be a part of the scenes.

    "GET THE MAN SOME WATER"

    This book was ok, I couldn't get past the narrators voice he sounded like that preacher Joel Osteen and sometimes it sounded like he needed water,which kind of distracted me from the story. also the end seems like it's setting up for a part 2, it was like it stopped at the best part so needless to say I was very disappointed.
