The latest release in the high fantasy series which has drawn comparisons to Kushiel's Dart, Graceling, and the epic world of Tamora Pierce.
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 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.
It has been a couple of months since I have read the Sworn to Transfer so it took me a while to recall what exactly happened in the previous book since this book picked up right after it.
Sworn to Transfer ended in the middle of a battle scene and to top it off Ciardis just find out that her life is not what she thought it was. It was now up to Ciardis to uncover the whole truth about her past, her friends and her family. So you can tell that she was confused about everything and didn’t know how to trust. But even though her life is a complete mess there is still a lot of humor in the situations she gets herself in.
Ciardis has grown a lot since the first books as well as Sebastian. They were both just kids when we first met them. But know they learned how to deal with their problems. And Ciardis developed more of her powers. Their romance was finally lifted to a higher level, which I loved since they had it coming since book one. The sudden change came a bit out of nowhere and they still have a long way to go but it was great to see.
Overall, this is a great YA fantasy series. Every book is different from the previous one in a refreshing way. I can’t wait to read my copy of the next book in this series!
