Blurb for The Blacksmith Queen

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 bestselling 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 …



This is first book in The Scarred Earth saga. This was an excellent first book. Once I started reading I couldn’t put it down. I’m excited to read the next installment to this series.

The Blacksmith Queen is the story of Keeley of the Smythe clan. She is a blacksmith just like her mother was. She is extremely strong and cares deeply for her family and for all creatures.

The Blacksmith Queen follows Keeley. This is the story of her and how her life changes in a blink of eye. Through the story Keeley also finds the love of her life.

The story contains demon wolves, centaurs, dwarves, elves, and dragons. It also has a medevil setting. There is plenty of action and a slow building romance.

The Blacksmith Queen is an awesome read and I couldn’t put it down till I finished it. I’m excited to read the next installment to The Scarred Earth saga.

Do I Recommend?

I would recommend this series to anyone that enjoy fantasy with plenty of action and a slow building romance.

My Rating:   5 out of 5 stars (A)
