  • Incredible fantasy world

    "All good stories are true. Even if they were completely made up by the storyteller, there is something in them that resonates with us. Courage. Love. Self-sacrifice. The storyteller makes his story real through the telling." I have loved Carla Laureano's contemporary romance for quite a few years now but this entry into her fantasy world has totally blown my socks off. What an engaging and enchanting tale of duty, honor, self-sacrifice, justice and mercy, faith, and undying love! My meager words in this review cannot do justice to what a great beginning to the Song of Seare trilogy this book is. The setting that is influenced by Celtic lore and medieval times is totally engrossing and you will feel like you are right in the middle of Conor's training and Aine's work in the battlefront. The author is clear in her notes at the end of the book that this series is not an allegory so that is something to keep in mind as you read the book. The Isle of Seare is meticulously and intricately built and though there are many different words and ways of life on the Isle, I had no trouble following along as the four kingdoms on the Isle are introduced. The history of faith and religion on the Isle is fascinating, as is the Fireian Brotherhood and what it stands for. Conor is an unlikely hero at the beginning of the book, with his book knowledge, unrivaled musical ability, and humility; but these qualities shape the hero that the Isle so desperately needs. Aine is also an unlikely heroine at start, with her frail countenance and fearful heart. Experience in both triumph and failure matures them as they become engaged in a war against evil to save their beloved home and people. The cast of secondary characters is fantastic and I'm hoping for their return in the next book. There is a lot of magic involved - dark magic that is wielded by evil but also good magic gifted by the Creator that comes in multiple forms and helps dispel the darkness. There is also plenty of betrayal and twists to the plot that will have you gasping. It is such a delightful book that every fantasy lover should read! I received a copy of the book from the author and Enclave Publishing and was under no obligation to post a positive review. All comments and opinions are solely my own.

  • Fell in love with this book!

    Oath of the Brotherhood is a must read for all lovers of fantasy and historical fiction. I always knew Carla Laureano was a talented writer, but this exemplifies her giftedness! Even the names given throughout the book convey an other-world beauty. The story portrays Light vs darkness in multiple ways that captured my attention and senses. I love the idea presented, that different can be dangerous, and how this leads to mistrust and modes of protection to preserve what is seen as right. Aine and Conor will transport you through a magical realm in an effort to stand up for the Light and to see others released from the power of darkness. I cannot recommend this highly enough. I received a complimentary copy from the author and all opinions expressed are my own, freely given.
