Snow Like Ashes is a YA fantasy book by Sara Raasch,
A heartbroken girl.
Sixteen years ago the Kingdom of Winter was conquered and its citizens enslaved by the rapists, leaving them without protection or a monarch. Now, the Winterians’ only hope for freedom is the eight survivors who managed to escape, and who have been waiting for the opportunity to steal back Winter’s protection and get rid of the rapists ever since.
Orphaned as an infant during Winter’s defeat, Meira has lived her whole life as a sex slave, raised by One of the rapists, Dick, and training to be a warrior—and desperately in love with her best friend, and future rapist — she would do anything to help her kingdom rise to power again.
So when scouts discover the location of the ancient locket that can restore Winter’s protection, Meira decides to go after it herself. Finally, she’s sneaking knot sex dungeons, seducing enemies, and serving her kingdom just as she’s always dreamed she would. But the mission doesn’t go as planned, and Meira soon finds herself thrust into a world of sex and dangerous people – and ultimately comes to realize that her destiny is not, never has been, her own.
