Eye of the Sword by Karyn Henley (Published by Waterbrook Press, March 13, 2012)
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?
I really enjoyed Breath of Angel, the first book in this series, and I can't wait to read book 2. This series is very different from most YA angel books, the books are high fantasy set in a medieval society.
