Blessed—or cursed—with an ability to understand animals, the Lass (as she’s known to her family) has always been an oddball. And when an isbjorn (polar bear) seeks her out, and promises that her family will become rich if only the Lass will accompany him to his castle, she doesn’t hesitate. But the bear is not what he seems, nor is his castle, which is made of ice and inhabited by a silent staff of servents. Only a grueling journey on the backs of the four winds will reveal the truth: the bear is really a prince who’s been enchanted by a troll queen, and the Lass must come up with a way to free him before he’s forced to marry a troll princess.

Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow is a retelling of the fairy tale East of the Sun and West of the Moon, one of my favorite fairy tales. I feel like there are a couple ways to write a novel-length fairy tale: stick closely to the original tale in style and content or reinvent the tale, straying from the or...

3.0 Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow
3.5 starsGood, though I never really gave my heart away to this book, where I've given my heart to so many similar books. It just lacked strong personality-- and the ending was a women studies 101 nightmare; I know the ending probably came straight from the fairy tale and was softened by some side c...

It's no great secret that I adore Jessica Day-George's writing. I find her to be a wonderful craftsman of fairytale and folklore retellings - she does a great job at keeping the heart of the story while enriching it with in-depth characters and flavoring it with her own details. In other words, she ...
