Publisher's Summary

When retired Erdemen army officer Kemen Sendoa helped the young Prince Hakan Ithel reclaim his throne, he thought he was happy. He had shaped the future of his beloved country and earned a place of honor and respect.  

In the shelter of the palace, he finds peace and the promise of a life he’d only imagined. Yet his own choices and brewing border troubles may force him to make a final sacrifice.  

A tale of love, honor, and forgiveness, A Cold Wind follows The King’s Sword in the Erdemen Honor series.

The narrator has a lovely voice.

I found the different time periods a little confusing but it didn't matter too much as the romance was the main thread of the story and it felt like Kemen's journey was more of a sideline.

Enjoyable 2nd book in the Erdemen Honor series

This story continues the saga of Kemen Sendoa, but is more of a slow burn romance, though there is plenty of action later on. The author, and the narrator of the audiobook, do a great job of showing the differences, uncertainties and confusions between the different cultures and sexes. They also highlights the struggles of the protagonist and how those challenges shape who he is. This story has strategy, action, adventure, loyalty and love. It is an enjoyable story that leaves you wanting to hear more.

Solid story line

I enjoyed this although, at times, the dialogue seemed to take its time getting to the next point. There were also technical difficulties with the recording, the narrator at several points seemed to be recording while in a barrel! Otherwise, the narrator was very good.

A noble bright fantasy

I love this series and grabbed this audio-book as soon as I learned it was available - which shows that my self-restraint needs work but also how much I was looking forward to this edition.
This is the second book of the trilogy so you'll want to start with 'The King's Sword.
Enjoy!

A Cold Wind Warms your Heart

4.5
I loved the first book. The sequel was equally deep and charming, however I noticed the present/past tense mixed in singular sentences more and really could do without it. It pulled from the story or foretold of a foreboding that would be best developing on its own.

My other irk was a few consistencies. Like how could volunteer fighters get docked a week’s pay? In one chapter, Kemen narrates he preferred setting up his own tent (but couldn’t because of an injury) then later, gloats having others do it was a perk because of his rank.

Overall, I love our new king. I love Kemen. His new love interest had a slow burn and the relationship is completely based on getting to know someone. My heart ached that the prologue did not include their wedding.

Full of love, loyalty, and the discomfort when either are out of reach or misunderstood.

I REALLY hope the third book is released soon. I want to see more of how Kemen completes his healing and mentors another upcoming king.

This narrator is phenomenal. I was captivated each night as I listened to his read A Cold Wind - and I only caught any of my frustrations as I mulled over it during the day, eager to listen again!
