I enjoyed this book quite a bit. The author had an interesting spin on magic, with the "shadebinder" aspect, and other things. The plot was generally interesting, as well as the characters.
I'm also happy that it was "clean", so okay to give to a teenager from that perspective as well.
Protagonists seemed to be "young adult" types.
I'm also really happy that it didnt do the "adults/parents are idiots, children have to save the day" cliché. (nor did all the adults die. There was a limited amount of orphan-ness, but there were still siblings involved, so no harry potter syndrome.)
Nor did it do the "children are idiots, parents save the day", exactly either. There was some amount of balance between older adult activity and younger. Each generation played its part. Big thumbs-up for that.

There WAS some rather gruesomeness in dungeons, so it wouldnt be good for really younger readers. But good for older ones, plus I enjoyed reading it as an adult as well.

negative points:
The ending was a bit "deus ex machina", so disappointing in that regard.
But overall, I was happy with the ending.
Also, it was a bit too glib about talk of "gods", and such. But hey, it's "fantasy" setting, so that's somewhat expected.

I ordered this after reading and loving the author's "Unicorn on Speed-Dial". That was more comic, this book is more an adventure, but just as good. I enjoy the way the author creates her universe, without being overbearing about it. The plot was sometimes a bit over-complicated or unclear, hence only 4 stars, but I enjoyed the story arc and the way she developed the characters.

One of the better authors out there. Definitely a worthwhile read. Enjoyed the book.

Caprio the Being, who look like a goat, takes pleasure, if that is the right word to describe the emotions of a Caprine apparition, in causing troubles for the living. He lives to interfere with the human comedy though that frustrates his companion the Shadebinder, who wants rumors about them stopped.

The cabinetmaker Farren knows first hand much about ghosts, shades, and spirits including his late Aunt Nan who nags him all the time about "living" conditions and surviving relatives. While most of his neighbors fear he is either insane or a Shadebinder, the enslaver of the dead, Farren refuses to hide.

Anyone who Princess Mericia of Ailsandia cares about is lucky to die; worse is those who survive her kindness as they suffer unbearably. Feeling despondent she considers hiding from human contact.

In the King's Stable, Caprio begins his latest game ignoring the concerns of the Shadebinder. Using human greed as a tool, he sets in motion his ingenious plot to cause troubles as high as the King and as low as the stable boy. Only the two "outcasts", Farren and Mericia, if they merge their talents, might see the true eyes of the world and stop the Being's nefarious scheme.

THE SHADEBINDER'S OATH is a terrific fantasy that grips the audience from the moment a young lad shows courage while on a dare to visit the Shadebinder in the King's stable and never slows down until the final contest occurs. The story line is action-packed as Caprio does his Machiavellian machinations while two unlikely allies, the cabinetmaker and the princess, join forces to save the Kingdom of Ailsandia from the Being's mischievousness and that of human foibles and follies. Jeanette Cottrell provides a wonderful tale.
