Fairy Queens: Books 1-4 (Fairy Queens Box Set) - Amber Argyle
It is really nice to have all the stories together in one set so that you can just go right on to the next book when you get done with one.

Of Ice and Snow
In this story we meet Otec, he is the son of the clan-chief and he is left behind after his father and brothers go off to fight when another village comes under attack. Things quickly spiral out of control and Otec finds himself in the position of having to be a leader in order to save the people he loves. There is a lot of action in this book, I mean A LOT, it is very exciting! I love the world that this author builds here and even though this isn't a very long book, there is so much story here and it does not feel rushed at all. I highly recommend this to anyone that enjoys a good clean fantasy book.

Winter Queen
In this story we meet Ilyenna, daughter of Otec from Of Ice and Snow. Ilyenna is a healer and clanmistress, so she is a very important figure in the clan. There has been an attack and the men leave to go help out the neighboring village. When they return there are many wounded and the town becomes flooded with injured from the other village. The danger makes it's way to Ilyenna's village and everything just sort of goes to hell from there. This story is A LOT darker and way more violent than Of Ice and Snow, but it is just as good, there is a ton of action. The ending kind of messed me up a little bit though, I can't decide if I liked it or not, but I am sure there is a reason for it because this author has built this incredible world and everything happens for a reason, so I am sure there was a point to that. I do recommend reading this book!

Of Fire and Ash
The first stories took place in a different part of land and this one takes place in basically the desert. In Of Fire and Ash, we meet Nelay. This girl has a rough life living in the desert where it is hard to find water for the sheep that she is trying to take care of. Her brother is mean to her and she can see fairies, but she has promised her mom to never let anyone know that she has the sight, especially not the fairies. Something happens to her father and without help he will die, so she makes the decision to ask the fairies for help, a decision that she later realizes had tragic consequences and made her understand why her mother made her promise not to acknowledge the fairies. Little did she know asking for that favor changed the entire course of her life forever. I love this Fairy Queens world!

Summer Queen
OH WOW! More of Nelay's story and boy is it is action packed! Nelay is older now and a total bad ass. I think that this one is my favorite so far and I LOVE that cover, I want to hang it on my wall as a poster. Nelay is so awesome, I just love her she has this snarky little attitude and she can kick some serious butt. There is so much that happens in this story and it all leads up to a major battle and it is EPIC! I don't want to give away any spoilers. OMG I can't wait to read the next books!!
