Published by Andon Press on March 12th 2013
Melaia sends Trevin into enemy territory to retrieve the third harp she needs to restore the stairway to heaven and free the angels trapped in a human world. But an assailant wants Trevin dead, an unknown traitor is passing information to the invading enemy army, and the Firstborn immortal has vowed to destroy all three harps, along with anyone who stands in his way.
Separated, Trevin and Melaia try to keep their faith, hope, and love for each other alive. From the land of Windwing horses to the mountaintop lookouts of Stargazers, from the blight-ridden fields of the Camrithian homeland to the night-dark caverns of the Under-Realm, they face the ultimate test: What are they willing to sacrifice to restore the stairway and save their world? Will they lay aside their love for each other? Will they give up their future together?
Review: The Eye of the Sword
I loved the first two in this series and loved when I found out the third book was coming out. I couldn't help but dive in and remember what had taken place so far. Melaia just needs the third harp in order to restore the stairway to heaven so that the angels may finally go home. The only problem is that an immortal being stands in her path, wanting to destroy any work she has done to bring the staircase back into existance.
I love the interwoven tales in these books. The mythology and story behind the angels really intrigues me and I find that this is one angel series I really love. Melaia is a strong female character who does not want to sit still and wait, even though her father wishes her to remain within the castle as the heir to the throne. Trevin, her love interest, is a brave soul, if not a bit over the top at times and sometimes makes the mistake of underestimating Melaia.
Final Verdict: Overall, I thought this was a beautiful novel that has some amazing characters and a plot that will keep you reading until the very end.
