Bridge of Snow is a short story that tells the tale of Arin's childhood. It is also a prequel to The Winner's Curse.
SummaryEdit"In Arin's childhood, before the war, there was still time to tell stories."
Ignore the stirrings of war. Let the carriage to a royal ball wait. There is a story to be told: of a starless night, a mother and her sick son, and a mortal who falls in love with the snow god, and will do anything to have her...
- "But we don't think too well when we want too much."
- "Her son felt things too deeply to the core, was tender to the core. It worried her."
- "She looked at the boy. He knew her weakness for storytelling. And it was, after all, only a story. Still, she wished he had chosen a happier one."
