Overview

In the heart of the Imperial Court, Ciardis Weathervane knows that death is coming for the empire. With her friends by her side and the new triad of Weathervanes, she's in a race against time to convince the court of the same.

She must do her best to unite kith, mages, nobles and merchants under one cause - the fight to prevent a war. Soon she is forced to keep a secret that could exonerate her mother of the Empress's death, and is always one move away from stepping into diplomatic chaos.

Throw in a daemoni prince who is showing interest in the youngest Weathervane, a jealous prince heir, and a irritated dragon with her own designs on Ciardis, and you have an imperial court in turmoil.

This fourth novel continues the story of Ciardis Weathervane from Sworn To Conflict.

Sworn to Secrecy (Courtlight #4) by Terah Edun Ciardis Weathervane and allies are trying to stop the god of destruction, the blutgott, from emerging and need to unite the empire.   Certainly, things can’t be just that simple they also have to worry about Lillian Weathervane’s murder trial.  Oh and then of course the Emperor is blackmailing Ciardis.  Wait, the daemoni prince, Thanar,  is showing interest in Ciardis causing the prince heir,  Sebastian, to become jealous triggering misunderstanding among their group.  Needless to say there is just a bit going on in Sworn to Secrecy. Terah Edun created another suspenseful book in the Courtlight Series.  Clardis just does not get the opportunity  to rest, poor girl.  Sebastian even commented on how they never get a chance to be alone.  So true.  They just have too much action going on in their lives.  That will, by the way, keep you on the edge of your seat. Ciardis has a good heart and trust people to a fault.  Although she definitely has no problem protecting her friends. I’m not sure what I think of the daemoni prince.  It’s kind of a love hate.  Thanar’s got the bad-boy  thing down.  He seemed to always be planning mischief.  There is something about him that makes you want to like him even if you can’t trust him.  Then there is the prince heir Sebastian.  I’ve always liked Sebastian.  Ciardis and Sebastian are good together, making them stronger. Sworn to Secrecy ends in a cliff hanger that makes me want to read the following book – now; no pressure to get that done ASAP, Terah (hint-hint).  I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next in book five,  Sworn To Defiance.  ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

I loved reading these books with all the excitement of a movie. Must read.

Ciardis Weathervane is back from the North and things couldn't be more out of whack for her. Thanar is showing how he can be and we don't really know what he wants. Does he wasn't his God to win? Does he want to take Ciardis from Sebastian? Sebastian shows his age in this one but we get to see that he could be a great ruler. Ciardis has a lot going on in Sworn to Secrecy that I don't know how she never had a major break down. It was an enjoyable read and I love the dynamics of all the characters together. I personally cannot wait for more. You can follow Terah Edun(which is the author) on twitter @TEdunWrites and follow my reviews on twitter @LakeBookReviews

I love how Edun’s writing style never changes but the storyline never stays the same.  This brilliant fantasy world and the players within continue to evolve from story to story, never leaving the reader bored.  At the same time, Edun’s descriptions remain vivid and visual.  I feel like I’ve walked through the world of Sworn to Secrecy.  Edun is also a master at writing intrigue.  The undercurrents throughout this novel are so pronounced that you cannot fail to feel them permeating the storyline as a whole.  It drew me in like no other, trying to unravel the strands and determine who was working with whom.  This extra element on top of the already brilliantly crafted storyline puts this story in the realm of unforgettable.   Edun doesn’t simply develop her characters as individuals, but she created entire races and new species throughout her novel.  We really get to know the ins and outs of the various races with this novel.  I really enjoy how she develops this.  It is not through long narratives, but rather through their actions and reactions during certain events.  Individual characters are developed in a similar manner, but on a much larger and more personal scale.  Also, the dialogue in this novel is always natural.  Even the royals, who are all haughty, still speak like real people rather than a textbook.   Overall, this was a fantastic read.  Edun continues on with Ciardis’ story while leaving her open to future instalments of the series.  Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

DNF - 0 stars Where I stopped reading: Location 439 of 1616 on the e-Book app of my iPhone. Why I stopped reading: I’ve been wishy-washy about this series from the beginning, but after a few hundred e-pages of Book Four I realized that despite three books full of magic, war, death, torture, mythical beings, and even a little love, Ciardis hasn’t evolved.  At all.  Not even a little bit.  She’s still the same flippant teenager she was in Book One, and that bums me out.  I was hoping for some serious character development in Book Three and it wasn’t there.  Book Four just felt like more of the same, and I don’t want to waste anyone’s time (my own included) writing the same review over again. What others have rated this book: According to Goodreads, the average rating for Sworn to Secrecy is 4.62. It looks like a majority of readers gave this book 5 stars. There were 9 5-star reviews on Amazon. At Barnes & Noble, the majority of the reviews were 4 stars. Just because I didn’t finish this book doesn’t mean you won’t.
