    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.

    What would have made Cast in Shadow better?

    The main character was tedious. I wanted to put her in "time out" until she turned 30.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Michelle Sagara again?

    I would check out more information on the book before I would purchase another book by Ms Sagara.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Khristine Hvam?

    Ms. Hvam did a good job as narrator, just didn't have much to work with for the main character who was predictable in her reactions.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was disappointed with the book. I had already purchased the seond book in the series and could not even get started listening to it.
