For generations, the noble polar bears have ruled the Northern Kingdoms. But now, their society is on the brink of collapse. A group of power-hungry bears has seized control, and darkness is creeping across the snow.

Cubs First and Second don't know any of this. Although they're twins, they couldn't be more different. First loves imagining stories, while his daring sister, Second, wants to live them.

When their mother is taken prisoner, the cubs' world falls apart. They know they have to rescue her, but how can two cubs who've barely learned to hunt survive a treacherous journey across the ice? Their only chance is to learn to trust each other and--even more important--trust themselves.

But survival is only the beginning. And soon, these two unlikely heroes find themselves at the heart of a battle unlike anything Ga'hoole has ever seen.

Booklist Review: "This first volume of Lasky's new animal fantasy series, Bears of Ice, whisks readers back to the world of Guardians of Ga'Hoole. When cub-snatching bears called Roguers come to steal polar bear Svenna's two unnamed one-year-old cubs, she trades herself for their freedom. Left with a distant cousin, the cubs quickly learn this relative will treat them harshly, and they flee. Despite near starvation and harrowing escapes, they search for their mother and their unknown father, and they name themselves the girl, Jytte, the boy, Stellan after stars in the constellation of their parents. With help from unlikely animals, the cubs make their way toward the Far North, where they face grave danger from the Roguers. Readers will lose themselves in the life-and-death adventure of the cubs and succumb to human feelings of fear, loss, and hope. Lasky's authentic frozen setting and dynamic animal characters will capture readers' imaginations and allow them to suspend reality. They'll be waiting with bated breath for the next installment.--Petty, J. B. Copyright 2017 Booklist"
