Margaretha is a young countess, destined to be poisoned at twenty-one. But when she discovers a mysterious mirror in the woods that transforms the world into shadows and ice, her future shatters. Chased from her familiar home, will she ever find where she truly belongs?
In 2069, time-travel is restricted to observation and research. But Keltson Grammar doesn’t mind breaking a few laws. Known only as "The Mirror", Keltson runs an underground empire that rescues unfortunate souls throughout history. However, a single misstep could send an entire agency to reinstate his clients to their original dismal fates.
Lilia Vaschenko is a Russian mechanic surrounded by cinderblock towers, ladders she cannot climb, and a glass ceiling that holds her down like a casket. She'll do anything to escape--- even work for the world's most wanted renegade.
Shattered Snow is a YA science-fiction retelling of Snow White. It is based on the real-life history of Margaretha von Waldeck, a sixteenth-century countess that may have inspired the Grimm brothers’ fairy tale.
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!

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!
