Instead she's spending her engagement on the lawless road to the western lands. Now with the help of a guide from a tribe of seers, Ciardis is traveling to the ancient city of Kifar. Rumored to hold the only device capable of stopping the blutgott, Ciardis, Sebastian and Thanar must break a half-century's old quarantine in order to enter the fabled city.But the collar of Diamis is not the only thing they seek. The princess heir's pet wyvern lurks in wait for them and the emperor, who has done everything short of challenging the new triad of Algardis outright, wants its head on a platter upon their return.If the unscrupulous bandits don't make short work of them, Ciardis knows that when they return she and Sebastian will have to a face and unmask the man who has stolen the imperial throne. The only question that remains...will that be before or after they're forced to battle a god?...

    Oh, oh, oh! This was such a great, fantastic book! Things were complicated, and they hurt, but hopefully they worked to a better place through this book! And jaw-dropping ending, which is worse for me, because the 7th book isn't out yet!

    Book Six of Courtlight continues the drama and characters that we have grown to love.So, I won't bore you all with character details or bits and pieces on the major trinity. If you've been reading Courtlight, then you know the three major names and the secondary characters as well. So I won't go through the introductions of everyone and assume you know them by now. If not...maybe you should check out a different review. I have reviewed them all so far, so feel free to check mine! :)Anyway, this picks off almost immediatly after Sworn to Defiance. Ciardis Weathervane is struggling to balance out the bond she has formed with her two significant males - Imperial Heir Sebastian and Kith daemoni Thanar both of whom she is soulbonded to. One soulbond is rare enough but two of them is starting to strain Ciardis' abilities. Given that Sebastian and Thanar both want her attentions and cannot manage to agree on much doesn't really help matters. The struggle within the trinity is the major character conflict within the story and Edun does a fantastic job of using it to add stress to the characters and allow for growth as the three explore their limitations and understandings of each other.Outside of the three is the mission to the fabled city of Kifar - a city lost to the empire in that no one goes there anymore. It doesn't help matters that it is on the other side of a desert and that, within that desert are marauders that, you know, murder imperial citizens to keep them away from the city (or so it appears). Add in a rather irate dragon and the fact that the 'Emperor' wants Sebastian dead (or so it is speculated) and you have a setup for a good plot.And Vana has a major appearance in the story. As I said in a previous review, I really like Vana and the growth she causes in Ciardis. Sworn to Ascension is no exception to that rule. Vana provides some excellent insight for Ciardis to consider AND moves forward several elements from previous books that were left unresolved. And, you know, she gets to be Vana and that's just awesome.It is clear that Edun has some very detailed ideas of where she wants her characters to be within the plot and the events. Furthermore, it is also clear that she is having a *lot* of fun playing with her characters and allowing them to bounce off each other in unique and interesting ways. The main trinity (Ciardis,Sebastian, and Thanar) are all given excellent opportunities to grow by the secondary character trinity of Terris, Christian, and Raisa. The interactions within the characters are more complex than in previous novels, but it doesn't feel forced. Terah Edun seems to have a real talent for characterization and interaction and it is in full force for Sworn to Ascension. I often didn't realize how far I had read in the book until after I turned off the app to go to bed - that's how much fun I was having with the characters.The only major flaw in the story is that it doesn't feel like much is resolved. The conclusion is a bit weak in that it doesn't feel like there was any major progress on the 'outside' conflict related to Kifar. We get several major details dropped (I won't spoil them) and then a big ol' smasher and the story ends. It practically screams 'SEQUEL COMING' - which isn't necessarily a bad thing but it falls under the flaw category because it does feel more 'hanging' than any of the previous Courtlight novels.Still, Sworn to Ascension is an excellent book with some amazing character writing. I was swept up in to it and lost track of time so well that I had to brew 3 cups of tea and only drank one of them hot - I'd forgotten the other two times. Grab this baby up.Characters – 5.5/5Plot: 5/5Action: 3/5Value: 5/5Writing: 5/5Total Rating: 4.7/5

    Review forthcoming on http://a-reader-lives-a-thousand-live...Title: Sworn to AscensionSeries: Courtlight (#6)Author: Terah EdunFrom: AmazonGenre: FantasyRelease Date: 15th January 2015Challenges: 2015 New Release Challenge, 2015 Prequel & Sequel Challenge (2 points)Links: Goodreads - AmazonWhen she got engaged to Prince Heir Sebastian, the last thing Lady Companion Ciardis Weathervane expected to be doing was to be making her way towards the isolated and abandoned desert city of Kifar. But now, along with two irrate bond mates, she has to do just that, along with learning who she can and can't trust...Ciardis has come on such a journey from the first book, and I have loved every minute of it so far (though I do need more! I can't bear for this story to finish there!). The ending was at a good place (or else the book would have to be massive!) but I forgot how quickly and easily I become embroiled in the land of Algardis and the characters there.The bond between Ciardis and Sebastian, as well as the bond between Ciardis and Thanar has progressed, now to a point where they all seem to have a bit more control over it than before, even if they are using that control to shut each other out. This creates interesting dynamics between the three of them, and I honestly have no idea how the whole thing will work out.While Sebastian and Ciardis' relationship is fairly stable (they did just get engaged after all) the relationship between Ciardis and Thanar remains some what strained and the pair of them have had to work it out a bit more than first thought. Add into that the relationship between Thanar and Sebastian, which did grow in this book but was outright antagonistic to start with, it creates an interesting atmosphere. But as I said all of their relationships grew, though it was gradual and I felt like it was the natural progression for them.What I love about this series is that there isn't just a central partnership between two characters, but rather a range of relationships, friendships and allies explored. Ciardis has a different relationship with each of the characters, and each has a unique and realistic feel to it (ignoring the fact that they can all perform magic of some kind of course!)I loved diving back into the world of Algardis and can't wait for more!

    My first thoughts of finishing this book are. Really it ends there!! Terah Edun had taken this series to a new place and the relationships with it. But just a heads up nothing is really answered. I understand why because it is getting there bit I would have still liked a little bit answered just not everything. I know this is veg but it is because I do not give spoilers when reviewing a book. I still loved it without having my questions answered. It kept me intrigued threw out the whole story. I hope everything will work out for the three tired together. Yes they start on their journey with few people but Ciardis was having a lot of problems, mostly emotional ones. She has some great friends or allies as everyone keeps saying even her. Things happen that you wouldn't think and certain people say/act like children. However, towards the end of the book it defend that they are going to work together. Still not were they all need to be to save the empire. My last thought on the book still is really it end there! I guess I just have to wait for the next book to come out to see into the city and hope none die there.

    I love these stories, I just wish Sworn to Ascension was longer. Of course, I wish the stories would never end, but with this particular book I felt the end came too fast. Like I was unprepared. One minute I am wrapped up in the story and next minute it was over. That is my only complaint with this book and that may be my own wish to keep on reading. As always though, I continue to become even more enthralled with the Courtlight Series with every passing book and I am eagerly awaiting the next installment.

    This story is getting progressively more monotonous with filler that doesn't push the plot or bring new ideas at a rate that is enjoyable. It's not vague in a way that has me on the edge of my seat. It is vague in the way that they are trying to elongate something that should be done now. I'm tempted to just read plot summaries for remaining books so I know how it ends instead of wasting my time on reading these filler books.

    So frustrated. The proof editor did a very poor job catching grammatical errors in this book. All of the previous books in the series had some grammatical errors, but this one has so many that I've had to read some paragraphs several times to just to figure out what the author meant to say. Also, I've read about 86% of this one and just have to put it down. Too much confusion and the story line does not match up to what the "teaser" said it would be about. Very disappointed.

    Sworn to ascension was good. But I saw a few annoying grammar/spelling errors, which really annoyed me as I had been waiting for this book since summer. The fact that the group didn't even get to Kifar annoyed me too. The book seemed much shorter than those previous, also.All in all, I knocked off a point because of the things I mentioned. The other books in this series were much better.

    Continuing the StoryThis is a continuation of the series, if your reading the Courtlight series you will you will enjoy their continuing story. Do not start the series with this one but I would recommend this series and author to all that enjoy an adventure with a mixed up heroine with remarkable powers that she is just learning about. You also have demons, dragons,and would be lovers. I will be going on with the story with #7.

    these books are getting too short. this one covered what? all of 3 days and got us now where really in the storyline, merely from one location to the next with about 3 or 4 details that seemed crucial to the timeline. this book is unworthy to be included as a sequential book, it would have been better served as book 5.5. Though an avid follower of this series, I am thoroughly disappointed with the book. it was not worth the long wait.

    Not a fan of the way this one started with more pulling among the threesome -- all pretty much full of teenage-style angst.We've spent the past couple of books talking about Kifar, and now we're finally here, not without several different issues.Felt like a more abrupt end than others in the series (and they're known for endings that aren't ends to a story arc).These books really should be viewed as installments of a serial.

    I'm a little disappointed it didn't end here and I didn't see an indication of release date for the next one. Additionally, some of the immature behaviors by the three with the soul bond annoyed me. If I were any of them, I'd get rid of the others. Still I enjoyed the book and want to read the next one. These are the reasons I gave this book 4 stars.

    I was disappointed that 6 books in there is still nothing resolved. Their relationship is still on the rocks, they are at the brink of war and are rushing to save a city from being destroyed. At the end of book 6 there is still way too many loose ends left open.

    My biggest complaint is that nothing actually happens until 60% into this book other than the main character complaining about her love triangle. Ignoring that, the rest of the book is a pretty good first act. However, there are no other acts in the rest of the book. It just ends.

    A fun read with excellent character development. I hated to finish it because I liked the story line and characters. The only weakness that bugged me was too much of the story conflict was just in the protagonist's head.
