The Oathbreakers’ Guild by D. Wallace Peach

This is book two in Ms. Peach’s Oathbreakers' Guild cover Rose Shield quartet, and it begins with Catling, the apprenticeship influencer, one who affects how others around her feel–she can literally broadcast either love or pain onto them. But Catling has an ability every other influencer lacks–she can also provide a shield to protect others from the broadcast emotions of other influencers. It is this ability that brings her to the attention of the young queen–the new monarch wants Catling to keep her royal decisions free of outside influences.

This book has everything fans of epic fantasy look for–a three dimensional alternate setting with flawless world building, characters who act in line with their stated motivations, conflicted loyalties, battle scenes, and dramatic acts of derring do.

One of the best things about reading a D. Wallace Peach book is the author’s use of evocative language. Here is one sentence I loved: “Between two hummocks, fallen leaves littered a channel’s surface, an umber carpet suspended on swirling light.”

  3. Thanks so much, Cathleen. What a treat. Sometimes later books in a series don’t get reviewed much, so I appreciate the extra attention. I’m so thrilled that you enjoyed it. I have a few posts lined up but will reblog this one soon! I’m smilin’. 😀
