I’m really excited about this one. I’m a huge fan of my friend Sarah‘s Magic Thief books. Winterling is even better. These are my more or less official thoughts about Winterling, from the blurb I volunteered:
Sarah Prineas conjures a world of frost and snow and magic and peril. At the core of a story that doesn’t skimp on thrilling chases and dangerous secrets, we have Fer, a compelling hero readers will care about and root for. Joining Fer is a fascinating cast of allies and enemies, from grouchy Rook to snarling wolf people. Winterling captures the best elements of classic fantasy tales and puts them in a fresh, electric new context. What a marvelous book!
Here are my less official but nonetheless heartfelt thoughts: Hooboy, do I love this kickass book!
I’m heading out on a trip early tomorrow morning, but I’m going to make a point of hitting a bookstore on the road, because I want this thing in my hands on opening day. I humbly suggest you consider doing the same. You won’t regret it.
