Publisher: Chicken House

On the day of her Choosing, Sabira is haunted by memories of her lost brother and anxieties about the future of her mountain city.

Nevertheless, she is selected to make the honourable but perilous climb up the holy glacier to bond with a frostsliver, a living fragment of the mountain that will grant its recipient great power and protection.

When a huge avalanche cuts off her only route home, Sabira is determined to find another way off the mountain but doesn’t understand what dark and deadly secrets lie in its depths.

This is a truly magical adventure with a real human touch. Sabira is a feisty, relatable heroine whose experience of self-doubt makes her determination all the more admirable. Featuring a convincing political backstory, fabulous world-building, icy mutants and deadly monsters, this is an ideal winter read.
