    4.5? Guys, this was such a pleasant read for me! It held so many elements that I look for in a good book! Beautiful writing/descriptions, characters I connect with emotionally, quests of self discovery, a dash of romance, history, folklore and action. I loved the elemental powers and...

    ARC provided by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review (Thank you!) I really liked the author's debut, BEYOND A DARKENED SHORE. However, in this one, I guess this was a case of "it's me not you" thing. THROUGH THE WHITE WOOD was pitched as The Bear and the Ni...

    I was sent an early copy of this in exchange for an honest review. Several months back I discovered Jessica Leake's work in the incredible Beyond a Darkened Shore. While Through the White Wood isn't quite a sequel, it does take place in the same world and we even see characters from...

    Thank you, Edelweiss, for the ARC (and for helping to get me out of my reading slump). Solid 3.5 stars rounded up because I zoomed through this in two days, and it was wonderful to see favorite characters from "Beyond a Darkened Shore" show up. I do feel that there should have been at ...

    Let me start by saying that, although it wasn?t necessary to read Beyond a Darkened Shore before Through the White Wood, I wish I had. Both books take place in the same fantasy world, and some prominent characters from Leake?s first book, make an appearance in this latest. Here?...

    I won the ARC in an Instagram contest and I was so happy to have the book! It was as magical and mystical as "Beyond A Darkened Shore" and I absolutely loved the world and the characters in this book. It made me happy beyond belief to also see Lief and Ciara in this one, because they w...

    3.5 stars (possibly rounded to 4) I read Jessica Leake's "Beyond a Darkened Shore" in this last year and absolutely fell in love with it. It was everything that I wanted in a young adult historical fiction-based novel: just-the-right amount of romance, strong female lead, complex f...

    This review was originally posted on The Moonlight Library Through the White Wood appealed to me because I love elemental-based magic, especially when it's ice/water vs fire. I also learned through reading the book that it's based in an area of Russia centuries ago, except this v...

    Through the White Wood by Jessica Leake is the brilliantly told story of Katya and Sasha, an orphaned village girl and a prince. Katya was forced out of her home when the ice powers that she has got out of hand(I personally think it was well warranted). Her village contacts the prince ...

    I really enjoy this author?s writing, but this story wasn?t as impactful or entertaining as her last book about Ciara and Lief. There may not have been anything wrong with this book, per se; it has elements I loved and a slow yet predictable romance. It just wasn?t as good for me...
