Shattered Snow

A magic mirror could change her destiny.

Margaretha von Waldeck is a young German countess who desires nothing more than to honor her father and live up to her step-mother's expectations. But, when she discovers a mysterious mirror in the woods that transforms her world into shadows and ice, her future shatters.

Keltson Grammar is a time traveling vigilante who doesn’t mind breaking a few international laws. Hiding behind mirrors, he rescues unfortunate souls in the past and leads them to happier endings. When he sends his newest assistant to save a young countess from being poisoned, a single misstep sets a huntsman on his trail.


If Keltson is discovered, Margaretha's story will be reset to its original dismal fate, and Keltson’s future will end permanently behind bars.

Shattered Snow is a vivid retelling of the Snow White story from the most unique perspective I've ever encountered. This story manages to do the old tale justice while spinning it in intriguing new ways and bringing all of the well-known and most-loved (and hated!) characters to life. You'll definitely love this book if you enjoy clean, engaging writing and characters that pop off the page. I can hardly wait for the sequel!

-Author Bree Moore, Raven Born

Rachel Huffmire delivers an exciting new take on Snow White in Shattered Snow, combining the origins of the folktale with futuristic time-travel. Her ability to write believable time travel is absolutely amazing with the intricate operation behind her tech and the historical details of the time period. The characters are distinctive and although the romantic subplot is not prevalent throughout the whole book, I was still intrigued to keep reading. This is a truly ingenious retelling and worth the read!

This cleverly twisted tale is stunningly crafted, beautifully developed, and rich in historical detail
