About this ebook

~A breathtaking launch of this adventure fantasy series~

Ciardis Weathervane, a girl with no future, and Sebastian Algardis, the one who will change it all, have found a challenge in this phenomenally unique and captivating tale.

They were never meant to break the chains binding his powers, but when they upended the imperial courts they found their powers were greater than any foretold.

Together they'll shatter that empire. And perhaps help it rise again.

"One world you don't want to miss out on!"

- City Of Books ★★★★★

Ciardis Weathervane has one simple rule – win the first fight, then move on to the next. But she’s finding out that the citizens of Sandrin have other plans in mind.

When she returns to the imperial capital city, she finds that nothing is as she left it. Only a week has passed and yet chaos reins. Vana Cloudbreaker has been attacked and surprisingly, she did not come out on top.

The woman Ciardis thought was invincible stands a broken shell of what she once was and Ciardis isn’t entirely sure what or who was the cause of the fabled assassin’s derailment.

To top it off, the revolutionary party is determined to make itself known, starting with a call for an impostor emperor to vacate his throne. They couldn’t have chosen a worse time to start their revolution. Right when the noble societies at court are ready to throw their support to the prince heir and princess heir-in-waiting against the blutgott itself.

Now revolutionaries and courtiers are at odds, but even stranger—the duchess of Carne stands among the revolutionary guard. Ciardis is faced with the predicament of saving an empire and sacrificing a revolution, all while facing down a clock that has run out of the time.

The gods are here and there’s nothing that she nor anyone else can do to stop them.

Another exciting continuation of Ciardis's story - Sovereignty really moves several crucial plot lines forward, picks up some key old threads, and introduces new elements that will either thrill or horrifying you, depending on where your sympathies lie. The book ends satisfyingly, but sets up the next book in such a way that will leave you eagerly anticipating the next installment. Ciardis's character development is great to see - she is the same impulsive, feisty girl you love, but she is maturing into a feisty woman <3 You'll learn more about the emperor, the dragons, the Shadow Council, and the rebellion. There are some interesting developments in the romance department, though anyone hoping for the story to take a leap into the NA or explicit Romance genre will be left frustrated (I'm still holding out hope for some steamy Thanar scenes someday!) I found the description of a certain magical event to be confusingly written at first, and there were some proofreading errors (though not to a level that detracts from enjoying the story) that prompted me to give 4 stars instead of 5, but I highly recommend this book. Current fans will love it, though I would suggest new readers to start from the beginning of the series, because this book picks up right where the previous kne left off, not wasting time rehashing past episodes. ***I received a free advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***

This book in the series had a VERY slow start, but picked up in the last few chapters. Overall, it didn't hold my interest as the other books in the series did, however. This was the first one that I actually stopped reading for over 4 months before returning to it. The previous ones I pretty much couldn't put down.

If you have been following Ciardis on her journey, this is a must read. And Terah Edun picks up the pace to keep you turning the pages. There are lots of twists and turns that were surprising! And the end sets you up for the next instalment with a feeling of determination! Looking forward to the next book!
