Publisher's Summary

Seventeen-year-old Ciardis has grown up in poverty, a cleaner in a small vale on the outskirts of the empire. But beneath her empire's seemingly idyllic surface lies a hidden secret. Whispers of an inept crown Prince are growing ever louder - intensified by the five-year anniversary of the soulbond initiations.

Amidst scandalous whispers, Ciardis finds herself chosen to train for the Companions Guild. She leaves her home and sets off on a personal journey to become a Court Companion. A position she'd never thought possible for a lowly servant to obtain, she must prove that she has the skills to attract a Patron.

But she must master those skills quickly. If the legends are true, only Ciardis can harness the power to raise a Prince in an Imperial Court sworn to bring him down.

This sensational series debut melds intricate storylines with remarkable characters and unforgettable magic. Sworn to Raise is ideal for fans of Kristin Cashore, Michelle Sagara, and Maria Snyder.

    "Book might have been bearable without the narrator"

    Actually I listened to this book on Audible and I only read along about 2/3 of the time. I give the Audible 1-2 stars. First of course is the snotty, whinney voices the narrator assigned to everyone. She gave dialog the most unpleasant interpretations and made it unpleasnt to listen to. Worse than attitude was illiteracy. During the portion of the book I read along with I found more than 80 times when the narrator either mispronounced words, read the wrong word entirely, skipped words or added words. Sometimes there were as many as 3 unique errors on one page. Foals became fowls, poisons became potions, turned became took impassive became impressive. These are only a few of the misread words. Everyone makes a mistake here and there but his woman is extremely deficient in her basic reading skills and there apparently was no quality control done.

    In addition to the narrative problems there a several incidents when words and as much as a couple of sentences are cut out of the recording entirely. (On the Kindle App)

    "did not finish."

    I did not get this book finish because I just totally lost interest in the story. I had no attachment to the characters at all.
