Burn brightly. Love fiercely. For all else is dust. Every child of Glasnith learns the last words of Aillira, the god-gifted mortal whose doomed love affair sparked a war of gods and men, and Lira of clan Stone knows the story better than most. As a descendant of Aillira and god-gifted in her own right, she has the power to read people's souls, to see someone's true essence with only a touch of her hand. When a golden-haired warrior washes up on the shores of her homeland--one of the fearful marauders from the land of the Frozen Sun--Lira helps the wounded man instead of turning him in. After reading his soul, she realizes Reyker is different than his brethren who attack the coasts of Glasnith. He confides in her that he's been cursed with what his people call battle-madness, forced to fight for the warlord known as the Dragon, a powerful tyrant determined to reignite the ancient war that Aillira started. As Lira and Reyker form a bond forbidden by both their clans, the wrath of the Dragon falls upon them and all of Glasnith, and Lira finds herself facing the same tragic fate as her ancestor. The battle for Lira's life, for Reyker's soul, and for their peoples' freedom has only just begun ...… (mere)

I always love stories of vikings and dragons

*Thank you to the publisher for sending me an ARC to review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.*

I received an ARC through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

Beasts of the Frozen Sun is the first in a new fantasy trilogy about a girl touched by the gods, and a boy who is supposed to be her enemy.

I love books inspired by mythology and playing with gods, and I loved the narrative in this book around the two different stories about what happened so many years ago. Which god is the hero, and which is the villain? Which one of them is the traitor? And how does the mortal woman the gods love play into all of this?

That being said, there was one thing that stuck with me and became more and more impossible to ignore: the most important women in this book other than the main character are a dead mother and a dead ancestor. Almost everything Lira does is motivated by her brothers, her father, her uncle, the enemy warlord, the male gods warring over her, the boy she finds on the beach, or the boy who was her childhood love. She has a best friend who had potential, and a few other (god-gifted) women appearing here and there, but at the end of the day, Lira is defined by the men in her life. She only realises her life matters when she is useful to Reykel, and even at the end, she claims she belongs to him.

You could argue that Reykel also belongs to her, and that this is part of their star-crossed fated love story, and that's fine - but that doesn't explain the others. Moreover, all this happens in a world soaked in misogyny, full of barbaric, violent men who steal and rape and threaten women. I know this is nothing new in mainstream fantasy, but every time a writer creates a whole new magical world, then goes and fills it with the same stale bigotry, my heart dies a little.

Overall, if you're not yet sick of heteronormative, misogynistic fantasy worlds, you might enjoy this more than I did - the plotline with the gods and Lira's gift is actually nice. But the number of sacrifised and fridged and sidelined and nonexistent women was just too much for me, personally. ( )
