The Lovereading4Kids comment
Highly Commended for the Teenage Book Prize 2010. 15 year old Thora is a slave to Bjorn, a brutish Viking chieftain, but she’s also a healer and has visions of the future - a future that involves death, lies, hardship and danger. When she correctly predicts the death of Bjorn she must escape before she’s implicated and she does so with another slave who is destined to be part of her future. Their destination is the uncharted land of fire and ice – Iceland. The author’s previous two novels, Between Two Seas and The Lady in the Tower were both met with great critical acclaim and many fans.

Daughter of Fire and Ice by Marie-Louise Jensen
Following an attack on her family, fifteen-year-old Thora is enslaved by a brutish Viking chieftain, Bjorn Svanson. A healer and a midwife, Thora is valuable. She also has visions of the future ...and in one she foresees Svanson's death. When her prediction becomes reality, Thora recognizes that another of Svanson's slaves is a man she has seen before-a man from recurrent visions who is destined to be part of her future. Assuming Svanson's identity, the slave and Thora use the dead man's ships to escape. Their destination is Iceland, the then uncharted 'land of fire and ice'. To succeed they must first win over Svanson's crew, and their journey is fraught with hardship and danger. But their troubles are only just beginning. Soon, newcomers are among them and someone is stealing from Thora's medicines to cause terrible harm. Under suspicion herself, can Thora unmask the real culprit and clear her name? And can Thora and the man now known as Bjorn ever really hope that their pasts won't catch up with them?
'a fast moving thriller with a sprinkling of fantasy and Nordic teenage angst, all of which make for an enticing variation on the theme of dark, forbidden love'
