Críticas:

Starred Review, Kirkus, November 1, 2013:
"A well-wrought, poignant and original reworking of Andersen's 'The Snow Queen.'"

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, November 11, 2013:
"Foxlee's writing is elegant and accessible, with a pervading melancholy... this story shines."

Starred Review, Booklist, December 15, 2013:
"This clever story-within-a-story reads easily yet offers deep lessons about trust, responsibility, and friendship."

Starred Review, The Bulletin, February 1, 2014:
"Foxlee inventively weaves familiar folkloric elements--an evil snow queen, a magic sword, a quest, a chosen one--into her modern setting, all the while evoking a mood of dreamlike foreboding. Atmospheric, full-spread monochromatic illustrations open each of the book's three parts, adding to the story's sense of magic."

The Horn Book, January/February 2014:
"Foxlee's deftness with characterization and setting...makes this a satisfying fantasy."

The Wall Street Journal, January 25, 2014:
"A present-day fairy tale that practically sparkles with its own icy menace...[a] memorable and ultimately moving novel for young readers."
The Christian Science Monitor, January 31, 2014:
"Foxlee's novel will be read and loved by youngsters who've grown up on fairy tales, graduated to Harry Potter, and appreciate gorgeous writing and complex storytelling. In this story of friendship and yes, even bravery, Ophelia shines as one of the first true heroines of the 2014 crop of fabulous middle-grade novels."

Reseña del editor:

-Magic is -messy and dangerous and filled with longing, - we learn in this brave tale of grief, villainy and redemption that borrows from the story of the Snow Queen. Set in a vast, chilly museum, the tale brings together a valiant girl, a charmed boy, a magical sword and a clock ticking down to the end of the world.---The Wall Street Journal

This is the story of unlikely heroine Ophelia Jane Worthington-Whittard who doesn't believe in anything that can't be proven by science. She and her sister Alice are still grieving for their dead mother when their father takes a job in a strange museum in a city where it always snows. On her very first day in the museum Ophelia discovers a boy locked away in a long forgotten room. He is a prisoner of Her Majesty, the Snow Queen. And he has been waiting for Ophelia's help.
As Ophelia embarks on an incredible journey to rescue the boy everything that she believes will be tested. Along the way she learns more and more about the boy's own remarkable journey to reach her and save the world.
A story within a story, this a modern day fairytale about the power of friendship, courage and love, and never ever giving up.
