Cover reveal: Winter Queen (Fairy Queens, Book One) by Amber Argyle

The covers for author Amber Argyle's Witch Song series are absolutely gorgeous and I didn't think they could be topped. I was wrong. Below is the cover of her latest series, Fairy Queens, and this is BEAUTIFUL! The colors, the sky, the fairies around the fairy queen, the queen herself, those wings--wow! This is a major case of insta-book cover love.

Becoming a winter queen will make Ilyenna as cold and cruel and deadly as winter itself, but it might be the only way to save her people from a war they have no hope of winning.~

Mortally wounded during a raid, seventeen-year-old Ilyenna is healed by winter fairies who present her with a seductive offer: become one of them and share their power over winter. But that power comes with a price. If she accepts, she will become a force of nature, lose her humanity, and abandon her family.

Unwilling to pay such a high price, Ilyenna is enslaved by the one of the invaders, Darrien. While in captivity, she learns the attack wasn’t just a simple raid but part of a larger plot to overthrow her entire nation. 

With the enemy stealing over the mountains and Darrien coming to take her to his bed, Ilyenna must decide whether to resurrect the power the fairies left behind. Doing so will allow her to defeat Darrien and the other invaders, but if she embraces winter, she will lose herself to that destroying power—forever.

Name the characters!
Also, you have the opportunity to name two characters-the fairies on the back cover and the front flap-from the last book in the series (Daughter of Winter). The author will choose her favorites sometime next week. To participate, leave your favorite names in the comments of the following posts:
