Frostbound Throne: Song of Night

May Sage


Paranormal Romance


Vale was born in battle seven hundred years ago, and in all this time, he’s never encountered an enemy that poses a real challenge. Until now.
Devi has been told terrifying tales of vengeful gods since her youth. She never thought that she would wake up in a world where she had to fight them.
They’re opposites, he gets on her nerves, she is under his skin, and if they’re to survive, they must join forces.


4stars rating

Ahhh, the wonderful fae courts… how I have missed you! We start (and stay most of the book) in the Court of Night, the Unseelie court. We meet up with Queen Shae again and get the lay of the land as it is at the moment.
While a lot of information is funneled to the reader, it never feels too much. Rather, we learn as the characters learn or explain. The scenes and environments were clear and well-described.

Character development:

Right off the bat, I really liked our two main characters, Devi and Vale. I mean, one is the queen’s ward with dark secrets, and the other is the queen’s son and has a (very) dark side. Secrets, mistrust, and attraction are the keywords in this first installment. Devi and Vale get to know each other better throughout the book, learning not to judge a book by its cover (or base it on the rumors).
And then, of course, we have the side characters such as Shae and Killian, who I hope we will see much more of in the next installment! All characters feel real and alive. They have their own hopes, dreams, motives, and reasons for doing what they do. Great writing!!

Pacing & Flow:

It took me a chapter or two to get into the book, but once I was… I was stuck 😀 I just kept going back to it, sometimes even reading just a few pages cause I’m busy moving. Very nice balance between the action and all the conversation going on.

The book itself:

The book was well written with no (noticeable) errors. There is some sex described (if that is important to you).
The book has 266 pages, spread over 22 chapters, and is told from multiple points of view.

Final Thoughts:

After reading the prequel ‘Thorns and Crowns’, it took me waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too long to get started on this book. Needless to say, the next installment will be read a lot sooner 😀 This series is off to such a great start, and I can’t wait to read more!
