    BOOK REVIEW ¿ Winter Queen: From Seasons of Fantasy by Aubrie Dionne

    The Winter Queen releases no one from her misery. The men who dare pass into her realm suffer as she does. Mercy is offered to no one. Her icy grip encompasses the season, waiting for the next tragedy.

    This short story is riveting right from the beginning. The emotions of the characters grab hold of you, taking you along on a mystical, painful journey of love lost. It is a tale of icy heartbreak melted only by the passion true love can bring.

    Author, Aubrie Dionne has done a magnificent job bringing her characters to life. Their agony and joy becomes your own in just a few pages. This soul-searching story can be read on a lunch break, but the lessons will stay with you much longer.

    Lee-Ann Graff-Vinson, Author of Callie¿s Fate, Love¿s Trust, Georgia¿s Smile.

    Winter Queen

    A short, but lush tale of a snow queen, doomed to roam the earth in cold isolation. The author weaves beautiful words and scenic descriptions together to quickly create a landscape of treacherous winter. A small boy, whose favorite tale is of the snow queen, harbors compassion, not fear and hatred in his heart. The Queen, cursed and bitter, lures fortune hunters to their deaths. As a young man approaches, without gifts, bribes, or weapons for defense, she is curious. Can the young man, formerly the small boy, melt the snow queen's heart and restore hope to her bitter soul? Very beautifully written-I could feel the cold and see the snow covered hills....worth the read!

    Sympathy for the Snow Queen

    Winter Queen is the first of four short books by Abrie Dionne in the Seasons of Fantasy series and it's a beautiful lunchtime read.

    The tale opens in the depths of winter with a small boy asking his mother for a bedtime story. The piece he chooses is one she's reluctant to read, lyrical but cold, reciting the woes of an ice-gowned lady luring fortune-hunters to death. The mother's reading paints a beautiful picture, laced with white and jeweled with ice. And the boy falls asleep with sadness for the lady haunting his dreams.

    The next scene reveals a young man's quiet approach to the haunted bridge, white winds that fight to still his beating heart, and a woman who waits. It's a beautiful story, reminiscent of fairytales from long ago. The words play music and tug the reader's soul into memories of innocence. And maybe, at last, I'll choose not to hate the Snow Queen, whose story I so resolutely refused to read as a child.

    It's only 19 pages long, but it's a lovely tale and I really enjoyed it.
