Ignore the stirrings of war. Let the carriage to a royal ball wait. There is a story to be told: of a starless night, a mother and her sick son, and a mortal who falls in love with the snow god, and will do anything to have her...
“She looked at the boy. He knew her weakness for storytelling. And it was, after all, only a story. Still, she wished he had chosen a happier one.”Oh, wow. As if I didn't have a love for fairy tales already, Marie Rutkoski wrote an extraordinary tale about love and loss which I couldn't help but adore. Her beautiful writing style shows through, and made me experience more emotions in fourteen pages than I usually do with actual novels.
Complete with heart-wrenching flashforwards and one of the most important life lessons of them all, Bridge of Snow is highly recommended for those who loved The Winner's Curse.
