“The magic within Edun’s world plays along with the message she portrays in her series as a whole, each person (is) unique. This is a wonderful message for the younger readers during a time when they are discovering who they are, telling them that they have a unique talent that they will discover they have.

With the intriguing and unique story, characters, world, and message, Sworn To Raise is a great beginning to Edun’s self-published series. Though many young adult book series are incredibly similar as well as predictable, there are a few writers who can break the mold. Writers like Edun have created a young adult series that can capture the attention of both younger and older readers…”

I get this question all the time and I’m happy to personally speak to each and every parent or teacher or librarian to assure them that my books are geared towards a young adult audience and appropriate (I hope) for most young adult/teen readers. It’s aimed to be a compelling read for all ages with no graphic sexual content or gratuitous cursing. If you need comparisons, then Harry Potter & the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling, City of Bones by Cassandra Clare, and Divergent by Veronica Roth will give you an idea of the content style.
