Book one in the Winterling series, by Sarah Prineas
We live here, my girl, because it is close to the Way, and echoes of its magic are felt in our world. The Way is a path leading to another place, where the people are governed by different rules. Magic runs through them and their land.”
With her boundless curiosity and wild spirit, Fer has always felt that she doesn’t belong. Not when the forest is calling to her, when the rush of wind through branches feels more real than school or the quiet farms near her house. Then she saves an injured creature—he looks like a boy, but he’s really something else. He knows who Fer truly is, and invites her through the Way, a passage to a strange, dangerous land.
Fer feels an instant attachment to this realm, where magic is real and oaths forge bonds stronger than iron. But a powerful huntress named the MÓr rules here, and Fer can sense that the land is perilously out of balance. Fer must unlock the secrets about the parents she never knew and claim her true place before the worlds on both sides of the Way descend into endless winter.
Sarah Prineas captivates in this fantasy-adventure about a girl who must find within herself the power to set right a terrible evil.
Winterling is packed with adventure and excitement! The are so many things to love about this book: It has a great plot, adventure, betrayal and friend ship. I also loved the characters. As you go on in the book you get to learn more and more about the characters and their backgrounds.
One of the things I really liked about this book was that, you got to alternate between the two main character (Fer and the boy she saved). You get to see through their eyes, and see how they see the world around them.
My Book Rating: ***** meg-a-stars
