Prisoner of Ice and Snow Read & Download ¿ 104 Ð When Valor is arrested she couldn’t be happier Demidova’s prison for criminal children is exactly where she wants to be Valor’s sister Sasha is already serving a life sentence for stealing from the royal family and Valor is going to help her escape from the insideNever mind that nYal family and Valor is going to help her escape from the insideNever mind that no one has escaped in three hundred years Valor has a plan and resources most could only dream about But she didn't count on h. Prisoner of Ice and Snow throws us right in at the deep end From the very first pages we are in the thick of the main plot and it took me a few chapters to fully understand and realise what was going on Maybe that’s the YA fantasy reader in me though who is used to chapters of world building at the beginning of the books I read so that isn’t a criticism by any meansValor our leading lady willingly commits a crime in order to get herself sent to the same prison as Sasha her twin sister The prison itself is horrible and that goes to show how great a sacrifice Valor has made for her sister I really loved that this book was about sisters because it made me think of my own and I know that I would also do anything to protect or help my own sister I think many young readers will also admire Valor for her bravery and courage definitely two traits that I was really pleased to see represented by a female character in middle grade literatureThe plot was interesting with the right amount of twists and turns along the way but I found that the pace was uite onoff Some chapters felt full of action and others seemed a lot slower I didn’t know when reading this that it is the first book in a series and so I was disappointed with the ending Knowing now that it is a series I think the ending makes sense but it still frustrated me slightly as it felt very rushed It has certainly left itself open for plenty action in the next book though and I’m sure younger readers will audibly gasp at the last couple of paragraphsAs far as characters go there wasn’t enough detail for me I felt like I got to know Valor uite well but I really wanted depth to the other characters she befriends along the way There’s a fab selection of characters and I really wanted to get to know about them maybe that will come in book two Valor is a character I can imagine a lot of young readers really liking especially young girls who may feel inspired by her courage and bravery She does make some decisions that are really not very well thought through and at times she was a bit unlikeable to me but that’s just my own opinionOverall I thought this was a good book with an interesting plot plenty of action and a nice selection of characters I’m sure younger readers will enjoy this uick fantasy especially any sisters out there Thanks to NetGalley Bloomsbury and the author for my copy in exchange for an honest and unbiased review

Aving to outsmart both the guards and her fellow prisoners If Valor’s plan is to succeed she’ll need to make unlikely allies And if the plan fails she and Sasha could end up with fates worse than prison. This book is like a mash up of Six of Crows and Prison Break Such a strange mix of things that I would never of thought I would use to describe the same book I feel like the atmosphere and way of writing was intense than I first expected with this being advertised as a middle grade story and that was really great I've seen a few others compare it to Disney's Frozen which I was a little put off by but I went into it anyway to see for myself as I like to gather my own opinions I am glad I didn't let it persuade me not to read this as I didn't get the link or feel like it was like frozen at all It seemed much darker in tone and the only aspects that resembled Frozen in my eyes were the setting and the fact that the main character is trying to help her sister So don't the fact that this book has been compared to frozen let it put you off The book follows Valor and her attempt at the impossible uest of breaking her sister out of prison by getting arrested herself The humour and the main group of characters in particular really reminded me of Six of Crows It's amazing that the author was able to bring all these things together to create a brilliant concept that is a perfect fantasy The sister relationship we see was brilliant as well and I adored that it was sort of the focus of this book in a way Often things are wrapped in cotton wool when it comes to middle grade so the fact that some of the plot twists were so dark and twisty really made this book stand apart from others I have read I was a little apprehensive first going into this because I tend to stick to the YA NA and Adult genres but the concept of this really intrigued me so I had to dive into it and give it a go I am very glad that I did because it was very enjoyable and a very uick read for anyone looking for a fantasyadventure story that is easy to get into and that has characters you will no doubt fall in love with Other than the Six of Crows and Prison Break vibe I think that the plot was uite original and not very predictable which was very nice I feel like the ending and a few of the aspects introduced later in the book are definitely hinting at a seuel which I do hope is the case as I would pick it up because I would love to see from these characters and this world The main problem I had was with the last few chapters of the book and the way some things were just thrown in at the end It really seemed rushed compared to the progression and development we see throughout the beginning and middle sections Overall I have decided to give this book 45 stars as I very much enjoyed it and would recommend it Thank you to Ruth Lauren Bloomsbury Children's Books and Net Galley for sending me a digital copy in exchange of an honest review
