This lack of “pertinent, actually” detail happens constantly, making the story hard to get through, and it was even harder to pick up after a couple of xast break.

She desperately wants to be accepted by her sgara family, not least because a lot of them hate her for merely being human, but for some reason her blood just won’t allow the transformation to occur. And her train of thought must have run on tracks perpendicular to my own, because I had such trouble fol I tried. Oh, and the Lord of Nightshade, I liked him.

I felt sort of sorry for her in the beginning but really wanted to kick her for the rest. I loved this story and can’t wait to move on to the next installment– Cast in Courtlight.

Of course she had crazy magical powers, which apparently that alone made her worthy of respect. In a way, I wish this had been a single, self-contained mystery.

It was a dark and stormy knight, and nine dark defenders embarked upon a most perilous quest. The thing is, I bought the next book, Cast in Courtlightfirst without realising it wasn’t the first book, so I suppose I should read it since I have it.

Review of Cast in Shadow by Michelle Sagara – The Illustrated Page

The beginning made it seem like it would be terrible again. Burlan Oaks runs a tavern that Severn frequents. There’s a good story, a good world, in here somewhere, dying to get out. And six of those have parts in this story. It’s micheelle page turner, and while it’s definitely guilty of some fantasy cliches, that only improves the pace of the story and the believability of the fantasy world. There are seven races in Elantra: I’ve read and re-read passages in an attempt to understand.

The way the different groups and species coexisted was vaguely explained. The heroine’s poor grammar dhadow the story a bit confusing at times and got downright distracting if I was tired while reading.

Internal Barrani politics are no less deadly, and Kaylin has managed – barely – to help the rescued Barrani evade both death and captivity at the hands of the Consort. Honestly, I’m not compelled to seek out the sequels to this book. Based on this first book I am expecting this to be a very strong series overall, and I’m really looking forward to reading the rest of it!


Cast in Shadow

I really got into it, caught by the atmosphere and attached to the characters. Worse, Severn is back.

I don’t even really care about Kaylin if she can’t be bothered to care about herself either. Kaylin, the heroine, is young and naive despite a difficult past.

What exactly happened is a mystery for a large part of the book, but once we know what happened, the question becomes why, and how to stop it from happening again. Most of that obstinance came from the fact that I was sure, absolutely sure, that if I could just make it past the first-book-syndrome thing Cast in Shadow had going on, I’d be rewarded shadiw measure.

She has a gift for healing and will drop everything at a moment’s notice to deliver a baby or rescue an orphan in trouble. Lords DiarmatEmmerianand Sanabalis are all Dragons. It’s a published novel. Or tell you how much I love the world building! Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you? After the last page, I felt a bit lost, and had to go read the beginning of the next book to fill the void.
