Book Info-

Title- Sworn to Raise
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

I loved this series from the moment I started reading!!   It is another one of those series that once I started reading I could not stop.  The twists, turns, and intrigue of the plot leave you breathless.  Nice change from the typical YA/Paranormal books already out there as well.  There is so much I want to say but can't, as this is a spoiler free site.  Pretty in Pink gives this book 5 stars!

Come back tomorrow for the next book in the series Sworn to Transfer, and don't forget to enter the giveaway and join in the facebook event.
