This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
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.
Sworn to Quell

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.
I love this series and love the characters! story is very thought out and a lot of things were answered in this book!
