Review of Snow Like Ashes-Sara Raasch

A wonderful, epic fantasy, this debut novel has it all: a fascinating world controlled by magic, an orphan soldier girl on the run for her life, and two young courageous men, one a king and the other a prince.  Our heroine, Meira, has been in hiding from an evil magician who conquered her kingdom sixteen years ago and enslaved the citizens, except for a small band of soldiers hoping to win their kingdom back.  In this fantasy world, there are 4 kingdoms relating to the seasons and 4 kingdoms relating to rhythms; the most powerful kingdom is Spring, with the evil king who wants to rule and enslave all the others.  But, the ruler hasn't counted on Meira's bravery or magic powers... The ending is satisfying, while leaving room for a sequel.  4 Elves - Highly recommended for teens & pre-teens (and all adults who love fantasy)
