Mirror, mirror on the wall — read this book! Yes, read it all! The Snow Queen’s Shadow is a tale you will not want to put down once you start reading it, and one that you’ll want to throw against the wall (in a good way, really!) when you finish it. The fourth and final book in Hines’ Princess series brings a complete, organic and realistic conclusion to many of the story arcs that have spanned the series. Add to this the exceptional character development and engaging dialogue, and you have a must-read for any fan of the series or the fantasy genre.

While working on a new and risky spell to save her queen, Snow pushes the strictures of magic too far, shattering her mother’s mirror. What she unleashes in the shattering changes her, and the kingdom she serves, in fundamental ways. Each shard and grain of glass from the mirror is now a deadly weapon imbued with otherworldly magic. Talia and Danielle must work together, and call upon all the skills and weapons in their arsenal, in order to bring Snow back to herself. But is that even possible? (DAW, Jul., 337 pp., $7.99)
