Sworn to Raise by Terah Edun
I have read all 3 in this series and with each one I couldn’t wait to get to the next in the series.
Sworn to Raise was a really good book. I thoroughly enjoyed this series. It is hard for me to write about just the first one when all I want to do is talk about the whole series!
We follow Ciardis through her life: a laundress, a trainee for the Companions’ Guild, and finding herself as a Weathervane.
Now as a Companion trainee, she now has suitors waiting for her. It was more than she imagined her life could be.
Except when she ends up in a world that she never knew existed. In that world with her is a Prince. Prince of lies, one who she never would have expected. Unfortunately, he needs help, her help.
What is a girl to do now?!
I def recommend this book!
Stay tuned for my review tomorrow of the 2nd book:
