White as Frost: A Dark Elf Fairytale (The Darkwood Trilogy Book 1)

We rated this book:


When Rose’s mother takes her away to become the princess of a foreign land, she is not at all excited. Everything she has ever known is gone, and she awaits the day she can go back to Parnese. When they arrive, Rose is thrilled to find the promise of friendship in the king’s daughter, Neeve. However, Neeve is annoying, and she has magic, much to Rose’s jealousy. Rose soon realizes that there is more to her new sister and her strange powers than she thought. One day, she follows Neeve into the Darkwood, the mysterious forest that surrounds the castle. The Darkwood soon becomes Rose’s refuge, and a source of friendship when she meets the guardian of the forest, Thorne. But there is more to Thorne and Neeve than meets the eye, and Rose might be a key player in the Darkwood’s future.

Will Rose be able to hold on to the Darkwood and her dreams of magic? This book was an interesting and imaginative approach to a well-known fairy tale. It was full of adventure, magic, and delicate hints of romance, and I liked the characters. I will look forward to reading other books in the series!
