#BookReview of Snow Like Ashes by @seesarawrite


Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes, #1)


About the Book: 

A heartbroken girl. A fierce warrior. A hero in the making.

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, raised by the Winterians’ general, Sir. Training to be a warrior—and desperately in love with her best friend, and future king, Mather — she would do anything to help her kingdom 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. Finally, she’s scaling towers, fighting enemy soldiers, just as she’s always dreamed she would. But the mission doesn’t go as planned, and Meira soon finds 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. Her debut YA fantasy, SNOW LIKE ASHES, the first in a trilogy, came out October 14, 2014 from Balzer + Bray. It does not feature her hand-drawn pictures.

My Review: I can't believe it took me so long to read this! This book was an amazing novel which I will not be forgetting for a long time. I was a little overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information in this book. There is just so much to remember. There were moments where I was unsure on where the story was going but I can assure you that these moments were soon followed by lots surprises and amazement. Meira was such a fabulous main character. Her awesomeness was so exciting! I was literally cheering her on through the whole book. I really enjoyed her love interest, Theron. He is exactly my kind of prince. I can’t wait to read the second installment because I can’t wait to see what happens next!!!

Do I Recommend this book? Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeees!!
