A Tale of Ice and Ash by Katherine Macdonald Review
As always, I adored this latest edition to Katherine Macdonalds Fairytales retold series. She always manages to create such wonderful worlds, filled with interesting and original characters, putting her own spin on the tales.
Her use of banter, flirtations and emotion made those characters come to life on the pages, making me have so many mixed feelings throughout reading. Loving moments. Heart wrenching moments. Fear. You name it.
Of all the characters, I think I adored Cole and Onyx thme most. Onyx was moody, but so loveable, and Cole made me laugh. I couldn't help but feel a connection with him. And Eirwen (our snow white) was certainly no damsel in distress. She was more than capable of saving herself, not waiting around for her prince charming to arrive. The chemistry between her and Cole is endearing, and steamy too. The dialogue on point. '"I hate your hidden depths," she whispered, smiling.
"No, you don't." "Fine, I hate your confidence." "hmm, no, I'm fairly sure you like that too."
"Yes," he said, moving closer, "but I think you enjoy that most of all."
