Review

Ophelia and her sister are grieving. They have lost their mother. Now their father has taken them to some mysterious museum where he is readying an exhibit on swords and they are left to wander around all day. But something is weird about  the place. Scientific Ophelia doesn’t really believe in menacing ghosts and strange creatures, but she’s finding them all over the place. Something weird is happening to her sister, and Ophelia does not like the museum director. Ophelia meets the imprisoned Marvelous boy, who implies she has some magical power that she knows nothing about, and it becomes her mission to free him and help save the world from the Snow Queen.  There is a real sense of creepiness throughout the book, and the reader will get sucked in by this telling of a modern take on a classic fairytale.
