Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch
Published: October 14th 2014 by Balzer + Bray
Number of Pages: 416 Pages (Hardcover)
Series: Yes, #1 in the Snow Like Ashes Trilogy (?)
A heartbroken girl. A fierce warrior. A hero in the making.
Sixteen years ago the Kingdom of Winter was conquered and its citizens enslaved, leaving them without magic or a monarch. Now, the Winterians’ only hope for freedom is the eight survivors who managed to escape, and who have been waiting for the opportunity to steal back Winter’s magic and rebuild the kingdom ever since.
Orphaned as an infant during Winter’s defeat, Meira has lived her whole life as a refugee, raised by the Winterians’ general, Sir. Training to be a warrior—and desperately in love with her best friend, and future king, Mather — she would do anything to help her kingdom rise to power again.
So when scouts discover the location of the ancient locket that can restore Winter’s magic, Meira decides to go after it herself. Finally, she’s scaling towers, fighting enemy soldiers, and serving her kingdom just as she’s always dreamed she would. But the mission doesn’t go as planned, and Meira soon finds herself thrust into a world of evil magic and dangerous politics – and ultimately comes to realize that her destiny is not, never has been, her own.

As you all know, I'm not the biggest fan of fantasy novels, simply because they are not my cup of tea and most of them are written in third person, which I don't like. But, the beauty of this cover made me disregard it all and I went and bought the book anyways, because look at it, it's a darn gorgeous cover. I like the contrast of winter and spring/summer that we see inside the charm (I know there is a more specific word for it in the book but I can't remember) surrounded by the ashes/snow on the lower half of the cover and the blurry background at the top.
I really like this cover, along with the cover for the sequel, Ice Like Fire. I've even taken a #CoverLustFriday picture of Snow Like Ashes nestled inside my fox SpiritHood for my Instagram which you can see here.
