Fairytales aren’t real…yeah…that’s exactly what Bianca thought. She was wrong.

For generations, the Frost family has run the Museum of Magical and Rare Artifacts, handing down guardianship from mother to daughter, always keeping their secrets to “family only.”

Gathered within museum’s walls is a collection dedicated to the Grimm fairy tales and to the rare items the family has acquired: Cinderella’s glass slipper, Snow White’s poisoned apple, the evil queen’s magic mirror, Sleeping Beauty’s enchanted spinning wheel…

Seventeen-year-old Bianca Frost wants none of it, dreaming instead of a career in art or photography or…well, anything except working in the family’s museum. She knows the items in the glass display cases are fakes because, of course, magic doesn’t really exist.

She’s about to find out how wrong she is.

And now a word from our wonderful guest! 
Magical Items/ Working in the Museum

What are some of your favorite fairy tales? What magical item would you like to use and what would you use it for?
There are TONS of items in the Museum of Magical and Rare Artifact, some that are on display and some that are hidden within the museum walls.
Here are some of the items that are used in First Frost & Glass Frost as well as some of their magical properties.
1. Brick from The Third Little Pigs house (from the fairy tale The Three Little Pigs). This brick has the power to become an indestructible house. Nothing will be able to get inside or outside. All Bianca has to do to ‘activate’ the house is put the brick down and say ‘Not by the hair on my chiny chin chin’.
2. Rapunzel’s hair. It is a long braid of golden hair that is approximately seven feet long. By chanting a spell the hair grows up to four times in length. Bianca uses this in First Frost in order to climb down the edge of a cliff. It’s her least favorite part in that particular adventure. LOL
3. Little Red Riding Hood’s cape. This has the power tell  you which is the safest path to take in order to reach your destination. Bianca uses this item in First Frost and Glass Frost. She’s still learning just how much this particular item can do and I have plans on using it on the third book of the series.
4. The Little Hand Mirror. This was an item that once belonged to Queen Mirabel (Snow White’s stepmother) it can show you anything you wish to see. Bianca used this in First Frost and trapped the wicked witch Lenore inside of it.
5. Apple seeds. Snow White took apple seeds to encapsulate some of her blood, protective spells and other enchantments in order to use them in a hurry. One of the dwarves gives them to her when she visits their cottage in Glass Frost. The catch is that whenever you use one of the seeds you lose an hour of your life. Magic comes at a price.
6. The Magic Mirror. This item makes a special appearance in First Frost but I still haven’t figured out if I’m going to use it in book #3. This mirror is very old and Queen Mirabel was but one of its many owners.
7. Mismatched teacup and saucer. This is part of the Alice in Wonderland display case in the Museum of Magical and Rare Artifacts. I’m still trying to figure out what exactly these items will do. I’m sure it’ll be awesome. :D
8. Cinderella’s Glass Slipper. Bianca and Rose are owners of one of Cinderella’s glass slippers. They were separated when Helena aka Cinderella passed away, because together the slippers have the power to grant your heart's desire. And in the wrong hands the slippers can cause an incredible amount of destruction.
There are tons of other items in the Museum of Magical and Rare Artifacts but I can’t give it all away. Need to save some surprises for later in the series. ;)
