Cast In Shadow
Cast In Shadow | Michelle Sagara
Seven years ago Kaylin fled the crime-riddled streets of Nightshade, knowing that something was after her. Children were being murdered and all had the same odd markings that mysteriously appeared on her own skin. Since then, she's learned to read, she's learned to fight and she's become one of the vaunted Hawks who patrol and police the City of Elantra. Alongside the winged Aerians and the immortal Barrani, she's made a place for herself, far from the mean streets of her birth. But children are once again dying, and a dark and familiar pattern is emerging. Kaylin is ordered back into Nightshade with a partner she knows she can't trust, a Dragon lord for a companion and a device to contain her powers powers that no other human has. Her task is simple find the killer, stop the murdersand survive the attentions of those who claim to be her allies!

This series of over 10 books, starting with the tagged book, is kind of a police procedural but with magic and dragons. And a multiverse. #alphabetgame #LetterC @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

Something is stalking the streets of Nightshade and it‘s linked to Kaylin‘s past so she has to go back to face it, along with her old acquaintance Severn and the dragon lord Tiamaris.

It‘s been slow to take off with a lot of history hinted at but not told. Now, around the halfway mark, it‘s taking off and some history is being filled in
💖 💖 💖🤍🤍

humouress I know I sometimes think an author is 'telling' too much instead of just 'showing' but I often feel a bit lost in this book; I could do with being told a bit more. But I know a lot of people like this series and I did like 'The Broken Crown' by the same author so I will continue with this series for a bit. Besides - I've already got the next couple of books 😊 (edited) 1y

Imaginary places The song lyrics are bonkers 😄

One of my favorite imaginary places is the Elantra series by Michelle Sagara. Feels like a walled city with magic, mages, dragon emperor, Barrani (similar to fae), Aerians (humanoid with wings), Tha'lanni (telepathic race), Leontine (lion race) and regular old humans (poor things).

Cinfhen I agree. Lyrics are bonkers but I quite like the song !! Book sounds fantastical 4y
BarbaraBB The lyrics 😂 4y

This is fun so far. It feels like the world is big and I am getting just enough character backstory to wonder but not so little I'm annoyed.

Mehso-so

This book was okay. For being the first in the series, it felt like it was missing a lot of world building and background information. I understand that we had the same information as the main character, Kaylin, but at some points it was frustrating. I probably won't continue on with this series.

This book was perfect for vacation: 1st in a long series with a punky human heroine finding her place as an emerging power in a world where humans are usually fragile and powerless. Kept me up at night, which is saying something as during the day, I was fulfilling a lifelong dream of visiting some Maya cities. Now I need a vacation from my vacation, so I'll look forward to the sequels! #fantasy #vacationread
