“Electrically fun…turns the usual fairy-tale class dynamics upside down…this is a book that encourages trust in people’s goodness, if not their patience or good sense. It’s light on the romance, but prodigiously good for the heart.”
—The New York Times
In New York Times bestselling author G.A. Aiken’s gripping new fantasy romance series, the Blacksmith Queen must confront armies and pretenders desperate to take her new-won crown. But with the Princess Knight at her side and a centaur warrior clan at her back, she’ll risk everything for victory . . .
LONG LIVE THE QUEEN
Gemma Smythe dedicated her life to the glory of battle. With her fellow War Monks, she worshipped the war gods, rained destruction on her enemies, and raised the dead when the fancy took her. Until her sister Keeley became the prophesied Blacksmith Queen, and Gemma broke faith with her order to journey to the Amichai Mountain and fight by Keeley’s side.
The Amichai warriors are an unruly, never-to-be-tamed lot, especially their leader-in-waiting, Quinn. But when the War Monks declare support for Gemma’s ruthless younger sister Beatrix, the immaturity of her key ally is the least of Gemma’s problems. She has to get to the grand masters, dispel their grudge against her, and persuade them to fight for Keeley and justice. If her conviction can’t sway them, perhaps Quinn’s irritating, irreverent, clearly unhinged, ferocity will win the day . . .
I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.
Gemma a Warmonk and now The Princess Knight, because her Sister Keeley who is now The Blacksmith Queen. Well,kind of, sort of the Queen. She is one of two that can be the new Queen. Her sister Beatrix is the other who can be Queen, one problem, she is soullessand therefore must be stopped at all cost. Even if they have to kill her. Beatrix is up to something and they have no clue of what it is. Monks are coming up dead and thier whole orders decimated and any artifacts taken. Gemma is then paired up with the Amichais warriors, Quin of the Centaurs to be exact. Thier bannter between each other is laugh out loud funny sometimes. I could not get enough of them. At the end we get a little suprise when someone shows up. That is when shit is about to get real. I cannot wait until the next book in the series is released.
I give The Princess Knight 5/5 stars.
