I would consider Snow City to be speculative fiction. It suspends the rules of our own reality without truly being science fiction. The main character, Echo, lives in a world of her own creation. It started as a dream to escape from her own harsh reality until one day she woke up to find herself a true citizen. For months she stayed in the background content to watch the world around her. That is until she found another who needed her help.
When Echo takes guardianship of Chastity, a sixteen-year-old ghost, she is forced to live within the realm of Snow City. The more she becomes involved in the world the more she starts to question her own perfect fantasy.
Kathryns writing has a certain charm. It is a bit distant and mystical, yet it works for this piece. The story starts off slow, mostly because coming into the world with little explanation is extremely confusing. Yet, the story still grips you and holds you until the end. This is a great read if you are looking for something a little different.
