Brian Langford had once again disappointed his father and was being shipped out to sea and a life of servitude before the change came upon him. The one thing that he had from his past was his sword which proved to be a blessing as he rose up in the world of the House of Night to become the youngest Sword Master ever and the desire of many fledgling admirers. He never wanted to settle for one woman, but when he meets the new professor, there is nothing more he wants but to make her his own.
After a lifetime together, the past was too much to face. The man who had declared himself and pledged to be her protector, to temper strength and mercy, was gone, along with his precious Lenobia. He was no longer bound to a priestess, no longer bound to anything or anyone but vengeance.
This short look at Brian Langford’s life before he came to be the Sword Master at House of Night – Tulsa was both insightful and emotional. His youth spent as the “ultimate” ladies man was a far cry from the stalwart and honorable husband of his beloved Lenobia and the trusted advisor of the students of the House of Night. Listening to the emotions he battled within his fight to stay true to his pledge was very hard and emphasized the consequences that his decision will influence in the continuing battle against Nyx. If you have never listened to this series on audio, you have definitely been missing out. Caitlin Davies does an exceptional job at portraying the characters as she narrates this novella. Bringing the book to life, she wrings out the emotion and angst of each character as they fight both physical dangers and internal battles with themselves. Dragon’s Oath is definitely a great compliment to the series of novels from which it stemmed.
