Book details

Christine Cohen was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. She spent most of her formative years roaming evergreen forests with her sister and a stalwart yellow lab, feeding her love of adventure a steady diet of stick forts and slingshots. Now she lives with her husband and three kids in a delightfully rural college town. When she's not writing, she pursues other creative outlets like baking sweet things and eating more than her share. The Winter King is her first novel.

Goodreads Reviews

Ever since Cora's father disappeared through the ice, whispers about her family's "curse" have grown increasingly louder. Desperate to help her mother and siblings survive another bleak season in the Winter King's frozen grasp, Cora begins to bend (and even break) the rules she has kept since she was a little girl. But when she discovers a secret that's much bigger than herself, she realizes too late that she has put herself—and those she loves—in even greater peril.

Wintry and dangerous but hauntingly lovely, The Winter King is the debut novel from author Christine Cohen.

Magnificent book!!

I first listened to this book on canon plus but enjoyed it so much that I purchased it. I have recommended it to multiple people and have even done a book report on it. Christine has created a book that is enjoyable by all ages that it is intended for and above. I hope to one day be an author and would be unbelievably happy if I would write something half this good! I also would highly recommend Christine's other book "The Sinking City"

Good title. It made me want to read it.

I listened to the audio version on the Canon app and enjoyed it a lot. It was refreshing to have a female character who acts with courage in the way a real woman would rather than like Hollywood's MMA skin headed she- hulks. You could be very sympathetic to her and I enjoyed all the characters. I sent a copy to my fifteen year old cousin and she read it within a week. She told me she had been wanting it for awhile and greatly enjoyed it.

The Winter King

I really enjoyed this story, particularly getting to know the characters that Christine created. They were real and convincing, and at times unexpected - different from me. As I walked with them in a world both familiar and foreign, chilling at times but also beautiful, I felt like I experienced a little more of the wonder and beauty that brims over from our own world. Definitely looking forward to rereading this story!

We love the Winter King

I love this book! I am reading this to my family and we are about half way through. We love the characters and we all have guesses about the way it will end. If Christine Cohen has more books or if she is thinking about writing a sequel to this book, we are all in. Thank you for publishing high quality books like this. With Love, The York Family :)
