The story reminded me of the Snow Queen. It's kinda a modern day fairytale. And some of it is rather beautiful. But I don't think I enjoyed the writing style very much. Though I can't really explain why. I liked the pacing of it, the way Link used prose to give it a rhythm to speed or slow down the story. So while I think this was well crafted, for some reason I just didn't connect with Miranda or any other character. A well told story but sadly not quite for me.
