Description

When a prophesy brings war to the Land of the Black Hills, Keeley Smythe must join forces with a clan of mountain warriors who are really centaurs in a thrilling new fantasy romance series from New York Times best-selling author G.A. Aiken. 

The Old King Is Dead

With the demise of the Old King, there's a prophesy that a queen will ascend to the throne of the Black Hills. Bad news for the king's sons, who are prepared to defend their birthright against all comers. But for blacksmith Keeley Smythe, war is great for business. Until it looks like the chosen queen will be Beatrix, her younger sister. Now it's all Keeley can do to protect her family from the enraged royals. 

Luckily, Keeley doesn't have to fight alone. Because thundering to her aid comes a clan of kilt-wearing mountain warriors called the Amichai. Not the most socially adept group, but soldiers have never bothered Keeley, and rough, gruff Caid, actually seems to respect her. A good thing because the fierce warrior will be by her side for a much longer ride than any prophesy ever envisioned.

Very entertaining!

The Blacksmith Queen is a very entertaining tale about a change in leadership; how some will stoop low to fill their greed; and how good & honorable leaders put others first. The story is fast paced with non-stop action, with many surprises, & unpredictable twists. The slow relationship build between the queen and her man is well executed. Keeley Smythe and family provide hours of sarcastic bantering that is hands down laugh out loud funny. The characters are flawed, believable, realistic, & likable. Absolutely looking forward to book 2. Well done Ms. Aiken, well done! #TheBlacksmithQueen

Expected More

From the reviews I read, I expected more of a story. I feel like so much more could have been done with the book, but it was just the bare bones of the story. The story was told mostly through dialogue, which I wasn't a huge fan of in this book. The characters were well made and consistent, but my biggest thing was there wasn't much story telling. There was so much potential and I feel like a great story was lost.

The other thing was that the narrator was so slow. I had to speed it up to keep the story going along.

Overall, the book was just okay.

Didn’t work for me

I love most fantasy; it certainly does not need to be highbrow for me to enjoy a story.. but this was DEFINITELY a wasted credit. I lasted about 30 minutes. Did not find it funny at all. Banter was juvenile. Third person unlimited (ie switching POV so fast you can get whiplash) runs the risk of sounding similarly juvenile, especially where romance is concerned. I don’t want to know everyone’s thoughts on each other’s appearance in real time...it ends up being tedious, rather than humorous or insightful.

dat centaur porn tho

Didnt do my research first. Didnt expect the centaur porn. I think overall the story wasnt bad. Honestly think it would have read better in my head. The performance tried but ultimately failed and it ruined any humor or romance this book tried to have.

otherwise it was a fun adventure to listen to falling to sleep or doing chores.

Less Romance, More Fantasy Epic

Awesome characters, great story, but barely a dash of romance and the main male interest was possibly the least interesting character...but another great entry in the Aikenverse!

Where is the romance???

I love my dragon kin series and was so hoping for that again and all of aiken/Laurenston books but it's not here. The story is good and I was there for the long haul but absolutely no romance and I read for this. Good story and great characters but I am 😥

Nothing like her Dragon kin series

Im disappointed. I really love the Dragon Kin series. Overall, this story was boring. The characters were lackluster, uninteresting and unbelievable.

Brilliant

I really enjoyed this book and I didn't want it to end. There were all of the usual sword and sorcery tropes but they were twisted into something much more interesting. I can't wait for the next book.

well worth the wait

I preordered this book a month ago. The story is exciting, adventurous, and hilarious. the dragonkin series will tie in nicely with this new series, and I look forward to seeing what happens with Jemma, Layla, and especially, drunk Kieran.

Hilarious

Ich konnte das Hörbuch nicht mehr ausschalten. die Geschichte war einfach Spitze. Ich kennen ja einige Bücher der Autorin und bin wie immer begeistert. Die Sprecherin hat es hervorragend gelesen. manche Situationen sind einfach zum totlachen.

I want more :)

Ein weiter Roman von der Weld unter den beiden Sonnen, nur diesmal von einer ganz anderen Perspektive. Neue Charaktere, neuer Ort, neue Probleme.
G. A. Aiken beweist hier wider einmal Ihre Kreativität und Humor ich kann kaum erwarten fas die Fortsetzung erscheint.
