Hey Book Worms!
Today I decided to review another fairytale retelling this week, and it is a retelling of the Snow Queen. Winter’s Child by Cameron Dokey, is an updated retelling that tells the story of the Snow Queen for a new generation.
The book description was taken from the Goodreads website:
“Once Upon a Time” is Timeless
Free-spirited Grace and serious Kai are the best of friends. They grew up together listening to magical tales spun by Kai’s grandmother and sharing in each other’s secrets. But when they turn sixteen and Kai declares his love for Grace, everything changes. Grace yearns for freedom and slowly begins to push Kai – and their friendship – away.
Dejected Kai dreams of a dazzling Snow Queen, who entices him to leave home and wander to faraway lands. When Grace discovers Kai is gone, she learns how much she has lost and sets out on a mystical journey to find Kai…and discover herself.”
Cameron creates a whole new way of looking at the story of the Snow Queen, while keeping the spirit of the original story. This story will draw you in from the very beginning, and you won’t be able to put it down until the very end. This book will make you fall in love with the tale of the Snow Queen all over again!
Go on a frozen adventure to the Snow Queen’s palace!
