In a cold, empty castle, a young queen is dying.
Weak. Fragile. Disgraced.
But Queen Whitestone is not alone in her final days.
She has her beloved sister.
Until a wicked king rides onto her land.
Arrogant. Insufferable. Demanding.
King Bloodsun has come with an offer…peace in trade for a bride.
He wants the princess.
The fiery king won’t take no for an answer.
He vows to keep the cold queen captive until she gives in to his demands.
A queen bows for no one, though.
Not even when she’s frail and fading away.
She’ll tap into her strength, protecting the only family she has left.
The king is about to learn why they call her the cruel one…
About K. Webster

Cold Queen by K Webster was I wonderful revelation. With characters like Elzira and Yanna, you’ll definitely know that this is an adult spinoff of Frozen. I loved the great world-building of this book; especially how they have taken homage to Frozen but created a whole new thing altogether.
As the second book of the Sinister collection, this definitely did not disappoint. It has all the makings of a great medieval fantasy novel with its court intrigues, ice and fire powers, and zombie-like creatures called the damned.
Elzira and Ryke are one great couple. I usually don’t take much liking to a retelling but this is one great exception. It doesn’t alienate readers who loved the movie, but it can still stand alone on its own. And that’s what makes K Webster’s writing excellent in this novel. There was a perfect balance of steamy romance and fantasy.
I’ve read the first two books of the Sinister Collection and now I can’t wait to read the rest!
