Series- Courtlight Series #1
By- Terah Edun
Genre- Young Adult, Fantasy, Coming of Age
Seventeen-year-old Ciardis has grown up in poverty, a cleaner in a small vale on the outskirts of the empire. But beneath her empire’s seemingly idyllic surface lies a hidden secret. Whispers of an inept crown Prince are growing ever louder—intensified by the five year anniversary of the soulbond initiations.
Amidst scandalous whispers, Ciardis finds herself chosen to train for the Companion’s Guild. She leaves her home and sets off on a personal journey to become a Court Companion. A position she’d never thought possible for a lowly servant to obtain, she must prove that she has the skills to attract a Patron.
But she must master those skills quickly. If the legends are true, only Ciardis can harness the power to raise a Prince in an Imperial Court sworn to bring him down.
This sensational series debut melds intricate storylines with remarkable characters and unforgettable magic. Sworn To Raise is ideal for fans of Kristin Cashore, Michelle Sagara, and Maria Snyder.
My Review: Terah Edun left no stone unturned while writing Sworn to Raise the fist in The Courtlight series. The attention to detail was immaculate every description of color could be seen as if it were in HD. I was taken in by the way each scene seemed to flow seamlessly. I fell into this story and never wanted to leave. The characters were fascinating and intriguing. The main character Ciardis is a young woman who knows how to take care of her own self. She takes nothing from no one. She is a kind hearted soul who just needs a true friend. She finds herself in quite a few scrapes but somehow manages to make it through. As she enters the Companion's Guild she not sure she has what it takes to become a companion but, it doesn't stop her from trying. Ciardis has become one of my favorite book characters. The magic that rides along the pages in this book may rival some of those in another series about a young wizard coming into his own. I look forward to reading the rest of this series with excited anticipation.
