But when she is lost in a strange blizzard, Anyu finds herself in a world of creatures, spirits, and magic that she has only heard of in legends. Lead by her mysterious guide Kano, Anyu searches for a way back home. But before she can leave, she will have to discover the truth about herself and the land she calls home. What has Anyu's tribe been keeping hidden? What is her connection to this strange new world?

And what are the secrets hidden beneath the ice?

Very nice first chapter in which you reveal a unique setting; I felt cold just reading it. :P I'm intrigued by the supernatural element you introduce, though I'm left slightly confused by it. Though I'm sure it gets explained more in the story to come. :-)

Wow. This is Awesome. Your descriptions are flawless. I was transported into a magical world filled with fascinating characters and monsters! Great job!
A very interesting opening! I think you could extend your sentences more (as someone has said previously) and I would have liked to see a bit more of a struggle, too. Otherwise, I’m really interested and definitely reading on!, let’s see what happens next

I love this! One of my stories is set in a kind of Ice Age environment, so it was cool to see this! I'm drawn to anything icy/cold now because of my own story. This is really interesting so far, and I love the idea of the ijiraq.
