This is the second book in the Snow like Ashes series. In this world there are 8 kingdoms. Four of the them are the Seasons (Winter, Spring, Autumn, Summer) and the other four are the Rhythms, which cycle through all the seasons. Meira, who just recently found out she is the queen of Winter, is facing a lot of challenges. In the first 100 pages nothing really happens, but it starts to pick up when Meira goes to the Summer kingdom. She meets Ceridwen, who is my absolute favorite character in the series. Not only is she a princess and a warrior, but she is actually awesome. If you liked the Red Queen series, then I recommend Snow Like Ashes.   Check it out!

Review
Four best friends all share one voice but it gets taken away because of the government. They believe that women do not have the rights to protest or sing or even go on national TV. The group fights their hardest to get their rights but once they do, Asha loses her voice. They have been waiting for this moment and it was taken away all over again. Overall, this book was interesting and compacted with details to reads but it was not one of my favorites. It was not something that stuck in my mind and not all points of the book grabbed my attention. It was a good read but in my opinion, it was not the best.   Check it out!
