White as Frost by Athena Sharp (audibook)

 Book Description

Two sisters. One enchanted forest. And a hidden destiny that could doom them both....

I didn’t want to come live in the castle beside the Darkwood, and I especially didn’t want to become enemies with my stepsister Neeve. But how could I help it? She has magic, while I’m an ordinary girl. She’s the heir to the throne, while I’m an annoying afterthought since my mother married the king. And Neeve has the ability to master her emotions while I’m a re-haired disaster. 

She also has Thorne, the handsome guardian of the forest who tutors her in the powers that are her heritage. Even though I know he could never be mine, I can’t keep my heart from dreaming of the impossible. 

But everything changes the day I uncover the secrets the castle has been hiding....

My Thoughts:

This was a really, really good book.  I liked both the main characters Rose and Neeve.  Rose came to live with Neeve and her father, the king, in the castle of Raine when her mother married the king.  The first thing that caught my attention was before they even got to the castle, things were happening that caused lots of questions.  I like Rose's personality especially in contrast with her mother's.  

I did feel bad for Rose to start out because she wanted her new 'sister' to want to be friends as much as she did, and Neeve just wasn't having it.  As the story unfolds, I loved learning the secrets that the place and especially the woods holds. The creatures and the magic, I'm just itching to learn more.  I think this book has wonderfully set up the series to follow.  Each time we get an answer, it seems more questions come to mind.  The author does a great job with keeping you intrigued and wanting to keep listening for more.  I can't wait for the next book.


Thank you to the author for the review copy of this audiobook.  I received this book for free and was not required to write a positive review.
