"Ashes and Ice, book two in the Yukon Quest series, certainly puts the reader right in the heart of the gold rush scene with believable dialogue and struggles against more than the elements." ---RT Book Reviews --This text refers to the MP3 CD edition.

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.
Karen suffers a great loss and has to decide what to do next. She decides the only thing to do is to head north to the goldfields to find Jacob. With the help of Adrik Ivanov goes with them as their guide but he also has a hidden quest behind the journey.
Peter gets awful news and heads north to investigate but it's too late in the season to actually head north into the goldfields. So he has to wait out the winter with the awful news.
Tracie does a wonderful job in continuing the story of Grace and Karen in this book. Sometimes it's hard to continue a series with such a complex story line. Hopefully the next book will be just as good.
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.
