Review – Ambrosia




Frost and Nectar #2


C.N. Crawford


Paranormal Romance


After the Seelie king Torin nearly froze me to death, I plunged through a portal into my true home. Turns out, my hometown is a wild Unseelie kingdom known as the Court of Sorrows. When Torin follows me and sees my new horns, he quickly realizes that his intended bride is an enemy of his realm. In fact, his name for my kind is “demon.”
But even if I have the horns of an Unseelie, I’m not welcome here, either. Queen Mab and her monstrous soldiers are delighted to torment us, accusing me of being a traitor. If we want to get out of the Court of Sorrows with our lives, the only hope we have is to stay as close to each other as possible–even if it means fleeing in horseback and sharing a bed. Every moment is bittersweet, since it could be our last–and Torin is condemned to kill anyone he loves.


5stars rating

I always love it when I finish a really good book… Do you know the feeling? You sit there with a sappy grin on your face, totally mellow and… sigh… it was good.
In other words: this book was amazing. Get it 😀


We start the book right where it ended in the last. So if you haven’t read Frost yet, don’t read any further! You have been warned.
So yeah, Ava and Torin are now in the Court of Sorrows, the Unseelie lands. And everything and everyone is out to kill them. We moved around in this instalment, but, as always, all scenes and environments were clear and well described. It was nice to sit back and enjoy the story.

Character development:

Sooooooooo Ava is an Unseelie? I honestly didn’t see that one coming 😀
With both of them stuck on Unseelie lands, they need to find a way back to Faerie asap before Queen Mab finds them. Which, of course, is easier said than done.
Torin and Ava will need to rely on themselves and each other to get through this.
Will they be able to deny their ever-growing desire and feelings for each other? Well, buy the book and find out! :p

Pacing & Flow:

The pacing was a bit slow at the start (but in hindsight, that was a good thing :)). I think it picked up around 35-40% in and was smooth sailing till the end… well, if you don’t mind the twists and turns spread throughout the book! (which I obviously don’t)
Great balance between all the conversations and the action.

Final Thoughts:

I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy of this book, and all I can really say is that this is a winner! So, again, if you’re unsure, don’t be and pick this one up!
