Every harvest moon, the Witch Collector rides into our valley and leads one of us to the home of the immortal Frost King, to remain forever.
Today is that day—Collecting Day.
But he will not come for me. I, Raina Bloodgood, have lived in this village for twenty-four years, and for twenty-four years he has passed me by.
Raina Bloodgood has one desire: kill the Frost King and the Witch Collector who stole her sister. On Collecting Day, she means to exact murderous revenge, but a more sinister threat sets fire to her world. Rising from the ashes is the Collector, Alexus Thibault, the man she vowed to slay and the only person who can help save her sister.
Thrust into an age-old story of ice, fire, and ancient gods, Raina must abandon vengeance and aid the Witch Collector in saving the Frost King or let their empire—and her sister—fall into enemy hands. But the lines between good and evil blur, and Raina has more to lose than she imagined. What is she to do when the Witch Collector is no longer the villain who stole her sister, but the hero who’s stealing her heart?
The Witch Collector is book one in a thrilling romantic fantasy trilogy, perfect for fans of Naomi Novik, Sarah J. Maas, and Jennifer L. Armentrout.
I immediately fell in love with this book when I saw Storygram Tours did the cover reveal. It sounded so good and the cover is stunning. A win-win.
Some Things I Liked
Multiple POVs. I always love that. I also loved that it was more than just the main characters. I loved the additional character we got near the end and would love to see more from her POV in sequels.
New Adult with the tropes I love from YA. Enemies to lovers, but make them older and make them like really enemies. Star crossed lovers but way darker. I just loved that it had the tropes and themes I love about YA but matured to match the slightly older main character.
World building. I loved the world here. It was complex and well thought out. The magic was interesting as well and well balanced. I like the idea of witches and their power is far reaching but it’s not “all powerful”.
I will definitely keep reading this series. I really enjoyed this book and would definitely read more of Charissa Weaks books.
I am so glad I read this book. I finished it all in one sitting because I couldn’t put it down.
