I have been waiting for this book for months now, the cover is GORGEOUS and the book itself is Game of Thrones-esque which means I NEED IT!! I am dying for it to come out but there is SIX MORE MONTHS left, I am already preparing for this book to become my #1 book of 2014.

Now, the Winterians’ only hope for freedom is the eight survivors who managed to escape, and who have been waiting for the opportunity to steal back Winter’s magic and rebuild the kingdom ever since.

So when scouts discover the location of the ancient locket that can restore Winter’s magic, Meira decides to go after it herself. Finally, she’s scaling towers, fighting enemy soldiers, and serving her kingdom just as she’s always dreamed she would. But the mission doesn’t go as planned, and Meira soon finds herself thrust into a world of evil magic and dangerous
