Book Review: Winter King by J.S. Dark


Winter King

The Wyth Courts #1

By JS Dark

Release date: Oct 16th

Genre: Steamy Paranormal Romance


His court is dying, and she’s his only hope …


After the evil monsters of the Tywyll Forest poison the Winter Court, a prophecy comes to pass: only the sacrifice of a human life can save my land.

I’ll do anything to keep my court and my people safe.

So I travel to the human world, to kill this insignificant human …


My life is in shambles. It always has been. But it gets only worse when I’m kidnapped and taken to a magical world where fairies—excuse me, faes!—exist. And apparently, they are in danger and I’m the only one who can save them. It doesn’t hurt that the Winter King is oh, so very hot and he seems as drawn to me as I am to him.

Though, when I learn what I have to do to save them, I panic.

Too bad this is only one of my problems—it seems the Winter King is not the only one after my life, and in this strange world, I have nowhere to run.


Winter King is a standalone steamy paranormal romance with a HEA. Each book in the Wyth Courts series will feature a different couple, with a complete story, and a HEA. Suited for readers 18+ due to language and sex scenes.



Read the 1st 5 chapters:




I hadn’t expected movement in the middle of the night, but sure enough, the female human left her apartment building in a hurry just after four in the morning. She hugged a thin jacket over a tee and sweatpants. A second later, a taxi showed up and she boarded it.

Where in the freezing ice was she going at this time?

Regardless of my thoughts, I changed into my wolf form and followed her.

Just like I had done all day long.

Right after Haera told me how to save my people, I used my medallion to teleport to the human world. Haera had helped. She cast a spell over me, saying I would end up near the one I needed to save my court.

A selfless, pure-hearted human.

When she told me that, I scoffed. A selfless, pure-hearted human? Those were like myths. They didn’t exist. But Haera assured me I just had to get near the human and I would know.

The moment I saw Amber leaving the restaurant after being fired, with her long, black hair whipping on the chilly wind and her bright green eyes looking up at the clear skies full of hope and wonder, I knew it was her. Not because she was absolutely stunning and I couldn’t take my eyes off her, but because the pull I felt deep in my core told me that she was the one I needed.

She was the only one who could save my people.

I will admit that when I first started this book I wasn’t sure how it would turn out. The story was falling flat for me in the beginning. I didn’t feel anything for the characters and the story seemed pretty straight forward.

That being said, KEEP reading. I hit fifty percent and couldn’t put this book down.

One of the things that I absolutely couldn’t get enough of was J.S. Dark’s descriptions of the world. You wanted to be a part of the ice kingdom. I wanted to see the city. The land was a character all its own. I’d love a drawing of this place to hang on my wall. Queen Elsa eat your heart out!

Amber as a character felt “too good.” I know that they needed someone pure of heart to save the world but she seemed so unrealistic to me. That’s why I kept rolling my eyes over her. Cade was a ruler who had conflicts and I loved that because it felt real. There are natural stressors that come with trying to save your people and do the right thing.

So as a couple I was ok with them being together. I just had to embrace the fact that this was who Cade loved. This wasn’t my favorite love story but my heart was happy with the happily ever after.
