Goodreads Synopsis

Kai and Ginny grew up together–best friends since they could toddle around their building’s rooftop rose garden. Now they’re seventeen, and their relationship has developed into something sweeter, complete with stolen kisses and plans to someday run away together.

But one night, Kai disappears with a mysterious
stranger named Mora–a beautiful girl with a dark past and a heart of ice. Refusing to be cast aside, Ginny goes after them and is thrust into a world she never imagined, one filled with monsters and thieves and the idea that love is not enough.

If Ginny and Kai survive the journey, will she still be the girl he loved–and moreover, will she still be the girl who loved him?

Jackson Pearce, author of the acclaimed SISTERS RED and FATHOMLESS, has returned with a unique vision of Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Snow Queen,” one about power and redemption, failure and hope, and the true meaning of strength.







Why am I waiting on this book?

This is definitely a must read for me!
I love fairytale retellings!
And this particular fairytale happens
to be one of my favorites, too.
I'm waiting with bated breath to see
what Pearce does with this story!
Also, that cover is calling out to me...
The broken mirror is not only
mysterious, but also gives me a feeling
of abandonment.
The season of Winter is very
effectively evoked here,
in all its barren desolation...
(That's why we need Santa Claus
to cheer things up!)
Anyway....I'm hoping for a
happily-ever-after!





What do you think of my choice?
What fascinating books are you
waiting on this week?
