2 - 2.5 stars
I loved Sarah Beth Durst's Into the Wild and the sequel, but Ice was not quite as good. Enchanted Ivy has a few good sections, but is overall just lacking. The characters just do not come alive and the magical aspect of the world is not explored at any length and the themes that are there just are not followed up on. It was so easy to call the bad guy and the romance? Not feeling the soulmate vibe there. At. All. And while there are certainly an abundance of amazing descriptions of Princeton, which Sarah lovingly and magically portrays, that alone is not enough to make this book enjoyable.
I would not personally recommend it, but I am really looking forward to Sarah's next work, Drink, Slay, Love!
