Where I Got It: My shelf (Given to me by the author/publisher for my honest and unbiased opinion) 

An epic fantasy of forbidden romance that chronicles the coming of age of a princess who is possessed by the Snow Queen and fated to rule her kingdom with a strong hand and icy heart.

As a child, Princess Freyja looked into the Snow Queen’s cursed mirror - and was changed.

Now an aloof and difficult young woman with a wit as sharp as her tongue, the future monarch is in need of a tutor. And Ambrose, a failed poet, is in need of a teaching position. He just never suspected how dangerous the extracurricular activities would be!

Soon, Ambrose finds himself on a grand adventure fighting to save the vexing but alluring princess from the court occult conspiracies that have targeted her. He is opposed not only by sorcerers and the evil Snow Queen, but also the icy royal damsel who holds his heart.

Will Ambrose’s love cause Freyja to thaw…or will she put him in the deep freeze instead?

Sensuous, suspenseful, supernatural and filled with witty banter, this romantic fantasy will both turn up the heat and leave you thoroughly frost smitten!

The cover drew me in and then the summary had me wanting to check this out. 

This an epic fantasy of forbidden romance and a coming of age of a princess who is possessed by the Snow Queen. Ambrose finds himself teaching and helping the princess in more ways than way. 

The format of the book was very interesting and fun. I loved how the author really made this world. It was easy to follow along because it was outlined so well. 

It was a little hard to get into at first. There was a lot of character-building and world-building. WHICH I liked, but it did take a little while for me to get into the story. After a certain scene, I was intrigued and rushed to finish this. I had to know what was going to happen! It is a BIG book, but it worked because there was a lot of story, and building that length was for sure needed. 

I liked Ambrose a lot. Very sweet. The princess bugged me sometimes and I wanted to shake her, but I liked her overall, especially at the end. I loved their banter!

Overall, this was a good one. Long and had a lot of content, but I was hooked after a scene and had to finish this as quickly as possible. I adored Ambrose and the princess needed a good shaking here and there, but I liked her too. I highly recommend it for those that love the blend of genres and a good intricate read. I'll give this 4 stars.
