About the Author
Kylie Griffin’s obsession with all things paranormal/fantasy started at an early age, when she used to imagine the jacaranda tree in her front yard was a spaceship used to defend the world from invading enemies. Writing stories seemed a natural extension to her childhood adventures. Today, she’s a primary school teacher sharing her love for the written word with young children. In her spare time, she writes and reads all things paranormal.

So the last book left us wondering what happened to Arek. The last we heard he suffered from a concussion and was being herded with others, captured, and taken away into slavery. So the story begins: Yes Arek is captured, and we find out first hand of his struggles, both physical and mental, in every situation. . . The uncertainty, the will to escape, to survive, to live true to his values, to consider his upbringing, to question just who he is and his knowledge of his world. . . Such a complex and wonderful characterization of Arek and I couldn't help but be captivated myself. He questions and is tested, his fierce determination and commitment, his strength to overcome -- All this and more made him the second to the Chosen, a strong position and so worthy of this warrior. As the story unfolds, he learns and grows, overcoming his hatred and vengeance, honing it, and realizing where his values are. Arek realizes his life has come to this point for a reason and life isn't always about long term because . . .
The demon Na'Reish are preparing for war. Arek and his new mistress, the leader of the Na'Reish Clan Kaal are targeted in this war, in more ways than one. They stand in the way, stand alone in this world, clinging to the old ways. Imhara Kaal is the Kaal Clan-leader and she is the one that influences and teaches Arek that life isn't always what he was taught to believe.
The romance is there, the wonderful depth of characters, my words just can't describe how I sunk into them. The demon Na'Reish are corrupt and the scenes are portrayed that way. The evil is there, well done, yet you know what their society is like: Humans are cattle, their humanity isn't respected, they are slaves to them, theirs to use and abuse and to kill. Realizing how corrupt the society is that Imhara lives in makes her role even more amazing.
Wonderful book and I'm sitting here still marveling over the depth to her characters. There are a few cameos from the past two books, a nice check to see how they're doing. Allegiance Sworn (A Novel of the Light Blade) is well written, great romance, well worth picking up to enjoy whether it's the first one you pick from this series or the last one written to date. This was a new author I picked up last year and I'm so glad I did. I recommend this series and am looking forward to more from Kylie Griffin. -- Dan's Wife
