"I've been alive for less than a year, but it's been nothing but trouble. I was born to be someone I'm not, created by a lonely Goddess in the image of a random man she met at a party. No wonder it didn't work out. What I have to decide now is how I want to spend the last few days of my life."
Beira, the Mother of Gods and Queen of Winter, has grown tired and lonely. After millennia of living on her own, she decides it's time to create the perfect lover. But while Colan might look like the man of her dreams, he's not falling in love with her as she'd planned. Can she change his mind or has it all been for nothing?
This tragic prequel to the bestselling novel Winter Princess tells the story of Wynter's parents. It's a stand-alone novella that can be enjoyed without having read the other books in the Daughter of Winter series.

I first read this book in the Breaking the Myth anthology. This is the story of the parents of Wynter (from the Daughter of Wynter series). Beira is the mother of the Gods and is lonely. She creates Colan, but he has a little bit more free will than she was expecting. I like that Colan pushes Beira out of her comfort zone. This is a beautiful but bittersweet story.
Beira is the mother of the gods, and the queen of winter. I love winter and I love gods like Greek and Egypt, I really loved this story. Should totally read it
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
