BOOK REVIEW- THAW: Winter's Child
A barren king and queen pray for a child, and when in their loneliness,
they make one out of snow, their prayers are answered in a special, and unusual way.
Sometimes, when we get what we wish for, we don't know what to do with it.
Interesting Fairy Tale; it reminds me of some of the kinds I grew up with. Charming fantasy story with a moral to it, helping to build good character. This "Book 1" sets up the beginning and the Royal Family dynamics. You see that they love their daughter dearly but the struggle comes when they began to fear her powers. They fear what it could do to her, the family and their people as well. They want her to have a normal life with everything good but they just don't know what to do to help her. She is special after all.
In between each new chapter there are a few questions asked that are meant to begin a conversation, I liked that. There weren't too many questions and I liked it better than stories where I have seen it done at the end of a book.
I will say though, there were so many different people and their stories that were introduced that I did have a bit of trouble keeping them all straight at first.
The story continues on in the next book. I'm thinking that some of the other people that were introduced in the first book, will start to come together in the following books.
I was given this story FREE in exchange for an honest review.
