The Winter King
by C. L. Wilson
Avon Books, 2014, 594pp
Published: July 2014

Lush, romantic, alive with magic and the tension of tragedies past that threaten to overwhelm all possible futures, The Winter King is a grand foray into worlds of ice and fire, love lost and love found.

Khamsin Coruscate finds herself pledged in marriage to Wynter Arialan, king of Wintercraig, as part of the price of peace between two kingdoms. The two of them find solace with each other for the dire losses that have sustained previously, and their marriage becomes the paradigm for a genuine alliance. But Wynter is falling under the influence of the Ice Heart, the magic of which makes him tremendously powerful at the cost of his humanity. By the time he and Khamsin discover that they are being manipulated in a cruel game, it is almost too late.

Wilson balances action, character development, and elegant descriptions of place in her narrative most pleasingly. ~~ Chris R. Paige
