I love the puzzle. Simply forced with: disc.+, +, R sac, Q sac, #.

I think this puzzle is bogus. Black is up in material and should take the bishop with its queen and do a queen exchange if white is willing. Then Black has 2 rooks, a knight, and a bishop to white's two rooks.
if the black queen takes the bishop, then white queen takes at g7 for the mate...hence puzzle = NOT bogus:)
Holy Ice-cycles SnowMan...The Ice Queen Sacs herself for her King only after a Discovery + and Her fellow Ice Rook Sacs himself all in the frozen death mate of the Black King.
hmm very nice
I think this covers all of the lines available - they all take a maximum of 5 moves, including those shown earlier with 1...Nh7 and 1...Bh6
Great job! There were a couple of quicker mates in your lines though. On 1...Bh6 2. Rxh6+ Qh7 3. Qg7#. Also on 1...Nh5 2. Qxh5+ Kg8 3. Qh8+ Kf7 4. Qxg7#. Thanks again.
Magnitician puzzle. Took me a couple of minutes to solve it. Thanks chess.com
Changing the angle of the bishop attack is fatal for the black king
