by Cheryl Madeleine Lodico The Transylvanian mountainside provides a regal setting for The Ice Princess Trilogy, three charming tales about Princess Deidre, known as the Ice Princess, and her eccentric family. The Ice Princess and the Iguana introduces us to Ignescent, the stray iguana who captures the heart of Deidre, a young princess who has more ice than blood in her veins. In Alexandria, Daughter of the Ice Princess, Deidres nine-year-old daughter struggles against her bizarre destiny. Deidres niece, Laurianna, shows her grandparents the value of scientific knowledge, logic, and faith in The Laurient Express. A trio of fairy tales with a refreshing twist, The Ice Princess Trilogy is guaranteed to provide escape into an unusual world where nothing is really what it seems.
