I won a copy of this through Goodreads. so thank you C.B Cole.

Winter is the story about a normal teenage girl who feels detached from most of her life. After a night out at a concert with her boyfriend, she meets the Lead Singer of a Band called InHuman and that's when everything starts to change and the truth comes creeping out.

Ok, i liked this story but i didn't like it. It was like other Y/A paranormal romance stories, but it wasn't and i liked that about it. The story and the premise was go
Woohoo, another first reads win for me :D I'm sad to say that I didn't end up adoring this though... not through any fault of the book, but just because it really wasn't my thing. Key ingredients: seemingly normal human girl being chased after by three guys at once. Two of them aren't entirely human. They're also brothers. One's the King of Darkness, the other's the King of Light. Seemingly normal girl turns out to be not entirely human either. See? It's like giving a lactose-intolerant celiac a ...more

The preview of this was pretty awful so I am 100 % I will never read this whole book. Its full of such joyful things as:

the main characters boyfriend yelling at her to stay normal when she spaces out. (probably something supernatural)

The main character has internal musings about how she is the greatest person ever for martyring herself by accompanying her boyfriend to a concert while at the same time thinking she could do better.

And the boyfriend is thinking about how lucky he was to snap her u
While not really the genre that I typically read, I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by "Winter". The beginning of this story might lead the reader to plan on settling in for just another young adult supernatural romance (yuck!), but quickly weaves into one of those fairy tales that is really tough to put down. C.B. Cole has done a very convincing job with the main character Winter, and writes with a very readable style that should be accessible to all sci-fi/fantasy fans. Though I would ...more

Winter is a solid first effort with compelling characters and a well-paced plot. I can't wait to see what the next book C.B. Cole writes will hold.

The story is a quick and easy read that takes you through twists and turns of a young woman's life as she discovers a lie and something unusual about herself. The story explores C.B. Cole's detailed world of Fae.

While the title's namesake discovers that much of her life has been a lie I watched eagerly to see how she and those around her would respon
Good story but a little long for my taste and didn't like what the characters were. No offense but just my personal preference. Others who like this type of story will love this book though.
This was a great read with a twist. I can't wait to see what's next.
It was a good book but I just couldn't get 100% wrapped into it.
