I'm not sure how to describe this book without getting bogged down in just reciting the plot. There's a moneylender's daughter who catches the eye of a winter fairy lord who wants her to turn silver into gold, but there's also a story about a demon and a Czar and everything gets tangled together and it's still snowing by June, basically. I liked it, and I thought it started off great but the dénouement just seemed to take a little too long. I mean, it wasn't a simple wrap up, which is good, but at one point I thought it was pretty much over and then discovered I still had three more hours to listen to.
The narration is good, but I don't think I'd recommend the audiobook because there are several point of view characters, all of whom are written in the first person and with no indication of scene breaks. So it got very confusing at a few points and I'm still not sure I caught everything.
