about

Game of Thrones meets Graceling in this action-packed fantasy—the highly anticipated final book in the New York Times bestselling Snow Like Ashes series by Sara Raasch. Perfect for fans of An Ember in the Ashes and A Court of Thorns and Roses.

Angra is alive, his Decay is spreading—and no one is safe.

Meira will do anything to save her world. With Angra trying to break through her mental defenses, she desperately needs to learn to control her own magic—so when the leader of a mysterious Order from Paisly offers to teach her, Meira jumps at the chance.  But the true solution to stopping the Decay lies in a labyrinth deep beneath the Season Kingdoms. To defeat Angra, Meira will have to enter the labyrinth, destroy the very magic she’s learning to control—and make the biggest sacrifice of all.

Mather will do anything to save his queen. He needs to rally the Children of the Thaw, find Meira—and finally tell her how he really feels.  But with a plan of attack that leaves no kingdom unscathed and a major betrayal within their ranks, winning the war—and protecting Meira—slips farther and farther out of reach.

Ceridwen will do anything to save her people. Angra had her brother killed, stole her kingdom, and made her a prisoner. But when she’s freed by an unexpected ally who reveals a shocking truth behind Summer’s slave trade, Ceridwen must take action to save her true love and her kingdom, even if it costs her what little she has left.

As Angra unleashes the Decay on the world, Meira, Mather, and Ceridwen must bring the kingdoms of Primoria together…or lose everything.

 

Sara Raasch is the New York Times Bestselling author of the YA fantasy series Snow Like Ashes. The series includes Snow Like Ashes, Ice Like Fire, Flames Like Vines, and Frost Like Night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ending to an amazing series! You know those stories that lag and are full of nonessential events and conversations that just fill up space until the inevitable climax? Well book lovers, this isn’t one of those books! Frost Like Night was the perfect way to end a series! I don’t think that there is one element of this story that I would change. This book does not disappoint. We know that from the previous book that Meira is the conduit of Winter’s magic and she will have to sacrifice herself to the magic chasm in order to defeat Angra and destroy the Decay. What I love about this revelation is how much Meira’s character grows and comes to terms with her fate and her feelings for others as well as herself. The conversations Meira has with herself during her time in Paisly are truly inspiring, making her journey completely believable. Just like in Ice Like Fire, this story is told from various points of view. In alternating chapters, we get a glimpse of the world through Meira, Mather and Ceridwen’s eyes. The thing that struck me funny about these different narratives was the fact that Meira’s was told in first person while those of Mather and Ceridwen’s were in third person. I would have much rather had them all told in the same narrative but Raasch does an extremely good job writing such raw, emotionally powerful scenes that it did not bother me. Another thing that I enjoyed about this book was that the story was never boring. It differed from the norm where the main climactic event wasn’t over in one chapter. There was so much build up in Ice Like Fire that brought us to this point and its execution was phenomenal. Everything that I wanted to happen did and so much more. There were a few surprises, good and bad, along the way and I was a crying mess more than once. #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Ending A great ending to the series. Although feeling a bit rushed at times, it fit the storyline well (war waits for no one you know!). Loved how the characters came together, how each learned to deal with joy and pain, love and lost, friends and family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an Ending! This was a great ending! I laughed, I screamed, I chewed my nails in nervousness/suspense/anticipation. Above all I cried. Not because it was sad, though there are many sad parts, but because it was a fabulous ending to this wonderful series!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Ending Oh, what an ending. It was heartbreaking to watch this all play out and know it was going to be the end of so many beloved characters, some more permanently than others. It was great and suspenseful to read the three perspectives of the most beloved characters––Meira, Mather, and Ceridwen––since they all have widely different personalities and went on very different adventures. It's hard to pick who's journey I enjoyed the most, given how each character evolved and finished their growth. I loved Meira's maturity and fearlessness, Mather's love and acceptance, and Ceridwen's fiery nature and courage. There were some fun surprises, but also LOTS of tragedy. As it says on the blurb, no one was safe at all, and there were a few moments where my heartstrings got pretty wildly yanked. Not to mention that the ending was explosive! I actually had to cover up the bottom half of the page and read line by line so I wouldn't cheat myself into skipping ahead! All in all, I see what the hype about this series is and am definitely happy with the ending. I would have asked for a little more mercy on the characters (watching them die is never easy!), but other than that, there's nothing I would change. This was the perfect ending to a great series!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed Feelings This entire series has been a love-hate relationship for me, and Frost Like Night was no exception. I truly wanted to love this book wholly and completely – the premise is so interesting, the plot finally building towards a peak that has been promised since the beginning – and yet, in the end, it still fell short for me. The writing didn’t fit the tone, the story felt rushed, and the conclusion simply felt like a cheap cop-out, if I’m to be blunt. Like Snow Like Ashes and Ice Like Fire, Frost Like Night was simply lacking the key elements required to make it an exceptional, standout piece of work – instead it remains solidly within the the realm of mediocrity, a fact which is both disappointing yet expected.
