Five Star book - hands down !
If you are looking for a compelling story in the genre of Magick, then this is the book for you!
Everything that you are looking for is inside The Snow Globe.
The story begins with the alluring scents of lavender and leads you through its portals of alchemistic imagery, enchanting you with detailed scenes of enigmatic Magick on every level. The writer has painted this enchanted tale with such elaborate and vivid eloquence. The reader will experience this spiraling story as if they were living inside this riveting world. I felt as if I saw this world through Sondrine’s eyes, sensing every emotion, sight, sound and scent, throughout her journey. Each character held a strong presence and purpose throughout the story. Shán, the main M.C., had the most bewitching and orphic personality. I was intrigued with the exquisite attention to detail, in which the main character works with and weaves her Magickal traits with the Elements. My ever-changing perceptions kept me on edge with every turn of a page. The very moment that you think that you have deciphered a hidden clue or determined what may be, it spirals into an unforeseen direction. The ending is mind blowing and leaves the reader wanting more! Every page is filled with multi-layered mystery and never lets you go!
The author is more than just an author. She has created a unique and surreal realm. To compare this book with any other book series, would be unjust. This book is worthy to be recognized by the “Big Five” publishers in NYC.
I hope that a television series is created from this soon to be legendary tale. I would love to see this story come alive. Thank you for writing this book Jenna. I look forward to The Snow Globe Two !
I read a small teaser several months ago. Since then, I waited for its release. And it was worth the wait!
This book reads like a true classic. The author does a phenomenal job, presenting a unique and very creative story about a young, strong-willed woman, Sondrine, who runs away from a bad situation, only to end up fearing for her life. Now living in a fantasy world called Winterhaven, she is charged with a mission. If she fails, she will be beheaded.
The story unfolds perfectly, scene by scene. I was transported to the 1800’s with the author’s clever and time period dialogue and background descriptions. The characters were very well developed and the engrossing plot kept me in suspense. But I didn’t want to rush through it. Ms. Nelson’s writing is truly beautiful and every word contributes to the development of the story.
I purchased the e-book version as I normally do with all my books. But I will be ordering the paperback version too. This is a book I will re-read.
And with a cliffhanger like this, I will definitely be following the series.. FANTASTIC DEBUT!
She always knew she was different. If not the magenta tipped curls she had snipped only to see grow back, then most definitely because of the elemental powers she possesses. Still, the Cimmerian’s Curio Emporium in London, England had always felt like home. Until her Aunt forces a decision on Sondrine in an attempt to push her out. A decision that tips her world upside down, turning her seemingly predictable life into a flurry of emotions and decisions. Still, her life had few complaints, save her bitter Aunt. But a visit from a stranger with a mysterious Snow Globe changes everything, shaking up all she thought she knew and believed possible.
The Snow Globe is an unforgettable experience. I was fully immersed in the expansive worlds, creatures, characters and their magical abilities, mysteries, and adventures. The writing is beautiful, with lush descriptions and ample dialogue, and fully captures the old-timey feel of Victorian England. I devoured each word! I have a weakness for rich speech and Jenna Nelson did not disappoint. The world building is incredible, multi-layered, and stretches the imagination to explore both what is ethereally beautiful and disturbing. And the humor... Oh the humor! It's snarky, dry, fantastically witty, especially the bickering between Sondrine and a certain young man. Overall, the story line is clever and engaging.
I will never look at a snow globe the same again!
Highly recommended for all who enjoy fantasy and quest-like adventures.
Jenna Nelson, I can't wait to read book two! I leapt with Sondrine and must know what awaits her and me!
