Angra is alive, his Decay is spreading—and no one is safe.
Meira will do anything to save her world. With Angra trying to break through her mental defenses, she desperately needs to learn to control her own magic—so when the leader of a mysterious Order from Paisly offers to teach her, she jumps at the chance. But the true solution to stopping the Decay lies in a labyrinth deep beneath the Season Kingdoms. To defeat Angra, Meira will have to enter the labyrinth, destroy the very magic she’s learning to control—and make the biggest sacrifice of all.
Mather will do anything to save his queen. He needs to rally the Children of the Thaw, find Meira—and finally tell her how he really feels. But with a plan of attack that leaves no kingdom unscathed and a major betrayal within their ranks, winning the war—and protecting Meira—slips farther and farther out of reach.
Ceridwen will do anything to save her people. Angra had her brother killed, stole her kingdom, and made her a prisoner. But when she’s freed by an unexpected ally who reveals a shocking truth behind Summer’s slave trade, Ceridwen must take action to save her true love and her kingdom, even if it costs her what little she has left.
As Angra unleashes the Decay on the world, Meira, Mather, and Ceridwen must bring the kingdoms of Primoria together…or lose everything.
I’m really excited because I get to share an excerpt with you guys from one of my most anticipate series enders today! Frost Like Night comes out TODAY and I can’t wait to read it! I feel in love with the world Sara created in Snow Like Ashes and I’ve enjoyed seeing the characters’ growth throughout the two books so I really cannot wait to see what becomes of them in this last book as well as how (if?) they defeat Angra!
This comes from the end of Chapter Six in Mather’s POV. He’s just been caught by a certain someone, and the confrontation is . . . volatile, to say the least.
Two of Angra’s soldiers grabbed Mather and kicked him to his knees while the other two rid him of weapons. Meira’s chakram—damn it, damn it—the Ventrallan knife, and—
“Now this is a surprise.” Angra took Cordell’s conduit from the soldier who found it. He glanced at Theron. “Yours, I believe.”
Theron took the conduit from Angra, the purple jewel on the hilt hazy in his palm. Mather, still held on the ground like a man bowing to his king, twitched in defiance when Theron bent to his level.
“I think this will be far more useful in your hands. I no longer have need of it.” Theron pressed the tip of the blade to Mather’s cheek, though not forcefully enough to break skin.
Mather jerked again, but the soldiers kept him pinned. Theron’s threat didn’t make sense—he’d let Mather keep the conduit, the dagger?
Theron twisted the blade. Blood trickled in a warm bead down Mather’s face, and he imagined it draining the hatred out of him, releasing it to pool at Theron’s feet.
A smile, and Theron pulled the blade away to lean still closer, angling his mouth to Mather’s ear.
“And every time you see it, I want you to think of her with me. I want you to know that when I win this war, I will do so without this weak magic. And when this ends, and Meira is mine, there won’t have been a damn thing you could have done to stop me.”
