9780062286932: Snow Like Ashes

A striking fantasy tale of dark magic, dangerous politics, and discovering your true self—perfect for fans of Game of Thrones, An Ember in the Ashes and A Court of Thorns and Roses.

Sixteen years ago the Kingdom of Winter was conquered and its citizens enslaved, leaving them without magic or a monarch. Now the Winterians' only hope for freedom is the eight survivors who managed to escape, and who have been waiting for the opportunity to steal back Winter's magic and rebuild the kingdom ever since.

Orphaned as an infant during Winter's defeat, Meira has lived her whole life as a refugee. Training to be a warrior—and desperately in love with her best friend, Winter's future king—she would do anything to help Winter rise to power again.

So when scouts discover the location of the ancient locket that can restore Winter's magic, Meira decides to go after it herself—only to find herself thrust into a world of evil magic and dangerous politics—and ultimately comes to realize that her destiny is not, never has been, her own.

RESULTS:

Mostly A’s: Winter
Winter is unassuming, gentle, yet can easily turn deadly and wicked if not respected. The most admirable trait of all Winterians is endurance—their conduit gave them the ability to dive deep beneath the earth, and magic makes them capable of surviving in the unrelenting chill of eternal cold. Winterians are, above all, survivors.

Mostly B’s: Spring
When asked what they think of when they hear the word Spring, any other citizens of Primoria would say “control.” Spring’s conduit has been used for centuries to enforce utter domination and demand loyalty of all its citizens. But through this dictatorship-like state, Spring has still retained its natural beauty—it is undeniably vivacious and remains a symbol of life.

Mostly C’s: Autumn
Autumn is by far the mostunderestimated Season—but through that, Autumnians have managed to absorb every blow cast their way and rise not only whole, but stronger. They are the adaptable Season, the Season of change, as well as the Season of silent, steady growth. Humble and infallible, sure and gentle, Autumn may be passed over by most of Primoria, but they let this lack of recognition provide them with time to heal and mature.

Mostly D’s: Summer
Summer has one talent that no other kingdom in Primoria possesses: the ability to have fun. Their conduit has been used to encourage utter bliss in every citizen, blanketing Summer with a reputation of parties, music, laughter, and endless enjoyment. With this unmatched ability to love life, though, comes a lack of responsibility. But no Summerian worries about this—not when there’s wine to drink!

From the Back Cover:

A lightning-fast tale of loyalty, love, and finding one's destiny.

Sixteen years ago the Kingdom of Winter was conquered and its citizens enslaved, leaving them without magic or a monarch. Now the Winterians' only hope for freedom is the eight survivors who managed to escape, and who have been searching for the chance to steal back Winter's magic and rebuild the kingdom ever since.

Orphaned as an infant during Winter's defeat, Meira has lived her whole life as a refugee. Training to be a warrior—and desperately in love with her best friend and future king, Mather—she would do anything to help Winter rise to power again. So when scouts discover the location of the ancient locket that can restore their magic, Meira decides to go after it, only to find herself thrust into a world of evil magic and dangerous politics—and to realize that her destiny is not, never has been, her own.
