Andrea Robertson kicks off a new adventure involving gods, magic, and fate with Forged in Fire and Stars. If I didn't know this book was about a blacksmith before seeing this cover, I'd have a strong inkling. I know very little about what goes into smithing a weapon, but this cover seems like a flatlay of all that's involved—and the outcome. Sadly, the girl on the anvil seems like an afterthought; it's like the designer thought girls wouldn't read this if they didn't see themselves in it? Let's get away from that thinking. Ara Silverthread knows who she is. At least, she knows who her grandmother's told her she is: Daughter of the last Loresmith, a gods-anointed servant of the Saetlund people whose job it is to make mighty weapons for the Loreknights, gods-anointed protectors of the Saetlund people.
Forged by Fire Book Report
The best reality television focuses on talent. Sure, we all love drama, and watching a bunch of people scheme and plot and riff on some version of "I'm not here to make friends" like they invented the phrase is fun and all, but shows that pit smart, talented people against each other in a test of skill? Not only is the subject fascinating, it's also educational both in terms of how these things are actually made and the history of some of the weapons they create. The best part is that they manage to wring drama out of the competition instead of interpersonal drama.
