Frequently bought together
"A fairy tale, beautiful like an ice crystal, and razor sharp."
Silvia Moreno-Garcia, World Fantasy Award-winning co-editor of She Walks in Shadows
"Winterglass is rich with diamondine prose, a scintillant retelling of the Ice Queen that challenges Occidental aesthetics, colonial mentality, and personal identity.
Cassandra Khaw, author of Hammers on Bone, BFA & Locus Award nominee An exquisite gem of a novella.
"Politics, relationships, and combat presented as a matryoshka, the beauty of which is there's no easy way of telling which shells are within which. Sriduangkaew's sensuous metaphors and elegant imagery are never less than a pleasure to read. Thoroughly recommended." Jonathan L. Howard, author of Johannes Cabal the Necromancer

The writing was a bit too poetic for my taste, but it worked with the general mood of the story. I loved the world building: Asian based culture (something between India and China), the Sci-Fi elements, the magic is mind-blowing. The concept of using ghosts as power energy is brilliant. I loved the dark side of the story; it was cruel and hard at times. The antagonist – Snow Queen is awesome and was gorgeously portrayed. I also enjoyed how questionable all the characters are.
I really liked the main character – Nuawa is strong and very dedicated, it is nice to see how far she is willing to go to save the world.
Other thing I loved about the book is how the author deals with gender and character’s queerness. I enjoy the most stories where those issues are not in question and everything is accepted.
My only complaint is – I still cannot figure id there will be a sequel. In my view, it is obvious this must be the beginning of the series. It feels like a buildup, with more to come. For now it looks like Standalone, in this case the ending is very week and lacks wrap up. As book one it deserves full 5 stars, as standalone – no more than 3… Therefore, this is 4 stars review, because I believe it is only the beginning.
If you’re looking for a fun book that’s a relatively quick read, Winterglass is highly recommended. I’m definitely holding out hope for another story set in its world, and looking forward to seeing if Sriduangkaew revisits it in the future.
