Eye of the Sword by Karyn Henley

Read chapter one here.
Goodreads | Amazon
Where angels walk the ground and the future is told in song, does a man of low rank have a chance at love with a princess?
In Camrithia, a land of shadows and mystical secrets, Trevin lives to serve King Laetham. But his heart belongs to the princess, Melaia. When the King sends Trevin on on a dangerous quest to find the missing comains – captains in the king’s army – he must leave Melaia to the advances of a swaggering Dregmoorian prince. 
Challenged to prove his worth, Trevin throws himself into his quest. Striving to prove his love, Trevin undertakes a second mission – find the harps Melaia seeks in order to restore the stairway to heaven. Through fire caves, rogue winds, and murderous threats, Trevin remains steadfastly dedicated to his quest – even when he is falsely accused of a heinous crime. As Trevin’s time runs out, he realizes he must face the shame and horror of his own past and the nightmare that has come to life. Will he have the courage to finish what he has started?

This second foray into the mythical land of Camrithia, where humans find themselves walking among angels and half-angels, is nothing less than an entertaining and addicting read. (The Angelaeon Circle series begins with Breath of Angel.) With the tasteful mix of adventure – feats of strength, epic battles, daunting challenges – and endearing romance, I could not stop reading until the end. I would definitely recommend this novel to anyone with an interest in the genre of fantasy, though I would advise reading Breath of Angel first, since the knowledge of the back story helps to understand the plot.

I would like to thank WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for providing me with a copy of this novel. I greatly appreciate the opportunity to read and honestly review it.
