The Iron Locket (Risen King, #1)
Publication: April 18th 2013

Risen King Series
Book 1

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, nor 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?

Samantha WarrenSamantha Warren is a fantasy and science fiction author who spends her days immersed in dragons, spaceships, and vampires.

In the name of research, she enlisted the help of her pet dragon Anethesis and together they built a Noah’s Ark-like spaceship. Three trips through a hole in the time-space continuum allowed the pair to explore the universe decades into the past and eons into the future. They discovered how life would be without Earth and were forced to run from alien law enforcement when their spaceship was deemed unspaceworthy. In the long run, the constant demands of space travel and repairs cut into Samantha’s sock fetish fund, so she was forced to sell her ark for half-price to a slimy creature that made Jabba the Hutt look like Brad Pitt.

After her years of traveling, she returned to her roots. When she isn’t writing or reading, she is milking cows or trying to feed them Pop-Tarts and FiberOne bars (they like neither). She also spends a lot of time in her weed patch (aka: garden), drinking lattes at the Village Cafe, or watching any show featuring Gordon Ramsay. Anethesis remains by her side, sleeping away the day and hunting evil cat-eating coyotes by night

I must say that this book is very different then what I'm use too, but I still enjoyed it very much. The writing was great and sucked me in from the beginning. And the plot just caught my attention and I was very intrigued from reading the description, so I knew I was going to enjoy it! 

The book did start off a little slower then I would of hoped for, but once it got in to the main plot it took off and I was sucked into the world that Samantha Warren has created! 

Their is war on the horizon, and the four queens feel they might very well be over their heads. So they come together from their different lands to raise King Arthur and his twelve most reliable knights from the dead! Yeah, you heard it right. The queens feel with their King by their side they
 might just be able to win the war and make it on top!

Through King Arthur's journey's he finds more then he could of imagine! He finds love in a half-human faery hunter and descendent of faery royalty girl named Aiofe. Aiofe is a strong and determined person that I enjoyed reading about. Arthur and Aiofe defentely had a spark from the beginning and I was routing for them every step of the way! 

Together they have to overcome many obstacles to get through the incoming war and make it out alive! 

So overall even with the slow start, I most defentely enjoyed it and thought it was a good introduction to the beginning of the series. And I am looking forward to finishing this series!
