Summary

Everything is dead or dying. How can anyone live in this atmosphere? They can’t. 
I can’t. 
Eli’ane is a dying planet. With a sun and moon that burn bright and hot like a furnace, the plants die, the red dirt amplifies the hard living. When the pickings are slim, the people do what they must to survive. 
Day after day Ellie is asked by her father if she had her vitamins. Her husbands Jack, Stone, and Jeremiah pester her about them as well. 
All her life she was of the mindset that the vitamins were for her own good. To protect her from the people of the planet. Ellie lives. They don’t. So why the exhaustion? Why does it seem that the more vitamins her father gives her, the more exhausted she becomes? What is wrong with her? Just what is she becoming? 
This is the third book in The Guardian of Life series from Kim Iverson, which blends Science Fiction and Fantasy, with a sprinkling of Horror.

    An epic new fantasy romance from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author C. L. Wilson 
    After three long years of war, starkly handsome Wynter Atrialan will have his vengeance on Summerlea's king by taking one of the man's beautiful, beloved daughters as his bride. But though peace is finally at hand, Wynter's battle with the Ice Heart, the dread power he embraced to avenge his brother's death, rages on. 
    Khamsin Coruscate, Princess of Summerlea and summoner of Storms, has spent her life exiled to the shadows of her father's palace. Reviled by her father, marriage to Wintercraig's icy king was supposed to be a terrible punishment, but instead offers Kham her first taste of freedom—and her first taste of overwhelming passion. 
    As fierce, indomitable Wynter weathers even Khamsin's wildest storms, surprising her with a tenderness she never expected, Kham wants more than Wynter's passion—she yearns for his love. But the power of the Ice Heart is growing, dangerous forces are gathering, and a devastating betrayal puts Khamsin and Wynter to the ultimate test.
