Jessica Day George’s Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow


Norwegian Fairy tale adaptation


To be honest, I read this because I have read East of the Sun, West of the Moon and fell in love with this Norwegian fairy tale.

George stays true to the fairy tale, which I was really pleased about. For those who do not know, this fairy tale is similar to Beauty and the Beast, and I give it a 10/10. I love this fairy tale, just like I do the Greek myth version of the same story. It seems to be a classic in so many cultures and that amazes me.

Lass is a relatable character, strong and persevering. I love the fact that she rescues her prince rather than being rescued. I don’t want to give anything away because this novel (and others like it) are absolutely incredible.

Big thumbs up to Jessica Day George – thank you for writing this and satisfying my Norwegian needs. It is perfect to snuggle up and drink Hot chocolate with.

Who Is It For?

EVERYONE! Anyone who loves Beauty and the Beast, Cupid and Psyche or Hades and Persephone type stories!
