Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch

What a wonderful Fantasy themed cover! 

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, and serving her kingdom 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.

Sara Raasch’s debut fantasy is a lightning-fast tale of loyalty, love, and finding one’s destiny.


I am already in love!!! Lately, I loved reading Young Adult Fantasy and this one sounds so fantastic that I can barely wait to read it. I expect romance, kick ass characters and lots of magic and fantasy!! October please come faster!

Before I even read the synopsis: OHHHHH GIMME GIMME GIMME *drooling over cover*

After reading the synopsis: HECK. YES. I need it now! Balzer + Bray is one of my favorite publishers right now; I haven’t disliked a single book I’ve read from them. Why is it not October?

Wow, that does sound great. October seems like forever from now, but it will be right around the corner. I thought this was the year of Sci-Fi but all I’m seeing is fantasy. I’m not complaining, just stating the facts!!
