Avim's Oath (Part Six of the Okal Rel Saga)
Love and titles are lost and won as two brothers struggle to attain power, recognition, and acceptance in a world filled with treachery and hatred.
The Queen is dead. Two princes are suddenly thrust center-stage to vie for a throne neither really wants, orchestrated by the ambitions of power-hungry princesses.
Amel, the elder, would prefer a quiet life — but is being pressured into the pursuit of power by the alarmingly beautiful princess Alivda.
Erien, the younger, wants to start an academy of science on their planet — but is being pursued by the leige Vretla, who intends to bear the prince’s child.
Trapped in a tangle of torment, the two brothers must prove themselves, choosing between lives they desire, and the roles for which they are demanded.

Praise for the writing of Lynda Williams
“The Okal Rel Saga is culturally complex and politically tangled, an epic tale of clashing civilizations and worldviews.” — Dru Pagliassotti, The Harrow
“Plenty of action with great world building and well-written characters. This one is a keeper. And made me want more of the Okal Rel universe.” — Pam Allan, ConNotations Magazine
“It must be said that the richness and vibrancy of the entire universe Williams has created is so intricate and well-planned that sometimes, it takes a couple of readings to get your head completely around some of the sub-themes and off-screen action. That being said, each time you read one of these books, it’s a different journey, a different experience; almost a different story…” — Nathalie Mallett, author, The Princes of the Golden Cage
“With a great universe, full and life-like characters, spellbinding story line, Lynda Williams’ books are a must read for any person who enjoys a GOOD sci-fi novel.” — Ky Leishner, Amazon.com
“...If readers enjoys fast-moving complicated plots, swordplay, relationships, and a setting involving different worlds and space opera, they should be well satisfied.” — Ronald Hore, CM Magazine
"The Okal Rel Saga is a fascinating complex world of deep, rich characters experiencing cultural, political and religious conflicts amid fast-paced action. The series explores relationships and philosophical differences between the people of Gelion and those of Rire. These two worlds have long been separated due to galactic conflict and they have developed into nearly opposing viewpoints through which our beloved characters must carefully navigate. Those lovers of space opera and romance won’t be disappointed either as Lynda Williams lets her characters experiences some of the best and the worst of emotions and raw experiences written to spark the imagination." — Bobbie DuFault
"...This is an odd series that mixes hints of romance with high adventure and it's an example of a type no longer popular in SF, and probably never particularly realistic. It does, however, make for a colorful story of high adventure with a touch of, in this case at least, distorted romance...." — Don D'Ammassa
