Master of Iron

Feiwel & Friends. (Bladesmith: Bk. 2). Jul. 2022. 400p. Tr $18.99. ISBN 9781250756824.
Gr 9 Up–Ziva, an anxious blacksmith who creates magic weapons, has captured a warlord at a terrible cost. Desperate to save her sister, Ziva is on the trail of a magical healer who has been kidnapped by a rival prince. When Ziva and her love interest get captured, she’s forced once again to make magic weapons or see Kellyn tortured to death. In Blade of Secrets the forge was where Ziva was safe before her adventure, but in Master of Iron it imprisons her as the very war she was trying to avoid comes to a head. Readers who signed up for adventure may be let down by the politics that slow the story’s pacing.
VERDICT Levenseller neatly wraps up the political and romantic plots of her duology; recommended as an additional purchase.
