Book Review for A Taste of gold and iron by Alexandra Rowland


Kadou, the shy prince of Arasht, finds himself at odds with one of the most powerful ambassadors at court—the body-father of the queen’s new child—in an altercation which results in his humiliation.

To prove his loyalty to the queen, his sister, Kadou takes responsibility for the investigation of a break-in at one of their guilds, with the help of his newly appointed bodyguard, the coldly handsome Evemer, who seems to tolerate him at best. In Arasht, where princes can touch-taste precious metals with their fingers and myth runs side by side with history, counterfeiting is heresy, and the conspiracy they discover could cripple the kingdom’s financial standing and bring about its ruin.

My Review;

So today is my spot on the blog tour and even though I haven’t finished the book in time to do a full review I wanted to still get something out which I can come back and complete when I’m finished. This book is everything you want in a fantasy, you have magic, violence, conspiracy and a kingdom.

There is one quote in the book which has really reasonated with me which goes “there is no such thing as a near failure. Either you succeed or you don’t. How close you come to either doesn’t matter at all. Those couple of sentences really hit home with me and will be repeated on a regular basis.

I absolutely love the slow building friendship between Evemer and Kadou and can’t wait to see what happens in the book. If you love fantasy novels I definitely recommend this one.

Thank you so much to Stephen from BlackCrowPress for letting me take part in the blog tour.
