Forged in heartbreak, set in bone, cast in blood, carved in stone.The Curseprice
A thousand years will my curse reign, unless I have these six things:
The tears of a fairy from a wood so deep.
The fig of a vorgrath from his mate’s keep.
The scale of a selkie burnished gold.
The bone of a wood witch a century old.
The midnight sliver of a Shade Queen’s horn.
The sacrifice of two lovers torn.
Oath Taker Summary
After the Prince of Penryth saved her from captivity, seventeen-year-old Haven Ashwood spends her days protecting the kind prince and her nights secretly fighting the monsters outside the castle walls.
When one of those monsters kidnaps Prince Bell, Haven must ally with Archeron Halfbane and his band of immortals to rescue her friend. Her quest takes her deep into the domain of a warped and vicious queen where the rules are simple: break her curse or die.
Lost in a land of twisted magic and fabled creatures, Haven finds herself unprepared, not just for the feelings she develops for Archeron, but for the warring powers raging inside her. Her rare and forbidden type of magic may be their only hope . . . but mixing light and dark comes with a steep price.
Faced with impossible love, heartbreaking betrayals, and a queen intent on destroying the realm, only one thing remains certain. Haven must shatter the curse or it will devour everything she loves.
Oath Taker Review
I read this entire book in half of a day. I could not put it down! It was one of those that just sucks you right into the world. I love good high fantasy type read. It was high energy, super packed with action and character development, and just enough angst to swoon. It was a great journey for Haven, Bell and the other characters. The world building was excellent. There is only a hint of romantic emotions in this novel, I am still reading the next one because the slow burn romance feeds my soul.
I love Haven. I liked that she had a past, her story doesn’t start when the novel did, and her life wasn’t always about Bell. As she developed through the book, I fell in love with her even more. A girl who acts first and thinks second when it comes to doing what she believes in. Haven is young and her age shows. She is rebellious, stubborn and believes that her bestie, Prince Bellamy, and her will live happily ever after when he grows up to be the the king. She learns the hard way that saving Prince Bell is not as easy as she thought it would be. Her journey is difficult and she meets amazing people along the way. They each make their own impression on Haven. Some more than others.
The author does a fantastic job crafting a world that you instantly want to know more. By the end of it, I was dying and excited for the next book and started it right away. I hope we find out more about the different backgrounds and so much more of the possible romance, or love triangle maybe?.
