Sworn to Conflict (Courtlight series #3)
written by Terah Edun
published by Terah Edun
Why did I pick this book: I read the first two books in the Courtlight series. (See my reviews here: Sworn to Raise and Sworn to Transfer.) I signed up for the blog tour hosted by Girls Heart Books Tour. (I received a copy of this book for review purposes.)
Did I enjoy this book: This is the third book in the series. It’s much like the second, in that there are a ton of new characters, a generous number of new story arcs, and a more serious tone. I’m reminded of The Hunger Games books: the first installment only vaguely hinted at the darkness to follow. So, yes, I liked it. I’ve still got the same issues with Edun’s writing, but yet again she’s managed to dream up a story that keeps me reading.
Would I recommend it: If you’ve made it this far in the series it’s unlikely you’ll need me to tell you to keep reading, but, just for the record: Keep Reading.
Will I read it again: Noooo, but I’m happily awaiting Sworn to Secrecy.
About the book: Ciardis Weathervane fought for the living dead and won. But worse than taking on a mass murderer, was her discovery that she had been deceived by her friends. Now she needs to not only fight a war in the North and survive, but also decide where she stands in the midst of competing sides.
A threat to all she holds dear lies in the North and her heart is not the only thing she might lose. A massive army awaits in the mountain pass, surging closer to the gates of the southern lands. Nothing the Algardis army has done so far has dissuaded their march forward and Ciardis finds out that her powers to enhance are needed now more than ever.
As she faces her greatest fears on the battlefields and her heart is torn between her love of Sebastian and loyalty to her family, Ciardis must choose her fate carefully. For in her path, lies the destiny of the empire.
This third novel continues the story of Ciardis Weathervane from Sworn to Transfer.
