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.
My Review: The plot thickens and as I began reading book three I realized that this was not going to be a happily ever after. Ciardis is thrown into the never ending war of the north and unaware of what or whom she is fighting for. She quickly discovers the path of betrayal that leads further back then even Ciardis was aware of. Ciardis is left to figure it out pretty much on her own as the lies and secrets that have been told to her or with held start to surface she soon discovers that she must chose between her heart and her family she never new. Sworn to Conflict is a slammed down hike up your britches and either stand and fight or put your head in between your legs and kiss your bum goodbye. Forget the mushy cutesy love story as this book has no room for that even though Ciardis is torn between her heart and family she keeps rolling with the punches as war rages on and leaves her to be the deciding factor in how or if the war ends. I know that book three can not be the end of this series. I am completely hopeful that there is at least one more book to this series. I am hooked and enamored with The Courtlight series.

My Review: I have become addicted to this series. Ciardis and all the characters are so very well written. Every adventure jumps off the page and just grabs your attention. There was no way I could put it down. By the time comes around Sworn to Secrecy we have seen Ciardis grow in so many ways she as become a more powerful and confident character. I love her need to learn and how cunning and secretive she has become. As the plot thickens in this the fourth book of The Court Light Series the adventures and secrets also reveal answers to some secrets yet still are fast paced, nail biting, adventure. I believe I can honestly that The Court Light Series has become one of my all time fantasy book favorites. I personally think that Terah Edun has written a very popular series and I am desperately hoping for at least a one more book to this series as the end of this one will leave you gaping for air totally jaw dropping!
