5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Sequel With More To Come 9 July 2006
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Ashes and Ice is even better than Treasures of the north wich is also a definite 5 star book. Ashes and Ice is about Grace's friend, Karen Pierce. After traveling to Alaska to help Grace escape her evil fiance, Karen restarts her quest to find her father only to find out that he's died from an epidemic. After a terrible fire ruining all of her possesions, Karen is left with nothing except Leah and Jacob Barringer who are thought to be orphans left in her care. When Jacob runs away to search for gold, a friend of Karen's father, Adrik Ivankov,offers to take her to look for Jacob. On their journey Karen and Adrik fall madly in love with eachother even though at times they try to deny it. Karen also ends up taking Grace along with her because Peter left her (momentarily) because he was frusterated at Grace for being so involved with her religion. After a while he decides to go back and find her. What I love about these books is that the subject matter is appropriate for more mature readers of a younger age. I enjoyed this book very much and I'm already reading Rivers of Gold. I would 100% reccomend this book!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Christian Fiction 11 Dec. 2003
By Rina - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is one of Tracie Peterson's best series. She makes it exciting and draws you into the book, while also having some very good parts about God and faith. These books were the first of hers I read, and they remain my favorite.
Karen, Grace, and Karen's aunt Doris are three of the most diverse characters I've seen in a book that remain fast friends. Grace is meek and shy; Karen is anxious for women to be seen as humans and have equal rights; Doris is an old spinster with a straight-forward view of life, believing in the education of women and children.
The plot of the first book, Treasures of the North, caught my attention... and held it. I have to say I didn't expect the events in the second and third books, Ashes and Ice and Rivers of Gold. Tracie Peterson weaves words like a magician, something I strive to achieve. When I'm wanting for a book to read, the Yukon Quest is one of the first I consider.

4.0 out of 5 stars a good "in-between" book... 6 May 2002
By J. Peterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book fits perfectly as the second in a trilogy. The beginning re-introduces you to the characters, and the end leaves you wanting to read the next book immediately. In between- there are disasters, secrets, and misunderstandings. Despite all of their hardships, the faith of the characters is deepened and strengthened.
These books may be formulaic, but Ms. Peterson writes very well, so the formula isn't noticed as much. The descriptions are vivid and the thoughts of the characters are written so well, I found myself slipping into the book and feeling what the characters were going through.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed the book 29 Oct. 2014
By Jennie Pendergast - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed the book. It was exciting from start to finish. It definitely took Adrik and Karen long enough to find true love for each other. Both Grace and Peter are in for some exciting news about each other when they finally meet up again. That's why I'm looking forward to the next book. Miranda has exciting adventure to look forward to as well. I hope Grace will end up finding out about her inheritance. Good Riddance to Martin PAXTON as well he was a really bad man. I know there are good things in store for Leah and Jacob Barringer I read that series before I did this one. Tracie Peterson's Alaska series have been exciting books. I also hope Crispin comes to the Lord as wellas for Miranda sake if not his own. If you want to read about the wilds of Alaska I recommend this book and Tracie Peterson's series on Alaska. Now on to the next book in this series.

4.0 out of 5 stars 2nd of 3 book in the series 19 Jun. 2014
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First book was good enough to make me purchase 2 and 3. Total story line through the books was very interesting, would like to see #4 someday. Only criticism was that as the series progressed, so did the preaching and bible quotes. Seemed like author was reaching to fill pages instead of developing the characters a bit more. I appreciate christian literature which is why I bought them, but was overdone in volume 2 and 3.
