Book Review – A Shiver of Snow and Sky by Lisa Lueddecke

shiver of snow and skyRed, red, the lights glow red
Beware the danger up ahead…

On the frozen island of Skane, the sky speaks. Beautiful lights appear on clear nights, and their colours have meaning: Green means all is well, and the Goddess is happy. Blue means a snow storm is on the way.

And then there’s red. Red is rare. A warning.

Seventeen years ago, the sky turned red just as Ósa was born, unleashing a plague that claimed the lives of hundreds of villagers, including her own mother. This time, when the night sky once again bleeds crimson, she must discover how to stop the onslaught before so many lives are lost again.

Wow! I enjoyed this book the whole way through but I was definitely loving it the most at the end. It’s a slow but gorgeous start, and gets stronger as you go. I loved the world it’s set in, and Ósa’s strength and courage and pain. After she gets to the mountains, it really becomes worth the 4.5 stars I am giving this book! I also like stories within stories, and was really loving that element here.
