    Thea Harrison is a master weaver of words!

    Amid the Winter Snow is a holiday anthology that includes novellas by Grace Draven, Thea Harrison, Jeffe Kennedy & Elizabeth Hunter. My review is for The Chosen by Thea Harrison. This novella can be read as a stand-alone if your new to Thea Harrison. But if you’re already a fan of Thea Harrison & the “Elder Races” you are especially going to enjoy this read! Thea has created a crossover otherworld tale that revolves around loyalty, love, allegiance and let’s not forget magic. This is the story of Wulf & Lily and how they find their love together amid treachery, danger & a mystical destiny. As this is a novella it is a short read but Thea Harrison has, as usual done a fantastic job building the depth of the characters & a very intriguing storyline. Thea Harrison is a master weaver of fantastical worlds & deep textured characters that you fall in love with. I don’t read very many novellas because the stories are just too short for me and as such, I really would have loved for this great story to have been longer! I know you’ll enjoy this story as much as I did! **I received the ARC for Amid the Winter Snow in exchange for an honest review.

    A feel-good read for a cold winter's night

    This is a lovely read for the holiday season, a set of four charming stories that tell tales of hope and love. Of the four authors, I had only read Thea Harrison's books previously. I have to say that I love anthologies that introduce new-to-me authors, and this was no exception. I loved every story in this anthology. The characters are engaging, well-developed and believable. Grace Draven's “In the Darkest Midnight” tells the tale of Jahna, who overcomes many challenges in her coming of age, and grows into a confident and strong woman who knows love when she finds it. Thea Harrison's “The Chosen” is a captivating tale of a goddess's chosen representative in her struggles to find the right path for her people. It has many surprises along the way, and like many of Thea Harrison's stories, the story is dictated by the strong characters she creates. “The Storm” by Elizabeth Hunter is a part of her Irin Chronicles series. Since I had never read her stories before, I had the sense that there was some background that was not not part of the novella, but I still enjoyed Renata' and Max's tale and will be looking for more of her books to read. Jeffe Kennedy's “The Snows of Windroven” is likewise an offshoot of previously written series, easy to read on its own. Ami and Ash must face trials and heartache to find their way to a lasting relationship, including overcoming the past and their own assumptions. Overall this anthology was a nice read, a feel-good book for cold winter nights.

    Enchanting

    The Chosen a novella in the Elder Races world created by Thea Harrison. It brings to light new faces along with a deeper insight into the crossover worlds referenced about in the Elder races series till now. The focus is on illuminating a new mythos with brand new characters and relationships. This book introduces Lily, the Chosen of Camaeline Abbey. She has a strong connection to Camael, the elder races goddess of the hearth and as the Chosen has the responsibility of looking after the welfare of the kingdom of Ys. Wulfgar Hahn is a highly powerful warrior who ascended to the position of Protector of Braugne after his brother's murder rumored to be at his hand. But things are not always what they seem. Together, after starting out as potential enemies Wulfgar and Lily work together to save their kingdoms from the nefarious designs of their neighbor Guerlan. Thea Harrison's novella is enchanting and a worthy holiday read. The other three stories just add to the magic. Thanks to the publisher for the ARC

    An excellent anthology!

    “In the Darkest Midnight” by Grace Draven A fascinating tale of a girl often stared at, and tormented by petty people for her looks. She has an innate strength, built upon by a swordmaster who includes her in her brother’s training. I love reading about the country’s legends, and stories of those who experienced its history. Great reading and a sweet love story! “The Chosen” by Thea Harrison What a splendid midwinter tale. It is well-written, with richly woven intrigue, and is truly romantic! Magic is used for good and for ill throughout. Which side will prevail? Lily is an extraordinary young woman. Guided by the Goddess from a very tender age, she now carries responsibility for the well-being of her people. She knows she will need to choose wisely between two men. She is strong in her faith, bold enough to ask for what she desires, wise enough to choose the right time to act. Wulf is watchful, strong, determined, well prepared for battle, needing to avenge his brother’s death and the violation of his country. See what happens when these two are brought together. Excellent reading! “The Storm” by Elizabeth Hunter Because I am unfamiliar with the Irin world, I found it rather confusing in the beginning. Once into the story a bit more, it drew me inexorably on. Renata’s and Maxim’s stories are intense and the resolution highly satisfying. A midwinter treasure! “The Snows of Windroven” by Jeffe Kennedy Amelia is Queen of Avonlidgh. Ash, her lover, is a half-breed ex-convict. With the queen’s twins and entourage, they are making an ill advised trip to Windroven for the celebration of the Feast of Moranu. Ami and Ash are masters of miscommunication! One feels unworthy; it doesn’t matter to the other one. They each decide to do what they think the other wants. Traveling like this through winter snows is fraught with danger. Even the castle itself has hidden threats. Although it took a bit of time to orient myself in the story, I really enjoyed the developing relationships between Ami, Ash and the young twins.

    An interesting read...

    A child lured to a new world by a goddess and destined to lead her people to their future meets a man forced into a leadership role by tragedy and perceived as a villain. Set in a world loosely connected to the Elder Races series, The Chosen, captured my interest and made me want to delve deeper into the story. To be honest, the Elder Races connection was not immediately obvious and I unsure about what I should expect from the book. Thankfully, I approached it with an open mind and found that Thea Harrison had penned yet another wonderful story. The main character’s romance was sweet and quirky given that each character was from very different backgrounds. The story will appeal to fans of the Elder Races series and anyone that likes Thea Harrison’s works. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
