*I received an ARC from the author. This does not affect my review. This review is voluntary.*

I loved this one! When I was asked if I'd like to read it, I didn't know anything about this book or the author, but it sounded like the kind of story I'm drawn to..I had no idea it would be one of my favorite reads so far! I loved reading this, yes it's got romance and courtly intrigue, but the twists kept coming and I loved all the surprises that the characters were faced with! It's a lot like the YA books I normally read, and yet is something all it's own. A must read! ( )

I was given an arc via NetGalley, all opinions are my own.

I found this book very enjoyable. I feel like it would be pretty easy to go at this book for not being the most developed with the most amazing prose, but I honestly enjoyed reading it. It had a fast, action-packed plot and is a great introduction to anyone looking to get into political fantasy. It has love pentagons (or political arrangement pentagons lol), passion, murder and more, all wrapped in a short, less than 300 page, package. It's easy and fun to read. This book would also make a great guilty pleasure or just an easy read to get you out of a reading slump.

I say this is a good introductory book because first off, it is short and a fast read. It's like this because it doesn't go into crazy amounts of depth into political deception and plays. There's a surface level simplicity to it which makes this such an easy book to read. It covers a lot of political schemes in a short amount of time. It doesn't feel that underdeveloped either, which is nice, because the story takes place in a pretty short time frame and there is a lot going on. Also, there's a not a huge magi system or belief system to get accustomed too.

A few things did seem odd, like how unaware other kingdoms were of what was going on and how easily some kingdoms were mobilizing their armies. I did, at time, find myself craving a map and a deep look into the military and political mindset of the various kings, queen, princes, servants, and princess who were playing a role in the story. I wanted to know the marching conditions and how in was enabled/troubled by the land and how the kings worked out alliances and etc, but then I was quickly shocked by the next plot twist and made to keep reading more. This book kept me on my toes and I liked that.

I don't have much to say on the romance for once. Lots of it was political arrangement, which meant that politics were a bit more at play than emotion in the beginning, but it eventually became an emotional play. There was more of a point-to-point development, some of which could have used more expanding and development, but nothing seemed random or out of the blue.

It also has a great ending. I actually really liked it. I can't wait for the next book. It'll be on my radar for sure. ( )

I received a copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own.


Princess Charlotte of Besimum is unhappily betrothed to Princes Young of Vires, neither of them particularly feel any joy about this marriage alliance, but with little choice in the matter. Charlotte especially, as she tries in the beginning to stop the wedding and make Young or her father break off the marriage. Their engagement begins with a rocky start as Charlotte attempts to murder Young on his arrival. When their castle is attacked by Drethen forces, the wedding is cancelled, and they are forced to escape.

With her kingdom attacked and it’s future now uncertain, Charlotte’s mother renegotiates her hand in marriage to another. In hopes to protect their kingdom with the alliance of a country much closer than Vires. Charlotte must decided how she will save her kingdom. By turning to the prince she betrayed or by marrying another that only wants the throne for himself.

Overall I really enjoyed this book. Princess Charlotte’s earlier chapters did make me dislike her character to begin with but I think that she had some of the best character development in the story. She began as a spoiled princess that grew to become a strong female lead. Alongside Prince Young, they both became more mature and ready to rule. Each faced challenges throughout the story, sometimes together, with the help of others, or completely alone.

This is a romance set in a war. Meaning that it is not always a happy story; people fight, die, are injured and suffer. Their is politics mixed up with romance. Both good and bad people die, there is no glorious climatic final battle that leaves the good guys standing tall, alive and with a happy ever after, and the bad guys are beaten, broken and (sometimes) dead. Not everyone survives, some of them I had really wanted to live and some that I was happy to see gone.

I may not be 100% happy with some of the events in this book, and I am still brewing over one death in particular which if you have or do read the book you might also not be over yet, but I can understand why many of them had to happen. Due to the unpredictable nature of war it only makes sense that a story about war would have unpredictable and sudden events.

I would recommend this book if you want to read a book with romance set in a war, that is a multi-cultural light fantasy YA novel. ( )

‘Attempted murder, that’s how sixteen-year-old Princess Charlotte's engagement starts. It seems like the only thing she has in common with Prince Young of Vires is their mutual discontent.

When her kingdom’s attacked, Charlotte’s parents renegotiate her hand in marriage to a handsome stranger with a sinister plan. With the people Charlotte loves dying around her, and her kingdom’s future at stake, the only person she can turn to is the prince she betrayed. But, should she save her kingdom or her heart? One must fall.’

Chenelle's Kingdom Cold was a poignantly sad tale of love, loss, and the re-imagined beginnings to one of myth and legend's most mysterious women. Now, I could give you the name, but that would be telling, wouldn't it? It was a pleasant and quite unexpected surprise to me, so I'm not gonna spoil it for others! Let's just say, the deepest origins arose from Welsh myth.

Charlotte starts out as a spoiled little princess, upset over an arranged marriage, as if it wouldn't have been discussed with her many times. Sad as it might have been for notions of romantic love, royal marriages tended to be matters of binding and alliance between countries. I did get the feeling that her mother never discussed the practicalities of marriage, nor even attempted to prepare Charlotte for her wedding night, and what she could expect. That right there seemed half Charlotte's issue with getting married.

There were times when timing vs distance feel very accelerated. Like how close were the castles to the borders of Drethen and Algony? The distances and even politics made a little more sense once the twist at the end was revealed. The marriage itself seemed a little rushed too. Prince Young arrived one night, and the marriage was supposed to be the very next day. I gather part of the expediency had to do with the Besmium/ Drethen war, and needing allies, but Young arrived without a full entourage, or even his immediate family, save for his brother Minseo. No substantial number of support troops were dispatched with the brothers. There were some, but not the amount I'd expect.

I liked how Charlotte evolved. She really was a spoiled brat at the beginning. By the end, she had matured into the strong woman she needed to be for her family. Young seems more mature for his age. I felt for the poor guy! He was so kind and considerate, too, especially on their wedding night. Most of the time he was more mature than his older brother, Minseo, as well. Most being the key word there. Young had a few lapses. One big one was thinking Charlotte was cheating on him.

It's clear the author has talent, and I look forward to reading future books. I'd love to see a continuation of this story, to find out where the author would take it!

***Many thanks to the author for providing an eARC in exchange for a fair and honest review. ( )

Kingdom Cold is an addictive read. The story pulled me in deeper every chapter I read. The characters are well written. I had a love/hate relationship with more than one. I knew Kingdom Cold was multicultural with characters of different ethnic backgrounds. However, this aspect flows throughout the story so that it isn’t seen as an issue. I love this! It’s how the world SHOULD be! The plot twists, turns, and the unexpected ending left me hoping there will soon be a follow-up book.
Kingdom Cold has all the aspects of a classic fairytale....with a few unexpected developments. Even though the book is listed as Young Adult Fantasy & Romance, I believe readers of every age will enjoy this story. ( )
