Danielle Paige is an amazing author and is joining the elite few that I have deemed my favorite! Stealing Snow came out today and I am so excited for it (funds, however, don’t agree with me). It also seems the new thing to do is have novellas come out before the main book, and Danielle Paige owned it!
I read Before the Snow and loved it so much that I had pre-ordered Queen Rising immediately. I couldn’t wait to delve right back into the world. I was only slightly disappointed that Nepenthe wasn’t in this story, and that Lazar was only mentioned in passing. That’s okay, though, because the the story was still a great read.
We got to learn about Margot, who was mentioned in Before the Snow and her story unfolds in Queen Rising. I knew Margot sounded a little . . . crazy in Before the Snow and I’m glad her character development was the main point of this book.
Margot’s love for her brother was admirable, and she did everything she could to keep that bond together. It was he who changed and I think that’s part of what made Margot become the person she became. Then after Go, she had nothing to live for – so Margot did what she had to do to get by.
The ending was very intriguing and I’m interested in seeing how the two novellas tie into Stealing Snow.
Witches of the land variety.
We have Margot, who has such an interesting bad story that I already know she'll be a villain I'll love to hate! Margot has a brother, Go (such a cute nickname), who sees a reversal of fortune that ends in disaster. She thinks she finds love, but it betrays her. Soon, power's all she wants.
At one time, I was planning on waiting to buy Stealing Snow, but after reading this book?! Yeah, I'm pre-ordering it! This is a must read book; it's one of the best novellas I've ever read! I read it in under an hour!
There's an attempt to tie events from Before the Snow to this one, but I don't think anyone was paying attention. And by that I mean the author herself.
BTS tells of an incident where the prince accidentally kills several people with his snow powers. Here we're given some backstory into that, where one of the victims is the main character Margot's brother, who ended up serving the prince via a tragic backstory. But we also meet Nepenthe from BTS who's parents were supposed to be dead, yet she was visiting them just prior to this tragedy... ok.
There's just as little to hold your interest here as the first one, though you do feel for Margot as she became increasingly estranged from her brother. The writing remains dull and boring, and other than the freezing incident seems to have even less to do with the main story than the first one. Really, you can skip it.
