Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Goodreads Synopsis: Britt Pfeiffer has trained to backpack the Teton Range, but she isn't prepared when her ex-boyfriend, who still haunts her every thought, wants to join her. Before Britt can explore her feelings for Calvin, an unexpected blizzard forces her to seek shelter in a remote cabin, accepting the hospitality of its two very handsome occupants—but these men are fugitives, and they take her hostage.
In exchange for her life, Britt agrees to guide the men off the mountain. As they set off, Britt knows she must stay alive long enough for Calvin to find her. The task is made even more complicated when Britt finds chilling evidence of a series of murders that have taken place there... and in uncovering this, she may become the killer’s next target.
But nothing is as it seems in the mountains, and everyone is keeping secrets, including Mason, one of her kidnappers. His kindness is confusing Britt. Is he an enemy? Or an ally?

Black Ice is a book that I've heard so many people become excited for when it first released so I put it on my tbr in hopes that I would get around to it soon. Once people started to read it and give it somewhat bad reviews, it definetly made me think twice about reading it. That is until I seen it in my library. I decided to just see what this book was about for myself, and I'm actually glad that I did.
The beginning of this book was somewhat enjoyable, but I started to lose interest quickly because of the two main female characters, Britt and Korbie. Korbie gave me a complete headache and Britt was just annoying to the point where I can't really pinpoint an exact moment that annoyed me the most. Even then I kept reading on, and took a few days break when I got to the middle of the book when the two girls where in the mountains. This portion dragged on for so long with hardly anything happening and I was so tempted to just not finish the book because there was nothing exciting happening. But I guess the break I took from this book gave me the drive to complete it since I was more than half way through, and I'm glad that I did!
The ending of this book took such a wonderful turn that I was shocked and excited to see how everything ended, although I did have a theory of who the murderer was. I do think that people should give Black Ice a shot and see how they feel, because even though I pratically despised this book in the beginning, my feelings compeletly changed all because of the last 100 or so pages.
Final Verdict: 3 Stars
