The Oathbreaker’s Shadow by Amy McCulloch
Expected publication: June 6th 2013 by Random House Children’s Publisher
Love this cover! The minute I saw it, I knew I was hooked!
Fifteen-year-old Raim lives in a world where you tie a knot for every promise that you make. Break that promise and you are scarred for life, and cast out into the desert.
Raim has worn a simple knot around his wrist for as long as he can remember. No one knows where it came from, and which promise of his it symbolises, but he barely thinks about it at all—not since becoming the most promising young fighter ever to train for the elite Yun guard. But on the most important day of his life, when he binds his life to his best friend (and future king) Khareh, the string bursts into flames and sears a dark mark into his skin.
Scarred now as an oath-breaker, Raim has two options: run, or be killed.
A gripping YA action-adventure fantasy, the first part of a planned duology
Ok seriously, raise hands who also got reminded of Prince of Persia?? That was my initial thought when I saw the cover! And… I love the cover, there is something amazing about the colors, and … the boy! He looks fierce, kick ass and I want to meet him!!!!
