9780985739423: Winter Queen (Fairy Queens #2)

Winner of the Rone Award for Best Fantasy/Science Fiction of 2014

Becoming a winter queen will make Ilyenna as cold and cruel and deadly as winter itself, but it might be the only way to save her people from a war they have no hope of winning. 

Mortally wounded during a raid, seventeen-year-old Ilyenna is healed by winter fairies who present her with a seductive offer: become one of them and share their power over winter. But that power comes with a price. If she accepts, she will become a force of nature, lose her humanity, and abandon her family. 

Unwilling to pay such a high price, Ilyenna is enslaved by one of the invaders, Darrien. While in captivity, she learns the attack wasn't just a simple raid but part of a larger plot to overthrow her entire nation. 

With the enemy stealing over the mountains and Darrien coming to take her to his bed, Ilyenna must decide whether to resurrect the power the fairies left behind. Doing so will allow her to defeat Darrien and the other invaders, but if she embraces winter, she will lose herself to that destroying power--forever.

From the Author:

I wish I could say I grew up on novels by the likes of Robin McKinley, Mercedes Lackey, or Patricia A. McKillip. Alas, I didn't  even  know high fantasy existed until I reached my early twenties. I can say, however, that once I discovered the genre, my secret desire to become a writer transformed into a drive I couldn't ignore. 

And yet, much as I enjoyed devouring novels by the fantasy greats, I felt there was something missing. I searched for a novel that was more accessible to the average reader .
I found some that came close (Kristin Cashore, Shannon Hale, and Jesscia Day George), but it seemed most revolved around fairy-tales. Wasn't there anything completely original but told in the same way? It was then that I discovered my own voice-that hard to define style unique to each author-was exactly what I'd been looking for.
  So there you are. High fantasy novels told in a more fairytale voice. Heck, I even wrote one with fairies (though they're more elemental beings than pixies). Some of my work is a little darker than others (Winter Queen, for example), but all of them resonate with that part of us that affirms that there is good and evil, and good always triumphs. Though sometimes just barely.
