    A lot of Fun. A little silly. And also a little ...dark. In this we meet Keeley Smythe our heroine. She is a blacksmith who hails from a very, very large farming/blacksmithing family. She lives in a small village with her mother, father, 11 siblings and her crazy pit fighting cousin...

    I'm a bit wobbly on my rating for this one but settling on 2 stars. I didn't particularly enjoy the dialogue, especially in the prologue. The conversation between Marius and his mother Maila was supposed to show their cunning and cruelty, but it just made me roll my eyes. Unfortunately...

    Rating ~3.5 A fun, easy to read, fantasy with all your favorite mythical creatures. Dragons, elves, dwarves, and centaurs, oh my! Keely is not your typical heroine. What with her muscles, broad shoulders and propensity to help anyone and anything in need. Not because she's naive...

    FELT LIKE A CARICATURE OF A FANTASY NOVEL - AND A BAD ONE AT THAT Actual rating: 1.5? I read a lot of fantasy. It was the genre that first made me fall in love with reading. So I might be a bit biased. This book seemed to make a joke of the fantasy genre and that really bothere...

    I love books by G.A. Aiken and/aka Shelly Laurenston, so I find myself with an ARC copy of The Blacksmith Queen, G.A. Aiken?s new series and I had to jump right into it. What an amazing rollercoaster of angsty family and friend bi-play, strong emotional ties, and some outstanding wor...

    This book is SO much fun. There's a minor romantic element to it and otherwise is all of the badass women you can handle in a fun fantasy setting. Not f/f like my usual reading, but I'm so glad I read it. ...

    I couldn?t put this novel down. I love her Dragon Kin series and this had some of the same undertones with the outrageous characters, snarky, humor, and great world building. I can?t wait for the next book. Full review to come Rated: 5 Stars ...

    I want more...NOW!! The funny thing about listening to audiobooks is that you can lose track of where you're at. When you hold a book in your hand, you can see how many pages are left. You know by how many pages are left whether you're going to get a rushed ending or, heaven forbid,...

    The great king had barely taken his last breath before one brother took the head of another. With that sentence I was hooked and boy did it get bloody fast. The Old King is dead and his sons are fighting for the crown and they are brutal, cruel and have no mercy. Keeley is o...

    When I choose to pick up a book by this author no matter what name she uses I know it's going to be a wild and hilarious ride. So discovering this is set within her Dragon Kin world had me positively salivating ! Does she include a Dragon I wondered and oo is this author sneaky because...

    Shelly Laurenston... where have you been all my life? You gave me a story I could REALLY sink my teeth into. The Blacksmith Queen is full of non-stop action mixed in with colorful characters, witty banter, obnoxious silly fun, hilarious hijinks, and plenty of OTT moments to leave me qu...

    This was totally my jam! What a fun book. I just recently learned that G.A. Aiken is another penname for Shelly Laurenston, so I was thrilled to dive into this book. It had everything I know this author provides. Her specialty in that quirky sense of humor she has, as well as an en...

    ARC provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review I hate using the word 'disappointment' for a book (I don't know why) but this was a disappointment. One thing that matters a lot to me about a book is the dialogues. The dialogues were just so... bleh. I mean honestly they...
