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.

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.

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.]
