By day, Sondrine Renfrew works at Cimmerian's Curio Emporium, her aunt's apothecary and antique shop in London, 1875. By night, she weaves fire, water, and air into both inanimate objects and living creatures. When a hooded stranger offers Sondrine a snow globe in trade for medicinal herbs, she accepts, enchanted by the castle, forest, and sea encapsulated under the glass.

Her enchantment fades, however, when her deceitful aunt betroths her to one of London's wealthiest men--a complete stranger. Determined to escape the marriage, Sondrine trades her corset for trousers and decides to run away. With one foot out the door, she falls down a veritable rabbit hole into Winterhaven, the haunting world inside the snow globe.

Sondrine soon discovers her arrival in Winterhaven is no accident. There, she meets Shán, a man who broods more than the darkened sky above. Turns out Shán is not to be trusted. Not only is he the man who sold Sondrine the snow globe, he is a bounty hunter employed by the king. The beginnings of a sovereign war have been set in motion and an Immortal queen, one who uses fire as a weapon, is set on destroying Winterhaven. Because of her Elemental gifts, only Sondrine has the means to stop the queen. If Sondrine refuses the king's request, he will behead her. If she rises to the challenge of killing the Immortal queen, her death is just as imminent. After all, an Immortal queen cannot be killed.

Or can she?

About the Author

Jenna Nelson grew up in Shoreview, MN, where hanging at the local supermarket was considered a big night out. After graduating from college, she drove her 1979 Buick Electra, the largest car known to man, to California to flee the snow and find refuge in the land of film, her favorite pastime.

A Midwest girl at heart, Jenna lives in Santa Barbara with her husband and their saved-from-the-pound-pup Clancy. By day she works in the real world, by night she weaves tales of nefarious and fantastical worlds.

The Snow Globe Five Star book - hands down ! If you are looking for a compelling story in the genre of Magick, then this is the book for you! Everything that you are looking for is inside The Snow Globe. The story begins with the alluring scents of lavender and leads you through its portals of alchemistic imagery, enchanting you with detailed scenes of enigmatic Magick on every level. The writer has painted this enchanted tale with such elaborate and vivid eloquence. The reader will experience this spiraling story as if they were living inside this riveting world. I felt as if I saw this world through Sondrine’s eyes, sensing every emotion, sight, sound and scent, throughout her journey. Each character held a strong presence and purpose throughout the story. Shán, the main M.C., had the most bewitching and orphic personality. I was intrigued with the exquisite attention to detail, in which the main character works with and weaves her Magickal traits with the Elements. My ever-changing perceptions kept me on edge with every turn of a page. The very moment that you think that you have deciphered a hidden clue or determined what may be, it spirals into an unforeseen direction. The ending is mind blowing and leaves the reader wanting more! Every page is filled with multi-layered mystery and never lets you go! The author is more than just an author. She has created a unique and surreal realm. To compare this book with any other book series, would be unjust. This book is worthy to be recognized by the “Big Five” publishers in NYC. I hope that a television series is created from this soon to be legendary tale. I would love to see this story come alive. Thank you for writing this book Jenna. I look forward to The Snow Globe Two !
