#BookReview for Through the White Wood by Jessica Leake

Synopsis: Katya’s power to freeze anything she touches has made her an outcast in her isolated village. And when she loses control of her ability, accidentally killing several villagers, she is banished to the palace of the terrifying Prince Sasha in Kiev. 

At the castle, though, she is surprised to find that Sasha is just like her—with his own strange talent, the ability to summon fire. Instead of punishment, Sasha offers Katya friendship, and the chance to embrace her power rather than fear it.

But outside the walls of Kiev, Sasha’s enemies have organized their own army of people who can control the very earth. Bent on taking over the entire world, they won’t stop until they’ve destroyed everything.

Katya and Sasha are desperate to stop the encroaching army, and together their powers are a fearsome weapon. But as their enemies draw nearer, leaving destruction in their wake, will fire and frost be enough to save the world? Or will they lose everything they hold dear?
 This title will be released on April 9, 2019.

Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟
My Review: This companion novel to Beyond A Darkened Shore was a little better than the first one.  I thought the first one was way to speedy with all the bad guys. But this one you could tell how much the author learned from the other book and this one flows a lot better.  I loved the characters and the story and can not wait to see what else we get from this world.  

Note: If you really enjoyed the first one you may think this one was a little slow vs. what book one had. 

Praise for BEYOND A DARKENED SHORE: “Epic historical fantasy filled with deadly creatures, simmering romance, and nonstop action.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Fire and ice meet Russian folklore and magic in Through the White Wood, a fantasy that captivated me from mysterious beginning to enthralling end.”   (Evelyn Skye, New York Times bestselling author of The Crown’s Game series and Circle of Shadows)

“Confident and plot-focused…a fantasy rendered in pretty winter colors.” (Kirkus Reviews)
