"A magical world where singing is everything... The Ice Castle is a must for young adult fiction collections, highly recommended." -- Midwest Book Review

"There are puzzles to solve, traitors to catch, and friendships to forge. This is a well-written, thoughtful fantasy book that addresses issues of equality while providing interesting musical insights. Besides, it's a great adventure!" -- Teresa Bateman, Keen Readers

"With exquisite language and a sense of humor, Pendred Noyce deftly creates complex characters and imaginative, yet believable, towns and societies...Ice Castle is a beautiful symphony in which Ivan, Daphne, and Lila face various challenges and come to learn about themselves, one another, and human nature. This beautifully orchestrated book will delight and captivate readers of all ages." -- Denise LeBlanc, Director of Learning Experiences, The Discovery Museums

"THE ICE CASTLE, the second book in the Lexicon Adventures series, has many necessary ingredients that would entice young readers, i.e. adventure, fantasy, family members who don't get along, social commentary and a unique emphasis on music. Young adults will recognize that it reflects the real world they live in and will be able to see the social implications." -- Compass Book Ratings, 4 stars

"There are plenty of adventures, and there are great new characters... An attempt to explain musical scale comes closer to clarifying that brutal arcana than anything written since the days of Palestrina. Once again, conversation and cooperation are brazenly encouraged. In the end, our heroes succeed in bringing Lila back to the 'real' world, where Aunt Adelaide is recovering from surgery that may give her a chance, and where Aunt Leonora is confronted with a newly confident Lila. The whole thing ends on a wistful, hopeful note and the promise of at least one more adventure in Lexicon." -- Open Letters Monthly
