    Cold

    I really wanted to love this book. It was beautifully written, the characters were interesting, well-fleshed out and not written as your typical "beautiful" fantasy creatures. The storyline was interesting and something right up my alley. Honestly, not to pun off the book, but it left me entirely cold. I wasn't interested and I found it disturbingly easy to put the book down and walk away. Something that would have normally taken me a day or two took me over a week to read because I had to talk myself into reading instead of doing dishes. I was very disappointed. I am not even sure what it was that made me so ambivalent about the book because of the good points listed above but it just didn't seem to come together enough to hold my interest. This may be a "me thing" - I will try her other similar book to try and find out.

    Wonderful read— great ending. Weaves multiple stories together. Great faerie world and human world cross-over. Masterful use of multiple points of view. Makes you worry about characters ; great adventure. Ending makes you smile and feel good. You won’t be disappointed.

    Best retelling written in a while.

    This was such a captivating story, full of intrigue, suspense and wonderful characters. The heroin was a strong person, and I did not feel that she was being 'rescued' by the menfolk all the time as is typcial in YA. A beautiful retelling, cleverly imagined, and I love love LOVE the ending, it didn't feel cheap. I have already made a few of my friends read this book, and I have since purchased more from Ms Novik.

    Naomi Novik never ceases to amaze me; I love her work. With strong characters and plots that make you wonder and dream, I can't wait for her next magical tale.
