Staff Reviews

Dittemore creates an alien world and imbues it with tidbits from the real world. Just enough so it doesn't go off the rails, but not so much that it dampens the otherworldliness of the novel. Great sense of place in this. Sylvi is a tough heroine. Things don't turn out the way she, or the reader, anticipate which makes the pages fly by. Plus, the cover is awesome!

Praise For…

"Shannon Dittemore has constructed a wholly unique world in Winter, White and Wicked that you won't find traces of in any other fantasy. This refreshing read takes you down the treacherous ice roads of Layce, and stays with you long after the journey."

— Adrienne Young, New York Times bestselling author of Sky in the Deep and The Girl the Sea Gave Back

“This magical story, teeming with grim lore, grotesque monsters, and gripping mysticism, swept me up like a winter gale and wouldn’t let me go. It was a privilege to meet Sylvi—a heroine as fierce and boundless as an arctic tundra—and to witness the thawing of her icy heart as she learns the value of friendship, found-family, and faith. Winter, White and Wicked transported me on a gritty, action-packed, and atmospheric journey across a wickedly glacial landscape, and I can’t wait to return again!”

— A. G. Howard, #1 New York Times and international bestselling author of the Splintered series

"Winter, White and Wicked is a story that'll sink into your bones. The world is wholly unique, imaginative, and dangerous, the magic beautiful, but with bite. Dittemore offers a fresh, adventurous tale set in a frozen landscape, complete with a truck that's a character in its own right. I could not turn the pages fast enough."

— Isabel Ibañez, author of Woven in Moonlight

"A rare mix of equal parts lushly mysterious world-building and heart-pounding action. It will give you all the feels."

— Maxine Kaplan, author of The Accidental Bad Girl and Wench

“A fresh, compelling fantasy that will keep you captivated from start to finish! I didn't know I needed a story that was half Mad Max: Fury Road and half Frozen-meets-Ice Road Truckers, but I did, and so do you.”

— C. J. Redwine, New York Times bestselling author of The Shadow Queen

"A motley crew takes a dangerous road trip… Cinematic."

— Kirkus Reviews

"A truly unique tale that will leave readers shivering with anticipation for the next installment"

— School Library Journal

"Readers will want hitch onto this propulsive, adrenaline-fueled ride through a dangerously thrilling and chilling landscape."

— Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

". . . The intriguing concept and high-interest themes make this debut a good choice for larger collections."
