    Description

    Maeve of Carn is a warrior of warriors, but she’s no hero. Born with superhuman strength, she sells her abilities to mercenaries and warlords in exchange for wealth. 

    Until the night of the full moon.

    In the midst of a raid, led by the warlord she just might be falling in love with, Maeve is taken by the Dark Fae.

    After leaving her to rot in the dungeon of the damned, they offer her a deal. Freedom. If she finds a divine relic rumored to have the power to break all curses. Left with no other choice, Maeve sets off on a perilous quest, guided by the Scholar.

    This book definitely packs a punch

    Pawn by Angela J. Ford was such a wild ride! It has a great world-building, though definitely on the dark side, and a heroine who is thrust into a quest by the Fae thanks to their holding over her her own freedom. Much of the story is full of action but also intrigue, since Maeve's companion, Sandrine the Scholar, is not so forthcoming with the knowledge she has.

    As for the narrator, she certainly did a great job differentiating the voices of all the characters (and there are many since there are a couple of chapters that are even from a different POV) and bringing this story to life. However, I think there's room for improvement, especially with some slighter nuances, such as whispers, or when displaying certain emotions.

    This book definitely packs a punch and has something to appeal to many: from magic/sorcery to sword skills and battles, from intrigue and a prophecy to hints of romance, lovers of Fantasy will definitely enjoy this new series.

    Content: since the world is dark and the heroine has made a living with her sword skills, the violence levels in this book are bound to be high. I know for some this won't bother them, but for me, the descriptions were at times too strong (or even visceral). Also, it must be noted that there's a couple of times where, when describing female characters, the word "breasts" is mentioned, and one of those times going into even further detail (since said character is wearing very thin clothing, leaving nothing to the imagination). ~ 4 stars

    Think Lord or the Ringsesque with One BadA*s Female Warrior!

    I remember when I was a little girl, Lord of the Rings was the first big book I ever read. Now granted my dad helped me with this! My dad would sit in between my brother’s and my bedrooms before bed and we would sit with him. He would scroll his finger across the words so we could learn how to read. It was wonderful! This book is the start of one of my new favorite series! It was awesome! Great plot twists, just enough info on all the different types of beings to paint a solid picture of the domains and make me want to see more! Maeve of Carn is a dynamo! She is a force! The flow of the book was great for laying the foundation for the books to come! Angela Ford is a writing wizard! So excited for book #2!

    whoever gave this book a 4 star is a lied

    The book is basic and nothing stands out for me, definitely will not continue with this series. There is no character development and the story seems rushed and parts are missing like I would have like th story to begin when she was with rhw Warlord so the story can develop and help us understand Maeve better. Maeve comes off as really naive as if she wasn't a mercenary who murdered and killed people before being captured. The Character the author was trying to portray is not the character that was delivered to us.

    Maeve is a bit like Wonder Woman

    This book was amazing. I listened to the whole book in 2.5 days. I didn't want to stop listening. The characters each have distinct personalities. The plot flows along well. There is a lot of action. I'd recommend this book to those looking for a Fae fantasy book with magic and dragons. The main character, Maeve is not exactly a good person but she isn't evil either. She dresses like Wonder Woman and she is strong like Wonder Woman. She is also confident. I look forward to the next book.
     
    Maeve has come to realize that the bad predicament that she has found herself in is of her own making. The Fae don't have any control over those who don’t harm innocents. Even with that knowledge, she is not yet ready to change. She is desperate for her freedom from the Fae. This book has twists and turns. The characters have secrets. We learn some of those secrets in this first book.
     
    The narrator did a great job. Her voice fluctuates and is appealing to the ear. It is easy to differentiate among the characters that she is portraying.

    Excited for the next one!

    I'm invested in Ford's Legend of the Nameless One series, so I thought I'd check out what else she's done. I think the beginning of this series shows even more promise than the first book in the Nameless One saga, and I'm excited to see where she goes from here.

    It's an absolutely wild and creative through fantasy tropes old and new. There's dragons, fae, wizards, and warriors, but also creative stuff like haunted seas, giant eels, and weirdly all-knowing goblin queens. And of course, questions about character's intentions and pasts, some which are answered in this book and others that are saved for later.

    The narrator is absolutely pitch-perfect, capturing all the nuances of Maeve and her situation. She takes us through her inner darkness and growing desire to be something better with great acumen. I love Maeve's bloodthirsty nature but I also love her dawning realization of the evil she's caused in the world, the lives she's impacted for the worst.

    Just a quick note, but this is the type of redemption story that relies on the idea of religion as a force for change. It's not Maeve's only reason to want to change, but the idea of a god, called "The Divine" that stands in judgment of all is a significant reason she's seeking redemption. I note this because I know that's not for everyone; I was actually a little disappointed by that myself, but not enough to squelch my enjoyment of the story.

    I have the second book in the series and plan to start it soon. I want to know what happens next!

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    An adventure

    I had not heard of this book or this author but had the opportunity to get the audiobook in exchange for my honest review. I was hooked from the first chapter and I will be reading the rest of the trilogy to see what happens. I thought the author did a great job of creating a rich fantasy world filled with dragons, Fae, goblins, magic and more. The narrator did a good job bringing the characters to life. I would recommend this book and I’ll be looking for more from this author.

    Fantasy at its best

    Angela. has a talent for making her stories come alive! This is no exception as her narrator, Racquel, has an excellent voice that she uses to show the emotions of the characters along with listener being able to distinguish which characters are talking.
    I can’t wait to listen to the next installment in this trilogy.
