The heat of the summer sun bakes the streets of Prague, but Lumikki’s heart is frozen solid.
Looking to escape the notoriety caused by the part she played in taking down Polar Bear’s crime ring, seventeen-year-old Lumikki Andersson escapes to Prague, where she hopes to find a few weeks of peace among the hordes of tourists. But not long after arriving, she’s cornered by a skittish and strange young woman who claims to be her long-lost sister. The woman, Lenka, is obviously terrified, and even though Lumikki doesn’t believe her story—although parts of it ring true—she can’t just walk away.
Lumikki quickly gets caught up in Lenka’s sad and mysterious world, uncovering pieces of a mystery that take her from the belly of a poisonous cult to the highest echelons of corporate power. On the run for her life again, Lumikki must use all her wits to survive, but in the end, she just may discover she can’t do it all alone.
As White As Snow is the second book in the Snow White Trilogy. (The first in the series is As Red as Blood) I am really enjoying this series so far. They are such easy and quick reads. This was a fairly short book with only 224 pages. It was a fast paced mystery. I really enjoyed the story and Lumikki is such an interesting and unique main character. There are little twists and turns that kept me interested throughout the entire novel. It also left me with a few questions. (I need answers now!) I have a NetGalley of As Black as Ebony that I can’t wait to start. The third and final book in the trilogy is set to be released in September of this year.
