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 twenty-four years 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 in saving the Frost King 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?
The Witch Collector is book one in a thrilling romantic fantasy trilogy, perfect for fans of Naomi Novik, Sarah J. Maas, and Jennifer L. Armentrout.

I do not know exactly what I expected when I sat down to read this book, but I definitely did not expect to finish in one sitting and it be one of my favorite reads this year. I have read quite a few amazing books this year, and this catapulted into my top 5 of the year! I loved everything about it. Enemies to lovers is one of my favorite tropes, and this was a slow burn enemies to lovers that just absolutely swept me away.
This book is completely immersive and I was drawn in immediately. These chararcters were so well ;that it felt real to me. Everything just felt real .. like I could feel the fear for when the witch collector was coming, the tension between the main characters aas they struggled through this journey. Also… can we get an amen for a speaking impaired mc. Raina is strong, determined, hard-working, and strong-willed .. and I love her character so so much. She might be one of my favorite female mc’s ever. She is put through so many trials and so much heartache you think there is no way she can get through it. There is so much action in this book that never once did I feel that it was lagging.
The Witch Collector… Alexus… oh my… I already knew he would probably be my downfall… but than this artwork was released….
….and I am actually dead. Seriously if the summary did not pull you in .. and this doesnt’t … you are hopeless.. and we can’t be friends haha.. I jest…. kinda…
Anyway, he is everything you could hope for in a book boyfriend. Strong, ridiculously good-looking, smart, kind, loving, powerful, handsome, caring, did I mention he is cute?? Raina and Alexus have this magnetic energy between them that is just so yummy. There chemistry is strong, and wow there are some sexy moments. ::fans self::
The romance is strong, but do not let it fool you.. the storyline, magical powers, and side characters are just as strong and just as enthralling. This is not a stand alone and the ending leaves you craving much much more from this world.
