Updated: Feb 23

Author: Day Leitao

Genre:YA Fantasy Romance

Release date: 22 Jan 2022

Hello fellow booklovers

I’m soo incredibly happy to be sharing my review as part of the TBR and Beyond Tours’ blog tour for Frozen Hearts and Death Magic—A Throne of Glass meets The Cruel Prince,telenovela-style YA fantasy with magic, royals and mysteriously handsome Fae.

I want to thank both TBR and Beyond Tours and Day Leitao for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

You can also find the rest of the Tour Schedule below!


It all started with a kiss. A forbidden fae kiss.

Naia was raised in the shadow of her twin brother, the crown prince, who has iron magic much more powerful than hers. But Naia has wishes of her own.

They awaken when she finds a white fae almost dying in the woods. She only heard of them in stories; the dreaded race that razed cities to the ground, killed her grandparents, almost rid Aluria of humans—until they disappeared. Now, twenty years later, are they back? Is there another war coming? But the fae is evasive and secretive. He’s also alluring and fascinating, more beautiful than anyone she’s ever seen. And then it happens: she kisses him—and nothing will be the same again.

In another kingdom, Leah, a necromancer princess, has to find a husband in less than four days, during the Gathering, when royals from all over Aluria meet. Her family makes it very clear that she can pick any prince she wants—except one: Naia’s brother. And it turns out that he’s the one; the one who makes her heart beat faster.Meanwhile, war looms over the land. One of the kingdoms is amassing immense power. The White Fae might be returning. Amidst it all, Naia and her brother struggle with newfound magical powers, family secrets, and most of all, their own treacherous hearts.


This was an intrigue-filled and utterly captivating read that I really enjoyed. I’m a sucker for a Fae romance so I knew, as soon as I read the premise that I needed to get my hands on this one… and it doesn’t disappoint! There’s intrigue, ALOT of drama and some good romances to fully immerse yourself in.

I loved Naia who was possibly my favourite character (followed by Leah,who had the most emotional character arc) and truly loved her chemistry with River, which although quite fast, was still really enjoyable.

I have to say that the telenovela influences are pretty strong (which I liked) and the revelations that unfold and the drama that ensues is certainly tv worthy. It is told through multiple POVs (Naia, Fel, River and Leah) which is something to keep in mind if you don’t enjoy multi-POV stories.

Overall, this is an entertaining and rather creative take on the YA and high fantasy genre that I feel fans of high stakes drama (and soap opera plot twists) will be sure to enjoy.
