Product Description

Product Description

In a few short months, Emi's mortal life will end when she becomes the human host of an immortal goddess. Carefully hidden from those who would destroy her, she has prepared her mind, body, and soul to unite with the goddess--and not once has she doubted her chosen fate.

Shiro is a spirit of the earth and an enemy of the goddess Emi will soon host. Mystery shrouds his every move and his ruby eyes shine with cunning she can't match and dares not trust. But she saved his life, and until his debt is paid, he is hers to command--whether she wants him or not.

On the day they meet, everything Emi believes comes undone, swept away like snow upon the winter wind. For the first time, she wants to change her fate--but how can she erase a destiny already wrought in stone? Against the power of the gods, Shiro is her only hope ... and hope is all she has left.

RED WINTER includes 10 full-page illustrations by artist Brittany Jackson.

Ms Marie has done it again with another outstanding series that had me hooked and begging for more. I loved everything about this book – the pacing, the characters, the world building, and the plot.

Emi has been preparing since she was eight to become the human host of a goddess. She is focused, disciplined and honoured to be chosen. Until she learns the truth behind the lies and questions everything that she has been taught to believe.

Emi has led a very sheltered life and longs to experience all the things that she has not had the opportunity to. I loved her development from being trusting, obedient and naive to questioning, adventurous and rebellious. She has to determine where others’ loyalties lay, and whether she can or even wants to change her chosen fate.

Emi is a strong, brave, determined character who I instantly felt a connection to. I loved Shiro and Katsuo, who seem to be the only ones concerned about Emi as a person. Shiro is a kitsune, and nothing like she expected her enemy to be. He is confident and worldly wise, yet secretive and unpredictable. Katsuo is Emi’s protector. He knows her so well, and is supportive and caring, even though she gets him in trouble when her requests conflict with his duties.

I was left feeling exhausted after such an emotional rollercoaster ride. To be honest, I still have a book hangover. If you love beautifully crafted fantasy with plenty of action, suspense, plot twists and a touch of romance, than this is the book for you!

I can’t wait to see where Ms Marie takes this story and what happens next!

And what a beautiful cover and gorgeous illustrations!

5 Stars!!!

Red Winter, was to put it bluntly, an absolute delight. The thought, vividness and expanse of the world, the intriguing and complicated characters combined with an interesting plot, which had a lot of great action scenes. Let me break it down...

The characters were all complex, emotional and really fascinating to read. Emi, our heroine, is a stunning character. Her desire to fulfil her duty warring with her melancholy and deep distress as missing out on her life as secrets are revealed was truly difficult to read at times. I completely understood her emotional turmoil and her inner monologues were thoughtful windows into her struggles to come to terms with what she had always been told and the freedom she truly wanted to grasp. Throughout all this, she demonstrates bravery, curiosity, open-mindedness and yes, a lot of angst, haha. Shiro was a fantastic character to play opposite Emi (plus, I always have a soft heart for a kitsune, ever since reading Kamisama Kiss). He was witty, dangerous and brooding, and the seed of romance blossoming between them is something I really want to see develop in the next two books. All of the other characters where great, but this story hinges on the strength of Emi and Shiro, and it does so beautifully.

Not going to deny it, the start of this book is slow. It takes a good 100+ pages until the kitsune even arrives on the scene (and we all know he is coming, because of the synopsis), so I found myself impatiently flipping through the pages just to get to that meeting. That being said, once Shiro does arrive, stuff gets crazy fairly quickly. From then on, mysteries, secrets, drama and lots of fight scenes unfold in rapid fire succession.
