The Snow Queen by Mercedes Lackey

The Snow Queen (New York:  LUNA-Worldwide Library, 2008) is the fourth book in Mercedes Lackey‘s Five Hundred Kingdoms series. It is a delightful meta-fairy tale.  (As a prefix, meta- can mean “more comprehensive : transcending” as in metaphysics (“meta-“).  I call it that because the novel is about a “fairy godmother” who manipulates people and Tradition to make the tales turn out right.

I wish I’d started reading the books in order, but I’ll go back to the first one now and read the rest of them:

Beauty and the Werewolf is scheduled for release next month.

Until I was just looking over her bibliography, I hadn’t realized there were so many of Lackey’s novels that I haven’t read.
