Seoafin “Finnie” Wilde was taught by her parents that every breath was a treasure and to seek every adventure she could find. And she learns this lesson the hard way when they perish in a plane crash.
But she never forgets and when she discovers there is a parallel universe where every person has a twin, she finds a witch who can send her there so she can have the adventure of a lifetime.
But upon arrival in the Winter Wonderland of Lunwyn, she realizes she’s been played by her twin and finds herself walking down the aisle to be wed to The Drakkar.
Thrown into inauspicious circumstances, with years of practice, Finnie bests the challenges and digs into her adventure. But as Frey Drakkar discovers the woman who is his new wife is not Princess Sjofn, a woman he dislikes but instead, his Finnie, a free-spirit with a thirst for venture just like him, without her knowledge he orders his new bride bound to his frozen world, everlasting.
But at the same time Frey plunges Finnie into a web of political intrigue that includes assassination plots, poison, magic, mystery and… dragons.
5 Fantastical Stars!!!!
I’m going to love this series!!! Finnie is wealthy, young, adventurous, and misses her deceased parents desperately. She learns of a parallel world where everyone has a twin and for a lot of money, months of planning, and a powerful modern day witch it’s time to switch places with her twin so that she can see her parents again. Unfortunately her twin in the parallel world wasn’t exactly forthcoming and what awaits her in the other world is way beyond her “Wildest Dreams”!!
Upon landing in the other world she is informed that she is a Princess, the Winter Princess, and is immediately prepared to marry Frey Drakker, who makes it abundantly clear that he’s not happy about their arranged marriage. Frey is a big, handsome, proud, and fierce man who is a Raider and King to The Elves and Dragons!!!!!!!
Finnie has a wild ride ahead of her and what a fantastic journey, I love this world KA has created and can’t wait to read more of this series!!!
4.5 Stars! KA has quite the imagination and knows her way around a fantasy tale; it exceeded my expectations and was a refreshing, pleasant surprise.
I took the plunge and crossed over to another realm and had myself a grand adventure. Suspend disbelief for a while and get lost in this world with Finnie and Frey, it’s the stuff that dreams are made of!
