Throne of Ice: A Gothic Faerie Tale

Red Rose Books

 A Gothic Faerie Tale is a blend of faerie tales, folklore, myth & legends with action/adventure and a magical touch of romance. 

The peacefully Kingdom of Turia awaits the birth of their king and queen's first child, but a cruel twist of fate and a demon's intervention destroys their lives forever. When Princess Khione's beloved father dies, she despairs at ever finding love and happiness again. She finds comfort in her nursemaid Agnes and her friendship with Gerda, Agnes’s daughter. Years later, events orchestrated by her heartless and jealous mother, Queen Eleanor takes away Khione's freedom and almost her life! She is forced to flee into a nearby forest inhabited by the Fae.

Banished from Turia, Agnes and Gerda try to start a new life in the nearby Kingdom of Agraunia. There Gerda befriends her neighbour's son Kai. Their close friendship eventually blossoms into love. Their happiness is short-lived. Kai suddenly becomes cold and distant. When Kai disappears, rumours persist that he is dead. Only Gerda believes he is still alive and instinct tells her he is in danger. She sets out alone to rescue him, blissfully unaware of the danger before her. 
Throne of Ice is the first book in the Gothic Faerie tale series and new includes the bonus chapter Summer Solstice. The story continues in Queen of Thorns.

For those who love a story with strong female protagonists, and so much more than an adaptation or reworked fairy tale. Perfect for fans of Chanda Hahn, Naomi Novik, K M Shea and Marissa Meyer.
