Shadow and Ice by Gena Showalter

I love every single thing Gena writes. It is riveting and amazing. This is the first book in a new series and I am ready to beg for the next read.

This is a scuff book filled with all the war you need from some of the best characters we have gotten from Gena. The world is EVERYTHING. I am a stickler for world building. I need a good storyline to go with a world to make me fall into it and this book does both of those. Vale and Knox are explosive. They both have their own history to explain how they became two they are but at the end of the day they were explosive and sexy and I am in love with both of them. I cannot wait to have more in this world and from these characters. I am officially hooked. The chemistry is there and the plot leaves you salivating for what comes next.



Knox of Iviland, the most ruthless warrior in All War history, has spent his life fighting others to the death, winning new realms for his king. Now the stakes are higher than ever. If he prevails in the battle for Earth, his slave bands will be removed. Victory is his sole focus…until he meets her. On an arctic getaway with her foster sister, street tough but vulnerable Vale London is shocked to stumble upon a cave filled with ancient gods waging epic combat. When she is inadvertently drawn into their war, she is forced to team up with an unlikely ally—the sexy god who makes her burn with desire. Though Vale is his enemy, Knox is consumed with lust and a fierce need to protect her. But only one combatant can triumph, and he will have to choose: live for freedom, or die for love.
