Summary

Summary

A New York Times Bestseller

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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Snow like Ashes is a thrilling story with unforgettable characters set in a stunning fantasy world that had me quickly turning pages. I want more!” Morgan Rhodes, New York Times bestselling author
“Raasch’s debut takes readers on an adventure to a time where seasons were kingdoms and magic ran free. Strong, dynamic protagonist Meira will captivate readers from the first page and have them eagerly awaiting the next title in this saga.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
“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…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.” Publishers Weekly
“The plot and writing are superlative...Highly recommended.” School Library Journal
“A carefully crafted fantasy grapples with intense issues…This heavy high fantasy manages moments of humor and beauty for a satisfying read.” Kirkus Reviews
