The First Girl Child Book The First Girl ChildAuthor Amy HarmonSeries None Cliffhanger No Publication Date August 20, 2019Genre FantasyRating 4.5 out of 5 Stars Complimentary copy generously provided by the author through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.My Thoughts Story OK I had a really hard time rating this book because when I first finished it, I thought OK, maybe a 4 because it was slow starting.but then after I thought about it and how everything came together, I was like I m bumping this up to a 4.25 because it was so heart felt.So, as I try to write this review now, I am torn about how to rate this to this day, I can t get this story out of my head and all of the characters in the story Normally, I read a book and within a few days, I completely forget the story line unless I go back and start re reading but this book it s been almost a month and I still keep thinking about it.Not just about being a big Amy Harmon fan this story by the end really touched my soul and it still does to this day Yes, it was slow yes, I was second guessing a few times about asking for an ARC but by the time I was done, I forgot all about it and focused on the feels I was experiencing after closing down the book.I am not going to write about the characters or the story I m just gonna ARC provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review First of all, I want to say that I love that Amy Harmon decided to write a Fantasy novel She is one of the most well rounded authors and can write, in my opinion, in any genre she wants I don t read a lot of Fantasy novels because I find the story building sometimes a bit complicated You get a lot of information in a small time of frame, and it is difficult to absorb all of it However, I never got that feeling from The First Girl Child Amy s writing is always very easy to read, and has a great flow I was teleported to Saylok and I felt like I was really living in that Kingdom I loved all the characters and their relationships The secondary characters felt as important as the main characters They all played a very important role in the book, so I was happy that the author included their POVs.The romance aspect is a bit in the background, which I surprisingly didn t mind too much However, I would ve wanted this to be part of a series instead of a stand alone I think there is still so much to explore in this world, and I am very intrigued by it The last quarter just flew by and the book was finished before I knew it So that f Reading The First Girl Child Author Amy Harmon Natus Physiotherapy.co.uk From

for any of you to love Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned as Ari my buddy reader said this could be the motto of this book The first thing that astonished me in this book is a totally different writing style from what I have read from Amy so far Still very beautiful though.I can t pinpoint the difference but it had a tale quality It was simpler Naked, free of any unnecessary embellishment It was raw like these Norse men And it fitted the story to a T The focal point of this story was women s power or lack of The women in that time and place could become warriors but were always second to men If they were nobles they were seen as investments to forge alliances And everything began when a woman, Desdemona, was rejected by her lover for a high ranking woman, hoping to become king that way But fear the woman you have wronged as she holds a great power I loved the power of women The greed of men and their foolish pride would be their damnation Decades would go by with great suffering for the people because of a single curse You can t deny that Desdemona could hold a grudge like no one else One of our heroes is the young Bayr, Desdemona s son and he ll dedicate his life to protect Alba, the daughter of king Bay As I am typing this review out, I am also currently packing up my house so that I can permanently take up residency inside of Amy Harmon s pretty brain Could you just imagine the amount of magic you would witness if you spent your days inside of there I can And let me tell you, it sounds like my dream vacation destination While reading The First Girl Child, I loved a lot of things Below, I am going to bullet point each one I feel like this should be a very organized and broken down review The mixture of action and humor Seriously The dry humor is incredible Seeing the characters interact was so amusing and entertaining The characters Okay but seriously I can t sit here and break it down, one by one, because each character had such strong characteristics that I loved for all sorts of different reasons But I will say that in true Amy Harmon fashion, she has created a set of characters that you will remember years later When you hear someone say the title The Last Girl Child you will instantly replay the great cast of characters inside of your head and smile The story concept Loved it Point Blank LOVED IT The title portrays just what I loved most about it Have you read a book like this NO Even remotely close NO, probably not It s unique It s Amy Harmon She is a fantastic story teller Each time I pick up one of her books, I am always rem I recieved an ARC through NetGalley for an honest review Many thanks to the publisher, 47NorthBayr of Saylok, bastard son of a powerful and jealous chieftain, is haunted by the curse once leveled by his dying mother Bartered, abandoned, and rarely loved, she plagued the land with her words From this day forward, there will be no daughters in Saylok.Raised among the Keepers at Temple Hill, Bayr is gifted with inhuman strength But he s also blessed with an all too human heart that beats with one purpose to protect Alba, the first girl child born in nearly two decades and the salvation for a country at risk.Now the fate of Saylok lies with Alba and Bayr, whose bond grows deeper with every whisper of coming chaos Charged with battling the enemies of their people, both within and without, Ba I received an e ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Review can be found on Milky Way of Books This is going to be a hard review to write Not because I didn t enjoy the book People I plan on re reading, re listening to the audiobook and hope that Amy Harmon writes spin off novellas and invent a way for a certain couple to be together Needless to say, this is Amy Harmon s finest work in the fantasy genre I didn t think that The first Girl Child would top The Bird and the Sword duology, but it.In a fantasy world where an island stands in the middle of the sea and clans rule with a king on top Where monks have the power to choose kings and runes hold magic in them, the story begins with the birth of a boy Bayr is a bastard whose mother was cheated in love, whose father is power hungry and whose uncle Dagmar is one of those monks Bayr s mother, curses the people of their land to not give birth to girls and slowly as the decades span, the curse will wipe out their people.Bayr grows to be an extraordinary young man with the power of ten men and the heart of a sweet, beautiful soul And as plots and lies thicken, suddenly the first girl child is born out of the blue Alba appears and the mysterio Just WOW Every time I read an Amy Harmon book I pray that a film producer will pick it up and make it into a film The scenes in the book and the characters are so beautifully described that they played out in big screen cinematography as I read it.The First Girl Child has left me spellbound I don t know how I can move on I want to return to the land of Saylok and stay there forever wit I received this complimentary ARC from the publisher, courtesy of NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.I loved So good I cosplayed as Lagertha while filming this Watch the full review on YouTube.Thanks so much to 47North for granting our ARC request of this on NetGalley It s still up if you want to grab an advanced copy of this stellar histo
