The Ilyon Chronicles
About Bitter Winter
Already struggling with a harsh winter and the threat of food shortage, a catastrophic event leaves those in the Landale camps reeling. Just when things couldn’t get much worse, camp members fall ill with the same devastating sickness that’s sweeping across the country.
Determined to gain the cure, Jace sets off to Valcré. However, there are only two sources—the queen, or a powerful gang of smugglers who have made the dangerous city their home. When Jace gains audience with the gang leader, he finds the price of the cure is steeper than any of them imagined, forcing him to make an impossible choice—betray his conscience or let those he loves die.

The last thing Aaron ever envisioned was falling for a prostitute. Everything about it spells trouble. However, he can’t help noticing the way her smile lights up when she sees him and how much brokenness she hides behind it. Neither can he ignore how desperately she needs rescue and protection.
When Lacy shares a life or death secret with him, Aaron is willing to risk everything to help her and to show her Elôm’s love. Yet, such a choice could destroy his reputation and maybe even cost him his freedom.

Book Review – Lacy
I was really curious about this book because just from the description, you know it deals with some sensitive topics. As an author who has also written books on said topics, I wanted to see how Jaye dealt with it.
I was impressed! Not only did the story capture my attention, but the characters were awesome! I really liked the way the characters acted and Aaron! I can’t say more on that, because of spoilers, so go get the book.
The parts about Lacy’s profession were very appropriate and I can definitely say that it could be read by anybody who has read the rest of the Ilyon books.
