Book Description

Eighteen-year-old companion trainee Ciardis Weathervane has won the friendship of the royal heir and saved his claim to the throne. Yet her interference in the inheritance rights leaves more harm done than good. With the death of the Princess Heir, the Ameles forest - the home of the kith, is dying.


The inhabitants of the forest, magic-wielding non-humans, are defiant. They have not forgotten their long struggles nor are they content to watch as the last of their lands perish. As humans begin to die in gruesome deaths, the Emperor dispatches the royal heir to the forests with the solution to the kith concerns.

With enemies closing ranks in Sandrin, Ciardis can little afford to leave the city’s nest of vipers to take on a new task. But she’s given no choice when her loyalty to the crown and courts are called into question.

To keep the Companions’ Guild happy and the favor of the Imperial Court, Ciardis will be tested in frightening new ways, especially when she’s faced with an obstacle that could risk the lives of her friends and the family she never thought she had.

This second novel continues the story of Ciardis Weathervane from Sworn To Raise.

3.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing but not quite fulfilled June 18, 2014
By C Mc
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoyed following Ciardis' story in this second of the series. Ciardis is still learning about the vast potential of her mage powers - she knows that she is able to enhance the abilities of others, but what she doesn't know is that she is capable of far more. This makes her either a great asset to the empire...or a dangerous threat. So she has to try to help the young prince, while avoiding assasins. But something much larger than her own safety is at stake. Something dark is brewing, threatening to plunge the whole land into war and chaos. Ciardis is dispatched to the land of the kith, creatures that are not quite human and do not trust humans, to help discover what has been killing them. Only if she learns to master her power and work in harmony with others can the evil be overcome. And even then, only if they can discover who is responsible.

The storyline was intriguing, and definitely got better through the book (the first several chapters were slow, mainly relying on the happenings of Book 1). The passions that drive humans are clearly seen, and the plot twists were cleverly done. The spelling and grammar errors were a slight distraction (you don't "knock" arrows). What was more distracting to me was the very modern swearing and other expressions...it was hard to stay in fantasy-mode when the heroine sounded like an American teenager in a bad mood. Also, there were so many new ideas that weren't quite fulfilled - dragons and other characters appear briefly with hints of an overarching storyline. I'm assuming these will be addressed in future books but it was a bit much to put all in one book, in my opinion.

All in all, it was an enjoyable book to read and I look forward to the others. I do think the writing style and plot conception has improved from the first book...who knows what it could be by the end of the series! :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Sworn to Transfer Swears to Pull You In September 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
A great sequel with some exciting subplots! Edun delivers some fantastical new characters and the magical abilities are described in much more detail in this novel. The author also drops a metaphorical bomb near the end and the reader learns a little more about the MC's ancestry. I am definitely looking forward to the next book in the series. A very imaginative story with some suspenseful and breathtaking scenes. Suggested for fans of YA fantasy. You need to read the first novel before this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars 2.5 Really December 3, 2013
By DTM125
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have a couple of problems with this series.
I find almost all of the dialogue incredibly awkward; it very rarely flows for me or really entertains me.
I can see that the world building is there, but there are so many holes in its construction. So many times as I was reading, I felt like the author was just dropping information into the story that had very little background or previous explanation. And some of the devices introduced in this book felt completely half-assed, like the Shadow Council.
I also found the friendship between Sebastian and Ciardis to be pretty forced; it felt like I was constantly being told they had this great friendship and I never really "saw" it develop.

The Villains: Spolers
They're generally caricatures without any real substance or motivation. Their backgrounds are very rarely detailed or truly fleshed out so as I read about them I never feel a sense of a.) danger to Ciardis, and b.) a true sense of rational purpose from each of them. In this book we have three: the Duke, the Duchess and the Shadow Man. For the Duke and the Duchess, they are important people with public faces; so if they try to kill someone relatively openly it can be very easily tied back to them. Why would they risk themselves so obviously to commit Ciardis' murder? This problem existed in the last book as well with the Princess Heir. Murder is a crime. Try to commit crimes without any ties to you. Don't kidnap someone and then kill them in a public place, like a garden.
The Duke has reason to hate Ciardis for reasons that remained relatively unexplained to the reader until nearly the end of the book. But he's one of the first people who try to kill her. I found the entire scene where Stephanie shows up to save Ciardis to be completely ridiculous.

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't live up to its potential September 3, 2014
By lisa
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This could have been great: action, magic, imperial politics. There's an interesting world and the makings of a killer plot in here somewhere. Unfortunately, it doesn't manage to surface. The pacing is considerably off, rushing through scenes of great interest and failing to present important background. The point of view shifts randomly and too frequently from character to character. There is virtually no character development in the first two books. And, finally, it's rife with editing problems -- typos and grammar errors, yes, but also basic inconsistencies in the story (just for example, in a single sentence an ancillary character is referred to both as the uncle and as the distant relative of one of the main characters; in another scene, a woman is described as performing an act of magic witnessed by Ciardis, who then two pages later is totally unaware that this woman is a mage). Overall, even though I generally liked the story, I didn't enjoy this read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another story too large for a single book August 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was my introduction to the series. I enjoyed the pace of the story; it never dragged. The relationship between Ciardis and Sebastien is intriguing. I hope to see it deepen and mature in the rest of the series. I am always interested in a story with dragons. I look forward to learning the details of the sarin relationship. The writing is crisp and sufficiently descriptive to give your imagination something to work with. I would love to see an illustrated version of this book.
