A village trapped in winter, a tyrannical god, and a girl who will do anything to keep her family alive...
FINALIST FOR THE 2020 CHRISTY AWARD in the Young Adult category
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.

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.

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"
Love it! Such a great family book full of adventure and fun!
I got this for my 13 year old granddaughter and she loved it!
I enjoy reading Christine Cohen’s books. Before this one I had read, The Sinking City. When I heard of this book I was excited to read it. It has a very good outcome and many plot twists. Overall I enjoyed reading this book and definitely recommend it.
My 11 year old loved it and had read it twice!
My son said he loved the plot twist.
