Great fantasy story

I really love the fantasy genre, but it can get a little same-y at times. I felt like this story was original. I really like how the characters enteracted and grew with the story and I can't wait for the sequal. The performance given by Jennifer English was fantastic, she has a real talent with accents and bringing characters to life.

This was really fun!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would definitely recommend this. The story is really fun and easy to get through, if a little predictable at times. I really loved the narrator's voice - I think she made the main character more likable for me.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I wasn't shocked by the plot twist, but it was a good ending, and I think just compelling enough to make the reader want to read the sequel.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I really enjoyed the scene at the beginning - sad, but a good set up for the story to come. I also enjoyed one of the scenes between Arcus and Ruby, because there was lots of tension and excitement.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

"A whirlwind of ice and snow, perfect for newcomers to fantasy!"

Any additional comments?

This was a really great book for people just arriving in the fantasy genre - perhaps a little predictable for readers who have read more of it. But I definitely recommend the audiobook as I think I wouldn't have enjoyed the book as much when reading the physical copy.
