Seattle native Matti Puletasi has the strength of a bear, the stamina of an ox, and a magical hammer inherited from her dwarven mother.
She’s happy renovating homes and occasionally thumping bad guys until she learns of a mysterious artifact hidden under the house she’s working on. Everybody from humans to orcs to werewolves wants it, and they’re willing to kill to get it. Things go from bad to worse when someone frames her for murder.
The only person interested in helping her is a haughty elf assassin from another realm. He’s handsome, powerful, and deadly, but he’s got an agenda of his own. She dare not trust him—or be attracted to him.
But if she can’t clear her name, the assassin will be the least of her worries.
Set in the same world as Death Before Dragons, the Legacy of Magic series is perfect for urban fantasy fans who enjoy adventure, snarky humor, and slow-burn romance with badass elves who should not be trusted. Pick up Book 1, Hammered, today!

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
There were many things I loved about this but the main ones are:
• FMC is 34 with a regular job and regular problems.
She felt she was not considered model-esque and felt a lot of insecurity about it but also knew that her appearance was not what defined her. She took great pride in her craft and worked to be a good person.
As someone who is also 5’1” I understood a lot of her inner monologue about her body insecurities and feeling intimidated around others.
• MMC is kind of a dink, but was never overtly mean to FMC and gave off genuine vibes of wanting her to be well without undermining her own abilities.
•No insta-love here!
•Unique world-building and an interesting plot.
•Fun secondary characters
Some things I didn’t love:
• Pacing starts off fast, then kind of gets slower (but it is setting up the series so it’s forgivable)
That’s pretty much it. A solid start to this series.
I will probably treat this book as the first half of a proper book and check out the next book to see if the series improves.

Matti is a half dwarf who enjoys flipping houses. She is good at the job she loves. Then, there is Tinja, a goblin who helps in her endeavour. They are working on this house and she soon finds that there buried "treasure" under the house. Something magical that various factions in her supernatural world is hunting for. She is surrounded by werewolves and orcs who are looking for what is under this house. There is a Willard who is trying to recruit her for the army, but she loves her current job and is reluctant to accept her offer. There is a some fascinating magic and an elf assassin too. They work well together and there is a hint of attraction between them. Will they or won't they?
There is some magical talent around them and the elf is quite magical himself. He has some interesting gadgets and he is looking for Matti's mother who is presumed dead. It's a long winded read with some fun attached to it. Zav is a dragon who wears the most fascinating shoes. He has a minor role in this book and it is all in good fun. I must admit that it took me a while to really get into this read and I am glad that I persevered to the end, which isn't really the end. It looks like there is more to come in the next book and I have a big question mark as whether to read or not. Time will tell.
