Early Review: Shadow and Ice by Gena Showalter

Oct 22, 2018

Gena Showalter, the New York Times bestselling author who brought you the Lords of the Underworld, introduces a scorching new paranormal romance series… Gods of War.

Knox of Iviland has spent his life competing in the All Wars, where vicious warriors with supernatural powers fight to the death to claim new realms. One winner takes everything—and all losers die. Enslaved as a child for his ability to control shadows, the most ruthless champion in history will stop at nothing to kill his king. But first he must win the battle for Earth. When a fearsome weapon imprisons every combatant in ice, centuries pass without progress…until she walks in.

Vale London craves a fun arctic getaway with her foster sister before settling down to open a bakery. Street-tough but vulnerable, she is unprepared to find ancient gods escaping a frozen cave—merciless beings who target her when she inadvertently enters their war.

Though Vale is now his enemy, Knox is consumed with lust and a fierce need to protect her. But only one combatant can prove victorious, and he will have to choose: live for freedom, or die for love.


Amazing!!! Showalter catapults readers into a new and vibrant story filled to the brim with other worldly awesomeness! From the very beginning you will find yourself compelled to turn the pages. Characters will take a hold of you, defying expectations. Unique story line intertwined with recognizable realms and legends.  Knox is sublime!  He will leave you quivering for more.  Vale is all kinds of bad-ass!  Together these two astonishing characters transform the story into a non stop smorgasbord of battles and victories. Knox and Vale are a feverous combination of everything you want in a hero and a heroine.  Shadow and Ice is a new paradigm in the world of fantasy. I will be breathlessly waiting for the next book in the Gods of War series.
