Blacksmith Queen by G.A. Aiken

Another ARC review! I was lucky enough to get this beautiful copy and dove right into it.

I loved every single word of this book. Literally I could not stop reading it. I have a new addition when it comes to this author and I cannot wait to read more. This author's writing reminded me of Scarlett dawn. I laughed as much as I was enthralled with the world and the characters. This world has an absolute TON of species and the plot to fit them all. Literally I could read another 15 books in this series. I mean, this book as dark, it was gory and in the end, it IS a war guys. But it was amazing. I loved reading this from the start to the end. I cannot wait for another book in this series because it is going to be amazing to go deeper into this world. This gave me all the high fantasy feels and I am excited to see where this plot goes!
