Book Review: Thaw: Winter's Queen

 Image result for Thaw: Winter's Queen

Summary: A slightly pampered girl allows her avoidance behavior to isolate her from the world... and it's only when she takes the final step that she realizes the wall she's built in the name of safety is also the one that will hold her prisoner forever... unless she discovers how to destroy it. 
  The only one who can break a neurosis... is the one who has it. 
Combining elements from the Snow Maiden, Schneekind, Snegurochka tales with those of the Snow Queen; Winter Queen continues a new series: THAW. 

Thoughts: I admit, I was pretty disappointed with this book. While the prequel had already forewarned me that the author (E. Kaiser Writes) was retelling Disney's Frozen, I was still hoping for some originality with the way the main points were reached and carried out. Obviously that didn't happen and I felt more like the author had simply renamed the cast. I still suggest it for a read aloud to young children as they might thoroughly enjoy the Frozen aspect without wanting much else from the plot (little girls in particular should enjoy this). 

Content: Zip. Perfectly clean aside from a tiny bit of violence and someone might have died. They don't go into much detail about and I was pretty surprised to find something like that in such a book but again, it wasn't very clear. Aside from that there isn't a thing though I do disagree with some of the messages in this story, I leave it up to parents as to how to interpret them to young children (nothing offensive simply not my interpretation of certain situations).
