Eye of the Sword by Karyn Henley

The second book in the Angelaeon Circle proves to be as good as, if not better, than the first.  After proving his allegiance at the end of the last book, Trevin is made a Captain by the Camrithian King.  He is then sent on a quest to find the other two harps, the missing Comains, and a sign for the future from a supposed oracle in the north.  He also wishes to prove himself worthy to marry a certain princess with whom he is in love.  The problem is that he has to leave her, while on his quest, to the wooing of a murderous Dregmoorian Prince.  Many trials come Trevin's way including being accused of murder, guilt from the past, and a nightmare that haunts his sleep.  Can he stand up to the challenge when he is faced with his past and tested for what is really in his heart?

The nonstop action and relentless twists and turns keep you hooked all the way.  I never wanted to put it down and spent late hours of the night reading it.  The unique characters make you fall in love with them as they go through their adventures, trials, and revelations.  Karyn has done a wonderful job creating a colorful world with memorable characters.  I have to say, Ollena is one of my favorite characters because of her strong tomboyish personality.  The main point of learning to forgive yourself is a very powerful message in this story, also.  I would recommend this to Christian fantasy readers.  Both teens and adults will love this powerful story of love, forgiveness, and overcoming.  I recommend reading Breath of Angel (book one) before you read Eye of the Sword, though.

(I received this book for free from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review and this opinion is my own.)
