Publisher's Summary

An epic new fantasy romance from New York Times and USA Today best-selling author C. L. Wilson.
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 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 - and her first taste of overwhelming passion.
As fierce, indomitable Wynter weathers even Khamsin's wildest storms, surprising her with a tenderness she never expected, Kham wants more than Wynter's passion - she yearns for his love. 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.

A DELICIOUS FANTASTICAL FAIRYTALE FOR ADULTS

I loved C L Wilson's Tairen Soul series so I knew that she had a gift when it comes to creating magical worlds, fantastical complex plots and romantic stories and she didn't let me down with this, her new Mystral series of standalone books which are about the lands of the Weathermages.

This is about two of those magical lands... Summerlea and Wintercraig and the treachery that resulted in murder, revenge, hatred, betrayal and destruction and 3 years of War that was forced upon them. And because of all that there is a powerful treaty brutally imposed upon a strong, feisty and fierce Heroine (Princess Khamsin) and a demanding, cold, bitter, and tortured Hero (King Wynter). However, neither one expected the attraction, the lust, the powerful passion, the soul connection and the strong deep love that eventually emerged. But there's so so much more to this plot too and I won't spoil this enchanting and enjoyable story for you.

An action-packed exciting story full of suspense, mystery, interesting secondary characters, challenges, battles, betrayal, fantastical creatures, imaginative world-building imagery, a passionate sizzling chemistry, sex and a slow to ignite love story.

Worth the credit? If you're a fan of fantasy love stories that will capture your imagination and carry you off to mythical magical lands then this is a must for you (as it was for me) and YES, when you're in the mood for a FAIRYTALE, it doesn't come better than this very creditworthy listen.

Magnificent Story; annoying narration

What did you love best about The Winter King?

It was a refreshing story and continued that way from cover to cover.


What did you like best about this story?

The plot was good, if a bit predictable. I enjoyed the character development and, as always, a strong female in the story line.


What didn’t you like about Heather Wilds’s performance?

I've purchased books with her narration before and her inflection is distracting and monotonous.
