The Snow Owl
By RS McCoy
The Snow Queen Retelling

Book Four in the Alder Tales series
Now Live on Amazon!

*A Paranormal Romance retelling of The Snow Queen*

Audra Mercer is planning to destroy the world. Well, maybe just the realm. It’s taken almost fifteen years for her to rise from the ashes of trauma and place herself at the top of the Aero branch, the prime position to enact her plan to bring the branch hierarchy crashing down. She’ll spare no one and stop at nothing to secure her vengeance. 

As Mercer’s third in command, Blossom is drowning in secrets. She’s lying to her boss, her friends, her allies, her lovers. She’s playing both sides and hoping to have both her life and her happiness by the end. But one misstep will mean showing her colors before she loses everything. 

Following in the footsteps of Gemini’s kidnappers, Raene assumes a Terra identity and allows herself to be taken across the Alderwood. Parson secretly follows, but if he can’t keep up, they’ll lose both Raene and all hope of finding Gemini.

*The Snow Owl is the fourth and final book in The Alder Tales series. Books are not standalones and must be read in order!*

R.S. McCoy’s fertile imagination takes us back into a world where good struggles against evil and love will be tested against the darkness of hate. This entire series has been a journey into another world that is both exciting and amazing to be part of. The Snow Owl is like the dessert after a feast of words, the perfect ending to a perfect meal! Tome Tender

The Snow Owl conclusion to the Alder Tales series kept me on the edge of my seat. The characters in this book as well as all previous have kept me intrigued and wanting so much more from them, I will miss them all. Bookish Sally

So much going on but the author does a wonderful job of tying it all together nice and neat by the end of the book. A great ending too! Clarice's Book Nook

5 out of 5 (exceptional)

The Snow Owl concludes The Alder Tales and as such, you would expect to have the loose ends tied up. R.S. McCoy does this in such a way that your heart is pounding as you read through the book. You WANT that happy ending, and yet you are really unsure if you will get it.

Each of the pairs we have met previously get their time. We catch up with all of them and so we understand on an even deeper level just how their lives will change going forward. There is a whole new twist to the story too, that I for one did not see coming.

This author manages to turn something around on it's head, until you are unsure if you are rooting for the character, or loathe them. Stunning wordsmithery!

There were no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. The pacing was smooth, as were the transitions from one scene to the next. I absolutely recommend this book, but I would also recommend you start from the beginning. This is a series, and not a set of standalones.

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. *
