It’s hard to kill your enemies when you fall in love with them…
In her previous life, Shizuka-no-kami was a bride-to-be when she was murdered in cold blood by her betrothed to gain her dowry. Because she perished in the snow, the Snow Goddess fosters her spirit, turning her into a yuki-onna, a snow maiden.
When the Snow Goddess’ sacred domain is threatened with never-ending battles, Shizuka is sent to entice and kill the aggressor’s overlords; only, she isn’t prepared for what awaits her. Lord Hiraoka Ichizo and his second-in-command, Tenshin Satoru, decide to introduce her to carnal pleasure and share her between them. As Shizuka is torn from the overlords’ seduction, other trouble is brewing on the horizon.
This time, if Shizuka does not heed how dangerous lust for power really is, the tightly woven treachery might kill her for good.
Killed by her fiance, Shizuka-no-Kami is taken in by the Snow Goddess and sheltered in her sacred domain as a snow maiden. She is given a rare chance to return to human form temporarily in order to kill the overlords threatening the Snow Goddess’ territory. Before she can succeed in her mission, she find herself the guest of not one but two overlord warriors. Can this trinity survive the fight ahead? Or will Shizuka lose the men she loves?
First things first, I’m a huge fan of any sort of anime or manga in Japanese lore. Lady of the Snow put me in the mind set of a very, very hot feudal Japan. If you can’t take the heat, stay out of this kitchen, Ms. Lee turns up the steam to boiling point. Deep, evocative characters and sweeping imagery make this book one you need to read.
