REVIEW: Blades of Magic by Terah Edun Audible review

Blades of Magic
Crown Service Series # 1
By- Terah Edun
Genre- YA Fantasy

It is not a peaceful time in the Algardis Empire. War is raging between the mages and seventeen-year-old Sara Fairchild will be right in the middle of it.

She just doesn't know it yet.

Sara is the daughter of a disgraced imperial commander, executed for desertion. Sara is also the best duelist and hand-to-hand combatant in Sandrin. She lives quietly with her family’s shame but when challenged about her family’s honor, her opponent inevitably loses.

On the night she finds out her father’s true last actions, she takes the Mercenary Guilds’ vows to serve in the emperor’s army. Using her quick wits and fierce fighting skills, she earns a spot in the first division.

There she discovers secrets the mages on both sides would prefer stay hidden. Dark enemies hunt her and soon it's not just Sara questioning the motivation behind this war.

While fighting mages, blackmailing merchants and discovering new friends, Sara comes across something she’s never had before - passion. The question is - can she fight for her empress against a mage who might unwittingly claim her heart?

This is year one of the Initiate Wars. Sara is hoping it doesn't become the year she dies.


Jaime's Review:
This is my very first audio book. I must admit, I was a little skeptical of it, but since I love Terah's work, I signed up for the tour. I am really glad I did. I thought it was very well narrated! The woman who narrated had a wonderful way of bringing the already amazing story to life. The was she did Ezekiel's character was spot on for me. The pacing of his voice, and gravelly. A really good job!!
