Really disappointing It has a wonderful premise, but it is overflowing with problems I ll be back with specifics, it s too early in the morning to be analytical Ha ha.
E ARC from EdelweissEnjoyed, but probably won t buy because I don t have a lot of fantasy readers This is the strongest contender for one I might purchase It starts in the real world, has a few friend and family problems, and has a fairy folk tale connection Still, the same can be said of Houts Winterfrost, Prineas Winterling, Constable s The Wolf Princess or Rudnick s A Frozen Heart, none of which have been circulating very well.
Pros A cute, well written, entertaining story perfect for tween audiences looking for a fantasy read The story is original and interesting It s a nice light read for older audiences as well I love the name Owl and thought the story had some nice twists.Cons Though the book is original as a whole, there are elements of the story similar to other fairy tales and children s stories.I would rate it 4.6 4.7My copy of this book was obtained from a giveaway.

Review of digital ARC from EdelweissPlus This librarian of 4th 5th graders will definitely be buying this book for at least one of her libraries Fantasy is my genre and while I generally lean towards dragons and darker magic, this piece of fantasy was outstanding What a great concept Jack Frost and the North Wind battling with the Queen of May and the Earl of October with the Lady of the Lake trying to stay out of the ruckus and Mother Earth having to step in to reestablish the harmony of natur [...]
This is a wonderful story about family and friendship There are lots of likable characters and some despicable ones too There is also a very well thought out plot that has a nice juxtaposition between their real lives and the magical one I really like hos the author took the mythology behind the Jack Frost character and developed a world around it Owl is an interesting character She is desperate to know who her real father is, but her mother is always a bit vague about it Her mother does tell he [...]

Amy Wilson s attempt to bring to life this particular set of folklore myth legend fairy tale is recognizable but the characterization in this novel seemed typical, if not boring Starting from a special snowflake protagonist and a male lead character whose background is rooted from the story s antagonist I would dnf this book if it weren t for the friendship of the two girls I simply love Mallory, I felt her character genuine than anyone in the book Anyways, I do enjoyed the narrative in this no [...]
This was a cute little tale of fantasy for middle grade readers I thought the ending was a little anti climatic, but I did enjoy the friendship and family aspect the writer was trying to portray.
