Lorehaven reviews Rose Petals and Snowflakes

Rose Petals and Snowflakes begin falling when author Kendra E. Ardnek combines Jane Austen–style storylines with fairy tales. This yields a delightful fantasy romance with callbacks to both genres while creating her own new style. In this story, Elinrose knows the dangers of the Forest, but events keep pulling her back into its dark mysteries. Now she must determine how to protect her family and her kingdom while learning what the Forest wants from her. Rose Petals and Snowflakes invites readers into the Austen Fairy Tales series, challenging a heroine’s conflicting responsibilities to herself, her family, and her society.

Best for: Lovers of fairy tales, romance, and Jane Austen.

Discern: Magic use and magical fantasy creatures, light romantic elements.

Lorehaven Guild logo 1.1About the Lorehaven Guild

The Lorehaven Guild serves a community of heroes who gather to celebrate Christian-made fantastical fiction with delight and discernment. These stories include (but are not limited to) fantasy, science fiction, and beyond.

Heroes of the Guild will explore their favorite creative works in these genres. We will focus on Christian-made stories, yet occasionally include general market books.

Guild heroes can join monthly Main Quest parties that travel into the fantastical worlds of new books. We will explore these stories’ beauty, goodness, and truth (and opposites!), applying their meanings to the real world of our ultimate Author.

Heroes can also join occasional Side Quest parties that travel into other books, such as older Christian-made stories or general market novels.
