Book Review: The Winter King

The Winter King

by C.L. Wilson.

The Winter King When the rep from Harper Collins/Avon contacted me to see if I’d be interested in reviewing an advance copy of a high/epic fantasy romance, I didn’t have to think twice. Magic and princes and sexy times? Yes, please. And The Winter King delivered. Two opposing kingdoms where the royal lines inherit their own specialized kind of magic. A war ended by a marriage between the two. A prince of winter and a princess of summer both with feisty temperaments, powerful magic and (of course) an undeniable attraction to each other. And just to spice things up, an old evil god trying to come back into the world and trigger an icy apocalypse. The fantasy part of the plot line was interesting and I liked the author’s take on magic. The family dynamics in the royal lines were well done. The romance part of the plot line was also fun – and I liked that it veered from just plain sexy times to an actual love story. You know I’m a sucker for a good love story. And while nothing in this book was completely genre-busting or surprising, it was still a good read that kept me hooked. I enjoyed it very much, and would recommend if you’re looking for a mix of fantasy and romance. Expected publication is in July.

I give it 4/5 stars.
