Unbonded (First of the Blade Book 1) Kindle Edition
Taught to fear magic. Trained from a young age to destroy those who wield it. The First of the Blade Series begins.
Trained to destroy sorcery from a young age, Imogen Inaratha left that life behind, having come to see magic differently. When her brother asks for help, she embarks on a dangerous journey—and must face a part of her past she wanted to forget.
An encounter with one of the mythical Porapeth changes the course of the journey. Protecting him forces her to face dark magical creatures and a powerful sorcerer determined to destroy the Porapeth in his quest for even more power.
To succeed, she must learn the truth of the blade she’d long thought she’d mastered.
She must truly become the First of the Blade.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The author tried to be too cryptic about Timo and his mission and didn’t have Imogen act wisely in gathering information. It made no sense that she dropped everything for a brother she hadn’t seen in years who had “an aura of darkness” around him that she didn’t bother to question.
Although Imogen learned some things about using her sword, the how and why of that were left to the imagination. This made the conflict inauthentic to me and the ending fall flat.
I’m always looking for a new fantasy author and another great series to read. Unfortunately, I didn’t find it here.

I had to see the book finished and I did but its crying out for some critical editing and a spellchecker.
I honestly want this series to be so good but I really don't know if I can pick up the second volume.
I know this will sound harsh but the basic plot and the world setting is so good I want to get lost in the best version of the story, not the one that even the writer couldn't be bothered reading over.
However I will try the next book in the series to see if Imogen and Benji (the best character in the book by far) and free Timo from the dark side of sorcery, but will definitely not continue if it not only shows repetitive points but also refers back to book one too many times early on.
