Ignore the stirrings of war. Let the carriage to a royal ball wait. There is a story to be told: of a starless night, a mother and her sick son, and a mortal who falls in love with the snow god, and will do anything to have her...
So I brought Bridge of Snow this mainly to keep me going until the next book in the series comes out (soon, ever so soon!). And having just dived straight in and purchased it I didn’t look at the back. This would normally be a foolish thing, but here is was almost pure genius.
In The Winner’s Curse we learnt more about Kestral and her world, here we learn about Arin’s and what his childhood was like. It is a tiny glimpse into that world but it is still pretty satisfying. The story is beautiful and captivating. And is a wonderful fairy tale.
Bridge of Snow could be read before The Winner’s Curse but the tale will make more sense afterwards. This is why fairy tales exist.
