Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes, #1)
Snow Like Ashes
th, 2014
Genres: YA, Fantasy
A heartbroken girl. A fierce warrior. A hero in the making.

Sixteen years ago the Kingdom of Winter was conquered and its citizens enslaved, leaving them without magic or a monarch. Now, the Winterians’ only hope for freedom is the eight survivors who managed to escape, and who have been waiting for the opportunity to steal back Winter’s magic and rebuild the kingdom ever since.

Orphaned as an infant during Winter’s defeat, Meira has lived her whole life as a refugee, raised by the Winterians’ general, Sir. Training to be a warrior—and desperately in love with her best friend, and future king, Mather — she would do anything to help her kingdom rise to power again.

So when scouts discover the location of the ancient locket that can restore Winter’s magic, Meira decides to go after it herself. Finally, she’s scaling towers, fighting enemy soldiers, and serving her kingdom just as she’s always dreamed she would. But the mission doesn’t go as planned, and Meira soon finds herself thrust into a world of evil magic and dangerous politics – and ultimately comes to realize that her destiny is not, never has been, her own.

Sara Raasch’s debut fantasy is a lightning-fast tale of loyalty, love, and finding one’s destiny.
When I first read the description, this was all I read, then I instantly knew I HAD to read this book!

"A heartbroken girl. A fierce warrior. A hero in the making."

Isn't that enough to peak your curiosity? 

Then all this is an added bonus:

A kingdom that has been conquered and enslaved! Robbing them of their magic and monarch.
One Orphaned girl fighting for her kingdom, and to restore it back to the way it should be! 

Magic, love, betrayal, war, politics, is all just the beginning of what is filled in this awesome book, that I just HAVE to have! 

What do you think? 

Will you be adding it to your TBR Reading Pile?

Sara RaaschSara Raasch has known she was destined for bookish things since the age of five, when her friends had a lemonade stand and she tagged along to sell her hand-drawn picture books too. Not much has changed since then -- her friends still cock concerned eyebrows when she attempts to draw things and her enthusiasm for the written word still drives her to extreme measures. Her debut YA fantasy, SNOW LIKE ASHES, is coming out Fall 2014 from Balzer + Bray. It does not feature her hand-drawn pictures. She is represented by Charlotte Sheedy Literary.
