Winter Queen by Amber Argyle

Blurb~~Becoming a winter queen will make Ilyenna as cold and cruel and deadly as winter itself, but it might be the only way to save her people from a war they have no hope of winning.~

Mortally wounded during a raid, seventeen-year-old Ilyenna is healed by winter fairies who present her with a seductive offer: become one of them and share their power over winter. But that power comes with a price. If she accepts, she will become a force of nature, lose her humanity, and abandon her family.

Unwilling to pay such a high price, Ilyenna is enslaved by one of the invaders, Darrien. While in captivity, she learns the attack wasn’t just a simple raid but part of a larger plot to overthrow her entire nation.

With the enemy stealing over the mountains and Darrien coming to take her to his bed, Ilyenna must decide whether to resurrect the power the fairies left behind. Doing so will allow her to defeat Darrien and the other invaders, but if she embraces winter, she will lose herself to that destroying power—forever

Tifferz Take~
Amber Argyle has crafted a story that is captivating and thrilling. I had to keep reading to find out what would happen next. This is quite the page turner. I was shocked at some of the things Ilyenna and other clans people endure while in the Tyrans land. This story is not for the faint at heart it has grit and is pretty violent, bloody and filled with abuse. Darrin had me fearful for many lives. Rone was amazing and put Ilyenna's needs above his and helped her. The love they share is unbreakable and beautiful. But remember love hurts, and choices are made. I fell in love with the fairies. I have to say the ending was my favorite part of the story. It was magical. I also found the flower from the summer queen unique. The supporting cast were great and I hope that we will see more of them in the future. I hope Ms.Argyle will be creating more stories from this enchanting world. I feel we need to find out how things go for Ilyenna's brother Bratton. You really can't go wrong with a story by Amber Argyle!

Just FYI~ This does not contain any sex.(It is all with the lights out) or swearing. It does have attempted rape, abuse, violence and war. I think it was bloody.
