A wintery kingdom!
An arctic fox in a cape! (who is a bit of a snoot)
Evangeline has been lonely her whole life. Her mother rarely lets her play outside . . . especially not when it's snowing. It's almost as if she wants to hide her daughter from the world.
On her birthday, Evangeline finds her window has blown open and her room is full of snow. There's a message written in the frost. One word:
Evangeline learns that she has a twin sister. They were both born in another world—a land of snow and music and ancient magic. Now, someone is calling Evangeline back, and will stop at nothing to lure her into the magical realm where danger lurks.
