I read the book Ice. It is a modern version of the Norwegian fairytale "East o' the Sun, West o' the Moon". I loved it. At first I was completely weirded out but I got into the flow of the book and it was amazing. A girl named Cassie has always been told by her grandmother that her mother was the daughter of the North Wind and the Polar Bear King had kidnapped her to bring her to him so one day Cassie's mother would be his bride. In that story things went wrong and her mother was blown away to the Troll Castle beyond the ends of the earth. And now on Cassie's 18th birthday all she knows will be questioned and she will decide between leaving hr mother or saving her at the price of being Polar Bear King's wife.
