About this ebook

Ciardis Weathervane witnessed the collapse of her empire’s system of governance. Because everything pivoted on the rule of one man. Now she must forge a new path. Through the madness. Through the chaos.

Still with the imperial palace in ruins, and the coalition between the nobles and the rebellion falling apart, there is no more time. No time to rule. No time to justify.

The god was here for retribution, and her triad would be forced to rise to the occasion or fall under its own bluster.

With an emperor dead, a prince heir uncrowned, and a people lost in the wilderness of death and destruction every which way they turn, Ciardis faces her most challenging assignment yet. Picking up the pieces. Mending the coalition. Winning the hearts and minds of Sebastian’s people. The people she could now call her own.

The heavens have come to earth. It remains to be seen if the earth will fall before its might.

The Wondering Thoughts of Ciardis Weathervane... I really love the Courtlight saga but much like Book 9, Sworn to War, the plot of the story gets lost and dragged out through the wondering thoughts of Ciardis Weathervane. Sworn to Quell picks up after the death of the Emperor where Sebastian, Ciardis, and Thanar must confer with Conclave members in order to find a strategic plan for their upcoming battle with the Blutgott God and watch out for spies. I was extremely disappointed that this book was a lot like Sworn to War where a lot of pages were used for inner dialogue vs interaction amongst the characters or involvement with the scene. I had a really hard time staying focused because the narrative would constantly get lost in the internal dialogue of Ciardis and over explain her thoughts, feelings, and assumptions without adding value to the ongoing plot. If this was cut out the book would have been extremely short. I feel as though the saga is getting dragged out and I'm unfortunately losing interest, which is unsettling, because I've invested so much time and love in these characters and world. I received an ARC for my honest opinion and review.

"If he came through this whole, Ciardis Weathervane had no doubt that Sebastian Athanos Algardis could withstand anything." This book picks up right from where Sworn to War left off. It is full of turmoil (both inner and between characters) the keeps you guessing. This book allows us to learn a lot more abut our triumvirate along with the ever forocious dragon ambassador. With Sworn to War I was a little dissapointed with the lack of action and a concrete plot line. But not with this book. Normally by the 10th book in a series you find that a lot of the plot is predictable. With Sworn to Quell you are constantly guessing what will happen next and Terah did a great job of throwing in curve balls. This is a great read that you will not regret.

This is in my mind a filler from the 9th book. It had so much commotion going on in the beginning. Getting reading for a war to come and not realizing that the God/Goddess was there right in front of them. I enjoyed reading it. But I am sick of it being drug out in the fact its always war. I like the earlier books that there was a break in something rather than something always happening. I also wouldn't mind hearing from Sebastian's mind or pov or Thanars pov. But this book just sets the mood for what's to come.. I cant wait until the next book comes out I hate the waiting part. I have fallen in love with the characters and cant wait to see how it all plays out.
