Sworn to Conflict (Courtlight Series #3) by Terah Edun

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.

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.

So we left off in book two with Ciardis Weathervane teleporting workout her friends after fighting the Shadow Mage. She travels far and ends up in the North. Now much could be said and details could be given of all Ciardis goes through in the North. We meet new kiths and someone that you would think is special but is very much so. Ciardis and Sebastian don't come to terms on anything. We will have to wait on this for a bit . However, she does find out more about her family but we have to wait to see what will happen with them. Terah is a visual writer, my meaning is that she creates a world we can see. She knocks out these treasures quickly that we are up to 10 out of 12 (I'm hoping for more than 12 personally)novels in the Courtlight series. I recommend following her at @TEdunWrites on twitter, @terahedunon instagram

I keep falling further and further in love with this series with each new novel.  Edun is an artistically descriptive author.  She continues to weave this enchanting world through sublime descriptions.  Her fantastic storytelling keeps her readers entranced throughout.  She intertwines moments of intrigue with breathtakingly intense battle scenes into an unforgettable whole.  This was definitely a fluid, fast paced read that I couldn’t put down. Ciardis and Sebastian are really coming into their own with this instalment.  You can see them beginning to grow up and take responsibility for things.  Watching them interact with each other, and the other characters in this story, really let you get to know them on an intimate level.  I also really enjoy the many new character that Edun introduces us to throughout.  We get to meet these characters gradually, getting to know them as the main characters do, allowing for a natural flow that doesn’t disrupt the storyline.   As a whole this was a phenomenal addition to the series.  Edun has created a completely magical world, and not simply because many of her characters are imbued with magic.  You can feel the magic leaching from the story and into yourself as you read.   Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

In this third installment the reader catches up with Ciardis, magically drained from her battle with the Shadowman, placed in a Mage's sleep by General Barnaren's Healer in the Northern territory. The Ciardis who awakens is determined to become a diplomat in the war; she sees injustice in the camp and wants to use her position as the Prince's Companion to act with integrity. Her relationship with Sebastian appears to be more defined in this story. He is more protective of her and openly tactile and though Ciardis is angry with him for several of his actions, she admits her emotions are confused. Sworn To Conflict has a plot which is full of unpredictability and darkness; admissions are made, and new characters are explored. I admit that although I was a little disappointed by Terah Edun's choice of ending it also leaves me yearning for Sworn To Secrecy.

Another great transition from one book to another for Terah Edun! Ciardis Weathervane had so much happen to her in Sworn to Transfer from betrayal to blossoming love that the third book had to jump right back into the action but also provide some sort of way to get Ciardis back into the action with all the characters that I loved from the first two books since she was so removed from them. Having her be in a coma solved a lot of that! Being a fantasy book has it's advantageous ;) Ciardis is thrown into wars and conflicts that seem so far over her head, until she shows you what kind of character she really is and that she has a back bone. I loved that we connected with her long lost family and that gave a sort of contrast to her life, from the beginning of the series where she is strong because of being alone and having to survive to the present were she not only is she falling in love but learning to have a family member to love. She maintained her innocent nature but also is turning into quite the young woman and I am happy to watch this progress unfold.  The story is thickening nicely as well. There is so much going on in this world that it seems difficult that we are going to wrap so many story lines up, but I am very interested to see where we are going. As we got to know more about the conflicts within the kingdom, I thought this installment did a very good job of maintaining a clear picture about what these conflicts are and where they are as well. That can be difficult in a high fantasy novel, and can sometimes get muddled with so much information. Not so in Sworn to Conflict and I thought it paced itself nicely. Ciardis Weathervane is the kind of heroine that I can picture myself following into the biggest, scariest battle to end to the world.....and that might be where we are headed here!

I liked it. Did I enjoy this book: This is the third book in the series.  It’s much like the second, in that there are a ton of new characters, a generous number of new story arcs, and a more serious tone.  I’m reminded of The Hunger Games books: the first installment only vaguely hinted at the darkness to follow.  So, yes, I liked it.  I’ve still got the same issues with Edun’s writing, but yet again she’s managed to dream up a story that keeps me reading. Would I recommend it: If you’ve made it this far in the series it’s unlikely you’ll need me to tell you to keep reading, but, just for the record:  Keep Reading. Will I read it again: Noooo, but I’m happily awaiting Sworn to Secrecy. As reviewed by Melissa at Every Free Chance Book Reviews. (I received a copy of this book for review purposes.)

This story left off right where the last book ended, with Ciardis in the middle of the battlefields of the North, and once again I was whisked away on a magical adventure that saw her fighting her own battle with love and trust. This story was shrouded in mystery, and many questions came into play. Was the empire as noble as it made out to be or was there a sinister plot to bring down the kith of the North, using them for a darker purpose. As Ciardis slowly unraveled the truth behind the war, so many questions surrounding her mother's death were answered. There were quite a few twists and turns within the story and a few major surprises which kept the tension and excitement of this book at the max. The choices Ciardis had to make were not easy. She had to choose between her loyalty to her family or to the boy she shared a deep bond with, the boy she loved. I'm not sure how things will pan out for her and Sebastian after all is said and done, but he also had a duty to his people, to his empire, and I can only hope that Ciardis has learned enough about him to trust in his kindness. The end of this book can only mean more action and adventure lies in store for Ciardis. Will her family's appearance in the Court result in more chaos, or will the past finally be laid to rest? I look forward to reading more from this series.
