ABOUT THE BOOKPaperback and eBook, 256 pages
Young Adult Fantasy

To prove himself worthy of a princess, Trevin must first defeat the terror of his past.
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 a dangerous quest to find the missing comains, he must leave Melaia to the advances of a swaggering Dregmoorian prince.
Challenged to prove his worth, Trevin throws himself into his quest.
Challenged 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 terror-dream that has come to life. Will he have the courage to finish what he has started?
Eye of the Sword did not disappoint by any means. The romantic interest between Melaia and Trevin deepens and brings on a whole new set of issues to work through. The author certainly knows how to get her characters in situations that seem like there's no way out and rescue them. With 256 pages packed full of unexpected twists, turns, and adventures. Eye of the Sword gets my highest review!
