paradoxdreamer  Heart of Ice 1.jpg

The daughter of a cheating husband and his mistress, Mina shields herself behind a mask of frigid indifference. She thinks of love as a weakness, refusing to become a victim of its influence.

Oliver was given the ultimatum by his ruthless

matriarch: Choose a life of luxury or to follow his heart into an unforgiving world. However, what was meant to be happily ever after ended in tragedy,

leaving him a broken man.

Fate guides two lives who are about to cross paths, their future shrouded in uncertainty. 

In the depths of winter’s desolate landscape,

a heartbeat begins to sound.

Music often inspires scenes, helps mold the tone of a narrative, and in some cases, defines a character.

 

What follows is a collection of songs that are the soundtrack to this novel.

This is the theme song for Mina. It reflects her strength and independence. In the opening of the movie she is starting her day as the audience gets some insight to her day to day life. At one point, she's dancing with a man, having a romantic interlude in her mind, before snapping out of her distracted thoughts.

This reflects the duality of Mina as she struggles with being independent while yearning to connect with someone. The song plays with the concept of being this strong, powerful figure. Yet, they are asking for this person in their life not to leave, to give them a chance. This is her connection with Oliver.

Mina earns herself the title of the Ice Queen. She represents a powerful woman, someone who is in control of her life, won't allow anyone to control her, and is someone who demands respect. She fears that being vulnerable, letting someone into her life romantically, may strip her of that strength.

This is a reflection of Mina's feelings in that she wants to be more emotional, connect with others, but is afraid to do so. The lyrics speak of someone who would do these things if they didn't have to fear being hurt. That fear of vulnerability, choosing to shut off that part of herself led to her heart of ice.

This song inspired a "deleted" scenario that does not occur in the novel but would be ideal visually for a movie or television series based off the book. This will add to the experience for the visual representation of the book. Learn more about this new addition below under the "Bonus Scene" section of this page.

Mina Kensington

Played by:
 
Perdita Weeks

She can properly embody Mina's fierce personality when the audience is first introduced to her. As Mina develops into the woman she wants to be, Perdita has proven that she can reveal this gradual change. She is able to express so much emotional depth with a look in her eyes or a flicker of a smile.

Victoria

Played by:
 
Aubrey Plaza

She has the talent to play a threatening woman in a subtle way. Combine this with her ability to come across as inviting, kind, and a much more gentle person, but then shift instantly to a cruel individual is ideal for who she will represent. She can allow both sides of Victoria to surface when interacting with others.

Bonus Scene: Not Found In Book

In a movie/television presentation of Heart of Ice, the final scene is not the one in the book. The setting is at a karaoke stage with Mitch performing the song "Done with Love" as mentioned earlier on this page. The camera pans out to someone watching the events going on inside through a window. Someone that the audience will be introduced to in the next book. Hoven is watching in curiosity, a smile parting his lips because he loves music. He turns away, putting in his headphones before shoving his hands in his pockets and walks past the building. A hint of things to come in Queen's Court.
