#BookReview: Diamond City (Diamond City #1) by @FFloresAuthor #Giveaway


Synopsis: Good things don't happen to girls who come from nothing...unless they risk everything.

Fierce and ambitious, Aina Solís as sharp as her blade and as mysterious as the blood magic she protects. After the murder of her parents, Aina takes a job as an assassin to survive and finds a new family in those like her: the unwanted and forgotten.

Her boss is brutal and cold, with a questionable sense of morality, but he provides a place for people with nowhere else to go. And makes sure they stay there.

DIAMOND CITY: built by magic, ruled by tyrants, and in desperate need of saving. It is a world full of dark forces and hidden agendas, old rivalries and lethal new enemies.

To claim a future for herself in a world that doesn't want her to survive, Aina will have to win a game of murder and conspiracy—and risk losing everything.

Full of action, romance and dark magic, book one of Francesca Flores' breathtaking fantasy duology will leave readers eager for more!

My Review: This steampunkish setting story is one that I won't soon forget.  I have to say that it was blended with so many elements that at first I found it kind of confusing but after the story really got going I found myself falling in love with the weaving of the tale.  The story itself as well as the main character gave me Throne of Glass vibes so many times.  And it worked so well for this story.  The setting was great and the ending was even better.  I loved that it was a pretty thick book so things didn't feel rushed at all.  I need book two now.  The use of crystals as magic was great and I liked how diamonds were at the forefront of the story.  I mean diamonds are a girls best friend after all.
