Description-

  • A striking fantasy tale of dark magic, dangerous politics, and discovering your true self—perfect for fans of Game of Thrones, An Ember in the Ashes and A Court of Thorns and Roses.

    Sixteen years ago the Kingdom of Winter was conquered and its citizens enslaved, leaving them without magic or a monarch. Now the Winterians' only hope for freedom is the eight survivors who managed to escape, and who have been waiting for the opportunity to steal back Winter's magic and rebuild the kingdom ever since.

    Orphaned as an infant during Winter's defeat, Meira has lived her whole life as a refugee. Training to be a warrior—and desperately in love with her best friend, Winter's future king—she would do anything to help Winter rise to power again.

    So when scouts discover the location of the ancient locket that can restore Winter's magic, Meira decides to go after it herself—only to find herself thrust into a world of evil magic and dangerous politics—and ultimately comes to realize that her destiny is not, never has been, her own.

About the Author-

  • Sara Raasch has known she was destined for bookish things since the age of five, when her friends had a lemonade stand and she tagged along to sell her hand-drawn picture books too. Not much has changed since then: her friends still cock concerned eyebrows when she attempts to draw things, and her enthusiasm for the written word still drives her to extreme measures. She is the New York Times bestselling author of the Snow Like Ashes series. You can visit her online at www.sararaasch.tumblr.com and @seesarawrite on Twitter.

Reviews-

  • DOGO Books angelh20 - I like this book very much. At first, the main character thinks she is only a refugee girl that doesn’t matter to her own occupied country, Snow because she has no memory about it. But she wants to be part of Snow and go on missions that will help them get back Snow. Things changed after she gets on her first mission and takes back half of the locket that was taken from the country that invade them. The locket was important to them because it once contained their magic power. Throughout the story, it only gets more and more exciting. You’ll never guess what is the main character’s real identity. After reading this book, I learn that things are always unexpected.

    In Raasch’s debut, an epic fantasy, the realm of Primoria is divided into eight countries sustained by magic governed by human political and social arrangements, accessible only by physical talismans. While this structure doesn’t promise much subtlety, Raasch builds an enjoyable adventure-romance around it. Meira is one of eight free Winterians—inhabitants of the Winter realm who survived the sacking of their capital by neighboring Spring. Other survivors are interned in work camps, while Meira’s group lives as a rebel band, seeking the two halves of their magical talisman, which will enable Winterians to tap their rightful powers and regain their kingdom. Diplomacy is as crucial to this quest as spycraft and battles. Though Meira loves Mather, heir to the Winterian throne, he offers her in alliance to the crown prince of Cordell, for whom Meira also feels a reluctant warmth. But it is her own place in this endlessly shifting world that is most important to Meira, and it’s through her slow realizations and lightning insights that Raasch’s emerging talent makes its greatest appeal. Ages 14–up. Agent: Mackenzie Brady, New Leaf Literary +

    Gr 7 Up- In classic fantasy style, Meira is a feisty orphan girl with aspirations of being a soldier for her icy province, Winter, which has been enslaved by a neighboring territory. Her weapon of choice: the chakram, or throwing circle. Meira partners with her childhood playmate, an heir to the throne, in a quest to locate the broken locket that holds the magic for their province. Meira has romantic feelings for this young man, so she is startled when it becomes apparent that she will be used as a pawn to forge a marriage alliance with another territory. As the story unfolds, the history of the provinces is revealed, magic explained, and all is not as it seems. Although the story is derivative of many before it, the plot and writing are superlative, and fans of Leigh Bardugo's Shadow and Bone (Holt, 2012) and the like will not be disappointed.-Leah Krippner, Harlem High School, Machesney Park, IL
