The Winter King by C. L. Wilson

The Winter King (Weathermages of Mystral, #1)

by C. L. Wilson

An epic new fantasy romance from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author C. L. Wilson

After three long years of war, starkly handsome Wynter Atrialan will have his vengeance on Summerlea's king by taking one of the man's beautiful, beloved daughters as his bride. But though peace is finally at hand, Wynter's battle with the Ice Heart, the dread power he embraced to avenge his brother's death, rages on.

Khamsin Coruscate, Princess of Summerlea and summoner of Storms, has spent her life exiled to the shadows of her father's palace. Reviled by her father, marriage to Wintercraig's icy king was supposed to be a terrible punishment, but instead offers Kham her first taste of freedom-and her first taste of overwhelming passion.

As fierce, indomitable Wynter weathers even Khamsin's wildest storms, surprising her with a tenderness she never expected, Kham wants more than Wynter's passion-she yearns for his love. But the power of the Ice Heart is growing, dangerous forces are gathering, and a devastating betrayal puts Khamsin and Wynter to the ultimate test.

Once upon a time I was a regular human being checking my timeline in the morning before going to class and I spotted Ashley, from Nosegraze's tweet about a book she'd read that had rocked her socks. It wall all too easy for me to fall and give in and buy the book. And now I've been destroyed by the utter awesomeness that this perfectly-paced book is.

Not once did I feel that any scene was unnecessary. I didn't skip anything. I just read and read. I read in class, I read while I was eating, then I read well into the night and fell asleep and then in the morning I started reading again and I finished and now I don't know what to do. Help.
