Snow Like Ashes Book Review
Sara Raasch’s debut novel, Snow Like Ashes, made a splash last fall when it debuted and though it’s been on my shelf for a few months, I am only know getting around to discovering it. It was worth the dust it gathered.
This story is an interesting one. It takes a unique approach to creating kingdoms and the world in which it’s set is an eye-popping visual feast indeed. The world is separated by four kingdoms, all of which are inspired by the seasons. We are primarily among the Winterians whose appearance mirrors their season – pale, white skin and snow-white hair. Then there are the kingdoms or realms that surrounded the four seasons. These are either allies of Winter (and the seasons) or are a realm who seeks to destroy them.
