Synopsis

In a cold, empty castle, a young queen is dying.

Weak. Fragile. Disgraced.

But Queen Whitestone is not alone in her final days.

She has her beloved sister.

Until a wicked king rides onto her land.

Arrogant. Insufferable. Demanding.

King Bloodsun has come with an offer…peace in trade for a bride.

He wants the princess.

The fiery king won’t take no for an answer.

He vows to keep the cold queen captive until she gives in to his demands.

A queen bows for no one, though.

Not even when she’s frail and fading away.

She’ll tap into her strength, protecting the only family she has left.

The king is about to learn why they call her the cruel one…

My thoughts 💭

I enjoyed Cold Queen! Elzira’s father told her to trust no one and I didn’t realize how solid that advice to her was until the end. I was expecting it to be one person betraying her but it wasn’t only one! Ryke comes to the cold queen trying to make an alliance to get access to lands and he gets far more than he bargained for. He uncovers that she’s been slowly being poisoned and helps her heal and gets himself a cold queen for his efforts. Their chemistry was amazing and I definitely recommend this well written book!
