Endless Winter by J.A. Armitage is a fantastical story with a ton of twists and turns. The book is well written, interesting and completely original. I never knew what was coming next in the story, and found myself quite surprised.
The story begins as Anais is locked in a dark room, and she has no idea how she got there. PANIC TIME! There is no door knob, no sound and no light. She is trapped in this room for days, somehow dinner appears, but she cannot figure out how someone got in the room without her noticing. As the reader I was on high alert, what’s happening, where is this going. We let me assure you this is no torture/crime book. Oh no, not in the slightest. Anais finally meets her keeper, and she is a beautiful young woman. Seriously? Yes, but you must read on to find out the why!
Aethelu is holding Anais against her will. This is totally out of character for her, but it is for Anais’s safety. She just can’t explain to her the reasons yet. You see no one in their right mind would believe that Aethelu was really 600 years old, and was given not quite eternal life by drinking a magical elixir that her father created. She also must let her captive know in time that there is a deranged man named Jago on the loose that killed her parents, it was no accident, like you were led to believe, and now he wants to kill the Earth’s population as well. Talk about a headache!
These two ladies come together as friends, finding companionship in a crazy situation. They begin a courtship that is cute, but in my opinion rushed. I wished it had taken just little longer for them to admit their feelings for one another. The supporting cast in interesting, but there are many of them and it was hard to keep up with them all. Overall this book is fun, and was an interesting read. It is free on Kindle Unlimited or just $.99 if you are not. Totally worth it, and I look forward to reading more from J.A. Armitage!
