Fairy Queens Books 1-4(2016)
(A book in the Fairy Queens series)
An omnibus of novels by Amber Argyle
"A captivating series!" ~Jennifer A. Nielsen, NYT bestselling author, The False Prince
The Fairy Queens Series is a fairytale retelling of The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen. The first two books (Of Ice and Snow and Winter Queen) tell how the Snow Queen came into power. Books three and four (Of Fire and Ash and Summer Queen) tell how her rival, the Summer Queen, came to be. The last three books (Of Sand and Storm, Daughter of Winter, & Winter's Heir) tell the story of Kai and Gerda, and how they saved not only each other but also the queens lost to their dark magic.
Desperate to save their families from the wars between kingdoms, three mortals make a bargain with the fae that pits them against one another in a magical race to save their dying world.
Of Ice and Snow
Never bargain with the fae . . .
The fourth, throwaway son of the clanchief, Otec helplessly witnesses his faraway mountain village come under attack by raiders while all the other men are off to war. Cut off from his clan, he must trust a foreign woman stalked by a dark, mysterious magic as they race to save his people.
Dodging raiders, Otec soon discovers that what he thought was a mere raid is actually a full-scale invasion. The woman helping him - the one he's developing feelings for - is not only one of the raiders. She's also his best chance of survival.
Winner of the Rone Award for Best Fantasy/Science Fiction of 2014
Mortally wounded during a raid, seventeen-year-old Ilyenna is healed by winter fairies who present her with a seductive offer: her soul in exchange for escape from the invaders stealing over the mountains. Refusing to abandon her family, she returns to her village and offers up herself as a hostage to save her father's life.
Struggling to survive Darrien's cruelty, Ilyenna finds a measure of solace in her fellow prisoner, Rone's, arms. But it isn't long before she discovers the feud between their clans is merely a distraction from something far worse.
Ilyenna must decide whether to resurrect the power the fairies left behind. Doing so will allow her to defeat Darrien and the other invaders, but if she embraces winter, she will lose herself to that destroying powers - forever.
Of Fire and Ash
One bargain can change everything.
The fairies must never know of Nelay's sight, for the attention of such dark and terrible creatures brings more things dark and terrible. But when Nelay's father is near death, the fairies are the only ones who can save him. All they require is a simple bargain that she'll return the favor one day.
Some bargains are lethal.
Nelay never wanted to be queen. Poised to become the most powerful priestess in Idara, Nelay doesn't have time to become a pretty bauble for the king. She's too busy saving her people from the invading army sweeping across her kingdom.
But in defeat after defeat, Nelay begins to realize a bigger power is at play than that wielded by mere mortals. Only she can stand between the cinders of her once-great nation and the vengeance of a goddess.
