    Description

    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.

    Margaretha is a young countess, destined to be poisoned at 21. 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?

    Simply Brilliant!

    Few people know how to capture the imaginations of all whose eyes wander upon the pages of their writing. Some people do this rather well but show formulaic patterns hidden in their work. For Rachel Huffmire this all comes as natural as breathing with none of her formula visible to the reader. Brilliantly written with classical prose that lend credibility to her writing as well as deep characters that keep you invested in their personal journeys, this novel will not disappoint. Whether youre a teen or adult, boy or girl, donkey or horse, you will love this book! It is Amazing!

    Excellent Book!

    I was a little hesitant when I discovered the premise, but I was very happy when I got into it. The concept of time travel is usually a sticky subject, but the author did a fantastic job with the world building. The world that developed as a result of time travel being available was very well done and made the book very interesting and fun. I loved the main villain in the book and the narration was very well done. Good job on mastering so many accents!

    Brilliantly Crafted Tale

    This book was amazing. It was not your typical fairytale retelling. The way everything was brought about was completely new and intriguing. As someone who is usually able to guess the plot and most twists in a book, I loved that it kept me guessing throughout and I was wrong almost every time. Hands down the most unique version of a fairytale I’ve ever read.

    Wished it wouldn't end

    Such a fun way to spin fairy tales and time! I wish I could write a review as good as this book. Sadly I cannot right nearly well enough to explain how much I enjoyed it. The story line kept me wishing I had more time to listen every day. The narrator had great voices and spoke in a way to keep me actively listening. I can't wait to see where this story line leads and find my imagination coming with so many different scenarios that probably won't even measure up to the next book ( specifically because I was constantly and pleasantly surprised by the direction the book kept taking). Thank you for taking my mind on this great adventure!

    Great Listen

    I loved this story the first time I read it. I loved it more listening to it. The author's characters really come to live by the narrator. She switches effortlessly from accent to accent. Definently a must read/listen.

    excellent story, amazing audio narration!

    The story was interesting, entertaining and intelligently written. The vocal narration was amazing (So many accents! ) and very engaging! I usually don't go for "rewritten fairytales", but this one actually makes the original story make more sense. Young teens to adults will enjoy this. Well done!

    History with a modern timey wimey twist!

    Shattered Snow is a delight and Rachel White’s performance brought it to life. I was surprised and very pleased by her use of accents. I never questioned who was speaking. The story itself is unique and fun to follow. It has a depth that intrigues you but not so much that you’re distracted by the science or overwhelmed by details. Definitely recommend!

    Incredible retelling in every way!

    Because this is an Audible review, I should start with this: I'm VERY picky about audiobook narrators. But from the get-go, I loved the narrator for this story, and NOT ONCE did I think "Oh, I don't like that." Which...I don't think has ever happened to me before. This is a great listen.

    As for the story itself, it blew me away. Rachel Huffmire is a true craftsman. To think, you can know a story your entire life and yet someone can take that story and recreate it in a way that is so delightfully true to the original, yet you can't see what's coming next! And the ending was just so much more satisfying than I ever dreamed it could be. I feel like this story did everything right.
    A word here about time travel. Everyone knows time travel is risky because 'plot holes galore' in just about every popular time-travel story--but this one was an absolute triumph. Rachel pulled together all the mechanics and rules of her world, covering the bases in plot, and explaining enough to keep me believing. It never felt like a crutch OR a cliche. It was masterful.
    Couldn't recommend this book enough. I am on the edge of my seat for the next one!

    An amazing debut!

    I had no idea this was this author's first published novel -- and that's a good thing. Time travel stories can get murky, and Huffmire also takes time to carefully weave in lore which had to make it even trickier. Towards the end there was so much jumping that I started ignoring the dates and following the story, but in this case it still worked.

    Even though I enjoyed trying to match bits and pieces to well-known fairy tales, I also enjoyed the story itself for what it was.

    This is my first time hearing Rachel White narrate and she knocked it out of the park IMO.

    There are signs of a sequel or two by the end, and while this story stands extremely well on its own, I'd be down to continue the journey.

    I took a shot and requested a free review copy of this audiobook from the publisher, and I'm very glad they allowed me the opportunity. I sincerely recommend this listen!

    New twist on classic fairy tale

    I’ll admit I wasn’t quite sure what this book was about at first other than time travel, but as I got into the story and it became more relevant to the plot, I really did enjoy this book and finished it within two days. It’s sc-fi twist on very well known classic tale. I liked the character build up as you realize who each character represents in the tale. And the narrator did excellent job on different character voices and accents of each. I definitely recommend this book to all it is definitely worth credit in my opinion. I was given this audiobook for free in exchange for honest review which I absolutely always do rather I liked it or not and I definitely liked this one.
