It’s been three months since the Winterians were freed and Spring’s king, Angra, disappeared—thanks largely to the help of Cordell.

Meira just wants her people to be safe. When Cordellan debt forces the Winterians to dig their mines for payment, they unearth something powerful and possibly dangerous: Primoria’s lost chasm of magic. Theron sees this find as an opportunity—with this much magic, the world can finally stand against threats like Angra. But Meira fears the danger the chasm poses—the last time the world had access to so much magic, it spawned the Decay. So when the king of Cordell orders the two on a mission across the kingdoms of Primoria to discover the chasm’s secrets, Meira plans to use the trip to garner support to keep the chasm shut and Winter safe—even if it means clashing with Theron. But can she do so without endangering the people she loves?

Mather just wants to be free. The horrors inflicted on the Winterians hang fresh and raw in Januari—leaving Winter vulnerable to Cordell’s growing oppression. When Meira leaves to search for allies, he decides to take Winter’s security into his own hands. Can he rebuild his broken kingdom and protect them from new threats?

As the web of power and deception weaves tighter, Theron fights for magic, Mather fights for freedom—and Meira starts to wonder if she should be fighting not just for Winter, but for the world.

I read Snow Like Ashes last month, and oh my goodness, I need Ice Like Fire RIGHT NOW! I loved it, and I need to know what happens next. And just look at the cover: how gorgeous! I love having matching covers when I start reading a series, so here’s hoping the beautiful matching covers continue!

If you’ve read Snow Like Ashes, well, I’ve got a little problem: I can’t decide who to ship! When I started the book, I was all Mather-Mather-Mather-no-changing-my-mind-EVER. Then Theron appeared and things got a bit complicated… And now I have no idea who I should root for! Humm, maybe I should ship Mather and Theron??

Have you read Snow Like Ashes? Have you picked a ship yet? What do you think about matching covers in a series? Nothing angers me more than cover changes, particularly mid-series! How do you feel about them? And what new releases are you waiting on this week?

Thanks for stopping by, and happy reading!

* Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. *


  1. I haven't read this series but I love the covers so I really need to give them a shot. Fantasy is hard for me (I'm more of a sci-fi girl) but I like some series a lot :)
    My WoW:

  2. I have to say that the series is sounding pretty interesting and suspense now. I might have to put it on my tbr

  3. Ahhh I still have to read the first book! There has been so much hype on this seris and I absolutely have to see what it's all about!

  6. Sounds really good! i haven't read any books by this author yet.


    No seriously I'm not a big fan of Mather at the moment hahah. AND I AM EXCITED FOR THIS BOOK IN GENERAL :D

  8. Confession time: I've been meaning to read Snow Like Ashes for literally months but I just haven't gotten around to it! But hopefully that will change in a week or two because it was the first thing I packed for my summer vacation :) Thanks for stopping by earlier!
