Review by: Tina


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, known as "Seasons" 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. 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.


Wow wow wow..this book is such a gem. I'm not sure what I was expecting when I picked it up. I was looking for an epic fantasy story with an epic romance. I wasn't prepared for how engrossing this little gem turned out to be.


Neglected and unloved by her father, Khamsin grew up isolated and hidden from the world. Her father viewed her as an abomination. She is one of the most powerful Weathermage of her royal family line, the temperous Storm.

Fantastic world building. Contains elements of heroism and monstrous foes from frost giants to battling the Ice King. The action doesn't stop here. The girl then turns into the hero she grew up reading and fantasizing from her childhood.

This book completely took me by surprise. It was so enthralling and it exuded Tamora Pierce feel; whoa call me impressed.

Definite recommend.
