#Review & $50 Amazon Gift Card #Giveaway: Winter by Sarah Remy

Welcome to my tour stop for Winter by Sarah Remy! Winter is the first book in The Manhattan Exiles series and is a New Adult Urban Fantasy (16+ for violence and language). This is a review tour that runs July 6-17th.   Check out the tour page for the full schedule.

About the Book:

Winter’s not your ordinary teenager. 

While trying to rescue his Sidhe family from exile, he mistakenly unleashes the monstrous Dread Host upon humankind.

Winter’s mother wants nothing more than to find a way to break the curse keeping the Sidhe imprisoned on Manhattan. New York City is driving Winter’s father slowly mad. Winter’s sister wears Chanel and longs for a Fairy Court she’s never seen. And Winter’s mentor is a talking mouse.

Winter wants to save the world. 

When he discovers an unlikely changeling lost in the subway, Winter realizes he’s been given a chance to finally banish the Host, and maybe even save his family. But the changeling isn’t quite what she seems, and Winter’s already unstable world begins to spiral out of control.


Winter is a fresh and unique fantasy, that it just feels refreshing to read it.  Yeah, it's dark, but I loved the way it stood out of the thousands of other fantasy books.

Winter is fey, who along with many others, have been banished from the fey court.  So, now they live among humans and try not to go mad in the world so full of iron.  Winter also mistakenly unleashes a dangerous species into this world.  It's his duty to save the world from it, while finding a way into the Fairy Court.  He lives in a tunnel in D.C. Metro, along with Lolo and Richard, who help him guard the city.  Things take a turn, when Winter finds a girl in the wall, who has been from the Fairy Court.

The writing is beautiful, dark and mesmerizing.  The alternating POVs only just made the story all the more interesting.  The unique plot and engaging characters will attract the readers.  Every character has some dark secrets and the thing is the author has made it interesting enough to care about all of them.

My only complaint is although the book is very big, I felt like I knew very few things answered when it ended.  I agree this is a series and there may be more explanation in the coming books.  But, some details would have satisfied me.

Anyway, I can't wait to get my hands on the second book.  Definitely recommended for fantasy lovers!


About the Author:

In 1994 Sarah Remy earned a BA in English Literature and Creative Writing from Pomona College in California. Since then she’s been employed as a receptionist at a high-powered brokerage firm, managed a boutique bookstore, read television scripts for a small production company, and, more recently, worked playground duty at the local elementary school.

When she’s not taking the service industry by storm, she’s writing fantasy and science fiction. Sarah likes her fantasy worlds gritty, her characters diverse and fallible, and she doesn’t believe every protagonist deserves a happy ending.

Before joining the Harper Voyager family, she published with EDGE, Reuts, and Madison Place Press.

Sarah lives in Washington State with plenty of animals and people, both. In her limited spare time she rides horses, rehabs her old home, and supervises a chaotic household. She can talk to you endlessly about Sherlock Holmes, World of Warcraft, and backyard chicken husbandry, and she’s been a member of one of Robin Hobb’s longest-running online fan clubs since 2002.
