Winter King by J.S. Dark
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was an intriguing and imaginative read. The winter court needs a sacrifice to save it from a spreading curse that is infecting his land. A selfless and pure human. One human life weighed against and the entire court of the Fae and for the winter king there is no contest. Amber a down on her luck and now jobless young girl is that human. Kidnapped and taken to the winter court Amber suddenly finds herself a part of a whole new world one she never dreamed existed. Cadewyn is the winter king of Wyth and from the very first moment, he feels himself drawn to his new houseguest. He’s aware he has to sacrifice her for the greater good but wishes it was otherwise. His feelings naturally deepen the more time he spends around Amber and naturally he feels such guilt especially as he is also withholding the full truth from her to gain her cooperation. Cade fights his feelings his need to protect her conflicting with his ultimate goal. I wasn’t much a fan of his blowing hot and cold even though I was aware of the whys I just felt so sorry for Poor Amber. She was such a sweet girl who just wanted someone or something to call home. and the constant push and pull was not fair. This in itself wasn’t an incredibly angsty read and if you like the romantic fated mate type of stories this one would definitely be a fit for you. It also could have done with some fleshing out as I wasn’t always feeling the emotion between Cade and Amber and some of the scenes and secondary characters were a tad choppy. Quite a quick read, I managed to read it in one sitting and it’s dual POV which I do prefer. This really was an easy and enjoyable read with a lot more positives overall than negatives. Giving this one a thumbs up from my camp. I would be interested in seeing what comes next from this author.

I voluntary reviewed a copy of Winter King (The Wyth Courts, #1).
