I remember buying a Storybundle which included the first three books of the Courtlight series. I thought I’d check out the first but I couldn’t stop there. I finished all three in just a few days, each book getting better and better. Ever since Terah Edun has been on my radar. If you like gripping fantasy worlds and a strong female protagonist, you’ll like this series. Also, the first book is free!
Terah Edun is a young adult fantasy writer born and raised in the Atlanta metropolitan area, who transplanted to the Northeast region for college, and has spent years living abroad in South Sudan and Morocco. She writes the stories that she always loved to read as a young girl.
She prefers tales of adventure, magic, fellowship and courtship in other words fantasy of both the contemporary and high variety. Terah’s series include Courtlight, Crown Service, and Birthright. She has sold over 500,000 copies of her books and is proud to be a young adult author.
Sworn To Raise
Read my review:
Sworn to Raise | Sworn to Transfer | Sworn to Conflict
Seventeen-year-old Ciardis Vane grew up in a small village on the edge of the realm. Beautiful, destitute, and desperate she is looking to get out anyway she can. She has worked her whole life as a laundress with no hope of escaping her fate anytime soon.
But then her life changes when a strange woman appears with the key to Ciardis’s escape. With an offer to take her to the capital and a life she’d never dreamed of, it’s hard to resist. There’s only one catch.
She wants Ciardis to become a companion: she’ll be required to wear expensive dresses, learn to conduct suitable magic, educate herself on court proclivities, and – in the end – chain herself to the highest bidder. A Patron for life.
Ciardis knows that this is her one opportunity to change her life.
But what she does not know is that she will soon be at the heart of intrigues and power struggles, and that her new life in luxury demands a high price, perhaps even the life of a prince.
