First kisses sometimes wake slumbering princesses, undo spells, and spark happily ever afters.
Mine broke Bale.
Mine broke Bale.
Seventeen-year-old Snow has spent her life locked in Whittaker Psychiatric—but she isn’t crazy. And that’s not the worst of it. Her very first kiss proves anything but innocent…when Bale, her only love, turns violent.
Despite Snow knowing that Bale would never truly hurt her, he is taken away—dashing her last hope for any sort of future in the mental ward she calls home. With nowhere else to turn, Snow finds herself drawn to a strange new orderly who whispers secrets in the night about a mysterious past and a kingdom that’s hers for the taking—if only she can find her way past the iron gates to the Tree that has been haunting her dreams.
Beyond the Tree lies Algid, a land far away from the real world, frozen by a ruthless king. And there too await the River Witch, a village boy named Kai, the charming thief Jagger, and a prophecy that Snow will save them all.
Thank you Bloomsbury for providing me with a copy of Stealing Snow at BEA. This in no way affected my opinion in my review.
Stealing Snow is not just a retelling it is a masterpiece in its own right. A world of frozen beauty and creatures with vivid detail. I am swooning over this story. Heat and fire meet snow and ice. Snow is stuck in a modern world assylum as the story starts and soon she finds out she is not meant for that world.
She is taken to a world of snow and ice by Jagger. Can I just say I love Jagger. His character is standoffish but not when it comes to Snow. This story had magical snow creatures. Disfunctional family dynamics that have you saying no wonder she was in an asylum I would be too if this was my family.
Stealing Snow is an adventure out of this world and if you thought Frozen was a masterpiece then you need to read Stealing Snow cause this story is breathtaking and is one of my favorite retellings of all time. The vivid visuals had me wanting to stop everything and sketch the images in my mind. Not many books draw me in that deep. This is a must read with many twists and turns that will leave you gasping.
