It all started with a kiss. A forbidden fae kiss.

Naia was raised in the shadow of her twin brother, the crown prince, who has iron magic much more powerful than hers. But Naia has wishes of her own.

They awaken when she finds a white fae almost dying in the woods. She only heard of them in stories; the dreaded race that razed cities to the ground, killed her grandparents, almost rid Aluria of humans—until they disappeared. Now, twenty years later, are they back? Is there another war coming? But the fae is evasive and secretive. He’s also alluring and fascinating, more beautiful than anyone she’s ever seen. And then it happens: she kisses him—and nothing will be the same again.

In another kingdom, Leah, a necromancer princess, has to find a husband in less than four days, during the Gathering, when royals from all over Aluria meet. Her family makes it very clear that she can pick any prince she wants—except one: Naia’s brother. And it turns out that he’s the one; the one who makes her heart beat faster.Meanwhile, war looms over the land. One of the kingdoms is amassing immense power. The White Fae might be returning. Amidst it all, Naia and her brother struggle with newfound magical powers, family secrets, and most of all, their own treacherous hearts.

About the Author:

I’m originally from Brazil but I’ve been living in Canada for over 10 years now. I have some influence from Brazilian writers and Brazilian culture, but I also read popular books in English. I watched some Anime as a kid, my favorite being Yamato.

I’ve always loved to write stories, and I like to always include romance, action and humor in my writing. I think stories can touch us deeply. I live in Montreal, Canada, with my son.

My books include the Ya fantasy series Kingdom of Curses and Shadows, Portals to Whyland, and the sci-fi standalones The Sphere of Infinity and Star Spark.

First off I want to say a big thank you to TBR Tours & Beyond and the Publishers for letting me review Frozen Hearts and Death Magic by Day Leitao. I had no idea I needed this book in my life as it literally felt like a glossy soap opera. Here we have Aluria which contains different Kingdoms and where some of our main characters come from. In Umbrar where twins Naia and Fel who have iron magic and in Frostlake we have Leah who is a necromancer. And finally we have River who is a Fae or ancient as he calls himself.

There is so much going on in this book first off all the kingdoms meeting together so new alliance s can be made via marriage as well as an old enemy who could be rearing their ugly head and yet through out the whole book there is a lot of comedic moments and it showed that Day had quite a funny bone. I could talk more about this book but there would be spoilers and I never do spoilers . I am hoping there will be a sequel. For all these reasons I had to rate it 5 stars
