Gr 8 Up–In this companion to Echo North, Meyer crafts a new fairy tale about the daughter of the North Wind. Satu has grown up hearing her parents’ love story, how her father gave up his power to marry her mother, but the bargain has thrown them centuries into the future. When they vanish before her very eyes and the Winter Lord appears, Satu must reclaim her father’s magic before the entire world unmakes itself. Poetic and richly atmospheric, Satu’s coming-of-age story has adventure, romance, and a strong identity as she navigates her anxiety and a deep sense of empathy to save the world.
VERDICT A uniquely crafted fairy tale recommended for general purchase.
