Stealing Snow (Stealing Snow #1) by Danielle Paige

Seventeen-year-old Snow lives within the walls of the Whittaker Institute, a

Stealing Snow

high security mental hospital in upstate New York. Deep down, she knows she doesn’t belong there, but she has no memory of life outside, except for the strangest dreams. And then a mysterious, handsome man, an orderly in the hospital, opens a door – and Snow knows that she has to leave …
She finds herself in icy Algid, her true home, with witches, thieves, and a strangely alluring boy named Kai. As secret after secret is revealed, Snow discovers that she is on the run from a royal lineage she’s destined to inherit, a father more powerful and ruthless than she could have imagined, and choices of the heart that could change everything. Heroine or villain, queen or broken girl, frozen heart or true love, Snow must choose her fate …
A wonderfully icy fantastical romance, with a strong heroine choosing her own destiny, Danielle Paige’s irresistibly page-turning Snow Queen is like Maleficent and Frozen all grown up.

The Grace of Kings (The Dandelion Dynasty #1) By Ken Liu

Two men rebel together against tyranny—and then become rivals—in this first sweeping book of an epic fantasy series from Ken Liu, recipient of Hugo, Nebula, and The Grace of Kings (The Dandelion Dynasty #1)World Fantasy awards.

Wily, charming Kuni Garu, a bandit, and stern, fearless Mata Zyndu, the son of a deposed duke, seem like polar opposites. Yet, in the uprising against the emperor, the two quickly become the best of friends after a series of adventures fighting against vast conscripted armies, silk-draped airships, and shapeshifting gods. Once the emperor has been overthrown, however, they each find themselves the leader of separate factions—two sides with very different ideas about how the world should be run and the meaning of justice.

Fans of intrigue, intimate plots, and action will find a new series to embrace in the Dandelion Dynasty.

What I think so far: I am not that far into this book yet but I am enjoying it although I knew I would as the author is the same one who writes the Pacific North West Series, although she uses a different pen name for those books, and I love all the books that I have read in that series so far. All the characters in this book are shaping up to be interesting in their own ways and for their own reasons already which is making the book a page turner. On the basis of this I know I will more than likely give the book a five star rating on completion but keep an eye out for my review which will be linked below as soon as I have published it.
