Joanne Bertin's Bard's Oath is a story of feuding, revenge, and ultimately the fight for justice as Bard Leet attempts to punish those he believes robbed him of the love of his life and of his nephew, pursuing a series of deadly grudges against his own compatriots. Lord Sevrynel's renowned horse fair is where our story begins, where enemies race for wealth and pride, the darkest of magic is called upon and innocent lives put in peril. The fate of one man, on trial for a heinous murder, will ultimately depend upon Linden, the strongest of the dragonlords. With the help of his loyal companions, Linden must discover where the true evil lies and expose it before it's too late.

Praise For Bard's Oath (Dragonlord #3)

“Readers will appreciate the unusual music-based plot and masterly world-building.” —Publishers Weekly

“Bertin's series of dragon-people, magic and intrigue is fantasy at its best.” —The Parkersburg (WV) News and Sentinel

“The third book in Bertin's Dragonlord series will not disappoint. Both longtime fans and new readers alike should find this book easy to fall into, as Bertin spins an epic filled with fantastic creatures (both dragon and human) and betrayal. Though this book was long in the making, the wait seems to have been well worth it; Bertin's love for her subject spills from each page. This one should occupy shelf space next to the dragon books of McCaffery and Rawn.” —RT Book Reviews

“The first Dragonlords fantasy in years is an engaging investigative thriller that enables the audi-ence to see close up the Bertin world enhanced by the concept that the music is the magic.” —Genre Go Round Reviews

“I got what I expected! And more! This third book in the series continues the author's trend of making the story very much different than those before but with characters the reader already knows and loves. This time around Joanne Bertin gave me a fantasy mystery novel. It was much more of a mystery starring Dragonlords, horses, et al., than either a romance or an adventure.” —Bookspot Central
