Publisher's Summary

Bill Carter was starving and dying of exposure when he fell asleep by the standing stone in the Russian Arctic. Sacrificing his life to save his friends, he never expected to wake up, warm, safe, and healed, in the presence of the immortal Snow Maid.

Polina had been alone for decades, her youth slowly draining away as belief in her faded in the world above. She had taken Bill's life in trade for those of his companions. Will the heat of their passion ignite an eternal love, or are the differences between them too great?

Snow Maid

This was an OK story. Bill committed suicide while on an expedition and after a helicopter crash. He sacrificed himself for the others who were still alive but barely. He wakes up with all of his fingers and his feet (they were severely frostbitten) in the care of an elderly woman. This elderly woman eventually becomes the snow maiden. Interesting how this story progressed and how Bill figured out how it could end happily for them. Aiden Black did an OK job with the narration. I received this free copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Remarkable what can happen with faith in you!

A man in artic environment after a helicopter crash, after he had walked out into the winter weather, accepting that he was about to die from frostbite and blood poisoning. Thinking his death would be quicker and allow his fellow survivors more food, which had been running out.
However, he wakes up, being looked after by an elderly woman.

The rest of the story, you need to read ( or listen to) for yourself.
It is a very different story to most.

Snow Maid

This one was really different than I expected and I really like the creativity of the folk lore type storyline. It was really interesting and made the story seem shorter than it was a time flew by. Aiden did a good job.

An absolutely enchanted tale

The Snow Maid is a beautifully written story that will draw you right in. It mixes romance, seduction, eroticism and Russian folklore into into a really excellent plot.

I'm not going to give away any more of the plot than has been provided in the author's description. The narrator does a good job with the voices. Personally, I would have preferred a female voice for this material, but that is a personal preference.

This audio book is well worth the purchase.

Turned a Myth into a reasonable Love story.

Male narrators don't do it for me. But a reasonable performance anyway. Another tale that proves Love will out! Would like to have heard what happened to the colleagues left behind.
