The writing continues to be good and I am sure that all the other readers who have gotten this far in the saga all will want it to progress a lot faster. I think this one is overpriced for what it is. Not sure what actually happened with the Emperor at the end of this book but perhaps that will be cleared up in the first page of the next one. This whole book is basically just a few hours in one day so there is a lot of "thinking" and conversation in this one but not much real action and certainly no character development or new characters. If the next one is like this it will be the end of the saga for me.
Sworn to War was an amazing addition to The Courtlight Series and the world of Algardis. From the very beginning you are taken on an emotional ride with too many twists and turns to count. Just when you think Ciardis, Sebastian, and Thanar are gaining the upper hand on the emperor, the emperor has another trick up his sleeve.
When the emperor announces that one of his demands for the negotiation is the banishment of Thanar and Thanar agreed, I kept telling myself it couldn't be true. The final blow was when Thanar disappeared to the other realm and was essentially dead, I was officially heartbroken.
I am completely team Sebastian when it comes to Ciardis's romantic interest, but Thanar has grown on me and has even grown on Sebastian. We have already lost Vana and Merris, both of who were personal favorites of mine, and Terris and Christian are missing. Losing Thanar would be another terrible blow to my favorite Courtlight characters.
The moment Thanar returned even more powerful before and accompanied by Raisa no less, I was literally cheering out-loud ! My family looked at me like I had completely lost it, but that's okay. They aren't book-lovers like us, so they don't get it.
Now to wait for the next Courtlight book....
I started reading these types of books back in junior high school if that. I started with Piers Anthony's Zanth series. I bought a book from the library that had 3 Zanth stories in one book. It has been over 35 years since I started reading the Zanth series. A way to get away from childhood and end up in the amazing land of Zanth. I feel the same way with this series! I am taken away to another world, where dragons, mages, a girl whose life changes in the most dramatic way and where Magic still exists!
As usual I have already ordered book 10 by Terah Edun and it's has already been downloaded onto my Email Reader, just waiting for me to find out who this journey ends, unless some other twist happens and there is a book 11 out there somewhere to keep me in the Court Light ;)

Synopsis (from Goodreads): Ciardis Weathervane is facing a war on two fronts. One with the dragons. One with the deities. She is ready to face the god that they’ve known was coming for months, but the people that she thought would coalesce around her are faltering under the pressure, the lies, and the deceit. She knows that the very foundation between ruler, nobility, and commoner had fractured down to its core. Now the capital city and its people need to be reforged, bound in fire before they’re consumed by brimstone. But the citizens of the empire need more than a speech to believe in the rulers that betrayed them just days before. With their empire on the line, Sebastian lays out his first ruling edict which may be more than even he bargained for. As Sandrin comes together once more before the final struggle, the daemoni prince is struck down and the princess heir-in-waiting has doubts as to whether they can forge a more perfect union without the one that completes their souls. With Thanar trapped in purgatory while they fight to resurrect the city that gave them life—Ciardis and Sebastian are in a battle to the death against a god bent on living forever.
Sworn to War can not be read as a standalone as it relies heavily on events and relationships established in the previous books. In particular it relies on the events of Sworn to Sovereignty from which it continues. This review may contain spoilers for the previous books in the Courtlight series.
I definitely had a moment while reading Sworn to War when I thought about just how far Ciardis has come as a character. It was probably spurred on by both Ciardis and other characters, that I don't want to name to avoid spoilers, were thinking about and mentioning the girl she was when she first came to Court.
The events of Sworn to War take place in a very short amount of time, but there was so much information and build up going on that I was glad that Edun decided to make this book about that and not squish the scenes down and put them in with another book. I felt like each moment was important, both for Ciardis and for the plot in general.
I do still have questions though! And some theories about motivations and who unknown characters are. This book did answer a few of the lingering questions I had though, including a hint about Sebastian's father.
As with the other Courtlight books the romancantic elements were subtle. Sebastian, Thanar and Ciardis now seem to have fit more comfortably into their bond, and there even seems to be a warming relationship between the two men. Though Sworn to War did significantly warm me towards Thanar, who I was a little wary of before.
This was a great addition t the series and answered some burning questions, I just can't wait for more!
Having said this I will be buying the next in the series in the hope that Terah pulls her socks up and produces the kind of book she is well capable of
The heroines emotions rapidly change from one sentence to the next making no sense whatsoever and the pace of the book is shocking. For 80% of it you are left wondering why the author is still going on about the exact same thing that you read on the first page and then the last 20% is a complete hash.
The only reason I gave it one star is because Thanar has the makings of an interesting character.
