I can’t thank everyone enough for supporting me and the amazing teens of my world! Now…onto the reveal. First, let’s check out the blurb for Sworn to Raise:

SWORN TO RAISE (Courtlight Series, Book One)

Seventeen-year-old Ciardis has grown up in poverty, a cleaner in a small vale on the outskirts of the kingdom. But beneath her kingdom’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 Companion’s 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.

And now, the cover reveal. But before I do I NEED to give so much credit to my amazing cover artist. Sworn to Raise was designed by the brilliant Kalen O’Donnell. If you’re in the market, be sure to hire her! Now, a drum roll please…
