⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The Witch Collector by @charissaweaksauthor
I received an advanced ebook of this from @netgalley and @cityowlbooks and absolutely loved it!
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 all that time 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 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?
At the beginning of the book, Raina and her mother, along with the rest of the village are getting ready for the harvest supper and the arrival of the Witch Collector. Raina's mother arrives home with a bushel of apples that need to be pealed and prepared for the harvest supper. The harvest supper is where the action of the story truly begins and so I thought I would peel a couple of apples of my own and honor the beginning of this incredible new fantasy series by making some cinnamon streusel apple muffins. With the days becoming shorter and shorter and the weather becoming colder and colder, snuggling up with a good book, a cup of tea, and a warm, fresh from the oven muffin is exactly what I want. I used a recipe I found from the blog @forkknifeswoon and they are truly delicious and perfect for the season. Unfortunately nothing this delightful awaited Raina, but I have high hopes that by the end of the trilogy she'll find some sort of a happy ending.
