Time travel is illegal. But Keltson Grammar doesn't mind breaking a few laws.


Known only as “The Mirror”, Keltson runs an underground operation that rescues unfortunate souls from the past. Hiding behind glass, he guides his clients to happier endings. However, a single misstep could send a mysterious huntsman to investigate and 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.


Margaretha is a young German countess who wants nothing more than to forge her own path in life. But when she discovers a mysterious mirror in the woods that transforms her world into shadows and ice, her future shatters. Chased from her familiar home, will she ever find where she truly belongs?

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!
