Publisher's Summary

Torn between loyalty and love, a young prince will learn how much he’s willing to sacrifice as he tries to destroy the rebellion that threatens his throne in the exhilarating sequel to Bonds of Brass.

“A knockout.” (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

Gal’s destiny has always been clear: Complete his training at the military academy, prove his worth as a royal successor, and ascend to the galactic throne. When a failed assassination plot against Gal sends him and Ettian - his infuriatingly enticing roommate - on a mad dash through the stars, Gal’s plans are momentarily disrupted. But he was born to rule the Umber Empire, and with Ettian by his side, nothing will stop him from returning home and crushing the growing insurgency threatening his family’s power.

Yet nothing is ever that simple in war - or in love. Gal is captured by the rebellion during a skirmish and faces public execution, his grand fate cut short. To save Gal’s life, Ettian does the unthinkable: He reveals himself as the secret heir to the fallen Archon Empire and rightful leader of the rebellion...and, therefore, Gal’s sworn enemy. Now a political hostage in this newly reignited conflict, Gal must use his limited resources to sabotage the rebellion from within, concoct an escape plan, and return to the empire he’s destined to lead. And if that means taking down the man he thought he loved?

All the better.

Critic Reviews

Oaths of Legacy is a wildly thrilling and fast-paced sci-fi adventure, and equal parts a heart-wrenching romance torn asunder by bloodrights and galactic war.” (Your Money Geek) 

“Skrutskie is a master of perspective." (But Why Tho?)

“Skrutskie’s breathless, brilliantly written action sequences and tear-jerking quieter moments will keep readers enthralled. [Oaths of Legacy] is a knockout.” (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

Great Series

Loved the first audible in the series, and then was so excited to get to the second to discover the book is being read from the other characters point of view, and now by a different narrator who doesnt do the accent given to the character from the reader in the first book. Once I got past that, I still had to use the 30 second back button often as there was no real difference in the voice or tone of this narrator so its easier to lose track of who’s saying what. Also some strange pauses and emphasis at points that didnt really make sense. Overall love the books, just wish this audible would have got the same treatment as the last. Hope the bring back the first guy for the final book!

Good story, rubbish narrating

The narrator for the first book wasn't anywhere near the best I've ever listened to, but I sorely wish he would have been brought on for this book instead.

A SEQUEL DONE RIGHT

At first I didn’t know how to feel about a pov change but this, This was incredible. I cried and laughed and cheered alongside the characters. It was honest and passionate in all the right places. This is truly one of my all time favorites.

Just WOW

Holy hell (rutt), that was a good one. I stumbled into this series by accident not even a year ago and I’m very glad that I did. It’s rare that a book sequel holds its own and maybe even has a shot at eclipsing the first.

Really enjoyed the switch of perspective from Ettienne to Gal. At first I was a little wary but I warmed up to it fast. Gal is a jerk but he definitely grew on me, even more than in the first book. The book was a good blend of emotions. I’m VERY glad the book didn’t end purely on an anxiety inducing note. Definitely a solid cliff hanger for a hot second buttttt it almost could be left just as it is, startling yet logical. Super excited for the next book. I really value Skrutskie’s balanced approach to storytelling. She never goes overboard on any one idea, mood, writing trope, etc. She lets the story flow naturally, but intentionally.

The beginning of the last hour (before the semi-expected but still surprise twist) was really sweet and had me choked up. The flame knight and emperors moment hit me right in the feels. Followed by Gal’s choice, that really rocked my world. The deep underlying sense of profound yet blossoming love between the 3 main characters is powerful.

Loved the book, have no complaints, really looking forward to the next.

I never review things but this series has captivated me from the start.

Keep rocking on Skrutskie, you got a way with words. Sky’s the limit with book 3, I really hope you follow your gut and stay true to the characters and narrative cus it’s rock solid.

How dare you list this in the LGBT books

Where was your editor, this is at least 11 chapters long, slow slow slow! Please don’t consider reading this if your looking for a love story, it’s not, clearly written by someone without a clue! The story labours way too long and it’s the most terrible cliché. I have read and listened to 1000s of books in my time this ranks in the top
10 of the worst. The first one was an utter struggle, having downloaded both at the same time, I was obliged to listen. It’s taken me 3 weeks to listen to these. Considering I can get through 3 books a week. There is zero romance, no passion. The two main characters could as easily have met in a supermarket, “said hello” then carried on! That’s it! Utterly pointless and time I will never get back. Pease don’t waste your time. Clearly the previous reviewers are friends of the author?
