Blood Oath (Blood Oath #2)

By: Amanda McCrina

Publisher: Month9Books

Publication Date: June 19th, 2018

The aftermath of what happened in the capital has shaken Torien to the core. Battling self-doubt and bitterness, he must find his resolve as he is sent back to Tasso to quell a violent uprising on the Road.

But Torien will need more than resolve to navigate the deadly path before him. His troops are inexperienced and his new adjutant untrustworthy. A series of murder attempts leaves the whole camp on edge. As the threat of mutiny builds, the mission seems doomed before they even reach Tasso—and Torien is beginning to suspect it was meant that way. He and his men are being set up to fail.

With his best friend in the hands of the rebels, his commanding officer refusing to negotiate a peace treaty, and his own men ready to turn on him at any moment, Torien must decide once and for all how much he’s willing to sacrifice for an empire he no longer believes in.

Recipe for Blood Oath


1 large, fractious empire

1 paranoid, power-hungry new emperor

1 hot-headed young army officer determined to fight injustice

Intrigue, conspiracy, and plot twists to taste

1 handful raw heartbreak

1 dash hope


Over the course of a few chapters, slowly bring the empire to a simmer. Add the next two ingredients and bring to a boil, stirring in a pinch of intrigue and conspiracy and a sprinkle of plot twists. Let it all explode in your face, then garnish whatever’s left with a generous handful of heartbreak and the faintest dash of hope.
