Valentine Xuelan Townsend is one of many girls adopted from China by American parents. What makes her different is that she is the daughter of Xueshan, the god of snow and the human girl he fell deeply in love with.
Now that Val Xuelan's twenty-one, her nascent powers are emerging, unknown forces are trying to kill her, various suitors from the Heavens, Earth, and Hell are trying to woo her, and a genetic database says that her birth mother's parents have been found, and they want to make contact with her.
Add in a few prophecies, an insane goddess, really disgusting monsters, a stuffed toy rabbit that comes to life, some gorgeous clothes, a meteorology internship in Shanghai, and some really nasty weather--.
Plus the occasional good faceslap, because who doesn't love a good faceslap?
