THAW Series Launch!

Hello, everyone! I'm finally breaking my silence to join the blog hop for a new fairytale retelling series that just released this weekend: Thaw, by E. Kaiser Writes!

The Thaw series, books 1-3:

 Winter's Child
A barren king and queen pray for a child, and when in their loneliness, they make one out of snow, their prayers are answered in a special, and unusual way. 

 Sometimes, when we get what we wish for, we don't know what to do with it.

Winter's Queen
A slightly pampered girl allows her avoidance behavior to isolate her from the world... and it's only when she takes the final step that the realizes the wall she's built in the name of safety is also the one that will hold her prisoner forever... unless she discovers how to destroy it.

 The only one who can break a neurosis... is the one who has it.

Prince of Demargen
The whole world knows his guilt, and is absolutely correct about it, but how far can a man go to regain respect so swiftly lost?
 Or is an honorable death the best a fallen star can hope for?

 The only person who can help him... is the one he most deeply wronged.

I'm always excited for new fairy tale remakes, and these ones sound really cool (pun very much intended). They retell the stories, "The Snow Maiden", "The Snow Queen" (of Frozen fame), "Snegurken" (which I had to look up because I've never heard of it), and others. Since I haven't seen a lot of retellings of these fairy tales, I'm eager to find out what the Thaw series will be like. Apparently, there's also going to be a spin-off series with retellings of "The Twelve Dancing Princesses", "Cinderella", "Rapunzel", and possibly others, which I'm nearly as excited about. (Anyone want to guess which one in particular I'm most looking forward to?)  On her site, the author describes the series as "a ride into the world of the unknown, on glittering icy swans and a wind that can blow you anywhere you'd least expect it"- sounds like lots of fun to me!

So, who else is excited for the Thaw series?
