Librarian Book Review: Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch

Meira is one of the few free Winterians left after her kingdom was captured when she was a baby 16 years ago. She longs to fight to free the captive people of Winter and to restore their prince to the throne. In a world ruled by magic and politics, Meira begins to realize that she is a pawn in a much larger game, and that her destiny isn't what she thought it would be.​

​Like many fantasy novels this one has a lot of world building and it takes a while for you to get used to the world Raasch has created. Meira is a fighter. She is strong, determined, and more than a little rash. She longs to prove herself, and free her people. In some ways this novel was predictable--as a saw the ending coming. Still it is a well written and entertaining fantasy for those who love books like Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. 

Cautions for Sensitive Readers:
Violence: Definitely
Sex: Vague references
Language: None
Drugs/Alcohol: Mild
