Always watching, always waiting…Kell has always dreamed of the world beyond the Enclave and imagined a life of freedom where he could choose his own path.Yet the Enclave is safe and harmonious. Ruled by the All Mother, it has protected the Community from the endless frozen dark and from the fury of the Ice Demon for thousands of years. Those living in the Enclave are led to believe that the All Mother is a benevolent and worldly leader who would never let Kell or any of her people come to harm.But Kell is restless and stifled by the doctrines of the Enclave. He wonders what lies outside this world and begins to ask questions. Too many questions. Dangerous questions. The teachings of the All Mother are sacred and to doubt her is treacherous. Even his beloved friend Shamra thinks he should silence his thoughts of escape for his own protection. There are people watching, knowing and hearing all the time.Soon Kell hears whispers of a rebellion against the All Mother. Whispers of liberation. Whispers of possibility. To be disconnected could be a dream, or a nightmare. Kell realises there is only one way to find out.Ice is a mesmerising adventure of a mythical world locked in snow and ice. It is a troubling vision of a future that has succumbed to a new ice age where some dare to dream of a new beginning.
