Synopsis from Goodreads:
As humans begin to die in gruesome deaths, the Emperor dispatches the royal heir to the forests with the solution to the kith concerns.
With enemies closing ranks in Sandrin, Ciardis can little afford to leave the city’s nest of vipers to take on a new task. But she’s given no choice when her loyalty to the crown and courts are called into question.
To keep the Companions’ Guild happy and the favor of the Imperial Court, Ciardis will be tested in frightening new ways, especially when she’s faced with an obstacle that could risk the lives of her friends and the family she never thought she had.
This second novel continues the story of Ciardis Weathervane from Sworn To Raise.
The main character in this story is absolutely perfect for her role. She keeps growing with her role, even if it isn’t always willingly. I found my heart breaking for her while at the same time knowing that she’d make it thru. She’s also backed up by an amazingly diverse yet well-developed supporting cast that both help and hinder her. The well-rounded cast really helps to make this amazing story even better. One of the best parts about this cast is the fact that many of them are coming of age and are still growing into their own. You get to see them morph and change based on the situations that they face, and 9 times out of 10 they become better people because of it.
This story was absolutely breathtaking. It was a very intricate and multifaceted tale that definitely left me wanting more. I can’t wait to get back with the 3rd instalment in the series.
