Publisher's Summary

The Ice Queen: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!*

From the best-selling author of The Rules of Magic, a miraculous, enthralling tale of a woman who is struck by lightning and finds her frozen heart is suddenly burning.

Be careful what you wish for. A woman who was touched by tragedy as a child now lives a quiet life, keeping other people at a cool distance. She even believes she wants it that way. Then one day, she utters an idle wish and, while standing in her house, is struck by lightning. But instead of ending her life, this cataclysmic event sparks a strange and powerful new beginning. 

She goes in search of Lazarus Jones, a fellow survivor who was struck dead, then simply got up and walked away. Perhaps this stranger who has seen death face-to-face can teach her to live without fear. When she finds him, he is her perfect opposite, a burning man whose breath can boil water and whose touch scorches. As an obsessive love affair begins between them, both hide their most dangerous secrets - what happened in the past that turned one to ice and the other to fire.

A magical story of passion, loss, and renewal, The Ice Queen is Alice Hoffman at her electrifying best.

*Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

Extremely distracting background music

I love Alice Hoffman’s work and read everything she writes, but I found this new book track where the reader has background music playing throughout the entire book, to be extremely distracting. I tried 4x to get past the first chapter, but I found all I could focus on was waiting hopefully for the music to end. I had to discard this one with reading -much to my disappointment . Audible should make the music optional as it truly ruined my listening experience.
