OMG! I'm so in love with this book! I love Wynter who is the King of Wintercraig. I love that he is an ice king with some abilities. I love that his wilderness companions are wolves. He's everything! Two of my favorite things: WINTER & WOLVES So this twat of a prince from Summerlea comes over to visit Wyn and he ends up stealing some important things, well one was not so important, and kills his brother, so this sets off a 3 year war. Wyn does some things to make himself stronger and full of [...]
Reviewed by: Rabid ReadsC.L. Wilson writes Fantasy Romance like nobody’s business.I discovered Wilson’s Tairen Soul series a little over a year ago through a ’ recommendation, and I read all five books in five days.All five books. In five days.And they weren’t filler books either. They were all 400(ish) page FANTASY books.When I finished my reading binge, I was glad to see that another book was in the works—The Winter King (this book), and I’ve had it on my watchlist since January of [...]
I tried to think of a way to review this book I tried and failed. How do you review something that left your heart thumping, your brow sweating, and your soul singing ? There are no words worthy of this feeling. I loved this book, I loved the world, the characters and even the villains. I hated the villains one completely, true unwavering hate for a certain father figure. It was so nice to have a completely evil force to focus on without those wavering good deeds mixed in. Do not judge this book [...]
The past few weeks have been really tough for me because my mental health has been playing up again. I haven't been able to enjoy reading the way I used to and that honestly just breaks my heart. I still try to read because I don't want my issues to stop me from doing something I love so much. It's also why I like to come on because the environment here makes me feel better. And even though I find it difficult to read myself, I like knowing that other people are reading and enjoying books. I de [...]
Romantasy!!! It is my favorite genre loved my reread with my friends at Buddies Books and BaublesOriginal Review Aug 2014Finally!!! A great Adult High Fantasy with both a wonderful romance and fantastic plot/world this is two of my favorite genre’s combined. The Story - Wynter the king of Wintercraig was betrayed by his fiancé and the Falcon the Prince of Summerlea. Wynter in his sadness took in a powerful magic that could destroy him and plunged both countries into war. Now three years later [...]
*** 4 ***A buddy read with my friends at BB&B! Because we love Fairy tales!!! This is exactly what it looks like - a fairy tale for adults, which we also call Romantasy! In short - a fantastic tale of the battle between good and evil set on the background of romance, promising Happily Ever After and on the way getting steamy with the main characters getting busy "“What had come over her? He'd touched her, and it was like electric flame -- like the lightning she could summon -- shooting spa [...]
Oh my God yes! I must read this book, I want more CL Wilson! But I wish she'd make another Tairen Soul book! One with Gaelen and Bel and Kiel and Kieran!!
⋰⋱⋰⋱⋰⋱*Great Fantasy Book*⋰⋱⋰⋱⋰⋱ Re-read: 21.01.2018For those of you that haven't read this great fantasy book, definitely should do it. It's a great story of love, honor, friendship, legends and war. About finding a place you belong, your home and becoming who you are meant to be. I seriously recommend this book. The Winter King centers around King of Wintercraig, Wynter ‘Wyn’ Crystalin Boreal Atrialan (how old? Late twenties? Early thirties?) and Princess of Summerl [...]
5 Fairytale Stars I love you more than the sunrise. More than laughter. More than song  I love you more than any man in the history of Mystral ever loved Love, warlords, magic, strange lands, lies, loyalties, family, heartbreak. C L Wilson weaves a fantastic tale that has your soul sighing and you eyes teary. I absolutely adore her books and I can't wait for more!
Re-read 28/12/20155 starsDo not let the 80s, slightly Fabionesque, cover of this book fool you! We tend to categorise now based on the cover, if it's urban fantasy it's usually a badass woman with some sort of weapon, if it's shifters you have an animal mixed in with the people and so on.For me this is the kind of book you can't class based on cover. You think you're getting a historical romance with a shot of magic featuring a silly heroine and a wishy-washy knight in shiny armor. Well, you don [...]
5 absolute brilliant starsAn AMAZING historical, paranormal romance with SO MUCH action, drama and feels. This book was just what i needed to get out of my book slump. It made my gut twist, it made me smile and most of all, it made me FEEL! The chemistry between the main characters was just out of this world and i especially loved how they eventually start trusting each other despite being enemies and having lingering doubts. The heroine had balls of steel and an unmatched wit, my favourite kind [...]
Holy shit. Quite possibly the best book I've ever read.To be honest, I probably never would have chosen this book had I stumbled upon it on my own. The cover just doesn't look or feel like the kind of book I'd enjoy. (It looks like some sort of cheesy, soap opera historical romance?) But I decided to pick it up because someone recommended this book to fans of A Promise of Fire and I ADORED that book so I bought this one without question.I think I loved this even more.The Winter King was everythi [...]

Disappointing. That's the best word I can come up with to describe my feelings towards this book. I expected something epic and fantastical, in the same vein as the Tairen Soul series. What I got was not that.The plot is great - that's the saving grace here. The characters are shit. I hated the heroine. I hated the hero. I hated all the various villains. I even hated the secondary characters that only had a few lines. They were all shitty people that do shitty things and it was just shit. SHIT, [...]
5 FANTASTIC FAIRYTALE STARS!!! By far one of the best books I've ever read!!! It had everything!!! EVERYTHING!!! This book would be a phenomena of epic proportions if it weren't for the cheesy cover. I'm sure of it!!! Dare I say this book is better than Game of Thrones??! C.L. Wilson is genius!!!! I want the TV series, the movie, play, something. Lol. I can't wait for the next book in this series.
When Storm meets Ice.Sometimes a book comes into your life and you get completely sucked in. C.L. Wilson has captured my attention with a book that will stay with me for days. Her characters came alive. I was living in Summerlea and watching Khamsin sneak around the servants and guards. I was watching Wynter turn frostier and frostier with every use of his power. I wanted to hold lightning in my hands. I survived heartbreak, suffering and misery. I lived for my chance at love, friendship and loy [...]
This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.This was good! I have heard great things about this book since its release date. I am really not sure why I waited so long to pick it up. I am glad that I listened to all of the recommendations and finally read this wonderful story. I was swept away into this world and fell in love with the characters. It was the kind of book that I didn't want to put down. I really enjoyed reading this story.Wynter, the King of Wintercraig, has just [...]
Wynter, the king of Wintercraig, devoted his time and energy to building up his kingdom, and trying to work with their southern neighbors: Summerlea. But then the prince of Summerlea stole his bride and killed his brother, and for three years he has battled with his enemies and now he has won and will take a bride of one of the precious daughters of the summer king. What he doesn't know is that there is a fourth daughter, one who can save him from the ice heart that is slowly consuming him. Kham [...]
This hero freaking growls men away from the heroine. I was sold!!
4.5 StarsThis book is a clear example of why you should never judge the book by its cover; hate the cover, adore the story. I admit looking at this book and wanting to give it a pass, I’m glad I didn’t. This is one story that I will reread again and again, a great example why we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover; the words, the plot and the characters were something I’m glad that I got to read and experience, nothing but pure joy.The book was long, yet not once did I feel it was overdr [...]
I read this author's Tairen Soul series up through the third book. While I enjoyed the first two books of the series, my enthusiasm waned during the third book. I never completed the series because I found the pacing to be somewhat glacial and the villain to be rather uninspired.Still I liked the writer's voice and was glad to see that she had written a new book completely separate from that other series.The plot of the book is very familiar. Two kingdoms, Summerlea and Wintercraig, are at war a [...]

4.5 Summerlass StarsAnd this author does it againe writes another book that I carry with me while cooking, cleaning, working just about anything.Even though I found Wyn to be annoying at times with his doubtful thoughts and paranoia, this story won me over.Storm is a perfect heroine and I have to reiterate that Ms. Lewis' female characters are TO DIE FOR.I don't think she could write a better lead than her femalesrfect in every way.This story will take you on a journey of the beautiful lands of [...]
"Your father thought he scored a victory over me when he tricked me into marrying you instead of one of your sisters, but he unwittingly gave me the one daughter I wanted most.”When a book made you cry ugly tears in the prologue, you know it's gonna be epic.And it was!I seriously adored this book. Everything about it was worth my time.This is an adult fantasy romance and, I'm not gonna lie, it's particularly heavy on romance so if you're not a big fan of that, stay away from this one. The magi [...]
I didn't like this book because:·Khamsin and Wynter,·the main characters never really talked, so they could get to know each other, to find something else to fall in love with besides amazing skill in the bedroom, ·corny conversations in the end,·cheesy plot,·Khamsin's purpose as a baby-making machine,·Wynter's distrust of Khamsin even after she saved his ass time and time again,·insta-lust, ·insta-love, ·it's about 300 pages too long, ·even though it's easy to read, the story is drawn [...]

I really enjoyed C. L. Wilson’s Fading lands/ Tairen Soul Series books so it was no brainer that when I saw this, I immediately wanted to read it. It’s a decision I certainly do not regret.This is the story of Khamsin Coruscate, Princess of Summerlea and Wynter Atrialan, the King of Wintercraig.Khamsin is the youngest daughter of King Verdan of Summerlea, forced to hide not only her status as a princess but unwanted from her father, she is left alone to her devices. She loved her brother ver [...]

Wilson truly delivers once again!! More than 600 pages of golden treasure kept me reading and reading, and reading until in the early morning! This novel is a real pageturner and double worth every penny!Weathermages, a magical world of ever-changing seasons, the promise of war, a complex in-depth story [...]
Oh, C.L. Wilson how I shouldn't have doubted you. I should have picked you up long ago and put this amazing book in my heart. Even if your book covers are seriously the worst. The worst.I don't really know how to review this book except to say just give this quick read a chance. All in all, very enjoyable and not at all what I expected! In fact, I would almost, almost say this is hardly a romance book. Perhaps it's the fact that I'm reading way too many YA books lately, but I thoroughly enjoyed [...]
Absolutely amazing! When I finished this book, I looked around and was completely surprised that I actually wasn't in this world. C.L. Wilson does an amazing job of surrounding you with this unique world and making it real. Can not wait for the next book! Highly recommend this one!!
