Rating: 3/5

Sixteen years ago, the Kingdom of Winter was destroyed and its citizens enslaved. Only a few people escaped, one of them a feisty young girl named Meira. For sixteen years, she and her group have been trying to reclaim Winters magic locket, so that the kingdom can be restored. And one day, when they hear news of where the locket is, Meira decides to go after it, despite being told not to...

I quite enjoyed this book. I really loved the world this is set in and the magic is very interesting. I think the play on seasons is really cool too.

I really enjoy the main character, she's strong and a true warrior. I felt like the side-characters were really clear too, though in the beginning I had a hard time understanding who everyone was. For a while during the middle though, I thought this book wasn't going to be for me, but the ending redeemed that feeling.

I felt like this book laid a good foundation for a series. However, it felt a little predictable, and I didn't love the love triangle, as I often find these annoying. I hope it won't be a huge part of the continuation, as I am very excited to read the next book!

I would recommend this to people who enjoy fantasy and especially enjoy reading about a fantasy world. Very well suited for a young audience.
