17-year-old Snow has been in
a mental hospital for most of her life. She knows she isn't crazy – even when a
mysterious boy shows up in her room and tells her she's the princess of a

than she remembers. Then her love, Bale, is pulled through a mirror and Snow
escapes the mental hospital, determined to save him and learn the truth. Snow
finds herself in the icy land of Algid, frozen in an eternal winter by its
ruthless king, her father. Snow encounters such colorful characters as a River

her mysterious past and learn how to harness her newfound powers. Will Snow be
able to rescue Bale and become the hero and queen that Algid desperately needs?
