T. Kingfisher's The Raven and the Reindeer
Ursula Vernon's latest book under the T. Kingfisher moniker (for books intended for older audiences) is her take on the Snow Queen fairy tale--and no surprise, I liked it way better than Frozen! Vernon has a distinct gift for creating animal companions--seriously, so many GREAT animals in this one. Some good people too; I particularly liked the plot development that happened about halfway through involving a mysterious young woman. And of course the main character is likable. But the animals! Ha. A-.
