Bears of the Ice3 títulos en la serie
Polar bears are the uncontested rulers of the Northern Kingdoms, but now their society is crumbling. Darkness creeps across the land as a group of power-hungry bears seize control. What will it take for two little cubs to survive?
Cubs First and Second should still be safe in their den, learning from their mother. But when she’s taken in a cruel act of war, these twins will do everything they can to get her back - even fight their way across the dangerous tundra. Although they’ve barely learned to hunt, First and Second know that they’ll have to make the treacherous journey across the ice to rescue her. To survive, they’ll have to learn to trust each other - and themselves. With each step - and with each following audiobook - the cubs plunge themselves further into the fray, joining the heart of a battle unlike anything Ga’hoole has ever seen.
The journey of First and Second is brought to life in the voice of Fiona Hardingham. Her gentle tone paints a picture of the arctic tundra and the bears who live there as you listen to the tale unfold. With special voices making the two cubs distinct characters, Hardingham carries the emotions of every scene with a stunning performance that will leave listeners eager to keep following the adventures of the determined cubs.
