At the center of the chaos is Polar Bear, the mythical drug lord who has managed to remain anonymous despite his lavish parties and notorious reputation.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Ann Marie Lee narrates the opening book of this Snow White trilogy…Lee’s reading is as active and dramatic as the quick-paced story. She is facile at shifting between viewpoints and accents, dialogue, and narrative.” AudioFile
“This cold, delicate snowflake of a tale sparkles with icy magic.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Readers should be prepared for stark imagery (red blood seeping into fresh snow) and some mature themes in this suspenseful page-turner.” Booklist (starred review)
“Simukka creates a tough, self-sufficient heroine in seventeen-year-old Lumikki Andersson.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“A compelling start, a strong female character, the rich background setting of Finland, and a hint of a Snow White retelling.” School Library Journal
“The Arctic setting of this import is used to full advantage, evoking a chilling mood and strewing genuine frigid weather obstacles in Lumikki’s way.” Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
“A teen read-alike for the popular and gritty Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series by Stieg Larsson..Written for older teens and adults, the book delves into drugs and sex and uses language associated with the criminal underworld.” VOYA
