The Crystal Snowstorm

by Meriol Trevor is a very good book. It is about a girl named Catherine, a boy named Edward, a prince named Constant, a Grand Duke named Edmund, a man named Rafael, [called Raf, for a nickname.] These are only the main characters. If anyone
reads The Crystal Snowstorm, they will meet the other characters.

P.S. There are three seqeuls.
They are:
Following The Phoenix
The Rose and Crown
The Angel and The Dragon.

P.P.S. I have not read the sequels.
