So on this blog, there are contact details that allow authors to contact me to ask me to read their books. Brittni is one such author who contacted me and ordered me a physical copy in return for an honest review.

Author: Brittni Chenelle
Age Range: YA

Preorder Links: Amazon UK
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.
Kingdom Cold is an easy, enjoyable read. It focuses on multiple different characters but mostly Charlotte, Young and his brother Minseo. You follow their story from their first meeting to the end of the attack on the kingdom. They’re fascinating characters who grow and change. Not always for the best but it makes for some compelling reading. The way the characters act and the way they see things makes you view other characters in certain ways. Even if that’s not necessarily true.
There were some issues. Where the story is enjoyable, there isn’t always enough detail. Entire important scenes were skipped so it could feel a little like your skim reading. That aside I didn’t want to put the book down. It’s short and you’ll get through it really easy.
The good news is though I thought this book was a standalone the author has informed me there will be a sequel! It’ll focus on Minseo and his life in Vires. I won’t lie, I really didn’t like him in Kingdom Cold. He did some stuff that I really can’t accept or get over. But I want to see what Vires is like, I wanna see how he gets past that and grows even more. So I am excited.
If you’re looking for a short, easy to read fantasy and you want to support more indie authors then this would be a great book to get.
