Review: Skysworn (Cradle #4) by Will Wight

MY RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

19/50 – 2022 Goodreads Challenge

With his duel fast approaching, Lindon is locked away in prison.
As a Blackflame, he is too dangerous to remain free. The Skysworn, protectors of the Empire, have imprisoned him to keep him under control until the day of his promised fight arrives.
When it does, he will face Jai Long. But a new danger approaches the Empire, closer every day. Only the Skysworn stand between the people of the land and total annihilation.
And Lindon may be forced to join them.

Travis Baldree continues to put on one hell of a performance narrating this story, the story is great, but his narration really delivers this home. This series is so addictive and Skysworn is such a fantastic continuation, and I might even say that this has even topped Blackflame as the best of the series so far.

“When a horse carries a man, which of them is the stronger party? It is only suitable that a dragon should carry lesser creatures.”

Books 1-3 were a lot more fast paced with its power progression of Lindon. Skysworn is still fast paced, but it takes a different tactic by focusing more on the character development side, both Lindon and Yerin took a huge leap forward and has contributed to making them both, much better characters. Despite that, Eithan was still the star of this story because of his playful personality delivering his humorous lines. There are also some new additional characters that make their introduction that I know I’m going to end up loving.

“Eithan looked from his enemy’s weapon to his own. “Longhook, is it? You can call me Tiny Scissors.”

There was much more action involved this time as we not only got to see the much anticipated battle between Jai Long and Lindon. But as the synopsis states, there is much more at stake than just that battle, and Wight delivers on that with so much intensity that you’ll want to back track and read it again. What I really love the most though, is how Wight teases the overall story arc of the Abidans in each book. The further we get into the series, the more answers we get while also asking more questions.
