And omance in close uarters is so high Speaking ofThe Badish and Everything in BetweenThis is all about personal preference I m a self professed omance junkie It s the thing that lures me in and keeps me hooked to a series The omance in this story is NOT the focal point but incidental If you are looking for a strong omance element to the story this may not be for you Personally the story itself is intriguing enough to keep me interested but the lack of omance is the only thing that I wish I had of Now I loathe cliffhangers it is no secret but I do not mind an unfinished type of ending in a fantasy series which is what this is I was happy with the way things end because it s not a sharp cliffhanger that would make me throw my kindle It gave me a sense of esolution for this chapter of the story and left me wanting That s all I ask forYes I loved this I eally enjoyed the fantasy elements the humor and the strong action in this story The dash of omance was nice even if I wanted of it While I feel there is an ending of sorts it is clearly only the beginning of this series and I can tell you now I m all in for this bumpy ide If you like fantasy series you may enjoy this I definitely didARC provided by publisher via netgalley for eviewFor eviews visit 2 unroyal This book is for you if you find dialogue driven and silly new adult fantasy novels appealing PrefaceAnybody checking out my updates on this book should know I tracked this book a while ago already on here and then ealized that what I was actually fawning over was this Realm of Knights fantastic NetGalley ead EDIT I just found out GA Aiken has a dog on her profile and now I m crushed I don t love her book Dog people unite Overall What the fuck he muttered to the mare behind him did I just see Same bro same This book was idiculous and not in a good wayI had a hard time getting into this and the plot felt very forced and ungenuine At one point I told somebody else that this book comes across like the dialogue driven mocktail version of a proper original I didn t know of yet I didn t notice how heavily G A elied on dialogue and that it seriously messed with the uality of this novel until another eviewer on here pointed it out It hits the nail ight on the head though Not only was there too much dialogue but it was also very bad and silly What could have been a humorous book just felt forced and annoying ight around 25% In general there are some eally funny lines in there but the overuse just makes it bland and exhausting uinn stopped bellowing and looked at Keeley Yes my lady he asked calmly Your brother said to pull back But he s not my ueen I was also very disappointed that the author depicted all of the female characters she deemed powerful and ighteous as violent warriorsblacksmiths I notice and appreciate trying to give a wider ange of powerful women oles to the eadership it s great but this did not turn out well While the villains all seemed like intelligent and esourceful vicious ladies the good characters just pulled their axes to call it a day I agree that physically strong women with visible muscles and all are important MY exboyfriend.

Is one of these petty creatures stating women shouldn t have six packs because it s not feminine all the while sporting a beer belly himself facepalmIf the overall tone of the book went a little bit like the following instead of just smashing heads left and ight that would have been great But the thought of human men telling me what to do set my teeth on edge so you know As a human woman I have to admit I feel the same way What s happening The great king had barely taken his last breath before one brother took the head of another And this is when a wild and merciless ace is kicked off The witches have prophesied a new ueen and the brothers will do everything to either kill her or instrumentalize her Keeley will not let her sister be the puppet or murder victim of a bunch of entitled tosspots but that is not uite as easy said as done Con several oyal brothers all of them hostile and uthless traitor sister is super annoying family can t stay serious for half a minutePro sexy new allies in the form of changeling creatures dire wolfs and wild horses totally kick ass many shiny weapons and powerful women wielding them Writing uality easy of eading 2 pace 2 plot development 2 characters 2 enjoyability 2 insightfulness 2 it is possible to mess up strong female characters This eArc was provided by Kensington Books via NetGalley in exchange for an honest eview Thank you very much This was totally my jam What a fun book I just ecently learned that GA Aiken is another penname for Shelly Laurenston so I was thrilled to di 59194 stars This was bloody and gory and fantastic Keeley Smythe was a great heroine and one that I will love following Her and her family made for some very entertaining eading Shelly LaurenstonGAAiken keeps faithful to her formula with multiple POVs and uirky charactersThe book takes place in the same world as her Dragon Kin series and I loved the way SLGAA connected the two The introductions of Centaurs Elves and Dwarves made me feel like I fell head first in a fun and gory version of Lord of the RingsThe only thing that let me down was the omance aspect The author paired the chaotic strong Keeley with the grumpy sour faced Caid which is her usual formula but I didn t feel any chemistry or heat or major attraction between them The sex just felt like an afterthought towards the end of the book just to oundup all the bases Other than that I loved the plot and the characters and cannot wait to ead the next one 15619Loving the premise of this A prophesy that a ueen will ascend to the throne fierce warriors that are eally Centaurs a badass female blacksmith protecting her family and an excerpt that makes me wanna ead What else could I want Oh yeah this book in my libraryright this minute ARC provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest eviewI 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 kind of felt childish considering the MC is above 20 I m not even sure what her age is tbhI eally wanted to like this but unfortunately I did no. 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 ough gruff Caid actually seems to espect her A good thing because the fierce warrior will be by her side for a much longer ide than any prophesy ever envisioned .
