Snow Sisters: The Silver Secret

Publisher: Nosy Crow

Review

Triplets Hanna, Ida and Magna live happily on the beautiful frozen island of Nordovia, which is illuminated by the Everchanging Lights that swirl across the skies. As Keeper of the Lights, their mother Freya harnesses the lights’ magic to protect and sustain the island, a role which she will pass on to her daughters when they are older.

On their 12th birthday, the girls come into their magical powers and they can’t wait to discover the nature of their skills, each of which will be different. Alas, their birthday celebrations are thrown into disarray when their parents are kidnapped by Freya’s sister, the evil Shadow Witch, in a bid to steal the lights’ magic for herself. Freya manages to contact her daughters, explaining that she has hidden the lights in three shimmering orbs and scattered them across Nordovia. The girls must combine their newfound magical skills if they are to locate the orbs, rescue their parents and protect their home from the Shadow Witch.

This exciting chapter book with black-and-white illustrations is the first in a series about the magical triplets. Encompassing magic, love, loyalty and bravery, this delightful adventure is ideal for confident young readers.
