“She was raised to hunt faeries. He was raised from the dead.”
Intriguing, isn’t it? That’s the tag line for Samantha Warren’s latest novel, The Iron Locket. I was fortunate enough to be a beta reader for this book and I loved it. Very rarely do I get sucked into a book enough that I dream about it but I did this one.
For two straight nights, I dreamed about knights, faeries, and being sucked into portals. It was crazy!
But enough about my overly active imagination, let’s talk about this story.
I am a huge King Arthur fan, so when Samantha told me about this book – I knew I had to read it. This isn’t your typical story of Arthur and his most trusted knights battling it out in medieval times. On the contrary, it’s set in the present and the king and his crew have to do a little adjusting to modern-day ways. Especially when dealing with the Faery Queens.
I was a little leery about the faeries, I’ll admit. But then I found out the main character, Aiofe, hunts rogue faeries that enter the human world. How freaking cool is that? Seriously, that is my new costume for Halloween!
So, now I’ve got a Faery Hunter and an Ancient King, all rolled up in one book. And the bad guys? Oh, they are sooo bad – you’ll love them. This book brings you into the land of Faery and has you roaming around castles, fighting alongside the Knights of the Round Table and mingling with the Four Faery Queens.
And the ending… well, you’ll just have to read it to find out!
Here’s the description:
She was raised to hunt faeries. He was raised from the dead.
Aiofe Callaghan comes from a long line of faery hunters. Hired by one of the faery queens, they protect the human world from chaos and destruction. But when Aiofe stumbles through an open door into the land of Faery, she discovers the job isn’t as simple as it seems, and neither is she.
Arthur Pendragon spent centuries in blissful nothingness, until the day the four queens banded together to raise him from the dead. Along with his twelve most talented knights, he leads the warring armies of Faery against the greatest enemy they have ever known: one of their own.
Can they overcome their differences to confront the greatest challenges either of them have ever faced?
