The storyline is captivating, one unpredicted twist after another, it keeps you wondering what’s next. In a book with so main characters out of the box, a bold female lead outstands. Nora is a strong fearless girl (in an Arya stark way of awesomeness) while Owen is a boy who’s not that much into weapons as he is into books.
When I started reading ‘Touch of Iron’ I couldn’t predict the turn the storyline would take. I didn’t expect the characters to evolve and change so dramatically after finding themselves bogged down in an ominous and menacing situation. What started as a Young Adult fantasy story ended as a dark, epic and edgy story, with unexpected twists and unpredictable premise, written masterfully, flawlessly.
Very impressive for a first-time author and I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
I can't wait to see what comes next for Noraya Smith
The structure and character arcs remind me of Abercrombie's The First Law and, maybe moreso, The Shattered Sea trilogies, as does the head-on description of violence, gore and gritty life with a sword. It also feels a little like Anthony Ryan's Blood Song. This is no Lord Grimdark or Ryan ripoff, though, but a unique work all it's own.
The variety and authenticity of characters is what fascinates me most, I think. And Telen Diaz. Damn. A warrior monk of sorts, a half-wight with a dark and secret past, he's got to be one of the most memorable characters in fantasy for me now. Kind of Sigrud from Robert J. Bennett's City of Stairs (The Divine Cities series) crossed with Dimitri Belikov from Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy (yes I read those shut up).
There aren't enough women writing grimdark fantasy, but I'm really glad Whitecastle is among them. Look out you Anna Smiths ;)
Shockingly brutal and beautiful, wonderful grimdark fantasy. Read this. Yes.
It all starts with Nora in order to escape the clutches of a drunken step father she persuades her twin brother to run away.
Nora and her brother reluctantly part ways believing she will be safer back at the village, rather than travelling with a group of over friendly men. Nora takes charge of her situation but keeps stepping into dark and dangerous situations.
Luckily Nora is not afraid of fighting for survival.
I found the constant attacking of the women hard to read, Nora's strong character kept me intrigued, but the men in the book did very little to hold my interest.
I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.
