I've read and loved a couple of K. Websters contemporary novels this year, and while I couldn't make as strong a connection with the characters in this (very adult) fairy tale, it was a fast-paced and entertaining read. Recommended.
One day the Bloodsun King, Ryke arrives wanting to use Elzira’s kingdom as a base before he moves on to conquer more lands and also to take a wife who initially is Yanna but then changes rapidly to Elzira when he sees who she is and what she can do. The chemistry between both Elzira and Ryke is smoking hot with a little bit of dominance from Ryke thrown in for good measure as well as the snarkiness that both characters throw at each other. They both definitely content for who is going to be on top….it pretty much is always going to be Ryke!
This story has a lot of layers, firstly you have the fairy story layer, then the additional stories of a variety of characters, then the layer of Elzira and what is happening to her. It is a very intriguing if sinister take on a classic fairy story and it’s not for the faint hearted. The description of the palace and kingdom is wonderful and at times you feel like you are a fly on the wall watching how these characters interact with each other as well as seeing, feeling and smelling the ice and snow that surrounds not only the kingdom but Elzira herself.
The book is surprisingly fast paced, with twists and turns throughout the whole story. If you like your fairy tales dark, twisted and steamy then this one is totally for you!
ARC received for a fair and honest review.
Without giving too much away, Elzira becomes the person she was always destined to be. I got sucked into this story and loved Ryke. The interactions between him and Elzira were brilliant. The snarky and witty banter between both characters was so much fun to read. Ryke is a strong alpha male who takes charge and his kingliness will not let anyone get in his way once he makes up his mind. Elzira is also someone who will not let anyone walk all over her. Her strength and resilience was excellent. I loved the story! It was engaging, exciting and exhilarating.

Female main character a wimp in her acceptance of said inappropriate behaviour (I know, I know, there are extenuating circumstances, but even so...) and given that she and her "army" are painted as super powerful, all conquering, they're all a bit of a walkover - angry glares do not win you battles. The power differential between them before the mystery of her malaise is explained was too extreme to be comfortable. Not for me I'm afraid.
Elzira a frail, ice queen vows to protect her sister and her lands from Ryke the king of Souta. It is a battle of wills, passion and sheer stubbornness.
I loved getting lost in this world and I'm looking forward to reading more from the Sinister Fairytale Collection and K Webster.
