A Wolf on the hunt...
Wulfgar Hahn, better known as the Wolf of Braugne, is a man on a mission. Determined to avenge the murder of his brother, he stops at Camaeline Abbey to meet with the Chosen of Camael, goddess of the Hearth. Unfortunately, it appears the Chosen wants nothing to do with him.
A leader in disguise...
Captivated by the Wolf of Braugne despite herself, Lily poses as an unassuming priestess in order to learn more about this ruthless man.

As war looms on the horizon, passion sparks between them, but an enduring relationship between a soldier on the march and a leader who reveres hearth and home is impossible—or is it? Among the swirling snows of the winter Masque, the gods and goddesses of the Elder Races dance, and love will find a way...

Great Novella with Good Romance and Worldbuilding
I loved Ms. Thea Harrison’s The Chosen in Amid the Winter Snow. If you’ve read her other series, this one is set entirely in the Elder Realms. If you haven’t read any of her books, don’t worry, this story stands alone. The world building was great. With most short stories, I have to set aside my initial resistance with the quick relationships. In The Chosen, both characters have such a strong sense of self that it worked out well and I was swept along. Highly recommend if you are looking for a romance, good worldbuilding, set in a winter landscape.
An interesting read...
A woman lured as a child to a new world by a goddess and destined to lead her people to their future meets a man forced into a leadership role by tragedy and perceived as a villain. Set in a world loosely connected to the Elder Races series, The Chosen, captured my interest and made me want to delve deeper into the story.
To be honest, the Elder Races connection was not immediately obvious and I unsure about what I should expect from the book. Thankfully, I approached it with an open mind and found that Thea Harrison had penned yet another wonderful story.
The main character’s romance was sweet and quirky given that each character was from very different backgrounds. The story will appeal to fans of the Elder Races series and anyone that likes Thea Harrison’s works.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Loved the characters!
I loved this book! Even though it was short it was very well thought out and didn't seem rushed like I often find novellas are. I loved both the lead characters and enjoyed their chemistry, but I especially liked Lily, the female lead. She was both strong and independent yet vulnerable in ways that made her relatable and interesting to read about. You don't HAVE to have read the previous Elder Races books to read this one, however this novella did provide insight to a facet of the Elder Races that had not yet been explored in the previous books which I enjoyed. One of my favorite novellas in the series so far!
