Publisher's Summary

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 Winter rise to power again.
So when scouts discover the location of the ancient locket that can restore their magic, Meira decides to go after it herself. Finally, she's scaling towers and fighting enemy soldiers 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.
Sara Raasch's debut fantasy is a lightning-fast tale of loyalty, love, and finding one's destiny.

Brilliant narration! Fantastic story!

Where does Snow Like Ashes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book, obviously, is well written; however, I'm not sure if it's half as good as I think it is thanks to the brilliance of the narrator. She makes the characters live and breathe, infused with characterization. The story is vivid and entrancing. It pulls you in and never lets you go. I can't wait for the next one!

Narrator

The narrator can make a world of difference in an audible book. I have listened to this one before and was quickly reminded how every voice is the same. The men's voices are a little deeper but they all sound the same. A drawn out gravely sound at the end of each sentence. She also doesn't speak in sentences, it's word by word by word. The story jumps a lot. I thought it could have been so much more in depth to capture the listener but it just wasn't there. The narrator does have a very strong voice, she just needs to work at changing it up a bit.
