All my life, I’d known my marriage would be arranged. What I never expected was to fall in love.

My betrothed was arrogance dressed in royal finery, and I longed to both disappear and step closer whenever he entered the room.

As princess of the Moon Kingdom, and daughter of the cruelest king our land had ever seen, I was well-versed in deceit and debauchery. The Sun Kingdom’s sly prince was no threat to me.

Assuming that was a grave mistake. For the ever-present smirk, irritating charm, and adoring gleam in his eyes began to melt the ice encasing my heart.

All too soon, hatred turned to love. I was captured by something I’d rarely experienced before—happiness.

But I should’ve known better.

After all, I’d been raised by a monster. And little did I know I was about to marry one.

Contains dark themes and a HEA. No cliffhanger. Recommended for 18+  

Ella Fields + Fantasy = A MUST FUCKING READ!

I read everything Ella puts out without fail, because she can bring emotions out of me like no other! Before I go into one of her books, I brace myself for impact. I'm not saying her books just make me cry. No! Her books make me feel every emotion imaginable! I'll be outraged, devastated, happy, laughing, and turned on sometimes in the same chapter. She has the ability to rip out my heart, stomp on my soul, and make me feel like I need to thank her for the abuse. Writing like that is something that should not be missed, so I make sure I never do!

A King So Cold is a completely different subgenre than we usually get from this unicorn. It's fantasy romance, and since fantasy is one of my favorite genres, I couldn't have been more excited to hear the news! If you want to know if I enjoyed this book as much as everything else I've read by this author, the answer is YES! 

The storyline is surprising and intriguing. The characters are complex and interesting. The romance is angsty, complicated, and beautiful, and the writing is exquisite. I love everything about this book! 

I won't be discussing the plot, because there is A LOT that could easily be spoiled if I do. I recommend going into this one blind. Just know that everything you love about Ella Fields is still present in this novel. Her writing shines in the same way it always does. The story fucks with your head and your heart, and the hero and the heroine make you want to kiss them and beat them in the head with a shovel depending on what point in the story you've reached. It's unlike any other fantasy romance I've read, and I can't recommend it enough! 

It's also one of the only books I've been able to get through since quarantine began. If that isn't a compliment, I don't know what is! Fantasy romance fans, this one's for you!
