This is the second book in the Scarred Earth Saga
Long Live The Queen
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, Gemma broke faith with her order to journey to the Amichai Mountian 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…
The Princess Knight is a great book and a great continuation to The Blacksmith Queen.
The Princess Knight follows Gemma, a War Monk that has dedicated her life to a War God, Morthwyl. One of their powers is raising the dead. She has vigorously trained and fought for her God. I liked seeing what happens from her perspective.
I really liked seeing the storyline be built upon from The Blacksmith Queen throughout The Princess Knight. While this book is focused on Gemma, Keeley is still the main character. However I really enjoyed reading about Gemma as well as from Quinn’s perspective.
I loved Gemma as a character and loved seeing the relationship between Quinn and Gemma. As well as the family dynamic and why it is what it is from what we read in The Blacksmith Queen.
The characters that were introduced in The Princess Knight was great and I cant wait to see what happens throughout the series.
I loved diving back into this incredible world and I will definitely have to start reading G.A Aiken’s original series.
Overall I really enjoyed reading The Princess Knight and I can’t wait to read the next book.
