    One thought on “Cold-Forged Flame”

    1. Provided that this is a quite short story about 110 pages it is actually a great book It is a fantasy story, possibly the beginning of something really epic view spoiler it ends with the door open to many stories to follow hide spoiler It felt like a psychological thriller She wakes up at some point in the middle of no where and she is compelled to complete a quest she does not know anything about I really enjoyed the mental trip she goes through It is a really awesome story of a woman finding [...]

    2. Well that was fun And really suspenseful When s the next one coming out Immediately, right Because that was fun A woman wakes on a slab of rock and remembers nothing of her life, although she remembers places and objects and such She finds that she s essentially been conjured into being and is bound to a quest to obtain some blood from a cauldron on a mysterious island that is only there sometimes The trip to the cave on the island is full of many traps and tests and it manages to create a great [...]

    3. I d give this novella a solid 3.5 s overall as it s not quite what I expected and it does have some unique moments, but the present tense writing style can be a little jarring at times as it is a little unusual This is a novella I picked up because I knew I liked Marie Brennan and Tor and so it just seemed like a match I needed to sample I don t think this is the sort of story you should go into knowing too much, and so I won t tell you much, other than it s exciting, mysterious and definitely I [...]

    4. Review also published hereDisclaimer I received an ARC of this novella from the publisher Keep that in mind while reading the review.Cold Forged Flame is a very different story from Marie Brennan s Lady Trent Memoirs, which I adore and eagerly await the final book of What the story does have in common with the series is that it is about a girl woman on the journey to self discovery although in a different manner than the Lady Trent s.The originally unnamed protagonist is summoned and bound to a [...]

    5. I m trying to read a little outside of my comfort zone this year and I thought this novella from Tor was a perfect place to start A woman wakes up surrounded by a clan of people whom she doesn t know She doesn t remember her past or her name but suddenly she is given the task of obtaining a few drops of blood from an ancient entity who lives on an island in the middle of basically nowhere During the way she encounters threats and forges a new alliance As she struggles to complete her task, she a [...]

    6. A really interesting idea, but I would have liked this as the first arc of a novel rather than a stand alone story Well done, just not really my thing

    7. This is an interesting story with an intriguing main character The story s main shortcoming isat it s short It comes in at about 60 pages on my iPad mini screen, a long short story or a very short novella At 2.99, it s a bit pricey for what you get.The story ends with a promising set up for further adventures, and this story would work well as a prequel to a series If this is, indeed, the case and the next book due out next spring is a full length novel, I will look forward to it If the series c [...]

    8. She is summoned, bound to a task and sent on her way with at first no idea of who or what she is, nor why she has been sent As she traverses an implacably hostile and not all that fair playing island, she may or may not be discovering some of the answers A shorter novella, this one, but intriguing, and I look forward to the sequel.

    9. I really enjoyed this novella, and what looks like the start to a series It is only 100 pages, and it is amazing how much Brennan fits into this story Just go with it, our lead is missing her memory, so you don t know what is really happening for quite some time I found the story completely worth it Just immerse yourself in the rich fantasy trappings, that are surprisingly short on words Bring on book 2

    10. I ve heard great things about Marie Brennan s books My husband has read her The Memoirs of Lady Trent series, and loved it It was one of his favorite fantasy series that he read in 2016 He has talked so positively about her books that I ve really wanted to read them I was looking through her backlog, and decided to try Cold Forged Flame It s a Tor novella, which I ve read a lot of recently It s short, so I figured it would be a quick read to get a taste of her writing style Unfortunately, I didn [...]

    11. I much enjoyed this author s A Natural History of Dragons, which some people found dull This is not dull It s a fast moving novella with plenty of action and conflict The plot is straightforward and doesn t break new ground fetch quest with obstacles to overcome , and it begins with amnesia Neither of these things are promising on the face of it Main character amnesia, in particular, is a cliche start, and is sometimes an inexperienced author s way of dealing with the fact that they don t know w [...]

    12. Received to review via NetgalleyI was so excited to receive this I love Marie Brennan s work, and by coincidence my request was even approved on my wedding day So of course I ve hurried to read it, and I wasn t disappointed at all it s part of Tor s novella series, so it is short, but for me it avoids the issues of many other novellas by being both a whole story in itself but with scope for stories I think that s partially what makes it satisfying it leaves space for without feeling unfinished [...]

    13. Ahoy there me mateys I received this fantasy eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review So here be me honest musings .I had previously read this author s warrior witch duology and the first novel in her Lady Trent series I wanted of her work and this book sounded amazing I read this in a sitting and adored it .The worse thing I can say about the reading experience was that I didn t know it was a novella I finished the e book version and was convinced that I had somehow gotten a weird [...]

    15. 4.0 StarsWhile I rarely read short fiction, I picked up this novel because the premising sounded so intriguing I love reading stories that involve unreliable narrators with missing or incomplete memories Over the course of the book, the narrative slowly unravels the mysterious past of the main character Despite the short length, this piece of fiction felt memorable, delving deeply into themes of destiny and free will This was my first experience writing Marie Brennan s work and I was thoroughly [...]

    16. I enjoyed the story, but was thrown out by the character s cursing Not that she was cursing but her curse words felt 20th 21st century American and the story was obviously not located here.

    17. Interesting Feels like the first part of a potential series A bit strange in the second half But, interesting.

    19. Interesting themes, but very different from The Memoirs of Lady Trent the only other work by Brennan that I ve read A lot cussing, namely I think the world set up in this, but I hope there are longer works set in this world I know there is a sequal but it is also only 100 pages long If you didn t like the Lady Trent books, I would say check this out because it might be of your liking.

    20. Brilliant complex highly imaginative story of self discovery and survival.Tor publishing schedule has this frequent habit of derailing me from my reading schedule And they did it yet again forcing me to pick up Cold Forged Flame by Marie Brennan Marie Brennan is a name that should be familiar to me, but sadly I haven t jumped onto the bandwagon of readers, who are enad by her series, A Natural History of Dragons and the subsequent sequels, detailing the adventures of Lady Trent and co.So Cold Fo [...]

    21. This feels like a writing experiment gone wrong The beginning scene, the opening concept of the novella because at 100 pages this is not nearly a novel is compelling a warrior woman appears, summoned by need, with no idea of who she is or what she is to do But from there she doesn t go on to learn much about herself, or change in interesting ways, or get embroiled in an exciting plot, unravel a mystery, or even wander a fantasy world so unique and richly imagined we don t really mind there s not [...]

    22. This is one of Tor s new novella line This particular story was 100 pages, and for an introduction this format was perfect Sometimes a book doesn t need to be doorstop size to make its point.Speaking of perfect, look at this opening paragraph.The sound of the horn pierces the apeiron, shattering the stillness of that realm Its clarion call creates ripples, substance, something It is a summons, a command There is will There is need.And so, in reply, there is a woman.Now that, my friends, is a ho [...]

    23. 2 5 starsAfter reading the book it surprised me how spot on the synopsis was, as it is really telling all we are going to find on the book.This is a short story, and while I feel like of a background foundation might have been handy, I also guess the author could have been bounded by space The secundary characters doesn t feel very alive , but the main one has a very distinctive voice.I d probably read of the upcoming ones as this is an easy but entertaining read.

    24. I loved this It reminded me of the best of old school sword sorcery without its problems fedpeaches 2017 0

    25. And this female warrior springs into life, full of fury, not knowing who she is or where she comes from but bound by magic to the rather frightened mage who summons her So as a reader, do I care about her After all, I haven t a clue who she is or what she stands for other than the fact that they are all very frightened of her and she would dearly like to do them bloody harm What about learning of her backstory to pull me into her world and make me bond with her Nope that can t happen She doesn t [...]

    27. Wonderfully imaginative tale of adventure and discovery Becoming aware of herself, on a stone slab with a slain bull on the ground and a bowl of its blood in front of her She is bound to a task and sent off on a journey without knowing who she is, what she is, or even her name At a 100 pages it is a quick read but a fully developed story well told Paperback library book Love the Lady Trent series, want to read something else she wrote The sound of the horn pierces the apeiron, shattering the sti [...]

    28. Cold Forged Flame is an intriguing adventure that begins when an archon is summoned through a Cruais s ritual from the realm of apeiron and bound to bring him a vial of blood from the caldron of Lhian Without any details about her mission or knowledge of her identity, the woman called is taken to a mysterious island where with the help of a sabre, sash and ember must find the cave and the caldron within.A short story, Marie Brennan skilfully escalates its intensity when the woman not only is fac [...]
