Eye of the Sword by Karyn Henley

Eye of the Sword by Karyn Henley is a fantasy story set in Camrithia.  Trevin lives in Camrithia, described as a "land of shadows and mystical secrets.  He has been proclaimed as a comain, captain of the king's army.  He loves the King Laetham's daughter, Malaia, but must leave her behind in order to fulfill his quest of finding Melaia's harps and the  missing comains of the army.  Melaia must have all three of the harps in order to restore the stairway to heaven upon the lining up of the stars.   King Laetham wishes to marry his daughter to the Dregmoorian prince in order to restore peace to the kingdom even though he knows that the neighboring Dremoorian's ruler cannot be trusted.  Trevin is willing to risk his life for the quest and he must go through fire caves, rogue winds, and murderous plots against his life in order to try to complete his quest.
This is the second part of the Angelaeon Circle series.  It would have probably been easier to understand if I had read the first book but I quickly caught on to the story of intrigue.  It was a fast paced book of twists and turns as the reader follows Trevin into the unknown.  I would recommend this book to young people aged preteens and up.  Good book that should be read by lovers of fantasy of all ages.
