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.

The king is about to learn why they call her the cruel one…
Cold Queen by K. Webster
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a fantasy romance novel and a very enjoyable one at that. The first thing that struck me here was Elziras resemblance to the Snow Queen with her cold icy castle and outward appearance. But this is no over-romanticized fairytale it had a much edgier and darker overtone whilst at the same time was still a really sweet love story despite the bloodshed involved. So Elzira is the reigning queen of the Norta Icelands, Queen Whitestone after the untimely death of her father, she is also the punisher of the damned. So Ryka the Truthseeker and King Bloodsun of the Souta Volcanos is the exact opposite of the Icequeen. Hot where she is cold, Fire where she is Ice he wants her cooperation to proceed through her lands to what lies beyond and is prepared to do whatever is needed to accomplish his goals. I really enjoyed this story the unapologetic viciousness was refreshing and though this wasn’t a complicated story it was very absorbing. A quick read that really captured my imagination. I would really adore it if the author continued with this series and would certainly like to read more set in this world. If you like fantasy romance then this hits the spot massively. A thumbs up from my camp.
I voluntary reviewed a copy of Cold Queen.
