Breaking the tenets of Special Forces means one thing. Death.
Thorrn has his life mapped out – be the best swordsman in the king’s army and become Captain one day. What doesn’t fit in with his plans is some short, unimpressive waif claiming to be his soul companion.
Evyn cannot quite believe that this world of Oberrot is real, but grey grass is hard to fake. To expose her true origins risks all-out war with the magical community that covets her blood.
But when the king demands that he hand Evyn over, Thorrn is confronted with a choice: protect Evyn and keep her secret from the magical community who would drain her for the power resonating inside her, or turn her over to save his career, family name and reputation.
When a powerful mage moves against the kingdom, Thorrn and Evyn will have to summon all their courage. But they find allies from unexpected corners – including different worlds and times. For alongside the realms of Oberrot and Earth are the multiverses, and one of them should surely be able to help...
A swordsman, an apothecarist, a shy librarian (“I’m beginning to think being underestimated is kind of my superpower”), and a powerful mage. Only they can save the kingdom.
A page-turning new adventure awaits, from a fresh voice in fantasy. Contains twinned souls with a twist, enemies to inseparable friends, coming of age, learning to accept yourself and others, some epic swordfights, and a smattering of romance.
Editorial reviews:
‘The Tenets in the Tattoos’ by Becky James is the first in an ambitious YA Fantasy series. The storyline is ambitious in its scope and really is one for fans of fantasy and science fiction, with multiple tropes all utilised to great effect as Thorrn and Evyn’s path unfolds.This is a strong new fantasy title.
"The Tenets in the Tattoos by Becky James is a Young Adult Fantasy Adventure told in our main protagonists Thorrn’s point of view. James has created a unique, new twist on soulmates that was refreshing and genius! James’ world building is exceptional as it sucks you right in and is executed perfectly.
I love a story with strong side characters and The Tenets in the Tattoos has this in spades. James’ characters are strong, fully developed and hilarious (yes, I caught myself quite a few times laughing out loud!).
I look forward to future books in The King’s Swordsman series and highly recommend it to anyone who loves fantasy that keeps you on the edge of your seat, character redemption and amazing world building!"
