A warrior shrouded in darkness. A witch sworn to revenge. A winter unbounded.
Cursed. Wacław has a secret. In the day, he fights desperately to prove himself to the father who rejected him, but when he sleeps, his soul rises, invisible and free. A useless power.
Until the goddess of winter and death unleashes the storm within him.
Abandoned. Otylia hates no one more than the winter goddess who killed her mother—except maybe her once best friend Wacław. It’s been four years since she saved his life using forbidden magic. Her thanks? Abandonment. She doesn’t need him anyway.
But when the spring goddess falls silent the same day Wacław reveals the pact he’s made with her enemy, Otylia realizes the horrific truth. Winter will not end, and her lost friend is her only hope of discovering why.
Embark on an epic journey through a world rooted in Slavic mythology that has scheming gods, menacing beasts, cursed forests, slow burn romance, and plenty of secrets to uncover.
