The story of the Ice People is a moving legend of love and supernatural powers, a tale of the essential struggle between good and evil.
Sol is a powerful witch who's ruled by a dark spirit – and a young girl who has to obey her parents. Finally, the day arrives when she's fully grown and free to unleash her powers. Her life, and those of all she loves, will never be the same.
As Sol journeys through Norway and Sweden, witch hunts threaten her at every turn. But the thrill of her powers, and the sensual call of The Prince of Darkness, drive her on. The Legend of the Ice People takes a dark and dangerous twist.
