Review: Amid the Winter Snow Anthology

Review: Amid the Winter Snow Anthology Amid the Winter Snow Anthology Authors: Grace Draven, Thea Harrison, Jeffe Kennedy, Elizabeth Hunter Reviewer: Una Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Amid the Winter Snow is a deliciously enthralling anthology set in fantasy worlds near and far.  I loved all four offerings.  For ease of writing this review, I’ve given my thoughts in the order they are written as well as individual ratings.
