Brittle Bonds (Guadel Chronicles #3) by Dean Murray
Add to Goodreads
Va'del has saved his people for the second time in as many months. This time he's determined to take what is rightfully his and marry Jain, but not everyone is happy with his accomplishments. Old enemies are preparing to see to it that Va'del and Jain never return home. The coming treachery will do more than threaten Va'del and Jain's lives. It will test their devotion to each other and start them down a path that could lead to the overthrow of an entire civilization.
4 out of 5 (very good)
This book starts off in the same vein as the other - Va'del is still not trusted by most of the Guadel but those that do trust him also respect him. Va'ma takes Va'del into his confidence and tells him of his fears that the Capital is not as safe as everyone thinks. They make plans to test out their welcome and make contingency plans just in case. It's a good job they do because then this story takes an unexpected twist. Va'del and Jain find themselves in a world unknown to them and have to learn how to fit in quickly as their survival depends on it. The layers upon layers of this story makes it at once intricate, rich and detailed whilst still being an easy read. This story will draw you into it and take you along for the ride. Highly recommended for all Fantasy fans. Brittle Bonds reaches a natural conclusion that will still leave you wanting more. Luckily for me, I have Shattered Ties ready to go (review to follow).

Dean Murray is a prolific author with more than 28 titles across multiple pen names and more than 470,000 copies of his work currently in circulation.
Dean started reading seriously in the second grade due to a competition and has spent most of the subsequent three decades lost in other people’s worlds.
Things worsened, or improved depending on your point of view, when he first started experimenting with writing while finishing up his accounting degree. These days Dean has a wonderful wife and two lovely daughters to keep him rather more grounded, but the idea of bringing others along with him as he meets interesting new people in universes nobody else has ever seen tends to drag him back to his computer on a fairly regular basis.
