From Danielle Paige, the New York Times best-selling author of Dorothy Must Die, comes a reimagining of "The Snow Queen" fairy tale.
Seventeen-year-old Snow has spent the majority of her life within the walls of the Whittaker Institute, a high-security mental hospital in upstate New York. Deep down she knows she's not crazy and doesn't belong there. When she meets a mysterious, handsome new orderly and dreams about a strange twisted tree, she realizes she must escape and figure out who she really is.
Using her trusting friend, Bale, as a distraction, Snow breaks free and races into the nearby woods. Suddenly everything isn't what it seems, the line between reality and fantasy begins to blur, and she finds herself in icy Algid - her true home - with witches, thieves, and a strangely alluring boy named Kai, none of whom she's sure she can trust. As secret after secret is revealed, Snow discovers that she is on the run from a royal lineage she's destined to inherit, a father more powerful and ruthless than she could have imagined, and choices of the heart that could change the fate of everything...including Snow's return to the world she once knew.
This breathtaking first volume begins the story of how Snow becomes a villain, a queen, and ultimately a hero.

"A lush and addictive fantasy woven from threads of magic, romance, and adventure by a master storyteller. Danielle Paige raises the bar with Stealing Snow." (Kami Garcia, New York Times best-selling coauthor of Beautiful Creatures and author of The Lovely Reckless)
I started this book wondering if it would be as good as her others. it's surpassed anything I expected it is absolutely fantastic if you like her other works this one is a must.
I just kept waiting for something to happen that made sense. One of the main characters actually only shows up at the beginning and the end. Disappointing. Forced myself to finish the book. So sad to see you have to WAIT for a sequel to hear what happens. Won't read it if there is one. Narrator did a great job.
I generally disliked the book from the first few lines and was marveling at the simplicity and stupidity that is the story. I felt the story to be generic and lackluster. I was barely listening later on as it wasn't very much interesting near the end. It was predictable and dull. I felt each of the characters was barely developed and unrelatable.
