Review: Oath of Servitude by C.E. Wilson

Title: Oath of Servitude
Series: The Punishment Sequence #1
Author: C.E. Wilson
Pub. Date: September 2012


This is the story of Teague and Cailin, two teenagers who have been brought together by fate. Teague, a human, struggles to come to terms with the consequences of a recent accident that has destroyed the happy life that he had once enjoyed. Cailin, a pixi, is trying to stay true to herself while fighting against forces beyond her control that have exiled her from her home into this strange world of humans. She fears the darkness. He cannot escape it. But when the two of them are thrown together, they begin to discover the light inside of themselves.


My Thoughts

The plot of the book was very interesting and it got my attention from the first chapter. I liked how Teague and Cailin had different situations they each had to deal with and how the result was kind of similar since they were both marginalized. Teague by his own doing, after he had a tragic accident, and Cailin by her pixie clan. I also felt that if the book didn't have the fantasy elements, it would easily read as a contemporary romance book.

Teague and Cailin's interactions were entertaining and cute. I loved them so much I couldn't wait for their next scene. However, it did feel a little too much like insta-love. In this case, I let it go because I took into consideration that they were together almost 24/7 and that made it a bit more plausible.

I liked the air of mystery surrounding Teague's family and it had me wondering what was what when it came to them until the very end. I did wish more was more revealed about this in this book. And I also wanted a little more from Teague's PoV.

Although, I did like the book because of the plot and main characters, I have to mention there were awkward transitions between chapters and point of views, and pronoun confusion in some occasions.

Basically, the book is a quick read with a good plot that keeps you guessing. I think with a revision to fix some things, it will be even better. I will definitely be on the look out for book number two.

My rating is three (3) out of five (5).

Thanks to C.E. Wilson for providing me with a copy of her book. I really enjoyed it.
