Summary
"Chosen for the honour of bonding with a frostsliver, a fragment of the sentient glacier that crests her icy home, Sabira embarks on the dangerous pilgrimage to the top of the mountain. But when a huge avalanche traps her on the glacier and destroys the pass, Sabira is determined to find another way home. In order to survive, she must face up to the merciless mountain, but there are dark and fiery secrets hiding in its depths..."--Page [2] of cover

Review
Smith's adventure begins as 14-year-old Sabira climbs up the dangerous mountain Aderast with her uncle Mihnir and the Frost-Cleric Tserah to bond with the frostsliver, a piece of the mystic glacier that would grant her powers. Only one in every 100 who come of age in the fictional city of Adranna is chosen to visit the glacier each year, and Sabira is more nervous than excited. Only six months ago Sabira lost her brother, Kyran, to the mountain; although Kyran was originally chosen by the frost clerics to bond with the frostsliver, an attack by some men from the neighboring Ignatian ethnic group injured Kyran's leg permanently, causing him to attempt the dangerous bonding without any guidance. Driven by the loss of her brother, Sabira completes the final leg of her trek and manages to get some frostsliver. An unexpected avalanche, however, kills Tserah and wounds Mihnir, making their journey back practically impossible. It is up to Sabira to battle her way through the snow and cold, avoid mythical creatures such as the yeti, and find her way back home to save her uncle. Although Smith's novel has some magical elements, the adventure set in an almost barren, icy, South Asia-like wilderness drives the plot. Readers know little about Sabira's ethnicity apart from her name, but her quick wit, grit, and quiet determination are instrumental in her very real quest for survival. Lovers of adventure stories will enjoy this fast-paced, action-packed novel. (Fantasy. 8-12) (Kirkus Reviews, August 1, 2019)
