A fairy tale kind of story with a light romance I was happy that the story picked up in the second half and I started to enjoy this than the first half So 3 stars it isThis story is set in the magical country of 17th century France where magic is feared and witches are burned but where the Fae and other magical creatures rule the forestJehan is a young fisherman with the ability to do magic But while his grandmother is telling him to develop these abilities and take over for her when she’s gone Jehan wants nothing to do with it Not everyone is fooled by Jehan and his denial about everything magic since Giraud the blacksmith’s son comes to Jehan for help Giraud knows Jehan can see all magical creatures because Giraud can see them tooGiraud asks Jehan to help him because he feels his parents have been cursed When Jehan visits Giraud’s parents he sees it is a very complicated curse and agrees to help GiraudAnd that’s how both of them leave the small village to go on a magical uest looking for a way to help Giraud’s parents They encounter all kinds of magical creatures during their journey as well as some dangerous Fae And while they are both trying to survive they are also slowly falling in loveWhile this is definitely a colorful book with its descriptions of this beautiful country one thing bothered me and kept me from truly enjoying this book I felt as if Jehan had no personality This story focusses mostly on everything these guys do or see but not on inner thoughts Jehan didn’t think about anything it seemed Yes he had the occasional thought about Giraud but that was it I couldn’t have said if Jehan was bold shy easily angered or what he liked to do when he was not off rescuing people I don’t like books with too much inner musings but I would have loved to read about Jehan’s feelings every once in a while Even Giraud had a personality while we never even got his POVAs for the romance there wasn’t a lot of that These guys acknowledge their attraction at the beginning of this book and become friends But readers will just have to do with some kisses It’s not that this story is entirely unromantic because there is talk about true love and I really liked those parts but I can’t say there really was a lot of relationship development don't worry there is a nice HEA and they do end up togetherThe second half was a bit action packed and definitely interesting I loved how badass Jehan got at one point so that’s what kept my entertainedI think this book will appeal to people who like fairy tales and magical stories but don’t really need a lot of romance or sexy timesWhile I liked the second half and ended up enjoying this magical journey I was missing some real character and relationship development The ending was nice though An ARC of The Blacksmith Prince was generously provided by the author in exchange for an honest reviewThis review is cross posted at Gay Book Reviews

Eir friendship and attraction gradually shifts into something deeper If they manage to survive ancient feuds and everyday prejudice they might even have a chance to forge a Happily Ever After all of their own From Rainbow Award winning authors Beryll Osiris Brackhaus ‘The Blacksmith Prince’ is an old fashioned swoon worthy historical fantasy romance about tender love in a time when history and fairy tales were one and the sa. The Blacksmith Prince is a genuine fairytale in the tradition of a Hauff La Motte Fouue or even Tolkien uirky and imaginative and laceed with a healthy dose of fine subtle humor It has just about anything you'd wish for a damsel in distress and a knight in shining armor who switch roles now and thengoing on a uest together curses that need lifting and spells which need to be fueled with blood and passion supernatural beings witchcraft and sorcery and on top of all this not only one but two love stories The whole of it combines traditional elements with a modern narrative in a way that I can only call masterful storytelling And what's this author duo has really mastered the art of painting pictures with words I felt like I was really there with Jehan and Giraud during those long ago summer days in circa 17th century Perigord in a time when wishing still helped as the saying goes when twists of fate could still be begged bartered for or bought from the forces of nature It's a world where magic and mystery are still close to the surface where ancient secretive beings dwell in rivers lakes and trees where those who take the time and pay attention can call upon the forces of nature at willIn short this is a beautiful story and a very delightful way to spend a few hours of escaping reality Highly recommended

The Blacksmith PrinceSmith and his The Blacksmith Kindle wife Their adoptive son Giraud is everybody’s dashing darling who behind his sooty smile and swashbuckling manners has buried a painful connection to the supernatural himself Fearing that some evil is afoot Giraud turns to the only other man in town who knows about the hidden world around them Jehan Before long they are embroiled in a uest involving brigands witches and noble fey while th. Ah a good old fashioned fairy tale set in a world that resembles the Perigord of the 17th century yet contains some distinctly alternate reality elements as well The setting in a dreamy region of France is wonderfully described and pulled me into a world full of charm traditional values and hidden dangers from the first page The supernatural makes a uick entrance since both main characters have links to a reality their compatriots fervently refuse to acknowledge If either Jehan born with the second sight or Giraud the village blacksmith’s adoptive son with a similar connection are caught they will be burned at the stake Not to mention they are attracted to each other instead of to the young women in their village How’s that for an immediate raising of the stakesJehan is a fisherman and even though his ancestors have all been witches with all sorts of talents he wants nothing to do with any of it Yes he enjoys communicating with all kinds of supernatural beings that nobody else can see but he knows that nobody can ever find out or he will die a gruesome death As if that weren’t enough he is attracted to men a second reason for the death penalty in those days Jehan is trying to be unobtrusive to live a uiet life but lucky for me who loves a good fairy tale with a few fantasy elements woven in – this is not meant to be Bad luck curses and some sort of dark threat that even Jehan’s grandmother thinks is very very serious force Jehan into actionGiraud may be the adopted son of the village’s blacksmith and everyone’s darling but he has than one dark secret as well His and Jehan’s adventures begin with what they expect to be a short if slightly dangerous trip but it soon becomes apparent that lifting the curse is going to be far difficult than Jehan thought The uest expands as does the danger and one revelation and twist chases the other as Jehan and Giraud discover secrets and truths they never could have imaginedWoven into the physical journey they take and the physical dangers they overcome is a hesitant slow burn romance that has both young men realizing they want to be together The enemies are plentiful the obstacles many and it doesn’t seem possible for them to get what their hearts desire no matter how much they and I want it All I can say is expect the unexpected I take my hat off to the author for coming up with a truly magical solution for creating a happy ever after that is no less than marvelousIf you like heroic tales of bravery and courage if you want to see two young men battle for their lives and love in eual measure and if you’re looking for an entertaining read that is as adventurous and occasionally funny as it is suspenseful and emotionally touching then you will probably like this imaginative novel as much as I do I recommend it to anyone in search of a creative fairy tale with all the proverbial trimmingsNOTE This book was provided by the author for the purpose of a review on Rainbow Book Reviews
