SUMMARY (from Goodreads):
Kai and Ginny grew up together–best friends since they could toddle around their building’s rooftop rose garden. Now they’re seventeen, and their relationship has developed into something sweeter, complete with stolen kisses and plans to someday run away together.

But one night, Kai disappears with a mysterious stranger named Mora–a beautiful girl with a dark past and a heart of ice. Refusing to be cast aside, Ginny goes after them and is thrust into a world she never imagined, one filled with monsters and thieves and the idea that love is not enough.

If Ginny and Kai survive the journey, will she still be the girl he loved–and moreover, will she still be the girl who loved him?
COLD SPELL: also known as Elsa Gone Wild.

COLD SPELL is the fourth book in Jackson Pearce's Fairytale Retelling series, and a retelling of the Snow Queen, which made me think of FROZEN all through reading it. But, unlike FROZEN this book was more true to the actual fairytale. There's no Olaf, no Hans (much to my disappointment), and a lack of funny reindeer.
But that doesn't mean that I did not absolutely LOVE this book. The interweaving of the Snow Queen fairytale with the mythology created in the past three books was absolutely flawless. The writing was fantastic, as always, and the Snow Queen was so badass, even though she was evil. (what is it with villains being so compelling?)
Actually, this whole books is flawless. There wasn't one thing about it that I didn't like. It was absolutely FANTASTIC! I highly recommend this series if you have not started already!

CONTENT: Kissing, mild swearing, and moderate violence.
