by Claire Legrand
Clara Stole has much to fear. Her father has been taken by strange and deadly creatures to Cane, a war-torn land of snow, faeries, and magic. To find him, Clara must rely of the cursed prince Nicholas, if she can trust him. But before she can save her father, Clara may have to save Cane first. In this dark, Nutcracker-inspired fairy tale, Clara’s journey is a harrowing one, filled with danger and sorrow and love, one that readers won’t forget.
