White as Frost: A Dark Elf Fairytale (The Darkwood Trilogy)
White as Frost is the story of an ordinary girl, Rose, and her extraordinary stepsister and friend, Neeve, who has a mysterious connection with arcane, sorcerous, forest people.
This book is mainly extraordinarily good writing, but it is seemingly unfinished. Anthea Sharp crafted but one story, one story arc, and split it up into three books. This means that there is a great big cliffhanger at the end and the entire plot is unfinished. The part-baked book is satisfying up until the ending, of which there is none. The writing is complex and the description done so well it is almost as if you are there. Had the book stayed as good as the beginning and the middle were, the story would have been five stars. The unfortunate absence of a conclusion lowered my rating.
This book provides a deliciously engrossing read. All libraries and middle schools should own this book. If you love stories of sisterhood, secrets, and magic, then this is the book for you. I would recommend this to fourth through ninth graders. I can’t wait to read the rest in the series.
