The Princess Knight by G.A. Aiken

In New York Times bestselling author G.A. Aiken’s gripping new fantasy romance series, the Blacksmith Queen must confront armies and pretenders desperate to take her new-won crown. But with the Princess Knight at her side and a centaur warrior clan at her back, she’ll risk everything for victory . . .


Gemma Smythe dedicated her life to the glory of battle. With her fellow War Monks, she worshipped the war gods, rained destruction on her enemies, and raised the dead when the fancy took her. Until her sister Keeley became the prophesied Blacksmith Queen, and Gemma broke faith with her order to journey to the Amichai Mountain and fight by Keeley’s side.

The Amichai warriors are an unruly, never-to-be-tamed lot, especially their leader-in-waiting, Quinn. But when the War Monks declare support for Gemma’s ruthless younger sister Beatrix, the immaturity of her key ally is the least of Gemma’s problems. She has to get to the grand masters, dispel their grudge against her, and persuade them to fight for Keeley and justice. If her conviction can’t sway them, perhaps Quinn’s irritating, irreverent, clearly unhinged, ferocity will win the day . . .

Have I told you lately how happy I am to have found G.A. Aiken's books?

There is just so much to love:
🎔 amazing banter
🎔 unbelievably beautiful world-building
🎔 remarkable characters. Although this author is famous for character dumps, so many people to keep track of, I haven't had a problem with it yet.
🎔 so much humor... I can't begin to count the amount of times I laughed. The fact that I was able to bust a gut while the characters were slicing and dicing and decapitating people says it all.

I easily fell in love with The Blacksmith Queen and knew by the end of it that I needed to get my hands on the next book. The Princess Knight did not disappoint. If anything, it exceeded my expectations. I was still a huge fan of Keeley and Caid and the men and women who made up their families and armies, but this story was primarily about Gemma and Quinn and they kept me entertained well up to the final word.

As a war monk, Gemma has never had a problem with meting out death. And in her opinion, no one deserves to be run through with her blade more than her sister, Beatrix. Actually, she has no shortage of people she'd love to hurt and Quinn, in all his awesomeness, hasn't escaped her notice. However, Quinn's charm and his pursuit to grant her every wish slowly wins her over. He finds his way not only onto her greatest ally list, but into her heart. And why not? He was AMAZING!!

From the battle scenes, the many reveals, and the complexities of the characters, a lot was going on in this book. There was so much heartbreak, plenty of triumphs, and tons of heart. While they were able to finally quash a coup from a villainous foe, Beatrix is still alive and kicking to cause trouble and torment another day. The cliffhanger of this part of the story is insane, more drama is sure to come, and I need the next book pronto!
