When 20-year-old Eliana’s father orders her to court, it is with one purpose: to save their noble, destitute family through marriage to a wealthy suitor. Eliana would much rather be studying healing and making use of her rare magical talent for medicines, but there is no escaping his command. She has eight short weeks to find a match she can stomach, or else she’ll be married off to the cruel, despicable man of her father’s choosing.

Navigating court politics is difficult for nervous Eliana, who is determined to take up as little space as possible. Worst of all, she only has eyes for the Queen’s nephew, Corin: a brooding, rugged knight who is already betrothed to another. Though he returns Eliana’s feelings, he’s as trapped by duty as she is. But even as Corin struggles against his own family’s shackles, he is driven by a singular purpose: to rid the land of the bandits terrorizing the Queen’s people.

As the outlaws circle the capital city, Corin and Eliana turn their focus and their talents towards helping the vulnerable common folk who live outside the palace walls. But the bandits have a patron who aims to spread dissent amongst the crumbling ranks of the nobility. The more lives Corin and Eliana save, the more enemies they are both making… and the closer her father’s deadline draws.

This slow-burn friends-to-lovers explores an exciting new fantasy kingdom with subtle magic, steamy encounters, and danger lurking around every bend.

knight’s oath review

my absolute favourite thing about this book was the inclusion of plus sized characters. for some reason this isn’t a common feature in fantasy books, and i found it rather refreshing. i particularly liked how eliana never once tried to lose weight or shamed herself for being bigger.

all of the characters in knight’s oath were loveable and relatable. eliana and rachiele were two strong women, with a loving friendship. i could read a book where it’s just those two all day long.

corin on the other hand was a bit more complex. at first, he’s portrayed as mysterious. after a bit, all mysteriousness has gone out the window (wherein he becomes like a lost puppy).

i loved the plot of this book. i was hooked the whole way through and didn’t get bored. the use of magic was well written into the story, and i’m eager to see where things with go with eliana after the events at the end.

overall, knight’s oath was a good blend of historical fiction and fantasy and i look forward to reading the next book in the series.

    Nice review, I don’t read much fantasy, but you’re right, I don’t think I’ve ever seen plus sized characters in them.

      if you’re into historical fiction, you might enjoy this one. there’s a lot of historically accurate things throughout that i really enjoyed (just the minor inclusion of magic, which isn’t touched on enough in my opinion).

      i wish more books included plus sized characters.

    Thanks for your review! I love fantasy and I haven’t found many NA fantasy series. They’re either YA or adult. I’ll put this one on my TBR!

      i’ve read the odd one (i think elise kova’s married to magic and jennifer l armentrout’s from blood and ash series might be! the protagonists are over 18 – although barely).

      i hope you enjoy reading this one!

      i’m so glad you love historical fantasy too! i seems to be an awkward genre that a lot of people miss. i just love that it merges my two favourite genres into one!!
      and thank you! i’ve had the postcard props for a while but never used them as nothing really suited (but the mc sends a lot of letters in this book, so i thought it fit!)
