BLOG TOUR: The Witch King by H.E. Edgmon

 I am very excited to be a part of the Blog Tour for The Witch King by H.E. Edgmon. I received an advanced electronic copy for honest review from the publisher. Thanks so much to Inkyard Press and H.E. Edgmon for letting me be a part of this tour.

Synopsis: To save a fae kingdom, a trans witch must face his traumatic past and the royal fiancé he left behind. This debut YA fantasy will leave you spellbound.
Wyatt would give anything to forget where he came from—but a kingdom demands its king.
In Asalin, fae rule and witches like Wyatt Croft…don’t. Wyatt’s betrothal to his best friend, fae prince Emyr North, was supposed to change that. But when Wyatt lost control of his magic one devastating night, he fled to the human world.
Now a coldly distant Emyr has hunted him down. Despite transgender Wyatt’s newfound identity and troubling past, Emyr has no intention of dissolving their engagement. In fact, he claims they must marry now or risk losing the throne. Jaded, Wyatt strikes a deal with the enemy, hoping to escape Asalin forever. But as he gets to know Emyr, Wyatt realizes the boy he once loved may still exist. And as the witches face worsening conditions, he must decide once and for all what’s more important—his people or his freedom. (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: I was initially drawn to this book because of the cover. A good cover can definitely make me pick up and read a book. If you're looking for a diverse book, this is definitely the one. It was an interesting and entertaining read. It had a lot of stuff going for it.
This was fun. There was a lot of adventure in it. The writing was good, it had a lot of snark to it. The whole book was entertaining.
This book was also pretty dark. There was gore and death that happened during this grand adventure. The characters had to do a lot.
I really liked the found family element that happened in it. The characters were pretty good.
This was definitely a story. It was entertaining.

H.E. Edgmon was born in the deep south but has had many homes, dropped out of school to do gay stuff, and is at least a little feral.
In both their writing and daily life, they aim to center the voices of Indigenous people, trans people, and survivors of trauma. It is always their goal to make fascists uncomfortable.
They have an eccentric little family of their own design, several very sensitive pets, and a lot of opinions. They can most often be found on Twitter @heedgmon.
