Book Description

Start with Sworn To Raise (Book One) FREE - amazon.com/dp/B00C9VC7AY/

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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly intriguing and compelling work April 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I started book #1 in this series I had no expectations beyond curiosity. I quickly got hooked by the fairly original and compelling narrative. Book #2 kept me just as interested, and the cliff hanger ending made a good teaser for book #3 (which I haven't yet read). There are some editing issues with the Kindle edition that suggested a good proofreading was needed, but this was not enough to dampen my interest or obscure the story. I found no obvious instances of behavior that was inconsistent (a pet peeve of mine). The main character is young and somewhat ingenuous, but is learning rapidly. Also, as in real life, there is information you wished they would tell but don't. We usually proceed in our lives without all the info, so this seems fairly realistic. Occasional bits of humor slip in that gave me a "I was thinking that" moment. I think I can see where this is going, but the end game is not obvious. One can hope the hero and heroine get together in the end, but....

A very interesting read if you don't mind the violence, all of which is relevant to the story thread.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first! December 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Amazon's blurb: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. The Ameles Forest lies unprotected and it's inhabitants are dying.
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.

My Thoughts:
I enjoyed the first book in the series a lot, and this one did not disappoint as so many second books in series often do. Ciardis grows as a character, but still you can see glimpses of the girl she used to be when she upsets the apple cart more than once..

There are believable characters, exciting mini plots that happen all through the book, and an unexpected twist for the ending. The pacing was fast, and I am definitely looking forward to the next!

[disclosure: I received a free ebook from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.]
